This book contains a short story by Austin Colton titled Overlord of the Wild, the first adventure in a new series titled The Epic of Khaeth. This sword and sorcery adventure is one of many amazing stories contained in this new anthology.
Rising Wonder: Creatures of Myth & Legend brings together over a dozen marvelous tales from independently published authors who range from veteran USA Today Bestsellers to debut storytellers.
Within these pages you will find unique stories told in a range of styles: from a dieing Elderbeast carrying out the will of a goddess, to the struggles of a unicorn fallen from grace, and a shadow hound of hell charged with an insurmountable task.
An unlikely duo of a human warrior and ancient troll face the threats of the wilds while a Solacer follows threads of magic to save the last of dragonkind.
Other tales include a group of fae intent of freeing a cabyll ushtey, dragons fracture into two halves with their splinter selves living among humans, and a young woman who discovers her lineage is far from human.
Caretakers of dreams, harvest fairies seek to save their realm of the nightmare shortage, a villainous queen is born in a fairytale retelling, and the mythical quilam–the wish horse of Kalda–is confronted once and for all.
