Faeries are part of mythology the world over, past, present, and future. Called elves, brownies, the fae, and more, they evoke a sense of wonder and a little danger. Faery has its own rules, and humans enter at their peril. In this spirit, we bring you the first book in the Myths Untold anthology series—four stories from the land of the Fae: a homeless man in Cardiff and the luck that could destroy him; the trans man in future San Francisco who falls for an elf; the village boy who has always been a little different; and a faery prince whose birthright was stolen from him. Welcome to Faery.
Okay, I have to be honest, the only reason why I said yes to this because of Brandon Witt. I simply can not get enough of his writing. What I found after finishing the whole thing, that yes once again Mr. Witt did not disappoint me, also that a couple of authors I’ve enjoyed in the past have climbed up a notch or two and I have a new one to watch out for.
These are not the HEA Princess and Prince tales. These are darker, dangerous, edgy. Nice change
All four have a rip your heart out, moral side that will you reeling for days. I’m not spoiling it by saying if they are based loosely or not on the everyday tales we grew up with, that’s something the next reader with have to figure out. But I will say, read carefully, thoughtfully and have tissues.
Each story is different from it’s brother story and like what I did should read one, read a book and read another. I wouldn’t read all four at once. Let them have there own glory before reading they next.
Glyn and Farrokh would like you to realize the time they spent on the streets in Cardiff is different from that of Quay and is possible Kingdom.
And Tyler and Colton would also like to have a few minutes to spend in each others worlds.
This is one anthology I will be reading again.
