Publisher's Summary

A short, urban fantasy tale set in Edinburgh, Scotland. An introduction to the Edinburgh Elementals series.
Michael has just moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, to make a fresh start with his three children. While they're out exploring the city, he's relaxing with a glass of wine.
That is until a knock on the front door leads to a bizarre revelation from a strange, red-haired woman, and an encounter in the attic with some unexpected guests.
About the Series...
Giants, pixies, mermaids - all creatures confined within fairytales. But what if these being were as real as you or I? They're not that easy to spot but if you look properly you will find them.
Thanks to her different-colored eyes, Edinburgh resident, Hattie, can clearly see that goblin sitting on the park bench tripping up passers-by, or the salamander that's relaxing in the flames of next door's bonfire. As long as the creatures don't bother her, she won't bother the creatures. But if they do cause trouble, they'd better watch out...

Good story, TOO SHORT

I bought this story without paying attention to the length. The story is good. It is complex and interesting, but it's wayyyy to short. I would almost say that it is worth the credit, but I can't wholeheartedly say it and mean it because of the length. So, if you're looking for a short story and don't mind spending a credit on it, this is a decent story. Is it worth a credit without more length? No. In fact, it does seem to be episodic, and you have to buy each story to get the whole story. I would have given four stars if the length had been there. So, again, decent story, far too short, and much is the pity.

The Trouble with Pixies is a very fun and fast read! A delightful UF short with a huge dose of magic and lore.

In this introductory tale we met Michael, a single dad who just moved to Edinburgh for a new start and a house full of life. But when a stranger with mismatched eyes shows up at his door, he doesn’t realize he is getting more than he bargains for with his new home….

It is no secret that Chris Barnes is one of my favorite narrators and while I am used to his readings having a more darker atmosphere, this lighter read meshed well with his lovely Scottish brogue. Easily bringing the characters to life, it was easy to picture being in Michael’s shoes in this fun short! If you are looking for a quick and engaging read, you need to check out this series! Well done, Gayle and Chris. Can’t wait for more.
