this is a collection of short chilling, thrilling and very strange stories that should somehow make there way to TV..... TALES FROM JOURNEYS.
I envision a new concept for cinema; one movie with ten stories that last 10-15 min.. These authors were great and their stories were super eerie.
This book is a must for someone that want to read a short story which has tons of impact.and mystery. Read it and you won't feel at ease.
Here are my thoughts on each story. I tried to keep spoilers out, but didn’t always succeed, so SPOILER ALERT!
The Troll Hunt (Julia Knight) - A thought-provoking and entertaining tale with Norse roots, this story is one that challenges how we perceive a tale.
The Road to Hadrumal (Juliet E McKenna) - A clever origin story for the start of a wizard haven! It reminds me a bit of Xavier’s School for the Gifted and Talented. I would enjoy reading more about the haven and how it comes to be.
The Witness (Steven Poore) - This story fits with many tales where a stranger comes and helps a downtrodden town, yet it stands apart in some way that I can’t put my finger on. I would like to read more of those from the town, but I like the idea of never hearing more of the stranger.
The World Wound (Adrian Tchaikovsky) - An interesting concept, reminds me of some of the more shocking sci-fi short stories.
Fool's Quest (Juliana Spink Mills) - This sounds like a story world that has more to tell. Wonderful plot twists!
Tomas and the Virgin (Anna Dickinson) - I like what the author is hinting at, but I would’ve liked bit more certainty in the ending. Was Tom betrayed by her? Will he be betrayed? Who is she really?
The Broken City (Davis Ashura) - Another fantastical world that I expect to hear more from!
A Warm Heart (Dan Jones) - Greatly enjoyed this one. I picked up on the one twist, but there were three more that I didn’t, because I’m too idealistic and optimistic.
Black Sails (Thaddeus White) - Amazing! An epic adventure told in a short story! Nice, fast paced tale!
The Last Mile (Gail Z Martin) - Wow. Endurance is the key to this tale. What would you trade for the life of your king?
The Black-Handed Mage (Charlie Pulsipher) - Lovely! Such a marvelous, unique tale! Excellent blend of sci-fi and fantasy, of truth and myth.
Quests and Answers (Samanda R Primeau) - I would love to read more about the new way. These spirit animals seem more interesting than most.
The Vanishing (Jacob Cooper) - Quite an action packed short story. What happened to the people who didn’t go on the adventure? Is the Light removing them from where the Dark can reach?
The Sundering (John Gwynne) - That necklace reminds me of a well known Dark Lord’s horcrux... and she kept it?! Sorry, I enjoyed this short story, but I don’t particularly want to read more about this world, since there is nothing to balance the evil. Yes, I know, half of such a tale is the hopeless situation and if you put the book in my hands, I would be sucked into it and not put it down until I finished it. I know my own weaknesses, so I will attempt to avoid this world as if it was a starstone.
There are trolls, giants, goblins, virgins and vicious unicorns. We've even got necromancy gone awry, given life of its own. Some stories are aimed at the young adult readership, some for the very strong of stomach. Overall it's a very well written and, just as importantly, a very well balanced anthology that I would highly recommend to any reader of the fantastic.
