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…
