Narrator James Patrick Cronin's bright-eyed performance is flexible enough to give the tales in this collection of high-fantasy stories their own unique stamp. Each story is told from the point of view of a female character who finds herself embroiled in extraordinary - and sometimes perilous - situations, and Cronin nimbly blends drama and tension with his personality-driven narration. Listeners will be enchanted by the tales of love, magic, and power in worlds where a book can foretell an entire life, a beheaded queen's head is kept alive, and a girl falls in love with a man made of moonlight.
A new full-length collection of high fantasy by Dave Smeds. A lover spun from moonlight. A wife banished for carrying the child of a demon. A queen, beheaded ten years ago, whose sage counsel may still save the realm. Here are tales of swords, of magic, of romance. And of the struggle to be splendid of heart whether the opponent be within or without.
