'The Stranger' and 'The Harrowing of the Dragon of Hoarsbreath' are stunning. I won't soon forget either. The other stories are also enchanting - some more humorous in tone, and some more epic. Read full review

Review: Harrowing the Dragon

User Review  - Merinde - Goodreads

The first few stories were...I just couldn't get into it. Then there were a few very absorbing ones, but as a collection, overall, it just wasn't that great. A Troll and Two Roses, however, was absolutely lovely. Very imaginative. Stranger was quite captivating as well. Read full review
