Breaking The Myth: A Collection of Unusual Myth Retellings Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The concept behind this collection of stories was pretty unique and very interesting; reimagining rare myths. As a fan of both imagination and mythology I was very excited to read this set and I was not let down! I loved most of the stories, in my opinion only one or two dragged, but the rest pulled me in and made me want to know MORE!
I enjoyed the variety of tales told, some sweet, some a bit steamer. They had great action, memorable characters, epic romances, and sacrifices. There is literally something for everyone in this collection!
I encourage you to grab a copy and get swept up today!
I wasn't sure about this at first. I find prequels are either fantastic or total duds. But I really like this one. It was great to see another side of Beira and learn some of her motivations. I really liked Colan. Good, quick read that actually adds to the main story.
Through the Storms by Laura Greenwood and Skye Mackinnon
I really like Amber and Izban. Amber has been bullied, but tries to rise above it. She is smart and has an inner core of strength. I like how Izban encourage Amber. I can’t wait to read more about Amber and Izban in future books,
Mother of the Gods by Skye Mackinnon
This is the story of the parents of Wynter (from the Daughter of Wynter series). Beira is the mother of the Gods and is lonely. She creates Colan, but he has a little bit more free will than she was expecting. I like that Colan pushes Beira out of her comfort zone. This is a beautiful but bittersweet story.
Kelpie’s Curse by Roz Marshall
Corinne plays a VR game and is sucked into the fae world. Elphin has been cursed and can’t escape the fae world. This is the prequel for a series. I was intrigued by parts, but Corinne seems pretty naive and trusts a little too easily. I like Elphin, while he knows he needs Corinne, he seems to really care for her and is protective of her. I may check out the next book in the series to see what happens,
White Wolf, Black Wold by Arizona Tape
This story is connected to the Winter Wolf series. This isn’t a romance. This story is more about the love and relationship between 2 brothers and is based on the Romulus and Remus mythology. The story is well written. It is bittersweet and gets you in the feels.
The Hound by KC Carter
The writing was good and I wanted to like it, but it just didn’t catch my interest.
Blinded Love by Bea Paige
This is the story of Medusa and Tiresias. Medusa is a brothel owner and Tiresias is assigned as her personal slave. They are both trapped in their own ways and yet grow to care deeply about each other. It was beautiful seeing their relationship develop. I hope to see more of Medusa and Tiresias’ story in the future.
The Stolen Bride by Gina Wynn
I had never heard the fairy tale this story is based on, but I really liked the story. Sylvie is great, she has been through a lot and is a strong character. I really like her banter with Grim. Grim is great too. I really want to see more of Sylvie and Grim and see where their relationship goes.
Hear Me Cry by Amanda J. Evans
What a beautiful story. The love between Sean and Isla is beautiful. This is a complete short story and it really gets you in the feels. This is the first story by this author I have read, but I will definitely check out more.
The Faerie Flag by Alison Ingleby
This is a complete novella. I love the Irish mythology and I really like Fin and Liusaidh. They are both willing to go to any length for the people they love.
Through The Storms by Laura Greenwood & Skye MacKinnon – we get to see Amber and Izban’s story, who we know of from From The Deeps. I loved seeing the two of them meet and interact with each other. I’m really looking forward to more of them.
Mother of Gods by Skye MacKinnon – I loved seeing this new side of Beira, I didn’t like her at all in Winter Princess, but I understand her better and really feel for her
White Wolf, Black Wolf by Arizona Tape – the story of twin brother pit against each other by their father, I loved their connection and loyalty to each other. There were twists I didn’t expect and I was glued to the page
Blinded Love by Bea Paige – a unique Medusa retelling, I loved seeing how she was affected by what she is. It was a beautiful love story
