Let’s take a walk in the woods. When you come back out, you won’t be the same person you were when you went in.

This book contains eight short stories about the wild side, a world full of magical and mythical beings, and the odd creatures that live in the dark shady places. All the stories are interesting and fun to read. This author gives his stories depth and gave this reader the feeling I was actually in that time and place. I had t

This is one crafty, creative lady. Her command of the English language, her knowledge of mythology and folklore and story telling abilities are almost intimidating. I enjoyed reading one of these before bed every night. I found them comforting. I've got to point out that she is a complete artist and her blog is worth a visit ftmckinstry.com.

Won this book through a goodreads giveaway.

I'm going to start off by saying this wasn't really my type of book. That being said, the series of short stories that make up this book are filled with poetic imaging and storytelling that breathes more than just life into the stories that elevated the telling into the fantasy realm even without subject matter that also took place there. Normally I stick to more action based books, but even without a whole lot of action taking place in these pages, the

This book is somewhat different than I am used to reading but I thoroughly enjoyed it, none the less. a collection of eight short stories that run the gamut from humour, fantasy all the way to science fiction. I found it a very easy read and would highly recommend it!!
