Overview

We all know the fairy stories from childhood? Beautiful heroine meets handsome mysterious hero; they fall in love, marry, and live happily ever after?or do they?

In these retellings of The Goose Girl, East of the Sun, West of the Moon, Beauty and the Beast, and a Selkie Legend, Caroline Aubrey re-imagines these stories for a modern world; the same horrors facing women in the old world face them in the new one, but this time there is a twist: to survive the horror of the Bloody Chamber, we must keep our wits about us and rely upon the strength of women to do so.

Pointing to the keys, Kitsen separated them, until the lightest one stood out. "This is the key to my room. You will have no need of it, but it is here." Standing, he placed his hands on her shoulders, and kissed the top of her head. "My dearest love, I shall return in two days," he said. And then, he was gone.
