Here be dragons … and selkies and griffins and maybe even a mermaid or two.

Twenty fantasy authors band together to bring you a collection of thrilling tales and magical monsters. Do you like to slay dragons? Or befriend them? Do you prefer to meet cephalopods as gigantic kraken or adorable tree octopuses?

Each story focuses around a fantastic creature from folklore or mythology, and they range from light and playful tales for the whole family to darker stories that may make you wish to leave the lights on. These stories carry the Fellowship of Fantasy seal of approval. While our monsters may be horrifying, you won’t stumble into graphic sex and constant swearing.

Perfect for the fantasy lover who can’t get enough of mythical beasts.

Simply fantastic

I heard about this anthology from an author I follow and I really loved the whole idea of a collection of stories about mythical creatures and monsters. I mean, that’s a pretty awesome theme for a short story compilation, right?

Fantastic Creatures is simply a good read for anyone who loves fantasy and interesting stories. The stories are quite diverse and enjoyable. I thought Three Steaks and a Box of Chocolates by A.R. Silverberry was sweet and amusing. I loved the aura of mystery in Seekers by Intisar Khanani. Snapdragon by Lea Doué had the nice familiar feel of a fairytale. And these are just a few of the stories in this collection. I believe there’s a story here for everyone.

If you’re a fan of fantasy, especially stories of creatures, beasts and monsters, you’ll probably enjoy this one. Go grab a copy now while it’s free on most retail sites!

Note: I received a review copy of this book as part of my participation in the release day blitz. All opinions and views expressed here are my own.
