The Firebird and Other Stories is a great collection of short stories by R. Cooper. I enjoyed meeting each of the magical creatures and humans in these stories. Love comes to those who are worthy even if they themselves do not think they are. You will meet many wondrous beings in this world. I liked the way that many of these stories were interwoven and connected to each other. These stories are full of great characters that show so much emotion. Robert Nieman does a good job of bringing this world to life and I was quickly lost in this audio book.

I loved all of the characters in this book. From the Firebird to the imp, they all had great personalities and so much to say. None of them imagined that love would be something that they could attain but attain it they do. These are not all the beautiful fairy tale creatures that always come to mind. Alongside the Firebird and werewolf you will find a troll, an imp and more. These characters show great emotions and depth. Each of them is so much more than what they appear to be. Their human counterparts are just as unique and have just as much to say.

I was immediately immersed in their adventures and felt drawn to each couple and their adventure. As they learn that love is always worth the risk they also learn that they are worth that risk. Taking that chance may be hard but it could be so worth it. I hope that this is not the last time we get to visit these characters and their worlds.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
