I got a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. For the most part I enjoyed the book. It is a solid collection of stories with a good mix between classic fantasy and urban fantasy.

My favorites of this bunch were Boomerang by Matthew Schocke (a story about a mage that takes on an evil lab) this story had wonderful action scenes and a great array of characters. I also really enjoyed Fate's Apprentice by Brian James, a story about some apprentice mages competing. The Wil

This book was such a drag to read. I kept putting it off and off and that's not supposed to happen! Barely half the stories presented here are worth reading.

"Pest Control" was a good start.
"Maiden Quest" was meh.
"Forever Young" had an interesting narration, but was unsurprising.
"Boomerang" was enjoyable for me, but I guess this is a biased opinion because of Shadowrun.

The next 3 titles really, really made me mad: "Fate's Apprentice", "The Quantum Garage Mechanic" and "Upon Chrystal Shores".

In the interests of full disclosure: I bought this book primarily for one story, that being 'The Wild Fields' by Susan Nance Carhart, who I know slightly through a shared hobby.

So far I have only read that one story, which is a wonderfully rich, evocative tale based around the myths and legends of Kievan Russian. It is well written, and pleasantly reminiscent of fairy tales I read as a child. Highly recommended.

A collection of original and engaging short stories, the stories are well written and I would love to see some of the concepts explored as full length novels. Thoroughly enjoyable, would read again.

A collection of short stories by mostly new authors, this book manages to provide an interesting mix of several types of fantasy and horror and while I didn't like all the individual stories, overall I think it was a nice read.
