Oh this is such a wonderful find if you are a lover of folklore, myths and legends.I have been a fan of this author's work for a long time so was excited to recieve this in the post. The opening story involving the hedgehogs(my favorite animal) was fascinating as were the following stories throughout this unusual book. It's well worth a read and will keep you enthralled for hours.

HASH(0x98aa6750) out of 5 stars I loved all the stories 8 Sept. 2013
By Ruth R. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fan of all of Juliet Marillier's books and I really enjoyed reading the interesting variety of short stories in Prickle Moon. I especially loved the story from Seven Waters which gave wonderful details on some of the characters. I recommend this book to all fantasy book lovers.

HASH(0x98aa699c) out of 5 stars A top collection! 20 July 2014
By Satima Flavell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Juliet Marillier is that rara avis - a writer who can move from novels to short stories and back again with ease, producing reliable work on both fronts. Her work is never less than excellent, and Prickle Moon, a collection of short stories, is just another example of her thoroughgoing professionalism and craftmanship.

Some of the stories have been published before. One favourite in this category is 'Twixt Firelight and Water', which gives us an insight into the later years of a couple of characters in the early Sevenwaters books. In contrast, the title story. 'Prickle Moon', is a brand-new tale but an equally lovely one, about hedgehogs and passive resistance: you'll have to read it to find out how they fit together!

Another favourite, for me, was 'Angel of Death', also a newly-written tale, this one about a man and a dog. It would have been very easy for this story to be overly sentimental, but the character of Dan, the conflicted, war-torn protagonist, is so well-drawn that no hint of melodramatic mush could find its way into the story. It's one of those rare yarns I have added to my mental list of unforgettable short stories.

There are sixteen stories in the book, each one with something to offer. One of the beauties of the collection is that it gives the author a chance to show her versatility. Dare I say that there is more variety in this slim volume than in the rest of Marillier's oeuvre in its entirety? She is not constrained here by the almost obligatory trilogy format of the professional fantasy writer. She has let her imagination run free not only twixt firelight and water but through wind and rocks; through forest groves and city streets and suburban homes; through settings Celtic and modern and many times between. Some stories do not even contain a speculative element - but all are eminently readable.

I fully expect to see Prickle Moon shortlisted for awards, and to be a nice little earner for the clever folk at Ticonderoga Publications as well.

Disclosure: I had a small hand in editing some of the stories in this collection, pre-submission, and I am known to be a Marillier devotee. But if you are also a Marillier fan, or have been intending to check out her work, do take a look at Prickle Moon. I'll be very surprised if you don't agree with me that this is a top collection! If we were allowed to give half stars this one would have four and a half from me.

This book was amazing. I really enjoyed the short stories. At first I only wanted to read the 7 waters story. But I read the whole book and I am so glad I did. This is a book I would read again.

The best word to describe Juliet Marillier is "storyteller." Even her short stories are engaging and delightful. I'm gobbling up anything she's written that I can get my hands on now...
