Fantasy Romance is a collection of poems conjured from the ether, peopled with mythological characters and fantastical creatures, and designed to transport you to other times and otherworlds. Here, gods and goddesses, mages and monsters, witches and warlocks, sprites, wights and nixies hold sway, and sometimes ordinary people can become embroiled in extraordinary circumstances.
Here are poems and songs of love and longing, in strangely familiar language, and in a cadence meant to resonate with the magic that is already within you. So sit back and relax, and allow it to seep into your very heart and soul.
Included in this collection are original songs written to accompany the Lake Traveler series of fantasy novels.
I was lucky enough to receive this book from the author. I hope the prospective reader will read this review fully before making any prejudgments on the book. I will give the book my thoughts. These thoughts are completely my own and not swayed in any way by anyone else’s reviews or opinions.
This is the second set of poems that I had the pleasure of reading. Just like the first, this set is just as amazing. I have made it clear that I am not a lover of poetry, but there is something about Hall’s fabulous writing that makes it amazing. There are so many lovely poems to choose from. Be Mine just touches your soul in a lovely way and Feel The Rain just makes you want to walk outside and take a deep breath of fresh air.
While the other poems, I mentioned, made me feel like I was listening to a Siren’s Song, this set makes me feel like I am watching the Lady in the Lake. There is something so mythical and magical in these poems. It feels like the words are coming from fairies. The lilt of the tone is like a forest song. Poetry has always made me feel stressed since I would try to find the meaning of each poem, but this was so different. I feel relaxed and at ease with each one. These poems are a cathartic meditation for when I am feeling overwhelmed.
My Rating: I rate these poems 5 out of 5 stars. They truly are amazing and magical. This is a must read along with Songs of Love & Longing. You will not be disappointed at all. I believe that Hall has changed my opinion on poetry. If you love myths and love, read these and listen to the music. Take the time for yourself. I woke up the next day feeling at ease and happy. I hope you feel the same way as I did.
