ABOUT THIS SHORT STORY


Born of two worlds but important to neither, Sky Patel balances life between her beloved Edinburgh and its mirror in the faerie realm known as the Wynd. But everything changes with the retirement of her friend and mentor—and sole protector of Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Now, despite her best intentions, Sky finds her careful balance cracking. And she may be called to do more—and be more—than she could ever believe possible.

An urban fantasy short story about finding strength in what you love.

ABOUT ALEXANDRA BRANDT


Alexandra Brandt spent most of her childhood dressing up in fairy wings and parading in front of the mirror telling stories to herself. Not much has changed—she still loves a good costume, and tells herself stories every day. Her stories appear in Fiction River and other anthologies. “We, the Ocean,” her story in Fiction River No Humans Allowed (Vol. 22) was described as “inventive, heartbreaking, and wholly original” by Hugo award-winning writer and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

When not spinning tales, reading, or debating worldbuilding details with her writer husband, Alex writes marketing copy for a medical practice and does graphic design work, including freelance book cover design. She also sketches, sings, watches too many Sci-Fi and superhero shows, and welcomes any excuse to sit down and play tabletop games—from D&D to board games to cards.
