For seventeen years, Bevel Dom has been the author of his own story. Or, rather, he's been the author of The Tales of Kintyre Turn, the illustrated scrolls chronicling his adventures as first the squire, then the colleague, and then finally the friend of legendary hero Kintyre Turn. But there are some stories that Bevel doesn't write down, doesn't tell to eager audiences o ...more

There has been a lot of bookish raving from my side about "The Untold Tale", the high fantasy meta-fiction novel by J. M. Frey. This is a book I would love to see very much turned into a TV series, just like "Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas.
I have used it in the Feature & Follow Friday and sometimes I am having an Internet/Tumblr/Pinterest expedition just to find pieces of fanart.

"Ghosts" is the prequel novella which follows the duo of Kintyre Turn a

I do not like to read short stories unless they are part of a series and if I have read the books in the series. Thankfully, I have read the first two books of The Accidental Turn series. So I had no issues following Ghosts storyline.

Ghosts are set in the kingdom of Hain which in turn is set in the book “The Tales of Kintyre Turn“. Told from Bevel’s first-person perspective, I learned that Bevel was in love with Kintyre. Kintyre only acknowledged his feelings for Bevel during the many threesomes

I am a big fan of The Accidental Turn series. If you haven’t read it but would like to know more, check out my review of the first two books here. When I finished reading The Forgotten Tale I wanted to know more of Kintyre and Bevel’s story so you can imagine my delight when I learned about these novellas.

Just as with The Untold Tale and The Forgotten Tale, Frey continues the story in the gorgeous world she has built. This is the stuff of epic fantasies but writt

First, let me just say that I adore Frey’s work. Not only is it intelligent, inclusive, and well-written, it’s also a refreshingly solid addition to the fantasy genre and a heck of a lot of fun. It’s the perfect example of fantasy written for modern times, with all the charm and appeal of its predecessors, and none of the staleness. And as a long-time fan of the fantasy genre, that trait alone is highly appealing.

But I think the thing that truly sets Frey’s work apart is the depth of emotional r

It is fitting, I suppose, to have saved this tale for reading last; to have picked it up immediately upon finishing the third book in The Accidental Turn Trilogy. I would highly recommend that others do as I have and save this tale of Kintyre Turn for last. Although the events occur before the first book, THE UNTOLD TALE, to read it in its chronology would truly spoil appreciation of a most unique book.

After reading the last book, THE SILENCED TALE, I had but one wish, well two actually. One of

Have you ever liked someone who doesn’t like you back? Everyone has and it’s the worst. Especially if they’re the same gender as you.

Ghosts is a prequel novella to J. M. Frey’s The Untold Tale and delves into the secret feelings one of the book’s characters and I loved it. It was great giving him a voice and getting to know one of the books relationships from the inside on a deeper level. And the story weaves in some action to keep the fantasy world from the main book alive.

I’m purposely not say

Heart-wrenching prequel novella to The Untold Tale, our fictional world inside a book. Short, middle-aged Bev is our poetic narrator, pining desperately for the hero he's been following for 17 years. Good story that really captures hopelessness. Much better read if after The Untold Tale, not before. ...more

See my full review at!

J.M. sent me an ebook ARC of her upcoming novel, The Forgotten Tale, and I bought Ghosts to fill in the blanks between the first and second books in the series. It takes place during The Untold Tale, right before Kintyre and Bevel go to Turn Hall and meet Lucy Piper and Forsythe Turn, and it also connects with events that take place in The Forgotten Tale.

This time when I was talking to J.M. I told her that Ghosts made me sympathize with the

I feel like I'm shortchanging this story by giving it only 3-stars. Yet at the same time, I wasn't terribly excited about it as I read it.

This is mostly because I read it out of sequence. It probably shouldn't matter since this prequel novella (stated as #0.5) was obviously only releasedafter #1 The Untold Tale (duh) and #2 The Forgotten Tale. BUTTTT I read it after reading #2.5 Arrivals which really was the culmination of everything that happens in Ghosts.

At any rate, it feels a little waffly
