Elementary: All New Tales of the Elemental Masters

DAW. Dec. 2013. 320p. ed. by . ISBN 9780756409593. pap. $7.99. FANTASY
From Samuel C. Conway's tale of how a rabbit and a seabird helped bring about a truce between dueling elemental mages ("Fire-Water") to Kristin Schwengel's story that depicts an alternate cause for the disastrous voyage of the Spanish fleet in 1588 ("Sails of the Armada"), the 19 tales set in the world of Mercedes Lackey's "Elemental Masters" series open new windows upon that enchanted world. Lackey's "Into the Woods" tells of a little girl's trip to visit her grandmother in the forest. Other contributors include Diana L. Paxson, Louisa Swann, Tanya Huff, and Jody Lynn Nye.
VERDICT Series fans and lovers of tales of magic in general should find this collection satisfying.
