This was more of a collection of stories rather than a novella. But the stories were pulled together via the fables. There was a good mix of the fables and the happenings of the day of the Hopeteller. The fables had a message to them and made me feel good.
This wasn’t the normal fantasy genre for this author, but a good collection nevertheless. Quick read that I’m sure I will read again. I recommend you take a short amount of time and read this. I gave this four out of five stars.
