    Holly Black at her best!

    The title story is fantastic & amazing. Much like Stephen King's The Long Walk, sometimes the short stories are the best ones. This collection is a must read!

    Amazing read

    Some stories are better than others but they are all great. Holly Black is a truly amazing writer in my opinion. I loved this book and wish some of the stories had been much longer.

    HIGHLY Recommend.

    This is by far, one of my favorite short story collections. If you are a fan of Black's young adult books, specifically the Tithe series, this is a *MUST* read- but honestly, I think anyone could enjoy these stories. GREAT BOOK.

    Ephemeral and agonizing.

    Taunting, tantalizing, and teasing, Holly Black tickles and tears at your heartstrings as you are led in a somnolent yet maniacal dance through the shadows.

    I am left awestruck; my soul is heavy with a deliciously brilliant melancholy.

    more from this reviewer

    Great book!

    Ummmm...this stories totally rocked my socks off!!! I loved reading each and every single one. They all held a significance of someone getting back at someone. Basically, what goes around comes around. I loved that each story is unique. There were fairies, unicorns, etc. So much goodness.

    I am hoping to see if Ms. Black will continue any of the stories into a full novel. Which anyone she picks, if she does I know for sure I will be dying to read. This a great book with strong characters and plots you will never forget.
