Reviewers say:

“How I wish it were another novel!! I hope Brightley returns to this sweet story – it’s certainly a worthy beginning!”

“A very short story, but richly drawn. Street Fox is an episode in the larger world of Erdemen, the Honor sword and fantasy series by C.J. Brightley. It’s an introductory tale, a prequel of sorts to a novel set several generations after The King’s Sword (Erdemen Honor Book 1) . While the story doesn’t provide a lot of detail as to the state of the realm – the POV is from that of a young street urchin who is not expected to understand the larger political forces at work – the storytelling is adept and offers an emotional connection to the characters as they face tragedy and triumph together. This short work is recommended as a good intro to both the writer’s style and her deep and complex fantasy world.”

“This is a wonderful example of a short story. The author described the people, scenes, and the atmosphere of the age succinctly, yet so in depth it was easy to imagine. A lot takes place in twenty-two pages; the emotions of the young boy drip from the page. If C. J. Brightly writes this well and presents her stories in the same compelling way in her full-length books, they will knock off my socks! Not only was it well written, but I was disappointed when it ended. Based on this alone, I would say anything she pens will be a good investment of a reader’s time! This short story was marvelous!!”

“I recently listened to “Heroes,” an Erdemen novella, and discovered that this short story in my library told the background of one of the main characters. Knowing where the street urchin ultimately ends up makes this well-written tale even more poignant but it is complete in and of itself and draws you into its world and reality until you, too, can smell the fish guts at the market and feel the horse beneath you rising to jump a barrier. A lovely coming-of-age fantasy.”
