    I love short stories. There's always so much potential for thought provoking ideas. And these did not disappoint. I love short stories. There's always so much potential for thought provoking ideas. And these did not disappoint.

    I have to admit, I usually don't like anthologies. This one was different. Of course, I bought it because all of the stories are fantasy or science fiction. I also really liked that the stories were hopeful even if there was much to overcome. But one thing was way different from the usual anthology. Every story was really good. Mostly 5 star, maybe one or two 4 stars, but none of them were less than that. I have to admit, I usually don't like anthologies. This one was different.

    I backed this one on kickstarter! Heroes of the Realm is a collection of short stories based on the theme of... heroes! As usual, with anthologies, there's a mixed bag of stuff in here. Ashling and the Little People (Kathy Tyers) -- This is an interesting twist on Irish legends and how Christianity pushed out the local beliefs and superstitions of the area. 4/5 stars The Tea Dragon (L. Jagi Lamplighter) -- Obviously my favourite! It has tea. And dragons. The scoundrel (more like dandy) has a chan I backed this one on kickstarter!

Ashling and the Little People (Kathy Tyers) -- This is an interesting twist on Irish legends and how Christianity pushed out the local beliefs and superstitions of the area. 4/5 stars The Tea Dragon (L. Jagi Lamplighter) -- Obviously my favourite! It has tea. And dragons. The scoundrel (more like dandy) has a change of heart which seems somewhat a little too sudden, but tea and dragons make up for everything. Almost. 5/5 stars! The Fire Proof Man is Dead (James Chambers) -- Magic or science? There's some detective work going on here when super heroes end up stealing stuff before turning up dead. It's okay. 3/5 stars The Garrison Holds (Steve Rzasa) -- Somewhat superman like, Tobias is tempted to use his powers the same way the enemy does, even if that goes against the principles he's supposed to be upholding. 3/5 stars Where Monsters Wait (Gabrielle Pollack) -- The monsters aren't real, are they? Lyric has to decide if she believe the mad man or if she's willing to let her village be destroyed. 4/5 stars Will o The Wisps (Wayne Thomas Batson) -- Another one of my favourites! Stoker Graves is crazy about ghosts--he's excited to go to a camp where Will o the Wisps have been said to kill people, but when it starts to come true, will he have the bravery to face them? 5/5 stars The Devil in the Details (Danielle Ackley-McPhail) -- I can't quite decide about this one. I liked it but it didn't quite stick in my memory. I also didn't quite get what the mom was supposed to be. 3.5 stars maybe Glint Starcrost and the Ice Prison (Paul Regnier) -- Dashing rogue in mortal peril? Attempting to save the woman in the midst of the jailbreak? I probably shouldn't like this as much as I did. 4/5 stars Hard s Watcher (Kerry Nietz) -- I liked the twist in this one. I was expecting it to be something super creepy at first. 4/5 stars The Librarian Who Would be King (Teisha Priest) - Nothing super new with this one, but I liked it all the same. My soft heart always goes out to the wronged/framed person being saved at the last minute. And then selflessly saving other people on the way. 5/5 stars The Brick (Jeffrey Lyman) -- mmmm This was a bit too space sci-fi for me. 3/5 stars All in all, a nice read.

    So...I may have stayed up past my bed time to finish this....Oops. But I couldn't put it down! Honestly. This anthology was so good! There were stories where I laughed, rolled my eyes, almost cried and DEFINITELY forgot to breathe. (Seriously... What is it with me and holding my breath during intense scenes?? Air is a gift, dear reader.) This was a perfect way to dip my feet into some new authors (new for me. These authors have been around for a bit. I just have a TBR list ten miles tall. ).

    The contributors of this anthology are some of the crème de la crème of speculative fiction Christian writers today! From spaceships to sea ships, supernatural powers to natural heroism and historical accounts to futuristic events — this book has it all! Readers will get a little history lesson from Medieval times to the Age of Enlightenment, along with modern tales and futuristic adventures.

From spaceships to sea ships, supernatural powers to natural heroism and historical accounts to futuristic events — this book has it all! Readers will get a little history lesson from Medieval times to the Age of Enlightenment, along with modern tales and futuristic adventures. There are so many settings, time periods, characters and themes to absorb and explore, and you’ll dive into each story like a person being time-warped into different bodies and experiences. What I love most about this anthology is that you get an assortment of writing styles. Writers narrate in first person and third person, from a child’s point of view to an adult’s. And heroes come in all shapes and sizes–villains too — ready to woo you into their anxieties, hopes, predicaments and triumphs! Some plots feel like a tense walk through a dark forest, while other plots throw you into the ruckus of the action. Although each short story stands alone as a masterfully written piece of work, together they offer a much bigger collaborative prize — like a gift-wrapped basket filled with hand-chosen artisan, one-of-a-kind gems. And did I mention that my name is in the book? Yep, Alisa Wagner happens to be a “fun, curmudgeonly mentor-type” in Steve Rzasa’s short, “The Garrison Holds,” which was my cool prize for offering a little monetary support (which I would have done anyway) to the anthology. So if you are ready for a whirlwind, adventurous read, purchase Heroes of the Realm from Amazon, which has been aptly dedicated to all the heroes in the world serving their communities!
