A progeny of monsters waits in the forest... A faerie offering heals an ancient pain-A knife in a dark carnival tent opens a new one. Names give power to curses and curses make monsters of us all. A man in love with a valley is tempted by fire. GAIA: SHADOW AND BREATH VOL. 2 is a collection of fantasy, dark fantasy, and magical realism inspired by Mother Earth. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Nature Conservancy.
