Book Review: Denizens of Distant Realms by Dawn Vogel

In Denizens of Distant Realms, fantastical things intertwine in half a dozen fantasy short stories. Dragons and witches fend off suitors by unconventional means, old pacts with demons are fixed with true love, dark magic threatens lives and livelihoods, and magical shoes and mermaids both offer young women new opportunities.


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Denizens of Distant Realms is six fantasy short stories. They’re not connected in any way, but each short story kept my interest. From magic shoes to dragons to mermaids, most of these short stories have good endings that are sometimes a bit unexpected.

My favorite short story was “A Dark Place” in which a young man who is homeless and penniless agrees to go to a mansion to work but is warned that no one ever returns. Will he be the first?

I definitely recommend Denizens of Distant Realms for anyone who likes fantasy. It’s especially good if you just have a few minutes to read.
