I realised I forgot to mention I picked up these short story collections from indie authors a few weeks ago – sometimes I forget to add Kindle books to my StS posts because it’s so easy to click ‘buy’ and have it show up on the Kindle…
Magic and science combine in this anthology of futuristic fairytales, ballads, and lyrical poetry. Contains five retellings:
Deep Blue Nightmare
Blood of My Blood.
I would really like to read a Nenia Campbell book seeing as how so many people like them, but her published works just don’t really appeal to me. Except this one 🙂
Four short fairy tales: Woman of the Well, The Piper, Crystalline and Slipstream. Deep within a tangled forest where shadows pooled between the ancient trees and black-winged ravens perched high on twisted lichen covered limbs, a young man lay dying…
I love fairy tales and Gina is one of the sweetest people I know on Goodreads.
Found guilty of witchcraft, Lilith, a young orphan and an indentured servant, is minutes away from being hung. But destiny disagrees…
Rescued, she is guided to Branwen Tower where Ge-Iad, a powerful sorcerer, awaits her. It seems Lilith has found true happiness at last: a home free from persecution and a mentor who will teach her how to use her newfound magic.
But appearances can be deceiving. As the months pass, Lilith becomes aware that beneath the facade of safety lays a dark and disturbing world of demon summoning, corpse collection, and blood ritual.
As Lilith navigates the dangers, she stumbles upon a hidden key and a flask of glowing blue liquid. The items lead to shocking revelation, forcing Lilith to quickly master her fears and her magic. For failure brings a fate worse than death—eternal slavery to the ruthless sorcerer.
Sounds like a really interesting fantasy. Witchcraft, magic, with a Gothic feel to it. And the cover really appeals to me, it reminds me of my favourite fantasies from the 80s and 90s.
