9780973950588: The Storyteller and Other Tales

A collection for adults and older teens, The Storyteller and Other Tales will take you on a journey through exotic worlds and times. Demon bears take human shape and devils walk in the north of a world where every hill hosts a god and every river and spring a goddess. Ulfleif, a warrior-princess who would rather carry a lyre than a sword, is drawn into an unfinished tale by the storyteller Moth, and old lays of vengeance and betrayal wake into bloody new life around her. A slave in Bronze-Age Korthan sees his lovers suffer and die for the crime of worshipping outlawed gods and in the midst of horror at their sin, finds his own faith shaken and takes his own first steps on the road to rebellion. In a tale built on the familiar legends of our world, Merlin's daughter relates the story of the fall of Arthur's Britain as you have never heard it, a tale of adultery and treachery old and well-known, yet fresh and startling in Nimiane's telling. The unnamed common men of England who faced a later generation of sea-raiders are given voice once more in the historical tale of the Battle of Maldon, when English fought Vikings at the Blackwater and lost. In all these tales, the common thread is otherness; other worlds, other times, other ways of looking at heroism and tragedy, faith and betrayal and victory. Build the fire up, shut out the dark, and let The Storyteller carry you away.

Review:

"... she knows how to do characters ... This wonderful offering from Johansen deserves an unabashed five stars." -FantasyLiterature.net

"I felt like I was within the wooden hall listening to the storyteller and was eager to learn more about the people and their ways of life...The Storyteller and other tales is perfect fireside reading, full of bravery, tragedy, belief and treachery. Recommended."-FantasyBookReview.co.uk
"Johansen presents four stories that range from uplifting to eerie with one guarantee: they will all haunt you long after the last page has been turned...The best of books are ones that entertain and yet still manage to compel deep thought on the part of the reader, and this is certainly one of them." - Teens Read Too
