    2. I bought this anthology not really knowing what I was going into because I only know two of the authors and I wasn t really sure what I was going to get In saying that however, I was also really dead set on getting it despite that because hey, it s dragons, and I really really love dragons After reading it, I had rather mixed feelings Sure I was mostly disappointed in the stories, however, I still didn t regret buying it because it was rather enjoyable though my bias for dragon stories is obviou [...]

    4. Dragons are fascinating creatures, aren t they I ve always thought so, so when Storm Moon Press issued this anthology of stories about dragons, I was immediately putting up my hand for a review copy The anthology is made up of seven different stories, all within the fantasy genre and generally all had the theme of dragon shifters In the end, I didn t enjoy this anthology as much as I thought I would There were some stories that shone out from the anthology, but on the whole, for such an interest [...]

    9. Fugue in Gold and Fire by Avery Vanderlyle 12 March 2017, 5 starsMaybe I shouldn t have been as surprised as I was, but this was brilliant The idea was excellent, a planet of people mysteriously forced into animal forms when a particular comet returns But it was just wonderfully beautifully written Enough that I plan to immediately go see what else this author has written Teller of Tales by D.K Jernigan 13 March 2017, 3 starsIntriguing idea A dragon who s been cast out for being gay writes a fan [...]

    10. A story by story review on Dracones published by Storm Moon Press and edited by S.L Armstrong Fugue in Gold by Avery VanderlyleQuite liked this story The characters were likeable and I was eager to see how the main protagonists relationship would turn out The setting and plot had the trappings of a really good fantasy and was a world I was engaged in and happy to read and learn about The overall story did have a couple moments where it felt a tad predictable though given how this is all about dr [...]

    11. Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance 3.75 overall Fugue in Gold and Fire by Avery Vanderlyle I really liked the idea behind this story and enjoyed the execution as well We got just the right amount of information for the story length and I didn t feel like anything was missing when it ended 4.25 Teller of Tales by D.K Jernigan This was an interesting little story I liked how the author delivered the mythology for dragons in this world However it ended quite abruptly 3 Weird Magics by E.E Ottoman I q [...]

    13. 4 stars overall, my reading progress has reviews of the individual storiesmy favorites were Finding the Rain 4 stars Fugue in gold and fire 3.5 stars Lukos Heat 4 stars Teller of Tales 3.5 stars Weird Magics 3 stars The other two were my least favorites as they felt either incomplete or slightly less than satisfying to read Perhaps they weren t meant to be novellas and as a result the end product of squishing them to short stories was not up to snuff.

    14. Great short dragon themed stories Some where promising than others but overall really well done and fun to read There was some stories I wished that were longer since it had a great setup and brought up issues that could have been easily expanded into full length novels There is one in particular in the anthology that I thought was a bit oddly errwell uniquely executed I felt as if I was reading the authors thought instead of the characters interpretations.
