C.S.CHATTERLY AND AMANDA MCINTYRE
Faery Fantasy Anthology
Rating: 4 Cups
Roan is a man who has always believed in Faeries, despite the jibes of his friend
William. That belief has kept him going when he would have given up. One day he
meets a beautiful faery and falls in love. Feeorin wants to be with Roan; but to do so,
either she must become mortal or he must become faery. He does not want her to
sacrifice her immortality. They can not be together until he has written down all of their
stories, so that they will never be forgotten.
This is a moving and sometimes sad story about a lonely man and a beautiful faery who
must honor their obligations before they can be together.
Something Faery Special
Falon is on her first trip to Ireland when her rental car breaks down in the middle of
nowhere. Three men stop and offered to help. They help rob her, beat her, and rape
her, until a huge hunk of a man roars up on his motorcycle and scares them away. Rory,
the leader of the Faeries, has been protecting the fey and their land for many years. For
sport, he seduces mortal women during tourist season. Falon is beautiful and more
than willing, but he wants more from her than just a fling during her vacation.
This is the best story of the anthology. Falon and Rory find true love does exist despite
Maggie is watching television one night when a program featuring a princess who finds
her way into Faerie bewitches her. She finds herself envying the princess and
wondering what will happen to her handsome brother-in-law. Rupert, younger brother of
a king of Faery, envies his brother his new bride, and wonders if there is someone out
there for him. He takes a walk and sees a beautiful woman in a paper crown.
This short work finds a woman getting very involved in a television program, and a faery
prince finding the woman of his dreams.
The three stories have a shared theme of humans falling in love with the Fey. In the first,
a man has to finish his self-appointed task of writing down their stories before he can be
with his love. In the second, a Faery leader realizes humans are more than toys when
he meets his soul mate. In the last story; a disillusioned woman who wants to believe,
finds herself in her own fairy tale. All three stories are well written with very vivid
descriptions and characters. This is a great anthology for lovers of faery tales.
