- You always come up against someone more powerful than you are magically. So you either die in a vain battle against them or accept they're going to be the one throwing their weight around, not you.
- The wildlife is bigger, more ferocious and is likely to breath fire at you!
- Magic can and does go wrong. In my Fairy Kingdom it is not unknown for accidents to occur because someone has misread some calligraphy with the spell details on and ended up with results they had not anticipated.
- There are monsters!
- The talking animals that exist may well be more intelligent and have better conversation than you do.

I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
