F is for Fairy Edited by Rhonda Parrish

This is the 6th book in the alphabet anthology series, edited by Rhonda Parrish. As the title says, this time around contains 26 stories that explore everything fairy – every form of fairy imaginable is contained within this volume, from fairy tale reimaginings to urban fantasy to Norse elfs to some that were totally unexpected.

I found all the stories to be of very high caliber, but like any anthology, some I liked better than others. Particular standouts for me were D by Jeanne Kramer-Smyth. I would say more, but I don’t want to spoil the story. E by Pete Aldin, which had a lovely blend of new and old worlds with fairies in Australia. G by Stephanie A. Cain, which is a lovely urban fantasy with werewolves and fairy Gentry, but still manages to stay fresh. I by Joseph Halden, which is very humorous and has a fairy dogmother (although she’s not quite what she sounds). Z by Beth Cato, which is a lovely snippet of what goes on in the fae realm.

I thoroughly enjoyed this collection and recommend any fantasy lover to give it a try. I’m going to try out the previous anthologies. D is for dinosaur is calling to me.

I received a free copy of this book via Book sprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

F is for Fairy is now widely available wherever books are sold.

I give this anthology…
