The Books

Synopsis

* Tale of Tales is a high/epic fantasy saga based on the motifs of ancient myths, legends, and forgotten fairytales *

Senka is no hero, but you never know what is coming for you. And if that burns down your house and family, while you are left blinded by your house’s guardian snake, the outlook becomes grim. So Senka clings to her dog’s back to survive, unaware of the fateful prophecy and the great changes to come. But when a wandering warrior becomes her protector and mysterious strangers join their hounded party through a series of seemingly chance encounters, they all begin to discover that all is not as it seems.

What is pursuing her? And why? Can the strange characters gathering around her on her desperate quest save her from doom? Are they mere puppets of a young, beguiling witch guided by her own hidden motives, or are forgotten shadows rising again from the immeasurable depths of time? A tale of folk fairytales and myths, of swords and sorcery and mythical beings – a unique story of dark times and unsung heroes who may light your way.

Viktor S.Actor

I know it is only the beginning of a series, but I really liked this novel. Riddles, mysteries, fights and surprising twists are intertwined in it. And I absolutely loved the mythology seamlessly embroidered in it.

Zeljka M.Harpist / Teacher

Tale of Tales is maybe intended for adults, but it is not only for adults. Reading it, I felt like a child, in a mysterious world like the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie. In short – I love it! I believe that middle graders, or at least young adults, will love it too.

Nestor S.Designer / Freelancer

The first novel in the Tale of Tales series is a very beautiful book, both visually and in terms of content. As I read it, I remembered my grandmother telling me fairy tales that no one was able to surpass. My grandmother is long gone, all that is left is the memory of her and the wonderful evenings by the stove and beautiful folk tales. And here, Nikola Stefan gifted me one such tale, after what seems like a thousand years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
