When Valor Must Hold (Libri Valoris Book 1) Kindle Edition
It is a time of high adventure! A time for noble men and women to say “No!” to the evils that will befall their families and friends if they don’t rise to the task at hand. If their valor doesn’t hold, civilization will fall.
Fifteen authors have spun fourteen tales of hateful wizards, treacherous seas, and scheming foes. Of times when ancient evils roamed the Earth, looking for souls to claim, and dark prophecies foretold what would happen if the Evil Ones were allowed to succeed. This anthology has all of this and more.
When Valor Must Hold focuses on heroes worthy of facing such enemies. A tiny brownie stands up to a massive ogre. A mother races to protect her children. A hunter chases raiders. A guardian serves his king. Heroes lead forces into battle against overwhelming odds. There’s even a goblin trying to save his people by stealing dwarven rum.
Inside are fourteen fantastic stories of enemies testing the valor of heroes great and small. If their valor should fail, they will lose far more than their lives.
Will their swords shatter shields? Will their magic shine forth? Or will they see their homes and families perish when they fail? Step inside and find out!

p.s.-these can easily be a gateway to each of the authors' other worlds.
I sincerely hope that these admittedly excellent authors do better on their next outing, and that they have a next outing together, because having read both long and short form works from many of these authors previously, I know how good they can be. But nobody seemed to bring their top game, and this was the tragic, melodramatic, result. My favorite story of all was actually the final one in the whole book, and the only one worthy of four stars. Fistful of Silver by Quincy J. Allen was the only (rough) diamond in this mess, and one I had nearly given up looking for by the time I got to it.
My favorites include:
Hanging by a Thread - a gumshoe procedural in a an underworld (i.e. Undead) city
Shard's Fortress - a hilarious trope inversion story of a military assault from the Goblin PoV
Horse's Heart - driven by an interesting magic/religious mechanic
What's in a Name? - excellent look at redemption and how it is simultaneously intrinsically performed and extrinsically enabled
But kudos all around and well worth your time
