 *A Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book. This is my honest and unbiased review*

Hello Fellow Readers,

I love to read anthology books, it's easy for me to read a short story and put the book down to process before starting the next story which I love. Typically really good fantasy anthologies are hard to come by but I was amazed at some of the stories in this one. In only a couple of pages these authors managed to craft, amazing worlds with unique magic systems and characters that catch your eye. 

Like most anthologies some stories you do invest a bit more into stories than others, a few times I found myself saying "I wish they would keep going" or "Aw why did they have to stop it there!". This could be a good or bad thing depending on how you think. 

Overall A Delightful anthology.
