Once…: Tales, Myths and Legends of Faerie is a dramatic, thrilling and exciting collection of short stories that will keep readers entertained, captivated and engrossed from the very first page. Fantasy/fairytale stories are currently my go-to read so when I read the description of Once and learned that it featured an abundance of Faeries, I knew that I had to read it as well as review it so that all you lovely readers could read about it. Never before have I been so captivated by a myths and legends book and this is thanks to the exceptional author Ronel Janse van Vuuren who managed to delight me effortlessly with her fantasy tale that is unique and unlike anything I have read before.

Once is an incredible collection, one that I was very excited to read when I read in the description that it involves Faeries and many other mythological beings. I adore mythology, and I love fairy tales, and I admit, I have read many of this nature but Once is different and stands out amongst the crowd thanks to the unique twist at the heart of the story.

Once is a sensational collection of short stories that are all myths and legends based and have a strong focus on Faerie’s and Fae that ‘live in the human realm’. The stories are all unique as well as incredibly entertaining and will entertain as well as captivate readers for many hours on end… I know I was!

The story of Once is excellent and incredibly well-developed thanks to the author Ronel Janse van Vuuren, the author of the book. Vuuren manages to develop her world with immaculate detail; every event, character, and setting is well thought out and planned, and I was impressed by Vuuren’s flawless ability to do this. As I read Once, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Vuuren’s literature, and this is for many reasons. The main reason is that Vuuren’s writing is detailed in the most immaculate of ways, the text is detailed but not heavy, it is beautifully written so that the reader will be able to immerse themselves in the story from beginning to end without difficulty.

Ronel Janse van Vuuren is a phenomenal fantasy author whose literature should not be missed and enjoyed by all fantasy/fairy tale readers. Vuuren creates a stunning labyrinth of unique and intricate stories that will entertain readers for many hours.

As Once is an exciting, compelling and action-packed fantasy adventure that will entertain and delight readers for hours on end I, of course, have to review this incredible book five stars! So please if you love fantasy stories that follow strong characters while being taken on a memorable journey then Once is for you!
