“I had the opportunity to receive an ARC of “Myths, Legends & Dreams (A Worldsmyth’s Anthology 1)” and it did not disappoint. There are16 short stories included, with some authors having two included. I was immediately drawn in from the first story, “The Golden Mark of Betrayal” by Freya Bell. The story was fast paced and had great detail. It left me wanting to hear more of the story and find out what happens to Maz. “The Mistbeast of Blackwood Forest” by Emma Schouten was one of my favorites in this anthology. It had a unique storyline and provided enough background, in such a short story, for me to want to spend time thinking about how the story might progress in the future. I have vivid images in my mind of the world created in “The Drachenwald’s Guardian” by Ally Kelly. A world where one dragon remains and is fighting to save his kingdom with the help of a young stranger. I would love to read more by Ally Kelly. “The Free State” by Michael Epanchin has some unnecessary swearing in the first few pages that do not really add anything to the story. However, once past that, the story really takes off and has a very interesting concept of alien powers taking over the Earth. “By the Moon’s Last Light” by Sean Kane was a very well written story about war between elves, dwarfs, devilkin and dragons who all possessed magical powers. I was really pulling for Keg and enjoyed reading about a new power that was used on the enemy’s side that I had never read about before. Overall, the stories in “Myths, Legends & Dreams” were entertaining and left me wishing that they would keep going so I could stay immersed in the stories. I have now found a whole new group of authors that have made me interested in reading more of their works. I would definitely recommend giving this anthology a shot. “
