Product Description

Product Description

Ten short story of fantasy, edited by Rayne Hall.

The authors of these ten tales have spun yarns based on the premise that magic is real, but it requires skill to harness its force, and abuse brings danger. Suspend your disbelief, and find out what happens when people use magic to gain power, healing, wisdom or love.

Some stories take place in fantasy lands, others in the world you know. Some are short, others long; some are funny, others poignant; some aim to entertain, others to make you think. Each author has a different vision of magic, a different way of telling a story, and a different writing style. See which of them resonate with you.

Read about wizardry, witchcraft and sorcery. Let the stories guide you into worlds where magic is real, and enjoy the enchantment.

Will Ambrose betray his magic system just to save an idiot prince?

2. OBSESSION by Pamela Turner
Some questions are best left unasked.

3. LADY BARD by Cherie Reich
A love song may be the only cure for a cursed prince.

5. ST JAKE OF THE FUNHOUSE by Douglas Kolacki
For Edward, the 'saint' part was the scariest.

6. BARNABAS by Jeff Hargett

7. BY YOUR OWN FREE WILL by Rayne Hall
What price would you pay to get your heart's desire?

8. A MAGICAL MELODY by Ciara Ballintyne
In a world where magic is in the music, Avram must settle the score before it's too late.

9. BRAINS, SEX OR MONEY? by Tara Maya
What would you choose?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten entertaining fantasy stories 29 July 2013
By LunarmommyK - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A collection of ten tales of magic, ranging from traditional fantasy to modern fairy tales.

I enjoyed every single story in this collection (and coming from me, not a big short story reader, that's pretty amazing). In particular, my favorites were "System, Magic, Spirit" by T.D. Edge, a tale of sorcery and of finding inner strength; "The Final Spark" by CJ Burright, a gripping story of a woman fighting an evil sorceress to free her beloved; and "A Magical Melody" by Ciara Ballintyne, set in a world where magic spells are woven of music. But they were all good.

A fun collection to have on hand when you have a few moments and want to dip into a new and fascinating fantasy world

4.0 out of 5 stars Ten Magical Tales 25 Nov 2012
By Debbie Christiana- New Milford, CT - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a fan of magic as well as the Ten Tales Anthologies by Rayne Hall and this latest one doesn't disappoint.

Barnabas, a down to earth tale set in a magic store in the 1960's was my favorite. It wasn't flashy and told an unpretentious story with a clear-cut message. I could feel the desperation of the main characters in both Obsession and By Your Own Free Will. The climax in Obsession happens on October 13, a date I hold dear, which was a fun surprise.

While the aforementioned may have stood out a bit for me, all the stories were well written and took me from times long ago to a modern era carnival. The stories aren't gory or terrifying. A couple are a little creepy, some have a nice twist at the end (which I love), and I enjoyed them all.
5.0 out of 5 stars Full of Magic 25 Oct 2013
By Megan Strong - Published on

Spells: Ten Tales of Magic includes assorted tales of magic. From sorcery and obvious in your face magic, to subtle magic you may not even realize is there. Each story uses magic in a different way, all with very different outcomes.

One of my favorites was Obsession. This is a dark story of obsession and desperation, and what can happen when you mess with forces unknown to you. Corinne has recently last her boyfriend Mark in a car accident. Her jealousy is ignited when she meets his ex-girlfriend from high school at his funeral. Now she must know who he loves more. Corinne is about to find out that 'Some questions are best left unasked'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining! 23 Oct 2013
By Heather with Griffin's Honey - Published on

In normal circumstances I am not a fan of short stories because I don’t feel like most allow the reader the opportunity to get involved with or attached to the storyline. That has not been the case with the Ten Tales Anthologies edited by Rayne Hall. I’ve fallen in love with these books and Spells: Ten Tales of Magic was not an exception.

Barnabas by Jeff Hargett is a well-written, down to earth tale about a man that has been making his way through life in constant search of his magic. Hargett tells a great story with a clear-cut message. Obsession by Pamela Turner and By Your Own Free Will by Rayne Hall were my two absolute favorite stories. I could easily empathize with and feel the desperation of the two main characters. I can understand their actions and motives which kind of scares me but overall… I get it! Brains, Sex or Money? By Tara Maya was super short but totally made me giggle!

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining stories with interesting characters 10 Nov 2012
By A. M. Diaz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I fully recommend this book. There's variety for different tastes. Stories like System, Magic and Spirit; Obsession, By Your Free Will and Barnabas will leave you thinking hard. They were my favorite because the character stuck with me for hours after putting the book aside. By Your Free Will is, to my personal opinion, a master piece in execution, in the way it draws you into the story and the fantastic message it delivers. I loved it. Obsession is delightfully creepy and Barnabas has an ending worth of the Twilight Zone. Brain, Sex or Money is short but very funny. The White Raven's Feather is extremely compelling. The Lady Bard is sweet as the stories from childhood. I found the starts of a Magical Melody and the Last Spark a little slow but they certainly got me when action came. The only one that wasn't my cup of tea was St Jake of the Fun House but still I consider nine out of ten is an excellent bargain. And I was very pleased with the bonus reading as well.
