A collection of six folklore retellings that will twist your mind and claim your heart.

SHIMMER: A heartbroken boy rescues a mermaid… but is it too late to save her?

BETWEEN is about a girl, a genie, and a ton of bad decisions.

SUNSET MOON: Eloise doesn’t believe in Native American magic–until the dreamcatcher spiders spin her down an unknown path.

THE MAKER: An incapacitated young man bent on revenge builds a creature to do it for him.

A BEAUTIFUL MOURNING: The story of a Maya goddess torn between duty and love, and the ultimate sacrifice she must make to achieve true happiness.

THE BARRICADES: When a human girl risks everything to save the life of an Eternal prince, will their feelings for each other change the world they know, or tear it apart?

The focus is romance in the six short stories in this anthology. With a combination of realizing your dreams and learning who you really are. The loss or gaining of love playing a part in the characters learning more about who they are and what they want.

As the summary of each stories details they all involve a supernatural element. Even though there were a few characters that I did not like, I was able to leave each story with something to think about. My favorite story was The Maker. Very entertaining and although I wouldn't do it exactly the same way, definitely something that I have wanted to do at times.

They were very fast and fun reads, dealing with heartache and new found love a lot of bad decisions and soul searching.
