I so enjoyed this collection! It was very much like a TV show and each part was a different episode. It was interesting reading the different stories, but all having similarities to bring them together with themes, setting and magic by being set in the Of Metal and Magic universe. 

I always have a hard time giving short stories collections 5 stars because there's multiple of authors and I am always left wanting more! Most of my notes after each part I said I wanted more- more backstory, more reas

*I received a free ARC of this compendium, with thanks to Richie Billing and Fiction Vortex. The decision to review and my opinions are my own.*

This compendium collates a mixture of short fiction, poetry, ‘historical documents’ and samples chapters from full-length novels soon to be released, all set in the shared epic fantasy world of Soria.

There is a little something for every classic fantasy fan here – unicorns, dragons, new beasts, high- and low-born adventurers, magic, swords and sorcery.

Of Metal and Magic is Fiction Vortex's latest short fiction and series pilot compendium - or - a fantasy lover's storyworld dreamscape.

Each story is similar to watching a play - one scene ends, the curtain drops, the setting changes,

An interesting concept with authors that have their own unique voice and writing style. Each episode left me asking for more.
I can’t wait to read the rest of some of these stories and indulge in the world of dragons and unicorns.
