Some are much deeper and take more focus;
others are lighter and lean more towards fantasy delight.
The collection starts with BREATH, when Fauna, the Eternal Guardian of Souls, the only one in her family with a beating heart, who is responsible for comforting and guiding every creature everywhere. She has only raised one creature herself and now he has matured and is ready to find a mate. For the first time in her existance Fauna feels longing and lonliness. This story tells how her brothers and sisters try to aid her even when they can't truly understand the emotion.
In Phoenix, a musician meets his muse in the audience of his concert and falls under her spell. They marry soon after but she ides of a spider bite on their wedding day. Heis so distraught he considers suicide to be with her. Instead he visits a witchy woman and goes on a mystical journey.
The Year With No Foals seems to be the most popular story in this collection. Even with topics of child endangerment and poverty, this is one of the lighter fantasy reads. A colt born with six legs struggles to adapt and takes a young girl to magical heights.
Other stories in the collection feature goblins and deceit, a Sqid Panther and bioweapons, music, dispair and missing persons, Daimons, and ultimate challenges. A wide assortment of topics and styles.
As author T.C.Phillips su succinctly writes "strange is better than dead."
I did receive this collection as part of a blog tour. This review is my own
Multi Author Anthology
This is a collection of many sub genres. It was a wonderful way to get a look into several different stories without the wait through hundreds of pages. You will get a look into fairy tale, fantasy, mythology and even a little steampunk.
Each one individual in that you might have a light easy read, or you be taken to another level of deep intrigue.
“Breath” by Jodi Milner
Fauna,is the main character in this wonderful story of fantasy. We get to delve into her world of confusion, love, and nurturing. You get a glimpse of her siblings struggle with supporting her without the understanding of the feelings that she deals with day to day.
“Phoenix” by Elise Stephens
This story is an emotional ride. The heartache of finding THE ONE, only to have her ripped away on their wedding day. Deciding against a suicide he finds another option. But what will the price of that decision be? Dark magic always has a price. Will he ever see her again?
“Life Under Research” by Thaxson Patterson II
“Can a bioweapon possess a soul and make choices to save humanity?” That is the question I read as looking at the Author blurb. And this story will have you asking the same thing. Is it possible to feel empathy towards a “monster”? I say yes. After reading this story I have to say the lines between good and not are a little thinner.
Scott Tarbet's "The Year of No Foals." Is well written and wonderfully engaging. Mr Tarbet is able to in my opinion write successfully from a female (young female at that) perspective. Rarely have I read one be as easily to follow as this. The story line is also well written and easy to follow and enjoy.
I am currently still reading this and re-reading some of the ones Ive already mentioned. I am not sure I was able to enjoy them to their fullest as I read. The other stories include Goblins, emotion, magical worlds and so much more. I cannot wait to finish this Anthology.
NOTE: The only reason I am giving this book a four out of five star rating is that I am still in the process of reading the book.
