Anthologies are soon becoming my favorite type of reads, why? They are the perfect books to pick up and get lost in if ever you are having a busy day. I adore anthologies but only if they are written flawlessly with each story being supremely well developed with a wealth of information. Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five is just this; a perfect anthology book that has flawlessly written stories written throughout it that will compel, intrigue and excite you from beginning to end! Mary Ann Bernal, the talented author of Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five, is an incredible writer whose work needs to be recognized and read by all readers so, please book lovers, if you adore anthologies and books with brilliant stories then you will love this! If you are not entirely convinced just yet then read the rest of my review to learn more about this exceptional book!
Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five is, of course, an anthology (a collection of short stories) and so the readers get to experience many different stories and witness many different lives and circumstances. Each story in this excellent collection is unique and different from the other one. They never once sound similar, and that is a hard quality to achieve with an anthology, so already I have to applaud Bernal for her talent to write original, creative stories!
Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five is a composition of five volumes of stories, and they will all compel you to read and get lost in fully. Of course, I am not able to write about each story as they are short and will spoil the book but what I will write is that each story is utterly brilliant and the majority of them feature excellent and unique themes. My particular favorites in volume one were called Desperate Measures, Forbidden Lore, and Sail with Me. Sail with Me was my personal favorite thanks to the military theme at the heart of the story as the protagonist Aaron looks back on his time as a military brat. However, Forbidden Lore for me was thrilling thanks to the theme of witches, and Desperate Measures fulfilled my need for science fiction with its story based around cloning experiment! These are just three of the many stories featured in these five volumes, and I guarantee that every reader will find a story they love!
Mary Ann Bernal is an incredibly talented author; there is no doubt about this as she has proved this in her different short stories. I adored how she managed to set the scene up for the story quickly and make me able to invest in the characters in the matter of a few pages. Her stories may be short, and her anthology, in general, is short as it is only roughly 170 pages, but each tale is well-developed with an excellent plot, rich characterization and compelling components that will make you fall madly in love with Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five!
As I love Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five so much, I have no choice but to award Scribbler Tales Volumes One – Five a dazzling five stars! It is a unique, chilling, thrilling, exceptional book that will have you turning the pages with haste. The stunning literature courtesy of Mary Ann Bernal will excite as well as enthrall you from the first page with her well-formed stories. So please book lovers, read this excellent book, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you, Aimee Ann, for the wonderful review. I am delighted you enjoyed the stories. Weekly episodes would work well on the small screen, and my characters do agree. More stories await, so stay tuned.
