あらすじ・解説

Cainsville, Illinois. A town founded by fae escaping the Old World. A town both part of the world and cut off from it. A town that a young woman will run to, fleeing her past, only to discover that her past extends further than she ever imagined, into the distant history of Cainville itself.

Collected in this volume are the stories of the town’s past, of the people and the fae she will eventually meet.

A child tormented by visions of fae castles and fierce dragons.

A hobgoblin who tries in vain to avoid his role in an ancient prophecy.

A boy, the product of that prophecy, who wants only a Solstice gift for his aunt.

A writer who discovers all publicity is not really good publicity after all.

An orange cat who won’t quite stay dead.

Another cat with more than his nine lives, one continually reborn to right an ancient wrong.

And, finally, a story of Olivia herself, the young woman who ran there, now running away, searching for something she can’t quite find.

3) "Gabriel’s Gargoyles"

Loved it!

All the stories were very entertaining. I was hoping for more stories about Olivia and Grabriel's adventures after Rituals. Maybe that's still to come. ;-)

Might be better to read than to listen...

These stories are all a part of the Cainesville tales: some are better than others. I particularly liked the young Gabriel tales.
What I did not like were some of the readers: I found the 2 who read the last tale, the Ricky & Olivia tale particularly grating. These are not the readers who read the novels, but I’m not sure that’s the problem. At any rate, I found it distracting enough that I had a hard time focusing on the story. I might just end up re-reading it on Kindle.

Brilliant

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories! I loved matagot and getting Tc's origin story, although my favourite remains Gabriel's gargoyles!
