Being different can be dangerous.
Falada is a kelpie, hated and feared because she can change shape.
Only Jentelle has looked past Falada’s outward appearance to see the person within. And now Jentelle must marry the prince of the neighboring kingdom to forge an alliance against invasion from the south.
But no one in their new home can find out that Jentelle is part siren. In horse shape, Falada accompanies her friend because if anyone discovers the truth about either of them, they could lose more than an alliance.
Many humans kill what they don’t understand.

Discover twelve tales of Faerie…and experience its paradox–both close and inaccessible–peopled with heroes, rogues, and ciphers.
A modern dragon who desires more than mere gold,
A troll who longs for the kiss of sunlight on his skin,
Pixies who won’t let breaking-and-entering deter them from their just revenge,
A gargoyle who yearns to safeguard not only a church but a young girl as well,
And a woman who bargains for Faerie help—only to be confronted with a cost that is more than she can bear to pay.
Come join them.
Christmas isn’t always “Jingle Bells” and “Ho, ho, ho.” In these Twelve Tales of Christmas, even Santa has to deal with unexpected German Shepherds and reindeer who suddenly want to learn the tango. A dryad works feverishly with a teenage boy to save her tree, now in a stand in his living room, and everyone begs Death to hold off for just one more day.
And nobody knows what to do with the fire-breathing dragon. He’s not going on the Christmas card list anytime soon.
Come enter worlds of beauty and dread. Join a house hob as he raises his cup of eggnog high, and enjoy yuletide yarns delicious enough to tempt even St. Nick.
