Blurb: Faeries are part of mythology the world over, past, present, and future. Called elves, brownies, the fae, and more, they evoke a sense of wonder and a little danger. Faery has its own rules, and humans enter at their peril. In this spirit, we bring you the first book in the Myths Untold anthology series—four stories from the land of the Fae: a homeless man in Cardiff and the luck that could destroy him; the trans man in future San Francisco who falls for an elf; the village boy who has always been a little different; and a faery prince whose birthright was stolen from him. Welcome to Faery.

The Other Side of the Chrysalis A Myth of Men Story by Brandon Witt

This was a great story but also horrifying at what was done to Quay. My heart broke for Quay’s suffering silently as he watched his perfect brother take his place. At the same time he sse’s Flessar, an outcast like him as attractive. It is forbidden for them to be together though. The whole story was both magical yet sad. It was a great mix.

Tyler and Marsh were a great match in this story as one is different than the others and soon learns why. The overall feeling is learning to live with the truth and being happy in the situation as you can.

Tris takes Colton on the other side of the wall and shows him things he’s never seen before. I loved how this story showed the differences between the two men and places. It was a perfect blend to keep the reader interested.

I have to say I normally do not like all the stories in an anthology yet this one I loved them all. They each were unique in their own ways and were beautifully written. Highly recommended.
