Nice fantasy collection *Book source ~ Purchased on Amazon There are six fantasy shorts in this anthology and as with most anthologies, I have my favorites and those that are not so much. All of these stories are well-written and have great characters, so I won’t repeat myself about these points in my short summaries about each. Keeping the Peace ~ I will vote this one as my favorite story and would love to read more about this world with its magic, trolls and other interesting things. The Harper at Sea ~ I admit I love Jere the Harper. And as a traveler I’m sure there are many more of his stories left to be told. Waking the Master ~ Ok, I admit this one confused me. Creatively told from the House’s POV, I didn’t quite get the magical anchoring and valley stuff. I pretty much figured out what happened to the Master though. I think. The Truth About Arphon and the Apple Farmer’s Daughter ~ Also about Jere and how some bawdy songs saved his hide one night. I chuckled even though I worried he might meet his demise in this one. One Such Shore ~ This one seemed all about decision-making. I will count this one as my least favorite. Tinker Bell, Cannon Dale and the All Wheeling Nick of Time ~ Now, this is an interesting concept about the Fae, the world beyond the Veil and how the two worlds interact told through a simple-living yet genius bicycle maker.
