    What readers are saying about the Tale of Tales:

    “I really enjoyed this novel! It is written in a folklore style, reminding me of the Grimm fairy tales, including the character sketches of old (at the start of every chapter and they are amazing!)… A refreshing fantasy, a classic take on a new story.” ―NetGalley Review

    “I just really adored this tale.” ―Goodreads Early Review

    “I enjoyed how Nikola Stefan incorporated folklore into the story and it made it very gripping, especially when mixed with the combat and the borderline horror elements thrown in. I now can’t wait to pick up Part II…” ―BookSirens Review

    “Fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat.” ―Amazon Review

    “I really liked this – it was odd in an endearing way. The heroes were both heroic and flawed, strange enough to not give everything away and to have you liking members of the group, wanting to know what happens to them next. It feels both very familiar and completely different.” ―Claire Buss, Fantasy/SciFi Raven Award Winner

    “Wonderful book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.” ―Amazon Review

    “Creatures of the night, chivalry, a cool dog and lots of unanswered questions and drama… The kind of strange that makes you want to know more. I am anxious to read the next book.” ―Hidden Gems Review

    “This was one of the most enjoyable fairytale style novels I have read in a long time. I truly enjoyed it… I cannot wait for the next book in this adventure.” ―NetGalley Review

    “These epic fantasy novels are as close to tales of old and a narrative poem as one could get, and in a great way. Highly recommend.” ―Booksprout Review

    Deep in the forgotten past, a dark force awakens… The sole survivor of a mysterious devastating attack is hounded by an unnatural pack with a black horseman at the helm…
