Autumn Books Preview: Cathedral of Myth and Bone

If you haven’t read Kat Howard’s Roses and Rot yet you are missing out. Especially if dark, drifting, fantasy is your thing. Her stories are never saccharine and always pack a punch. That’s why we were overjoyed with A Cathedral of Myth and Bone, a series of short stories dealing with the weird and wonderful in the most magical way. With stories dealing with enchantment, joy and magic that you never have seen before.

In these stories, which are equally as beguiling and spellbinding as her novels, Howard expands into the enchanted territory of myths and saints, as well as an Arthurian novella set upon a college campus, “Once, Future,” which retells the story of King Arthur—through the eyes of the women who influenced him. This was our favourite story in the collection and we would be telling you to read it just for this!

Captivating and engrossing, and adorned in gorgeous lyrical writing, Kat Howard’s stories are a fresh and stylish take on fantasy. It is beautiful and will keep you hooked for every minute, every moment that you are reading. The best stories will take you beyond this world and right into the next. Enjoy every single second.

As editor of Cinders magazine books, television, comic books and the lack of representation for women in movies that I otherwise enjoy are most of what I talk about. Aside from reading I write, mostly about driving from Galway to Ennis. You can find more of my musings over on Twitter @redridinghood19. Check out Cinders magazine at www.cindersmagazine.com
