Nine stories come to life in this fantasy anthology imbued with magic and mayhem.
Magic often comes at a heavy price: a ribbon dancer seeks a phoenix for the magic to right a terrible wrong; a young witch is punished after using dark magic she has no memory of performing; and a grumpy witch is forced to face her past when she inherits a baby in exchange for a spell.
But with magic, the impossible comes to life: children create magical worlds only to lose their powers as they grow older; a student helps her grandfather battle a squirrel army of his own creation; and a newly orphaned girl seeks a witch to resurrect her parents only to find another future in store for her.
And, as all tales go, actions have consequences: instead of studying for his exams, a teenager modifies his magical device and unleashes hidden dangers upon his classmates; after losing her temper, an orphan must learn to control her wild magic before the entire realm is doomed; and a past decision haunts an apprentice mage as a dark-eyed daemon preys on his fear.
Visit faraway lands and local neighborhoods in this collection of fantastic tales. Magic can be found everywhere, if you only know where to look.
