The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash was a great compilation of short stories. I love all kinds of fairy tale stories and these will now sit among some of my favorites. I love some of the current topics being discussed in different environments. I liked that there was a mixture and you never knew what was coming. Milking Time was my favorite. There were a lot of unexpected twists and I love when fairy tales have a dark twists.

Never Date A Siren is the first novel in the College Fae Magic series by Byrd Nash. This is my first novel by this author.
Far and humans coexist at the Leopoldo Ottos University.
When Brigit gets kicked out of her apartment, she is looking for a new roommate. Only issue, the person also looking for a roommate is a human and she’s never lived with a human before. What could go wrong?
This was a great start to a series and I can’t wait to read this again while waiting for the next novel.
Filled with twist and turns, I couldn’t tell where the story was going to go.
Brigit was a great character and I wonder what is going to happen next for her.
For anyone looking for a short fun read, I recommend.
The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash is a brilliant collection of short stories.
Books like this aren’t usually the type or think I enjoy and yet each and every story I read I enjoyed so much. The stories were well written and packed with such detail that they each felt like a full length novel.
The characters were all brilliant. They were developed well, each one progressing as the story did. Part of the reason why I tend not to like these books is I usually mix the characters up the more of the stories I read. However with these book each ones were completely separate and easy to remember.
Although still not my favourite type of book I definitely enjoyed this one and would certainly read more by this author in the future.
I loved the novel, or compilation, or whatever you want to call it, The Wicked Wolves of Windsor! It was so aptly and eloquently written, it was hard to put down. If you love fantasy novels and stories, this nook is for you! There are eight short fantasy stories, and I thought they were all so heartfelt and genuine, and held all the emotions. Byrd Nash did not disappoint with this one! I highly recommend and can’t wait to read more from her in the future!
College Life; finals, and the Fae trying to kill you….
Never Date a Siren is the first book in the college Fae series, where we are introduced to unique characters in a magical world of Bewacherberg, where humans and Fae come together.
American college student, Logan Dannon, discovers his fellow fae students operate under a different code of honour to what he is accustomed to. The only way of hoping to survive the semester, is to is to decipher their tangled laws of civility.
Brigit, a fae runaway, didn’t plan on getting a human roommate. Or that she would be placed under a fairy debt. It will be down to Brigit to try and save Logan from a siren’s love spell, or will she will this be unsuccessful and fail the semester? She is a stickler for a fae law, and she is determined to fulfil this when needed.
I loved reading this book, it was such an easy read and the story flowed magically within the beautiful world of fantasy this story was built in. It was humorous at times when Brigit spoke to her floor mat and flowers and I absolutely loved how the writer wove these two worlds of the human and fae together seamlessly.
This is a wonderfully charming book, where the writer really makes you stir your imagination and brings a fairytale into the supernatural, with a suspenseful twist. I could not wait to read the next chapter and I enjoyed every part.
I cannot wait for the next instalment to see what is next for these delightful characters.

Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash
This is the first book that I have read from this author. I really enjoyed it and will definitely look for more books written by her. I thought this book was quite interesting and original. The thing I loved best was the fact that the author used less “popular” supernatural beings. There were dryads, naiads, sirens, and a bard; not the usual vampires and werewolves.
The story takes place at Leopold Otto University in a country that the Fae have kept hidden for decades. It is the only school where both human and fae attend. Brigit, à dryad princess, never thought that she would have a human for a roommate but this is the situation she finds herself in. The Fae live by a different code of conduct so when Brigit realizes Logan is in serious trouble with a siren, she needs to help him. What ensues next is a fast paced adventure of tightrope walking between debts of honour and laws of civility. Can Logan survive? This is an imaginative story filled with charming characters. It’s a definitive must read!
I give Never Date a Siren: A College Fae magic series #1 by Byrd Nash, 5 stars!
This book was absolutely amazing! This is my favorite genre, but it went above and beyond what I was expecting. It is fun, exciting and suspenseful all wrapped into one. The characters have huge personalities and I can’t say I’ve read a book where the main character is a dryad. I like how the author incorporates creatures we do not normally see in supernatural books. Not only that, she quickly explains what they are to those who do not know. That earns bonus points in my book.
Then there’s the story itself. Again, very unique. It takes the woman scorned angle and spins it for a wild ride. A curse is placed on a human and Brigit is determined to break the curse. That is just the very start of it though, there is really so much more involved. Most of it takes place in college in an absolutely amazing little town, but that is not all. This adds to it even more. I cannot wait to read the next book!
If you like fun, quirky urban fantasy with a great story and amazing characters, this book is for you.
Review by @erinwolf79
This book is a great story about the supernatural world and how they work together to get rid of negative people. Brigit is a college student and also fae. After a close call a guy called Logan stops her from drinking something thats been drugged. This action leads Brigit to be in his debt and the way she sees to pay him back is to remove the curse of his ex girlfriend off him.
Sibyl is a siren, who captured Logan’s heart in more ways than one and since they split she is using her powers to slowly kill him.
Can Brigit with the help of her fae friends find a way to save Logan or is Sibyl going to get away with it.
Never Date a Siren (College Fae Book 1) by Byrd Nash – Review by Gail Guerrero
I enjoy a story that centers around far and humans living together. Makes you want to believe in fairytales. The story centers around Logan and Brigit. Logan is a human with some secrets of his own. Brigit is a fae who ran away just looking for a place to lay her head. The author built a world were fae and humans live together. A world built on a balance system. I really liked getting to know Brigit. Her life was really interesting and sad. Logan lacked too much for me to really get into him. I do understand the reason why but it doesn’t stop me from rolling my eyes. I enjoyed the plot and the characters growth. The story did drag but it’s worth the read. There are some funny moments that had me face palming. Overall I really couldn’t find a reason not to read the book. Fae are interesting creatures that keep you on your toes. The author had a nice flow while writing this story. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Life is full of surprises and this story holds many.
