The Bardic Tales are a set of short stories written about the Marauders between the major books so we can sneak a peek at what’s to come and what has happened to our favorite people while we wait. Though you won’t always find romance, you will experience each brother in a way which gives deeper insight into their psyche, hopes, and dreams for when their book and their Anamchara is found. In starting this book, just as with all in the Marauder series, I’ve included the prologue to set the tone for the stories which follow. For those who are familiar with the first two books, this might get your memories flowing. For those who are new to the Marauders — the prologue will answer questions which often come up when the Maraigh brothers step into your life.
