The Sky-Child and Other Stories is the latest offering from Danielle Shipley, and serves as an entry into the world of the Wilderhark Tales.

If you're already a fan of the series, you'll absolutely adore this! To new readers, this will make you want to read every story as soon as yo

I love a good behind-the-scenes story. <3 These are sweet and funny and clever and, sometimes, sad, filling in a few gaps to make the whole series that much richer. I don't want it to end, but it's that time -- on to the final book...

I received a copy of this book for free through Goodreads First Reads

I'm not really sure what I think of this book. It is completely out of my comfort zone. It was beautifully written but really just wasn't my cup of tea. I'm sure that fantasy and fairy tale fans will love it though.
