Somewhere Enchanted

Somewhere Enchanted by [T., J.F.]

Somewhere Enchanted is a short story by J.F. T. focusing on the troubles of the village Elnubrium. For generations, tales have been passed down about the forest surrounding the town. Suspicions, enchantment, and sheer fear keep anyone from entering the forest, thus preventing an ever-expanding community from thriving. That is until one day, one heroic warrior tires of watching his village crumble before him and sets out to dispel the myth once and for all.

This is a quick read, but this reduction in pages certainly does not detract from a well-written story. An almost fairy tale/mythical retelling but one aimed at the adult reader, what’s not to love?

I genuinely loved this tale. Initially, I had expected it to be somewhere cheesy, as are many re-tellings and morally led stories you read as an adult. However, this was well constructed, delivered, and excellently paced to match.

The description of the forest and what waited for Grettos was equally as enjoyable as the prose itself. Grettos is a well-drawn character, even in just a few short paragraphs. He emulates the strength and masculinity of a strong protagonist, alongside a caring nature not only shown to his wife but to the wider village.

A fun tale that highlights the problematic power of rumor, Somewhere Enchanted started perfectly and left me with a smile on my face after the last few lines. It’s a tale that I won’t forget anytime soon!
