The collection of twisted fairytales is fun, each story different. I liked the variety, some were dark takes, others just a different take on a familiar tale. A really good sampler!

I always pick these up because I can find new authors and read old favorites. Definitely worth the $3.

This is 17 authors who came together to give their darker side take on faerie tales that are from their past. These stories are not you nice happy romantic stories you remember from your childhood and I would make sure to read this with the lights on. They aren't full blown scary but they aren't warm and fuzzy either lol. I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review.I enjoyed reading these because sometimes the sugar and spice and everything nice gets a little boring but these kept my attention.
