I’m a big fan of fantasy books, and the only thing I love more than a fantasy story is several fantasy stories in one boxset! I’ve collated a few of my favourite boxsets and anthologies below, from short stories to full length novels, and clean YA tales to steamy-as-you-like fantasy romance.
Fantasy collections to fall in love with
Realms of Fae and Shadow
Enchanted forests. Deadly bargains. Welcome to the magic of Faerie.
Sadly, this short story collection is no longer available to buy, but you can find the authors on Instagram and head to their websites to get your hands on these stories.
My favourite so far is Heir of Bitter Thorn by Kay L. Moody, and I cannot wait to dive into her series, The Fae of Bitter Thorn. Because, did I mention, every one of these shorts leads into a full length fantasy series?? So good.
Once Upon a Broken Crown
Your favourite fairytales, reimagined.
If you like your fairytales with a pinch of spice, this is the anthology for you! Over twenty fantasy romance writers have joined together to recreate your favourite fairy tales with added steam and sass.
Find the authors on Instagram to find out more about the stories, and add it to your Goodreads shelf too.
Coming March 2022, you can preorder this collection on Amazon now for just 99c/77p!
Old tales: New twist.
This USA Today bestselling collection of twenty-two full length fairy tale retellings is FREE on Kindle Unlimited! Does it get better than that?
Many of the books included are the first in a series, so there’s plenty more where that came from. Discover your new favourite author between the pages of this boxset and you won’t be running out of reading material for a long time…
Add it to your Goodreads shelf or grab the ebook on Amazon.
Girls of Might and Magic
Find your might. Discover your magic.
This anthology is a collection of diverse YA fantasy tales, showcasing diverse characters and stories from #ownvoices authors. With twenty short stories by some of my favourite authors, there’s bound to be something for every fantasy lover.
Alice Ivinya’s story features a girl with a stutter and chronic muscle weakness, set in an Asian-inspired fantasy world! (Alice Ivinya features in no less than three of the anthologies I’ve sharing today because I adore her incredible words.)
Coming 22 June, you can preorder the ebook on Amazon now.
Find out what really lies beneath the waves…
I couldn’t share the anthologies I’m most excited about without mentioning Enchanted Waters! My story, Daughter of the Selkie King will be featured in this collection of ten water-magic fantasy stories this summer.
With tales featuring every fantasy water creature you can imagine (and some you almost definitely can’t), from mermaids and kelpies, to sirens and selkies, you’re bound to find at least one story to fall deep in love with. Discover your new favourite author in our captivating collection of short fantasy stories.
You can preorder Enchanted Waters on Amazon now, and read it from 16 July! And add it to your Goodreads To-be-read shelf here.
