I'm of two minds about this short story. First, there is a certain eye rolling aspect to this. All the names of the characters have a feel of "chosen because I couldn't think of anything else and it sounds pretty". Second, that is doubly true of the kingdom - Foresta. At times the story feels a bit rough around the edges.


Yet there is something there. Geneva's name and problem might be eye rolling but she does live as a character. She's likable. There is a wonderful sense of humor, and the pl
Prequel to A Spell for Susannah, this short story presents s glimpse into the early life of King Reginald and Queen Geneva, and introduces the dubious fairy christening gifts that ultimately lead to Susannah's story. Well written, amusing, and engaging, like all of Jody's stories.

Boy, how I adored this royal couple! The feisty queen thought her husband was cheating on her because he had been weird and fishy for some time, and the prophecy about the king falling in love with 13 women during his life totally pissed her up. So the queen followed the king around, and she tried to kill him several times even though she was in labor.

A pleasantly longer short-story, this tale is a whimsical light fantasy laced with Fae-centric elements. Told from the perspective of a somewhat irate Queen Geneva, it involves a bit of questionably "helpful" fairy mischief in an obscure little kingdom that happens to hold a unsuspectingly great destiny.

Wallaces's style is clean, smoothly composed, well characterized, and seasoned with snark. As a prequel to a full length novel, I can see this being a fine setup for whatever is to come.

I wrote this so I'm not putting any stars on it. I just like to list all my books in my library.

3 stars Amazon; 2.5 stars Goodreads: just a prologue

This short story doesn't really give the full, satisfying sensation of a story that can can stand alone, though it's not bad.
A humorous short story that seems to be a prequel to a book/series. I liked the plot and the characters. There isn't much to be said about this story, but it did interest me to read the next book.
