From tales of bloody-handed hypocrites to space pirates, you'll find some truly fascinating works within.

Blackest Knights by C.T. Phipps (Editor) is a book I requested and the review is voluntary. It is an anthology of stories all featuring a dark knight of some sort. In this book you will encounter elves, half-elves, witches, dragons, weredeer, magic, powerful swords, evil, and so much more! I enjoyed each story! Only 2 stories I thought were 4 stars and the rest were all 5 stars easily!!! Fantastic read!

A boy discovers a previously unknown power when his village is attacked. An elvish knight has sworn to uphold an ancient law by any and all means. A trio of friends travels a dark land on a mission to rescue their loved ones. A newly made lord of hell finds keeping a promise is harder than it seems. These are just some of the stories I enjoyed in this book. One of the great benefits of an anthology is that you can sample works by multiple authors in small portions. In this aspect, Blackest Knights succeeded admirably. With 19 stories from 16 authors, there an embarrassment of riches to enjoy in this book. And, since some take place in the worlds already established by their respective authors, it acts as an introduction to them as well. Even though some do tie into larger works, every story in this book stands on its own, their characters and plots independent enough that no prior knowledge is necessary to understand and enjoy. Granted not every story will please everyone, but grimdark fans are certainly find something of interest.

...Because sometimes you just need to walk on the dark side! For every hero, there is a villain, often misunderstood, sometimes just pure evil, but always, always remember, without the dark side, there can be no light! Even good guys have their limits and they can plummet into their personal abyss of evil. Meet some vampires who have no sparkle at all and think about them the next time you are swimming in strange, deep waters, or maybe a cave! How about a broken love? You know what they say about a woman scorned…they can become a real monster, especially when they are tricked by a witch… many stories are written in fantasy lands, filled with swords and battles filled with gore and choices that must be made. You may even find a character whose past is explained, like getting to know the rest of the story! On the contemporary fantasy side, many people may not know that Michigan is a hotbed for the “politically correct” paranormal. Every single story is a solid tale, each complete with atmosphere, action and darkness. A fabulously talented group of authors have come together to bring dark fantasy to life! Unique styles, unique settings and unique storylines bring world after world to life, all under one cover. Read them a story at a time, or feed your need to read and devour them all at once! Whatever your preferences in dark fantasy, BLACKEST KNIGHTS has a tale for you! I received a complimentary copy from Jesse Teller!
