5.0 out of 5 stars Highly entertaining short stories August 17, 2013
By William
Format:Kindle Edition
I read and enjoyed the first GrailChase novel, so this collection of short fiction was a welcome return to that realm. Several of the main characters from the novel appear in these tales, which use the same blend of history and fiction to produce thoroughly engaging stories. If you haven't read the novel, this might be a good starting place. You'll drink these down fast and be thirsty for more. And if you have read the novel, here are some delightful lagniappes to satiate you till the next novel appears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Intriguing September 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Before the Chase" holds three "prequel" short stories introducing main characters in the upcoming full-length novel, "GrailChase!"
Beautifully written, and somehow intriguingly beckoning, you will be left with an excitement to discover more about this world and these people with their steampunk gadgets and mystical secrets--and with an Autumn 2013 projected publication date for "GrailChase!" the wait won't be long!
Well done, Ms. Fogel! More, please!
--Lloyd Matthew Thompson, author of the The Energy Anthology chakra series

5.0 out of 5 stars Tantalizing Glimpses July 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This anthology was a tantalizing morsel into the characters and forces moving within the dark mysteries of Grailchase!, the novel by Dara Fogel. In it, we meet the three main characters of the novel, all at points before the story begins, but at turning points in their lives. They have each reached the fork in the road that places their feet on the path of the chase.

It is an engaging read in itself, a collection of three short stories, but it will make you wish to learn more. Enjoy it for a quick read, or as an introduction to a much deeper and more mysterious story.

I wasn't sure how, how I would feel about these stories, but was surprised of their descriptive charm and settings along with interesting characters. The conversations seemed unforced and natural for the period. The protection of the Holy Grail being their major tasks against the Darker Brotherhood from Bavaria keeps their roles of the Lighter Brotherhood as the keepers of the Grail at all costs. D'Amici has to fullfill his ancient duty as the protector of the faith. He deems his sacred duty to sacrifice himself for the greater cause. He is the first knight and defender of the Holy Grail, and his loyalty must be the foremost to the Grail Guardians. The short stories set up the longer novel and introduce the cast of it. I like the short stories, and will read the first book of the Grail Chase when I have time to spend on it. I like Dara Fogel's introduction anthology of her longer book.
