A big thank you to the ARO program for the opportunity to read this book.

Nice collection of stories featuring different aspects of magic. Loved Hex Woods and The Fish, The Wish and Vinny. Enjoyed all 9 stories but those 2 were my favorites.

Short stories about spells and witches? Yes please! These nine tales are brilliant, starting with a hexed wood and that creepy little song about going down to the woods today. My favourite was 'Waiting' about a hospital waiting room, the author of this one captured obsessive-compulsive anxiety beautifully with what I thought was actually an uplifting meaning. The Wish I also really enjoyed, Guinevere is as alive as her husband's legend. I thought Crow Song was awesome - the crow knew a spell abo ...more

A wide variety of different tropes and writing styles in this book. The last three stories are my favorites! They have some really spooky set-ups, and strong protagonists. And the last story features a badass m/m pairing!

The author gifted me a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review.

As others have stated, this is a collection of nine short stories. Very entertaining, adventurous, magical, a little scary but nicely done. It was different and unique. The characters were refreshing and not what I expected. Each story was very worthy to be read and I recommend not just reading the book but actually purchasing it. Each story is just long enough that I had time to enjoy it during my commute. There is a wit

This is a collection of short stories involving magic. The authors are from around the world thus some of the storylines correspond to myths in their countries. There are 9 stories that are all very entertaining. Just on their own merits, each would receive a 5- star rating from me. I will just highlight a couple in this review.

Hex Woods by Sara Coates was good because of the creepy woods that no one ever entered. The ending was rather odd and different from what I was expecting.

An eclectic collection of magical short stories. Each one a perfect length to read on the train during commuting or during lunch hour. Stories that are very thought provoking, leaving you to wonder what happens next. Each one with its own form of paranormal magic to explore. A great introduction to various authors. Several of whom I will now look for when selecting new reads.

This collection of nine tales of magic was a very entertaining read. While the stories all had an urban fantasy feel, the magic in each story was quite unique. The stories ranged from thoughtful to just a bit creepy. I enjoyed reading all of them and would definitely be interested in reading more stories like these from these authors.

I had recieved this book for free for a honest review.
So this is my very first time reading an anthology so I wasn't sure what to expect. There is 9 short stories of different magic events by different authors . the first story took me in and wanting more so I knew I wanted to read the rest to see if I got the same effect. Again I was not disappointed they were all well written and drew you in. I do reccomend this to someone who enjoys magic and world of mysteries .
