•A modern dragon who desires more than mere gold,
•A troll who longs for the kiss of sunlight on his skin,
•Pixies who won’t let breaking-and-entering deter them from their just revenge,
•A gargoyle who yearns to safeguard not only a church but a young girl as well,
•And a woman who bargains for Faerie help—only to be confronted with a cost that is more than she can bear to pay.
Come join them.

This book contains several short stories, it's about 70ish pgs, all the stories were great except for 2 that were ok, overall 4.5!! Also nice that the writer offers for free to inspire others !!
"Dragons, Glimmering Gold, And Castles of Far with Twisted Fairies OH MY! You will find all of this and much more in this "delightful" 12-story unique compilation! Author, Cathleen Townsend produced an exceptionally well-written book that takes you to far away lands of fantasy like no other I have read. As a former banker, I got a hoot of the ending of "Dragon Hoard!" I am normally not a reader of "Tales of OLE" or fantasy, but the fun turns and adding of "something new in some tales old" was a genius idea. Cathleen has a wild and amazing imagination that brings her written characters to life and will tickle the "funny bones" of all readers alike. So if you'd like to explore other worlds of different tales, comical at times characters and whimsical fun lands? Grab a copy of this book. It WILL take you there. Such fun and highly suggested read!
