The SFWA Fantastic Beasts Bundle:
Throughout human history, the creatures of myth have always been with us. From the gryphon's embodiment of nobility to the world-devouring snake that coils beneath the world till the end times, these beasts embody our hopes and fears. In these uncertain times, we need their strength, whether the great dragon is an obstacle to conquer or a friend to ride into battle. However they are used, they are the stars of this bundle, The Fantastic Beasts.
SFWA is an organization dedicated to promoting and supporting science fiction and fantasy writers in the United States and worldwide. The Fantastic Beasts bundle was curated by SFWA members, presenting the works of fifteen different authors as they take on the theme in many different ways.
The bundle includes: Moonshadow, the first book in the three-part series by USA TODAY and New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison; The Heritage of Power series (Books 1-5) by Amazon bestselling author Lindsay Buroker; and Bloodrush, part one of the bestselling Scarlet Star series by Ben Galley, among many others.

Eyrie by K. Vale Nagle
"Ground parrots, opinici, and gryphons, oh my! Eyrie transports you to a brand-new world of exotic yet relatable characters and will leave you eager for the next installment."– Roz Gibson, author of the Griffin Ranger series
Moonshadow by Thea Harrison
"Moonshadowis exactly what I expect of a Thea Harrison story, a stay-up-all-night read. Marvelous characters, lots of action and romance, and just the right touch of humor. This one goes on my keeper shelf. I loved this book."– Patricia Briggs, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of the Mercy Thompson Series
Sunset, She Fights by Tameri Etherton
"A wonderfully amazing and creative book that makes you want to scream,cry, fight and be there to help Rainne through everything she has to deal with."– Amazon review
Bursts of Fire by Susan Forest
"An emotional story of familial love, tension, and mistrust among three sisters and three brothers . . . devastated by conquest and fanaticism. Readers who relish adventure mingled with a message will be engrossed in the plights of the two sets of siblings."– Publishers Weekly
The Cursing Stones by Sonya Bateman
"Another fabulous book by Sonya Bateman, and the beginning of a new series. I love the story line, and the characters are very real. Very much enjoyed this book, and can hardly wait to read the next one. If you enjoy Druids, Arthurian legends and strong female leads, you will love this."– Amazon
Cici and the Curator by S. J. Wynde
"…a charming, cozy magical adventure across space, full of fun details and adorable monster dogs (who eat people), with a real Diana Wynne Jones feel. I loved the heroine by the end of the book - the final reveal at the end was FANTASTIC"– Stephanie, Goodreads reviewer
Night's Favor by Richard Parry
"Outstandingly well-written, this offers a fresh and 'realistic' perspective on werewolves. The plot requires perhaps a little more than usual suspension of disbelief; I found Elsie Morgan's motives and actions a bit of a stretch, so also the extent of what a private military company might get away with. However, I was completely invested in the characters and the suspense of the story, and I reckon Richard Parry a top-rank action and combat writer. A werewolf action fantasy that breaks the genre mould, it's a great read. My response was to buy the remaining two books in the series."– Amazon Review
Song of Shadow by Natalya Capello
"Natalya Capello's Song of Shadow, the first book in her new Ballad of Emerald and Iron series, far exceeds that standard. It's simply superb. Action, thrills, a sinister conspiracy, magic, thrills and adventure await, with a truly superb heroine in Lorelei and an epic-fantasy-in-the-making plot and story arc start."– 5 Star Review from the Mysterious Amazon Customer
Heritage of Power - The Complete Series Books 1-5 by Lindsay Buroker
"This was not what I was expecting; it was so much better. It has good pacing, well-developed characters, and a rich world filled with details. You can read the description and get an idea of what the story is about, so all I will say is that the writing is strong and the craft of the story is excellent. It's well worth your time."– Kaede, Amazon reviewer
Prince of Foxes by H. L. Macfarlane
"A beautifully written faerie tale that doesn't give anything away. The characters are complex, the story keeps you guessing, and even at the end you're not sure where your sympathies lie."– Amazon.co.uk reviewer
All Things Huge and Hideous by G. Scott Huggins
"Hilarious! Veterinary horror like Terry Pratchett would write!"– D.J. Butler, author of WITCHY EYE
Whalemoon by Dustin Porta
"This may be the most creative book I've read in quite some time. The characters are unusually fresh and imaginative. Consider as one example, the sharkling. Mako is not merely a rewrite of Celtic Selkie tales, she is (indisputably) her own fresh and vivid personality […] unique, original, and thoroughly unpredictable."– Jack Kuhn, author of Tomorrow’s Wilderness
The Wolf at the End of the World by Douglas Smith
"I can't remember the last time I read a book that spoke to me, so eloquently, and so deeply, on so many levels. ... I'll be rereading it in the futurebecause it's that sort ofbook. Richly layered and deeply resonant. An old friend, from the first time you read it."– Charles de Lint, World Fantasy Award winner
Windsworn by Derek Alan Siddoway
"I wasn't three pages into this book and I was completely drawn in. The world building, the characters, the unique plot, all had me losing sleep till the last page!"– Kindle Customer
Bloodrush by Ben Galley
"★★★★★. An accomplished coming-of-age story... it deserves to stand shoulder to shoulder with all the professionally edited fantasy books released by the major publishers."– Fantasy Book Review
