Publisher's Summary

Arisa: a world of loss and hardship; of legend and wonder; the world of A Warrior's Path. Return there now with Stories from Arisa, a short story collection featuring four wonderful new fables from that mythic place; each one a polished gem; together, an assemblage spanning the realms of hope, humor, tragedy, loss, and love.

"Received Wisdom"

The Baels of the Eastern Plague have fallen away from Hume's teachings. It is Li-Dirge who finds leadership thrust upon him. He must challenge the SarpanKum and return his brothers to the path of fraternity.

"The Prank"

The House of Fire and Mirrors. The Fort and the Sword. Both are Kumma military academies and fierce rivals in the city of Ashoka. The Wrath is the annual competition between the two schools, deciding bragging rights for the next year, but it is the Prank that dictates who laughs last and longest. This year, it is especially important for Rukh, Keemo, Farn, and Jaresh.

"A Lesson Learned"

Drin Port only wanted a long, tall drink. Many long, tall drinks. When chance brings him the opportunity of a lifetime, will he have the wisdom to take advantage of it?

"The Missing Diamond"

Rector Bryce is called upon to investigate a missing diamond. The thief is not at all who he would have expected.

    "This was a must have for me..."

    As a fantasy author, I can truthfully say that Davis Ashura is one of my favorite fantasy authors. I'm so glad I discovered this series. SFA is a collection of short stories that give greater insight and depth into the world of Arisa and many characters you might not get as much face time as you would like in the full length novels. Each of the 4 stories delivers comedy, intrigue, action, or just plain good thought-provoking prose. I both listened to and read these collection. Nick Pohdel continues to be a perfect match as a voice for this content. If you're a fan of the Castes and the OutCastes, Stories From Arisa is a must have! You'll find yourself wanting to go back and re-read the series to see where all these stories fit in to the overarching plot.

    "Too Short"

    Generally I don't like reviews of short stories that say they are too short. Seriously, what do you expect? But I have to make an exception here because these stories are too short, even by short story standards.

    Most of them are so short that they lack depth, particularly the one featuring Rector Bryce. I wish Ashura had fleshed out one or two stories even a little, rather than including 4 tiny ones. They had promise, and I like the idea of learning a little more about Arisa. My favorite of the 4 was the one about the baels, which did show some depth despite its length.
