I am delighted to review the lovely book by Colleen M. Chesebro, Fairies, Myths & Magic: A Summer Celebration.
About the collection.
Step into a world where fairies, dragons, and other magical beings converge in a collection of poetry and short stories inspired by the celebration of Litha, the Summer Solstice.
Meet Drac, a dragon cursed by his own poisonous deeds, and two pixies who help an old man remember a lost love. You’ll meet a pair of fairies with a sense of humor, and a young girl who fulfills her destiny after being struck by lightning. Learn what happens when a modern witch’s spell goes terribly wrong. Meet the Sisters of the Fey, a group of Slavic Witches who sign a pact with the Rusalki Fey to preserve their magic for the good of all.
Atmospheric and haunting, the prose and poetry, will rewrite the mythologies of the past bringing them into the future.
My review for the book – Five Stars
I don’t really do wet and grey winters so I was badly in need of a tonic. This was very effectively supplied by the delightful collection of poetry and short stories by Colleen Chesebro.
Fairies have fascinated me since childhood, but my knowledge of the elves, pixies and other magical creatures, pales in comparison to that of the author. Clearly an observer of nature and the hidden worlds that only a chosen few have seen, she brings her cast of players to life delightfully. You will discover the different forms of fairy you might meet if you are lucky during a walk in a garden or lane, and you will find out about a chance encounter that was life changing.
You will also be introduced to some humans such as Roger who find themselves living in close proximity to these ethereal creatures. And there is definitely mischief afoot when two pixies get their hand on a potent spell… One of my favourite poems was The Fairy Spider’s Lair, but to be honest, I was spoiled for choice.
There is so much to enjoy in this book that celebrates the magic world and summer, that I am sure that you too will lose yourself in its pages. Great for all ages and children will love it too.
