Lose yourself in tales of yore, in myths, fairy tales, and legends shrouded in the mists of time. These are stories of beasts and men from ancient tomes, of gods, sorcerers, and ancient heroes, of fairies and elves, of dragons and unicorns, and almost anything you might dream. Let your imagination take the reins and experience the power of the timeless past as men in many different forms undertake the highest of quests: the search for a love of the ages.

This book had so many different stories and authors to enjoy. With a wide variety of writing styles and plots there is sure to be something for everyone in this anthology. Whether it is a story about the Genie in the lamp or a Chinese dragon you are bound to find a wondrous tale of love and myth in this book.

There were many stories that I enjoyed and a few stood out more than the others. In The Wild Hunt by Cari Z. we see a child grow into a man and his intense love that never dies. This was an interesting story that used the mystical legend of the wild hunt.

The Sower and the Reaper by Helen Madden brings us a wonderful tale of love and worship. I really enjoyed watching young Hosa learn and love.

Yet another story, The Flower Boy by Belinda McBride, brings to life one of the Eight Immortals of Taoism. This was a very touching story of finding love even when you are not looking for it. This story also ends with a beautiful twist. I could go on about more stories like the one about the fairy and the one about the dragon but you must read this anthology for your self and see just what wonderful stories you enjoy the most.

Of course with any anthology that I have read I found some stories I loved and some that I did not. This book was a nice way to visit old authors and find new ones to enjoy. It is a great way for new readers to try different authors and writing styles. I think that many readers will find this anthology a good read.
