The Legend of the Morning Star

Rated 4.50/5 based on 4 reviews
Mortal women have always fascinated gods - and wind-spirits have carried news of a beautiful princess to the sun-god, Allyon. But his servant, sent to investigate, falls in love and defies his master. Narrated by the Wind-priest Ches, this is the story of the Morning Star.

(Set in the same universe as "The Bear Prince," this is a fantasy folktale for slightly older ears.) More

Jordan Peacock). Her tabletop RPG writing is published by Steve Jackson Games.

Reviews of The Legend of the Morning Star by Elizabeth McCoy

Very good fairy tale for adults. The author creates good mythology that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The Legend of The Morning Star is another Cymelia book, but it’s dreadfully short. Though it does make up for it with content. It’s even narrated by your favorite priest, Ches. The story itself is about one of the deities of Cymelia, one of his servants, and a beautiful girl. Not much else to say other than it’s worth your money and goes quite well with the rest of the Lord Alchemist series.

Creepy in the way that good fairy tales are, this one is believable as a real tale, old and full of warnings. Very nicely executed.

A fairy tale with a twist. I look forward to reading the universe in which the stories are told.
