We rated this book:


Dragon Springs & Other Things: A Short Story Collection: Book I is the new aptly titled anthology by Raven Oak. As the name suggests, Oak’s tales contain a bit of everything, from building a dragon to exorcizing water demons, from sinister holiday tales to online trolls. These stories vary in length, with some being pure fantasy while others harbor elements of truth. As wildly diverse as each account is, the one factor all the stories contain is magic.

Oak is an award-winning fantasy author who is best known for their novels. She is also very accomplished at shorter fiction, with entries in many anthologies. Many of the stories that appear in this book have previously been published. Other stories are originals written for this book. All the stories are delightful. Oak explores a wide range of subjects and styles in her storytelling. Every story concludes with the author’s notes explaining their thoughts. It’s fun to see where these stories came from. Whether you enjoy their young adult series or short fiction, this collection is a wonderful read.
