Dragon Time and other stories is a great read. It is four short stories, all with women as the main characters.
Dragon Time was really enjoyable. Katja is a woman in a mans world who is called upon to fix time when the Dragon King, in a fit or rage over the death of his Queen, breaks the clock that controls time. The King's son, the Prince enlists Katja to fix time even though it is forbidden for a woman to do so. You will have to read the book to find out more.
Wooing Ai Kyarem is a story about a woman who is the leader of a tribe, and is also an undefeated warrior who will not have any man who can not best her in wrestling. She is summoned by her lord Kubai Kuyuk, and goes to Pakum because he wants her to marry into his clan so he can acquire her tribe's horses. The story does not go his way, and the rest will require you to read the book to know what happens.
To Act the Witch is a story about a performer, Brilliana Crowley who is also the descendant of a Witch, and finds out that she is a witch in a land that is trying to put an end to the age of magic. Brilliana undertakes a challenge to remove a spell placed on the husband of the Queen's Alchemist. Secrets will be uncovered and again, you will have to read the book to find out more.
Princes and Priscilla is about a spoiled princess, her father, her fairy godmother, Fanny, a slew of princes and an attempt to wed Priscilla so that the King's cousin Denny will not be the next King to sit upon the throne. Read along and find out how Fanny and the King attempt to wed Priscilla, and how she resists their every attempt. This story will amaze you, and the ending is supurb.
Ruth Nestvold has put together these four short stories with a flair that will entice you to read the entire book at one sitting, it is supurb. The characters are all very well defined, the stories are believeable, and you can relate to them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who absolutely loves fantasy. I look forward to more from this author and encourage you to get this book, read it, and like it.
