Some of the selections are playful like the mermaid bedtime story “A Fish Tale,” or endearing like “Just What the Doctor Ordered,” in which two pixies get soused in a pitcher of mojitos. Others like “The Healer” take on mythic proportions and read like ancient legends.
But most delve into the mysterious and magical nature of the world around us and our journey through it. The theme of rebirth and self-discovery appear in both story and poem form, and these were perhaps my favorites because they felt both personal and universal. “The Rebirth” is a gorgeous haibun/tanka poem. “The Fairy Spider’s Lair” is full of Earth magic, and “The Pond” is a story that spoke to my soul. Just gorgeous.
I could go on and on, but you’ll have to pick up this book and read them yourself.
This book is a gem. I got more than my money’s worth for my 99 cents. I learned not only the history of fairies, but also the classifications of fairies. And that was just in the first few pages. “Fairies, Myth, and Magic” is a heterogeneous mix of short stories and poems, interlaced with historical tidbits and other asides.
The story I liked best was “Myth of the Fairy Star.” Well done, Ms. Chesebro. “The Leaving” was also great.
In conclusion, I’d recommend this book to anyone. It’s a fun, quick read. I enjoyed it immensely.
Fairy spirit guides—
rescue me from my wild dreams;
fear controls my heart.
This finely constructed English haiku is a good example of the quality you will find within these pages. And for the price? Yes, there is magic within.
In this book, Chesebro introduces us to fairies, pixies, and various other mythical creatures who come alive in her stories. There is an assortment of short stories, haibuns, haikus and touching stories, all sprinkled with magic. Read about this author's real life encounter with a Swamp Fairy, which became the inspiration for her first book, The Swamp Fairy, in Book 1 of The Heartstone Chronicles. Read about Roger's Ringing Ears, an introduction to the magical beginnings of The Sisters of the Fey, stories with lovespells and how they can backfire, Dragons and Karma, impaired pixies, and many more!
Heartwarming, humorous and entertaining are just some of the emotions and reactions I felt while reading this book. If you enjoy magical stories, you'll love this book!

Colleen transports you to the magical world of fairies, slowly opening each door to reveal the wonders of fairy kingdom where spells are cast to win love or heal, where fairies get tipsy and stop whispering into the ears of Roger, where the thrill of spiritual bliss could be felt. When Regin plans to trick Aerwyna into the words of spell to win her love for a few hours, all he gets is the love of an old woman Mrs Hawkins, the most aged woman in the country while Aerwyna laughs at the spectacle! This book is a superb combination of stories and poetry, which has a mystical connection with spirits and myths.
