Wow. Just wow. This is a solid line up of stories. The voices and writing had me intrigued from the first story and continued on through the rest of the book. These short stories takes remnants of your favorite fairy tales but the authors twists and turns them and maybe flips them upside down in their own way. I freaking loved it. I enjoyed how each author made it their own and sometimes with a more modern twist with a nod to the darker Grimm versions. Most, if not all of the stories have a fantasy, paranormal, or magical element in the stories as well as a romance which is more than fine with me. That just makes this book up my alley. There are some stories which have a more mature tone but nothing I find extremely explicit but even so I recommend this book for mature readers. Some of the stories I feel like could have been expanded a bit more but overall I mostly wished the stories were longer. I definitely plan on looking up the back list of authors of the stories I loved. I'm sure if you love fairy tales that you'll find a version you love too. If you love fairy tales and enjoy seeing an edgier twist then I highly recommend this anthology. 4.5 out of 5 rating for me! (A copy was provided for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way.)

Fairytale Confessions • Uncloaked – Wendy Owens A thrilling take on Little Red Riding Hood. I loved the characters and would love to see more of their world! • Blayze & Ash – Jessica Sorenson The story was beautiful and romantic. I didn’t care for Ash through most of the story but by the end I think I liked him better. • The Little Mermaid – K.R. Wilburn I have to say, The Little Mermaid is my favorite Fairytale and retellings leave me a bit nervous and usually unimpressed. K.R. Wilburn’s Little Mermaid was absolutely powerful and moving. I had all kinds of feels as I read it. I had to stop reading the book at the end just to write down my thoughts and process this amazing story! • Dance with Me – Trish Thawer This was fun. I didn’t know much about The Twelve Dancing Princesses but after this story I really need to get to know it. • Awakened – Kristen Strassel This story was just fantastic, a rebellious Sleeping Beauty and the fairies are selfish. It is definitely a far cry from the original but oh so good. • Priceless – Sarah J Pepper Seeing as how I love fairytales with a twist I am aware of Sarah J Pepper! Priceless was definitely a new twist on Rumpelstiltskin. This story is beyond words, it deserves 5 to be a book all on its own. I was on the edge of my seat the entire story and couldn’t even begin to guess at how it would end. Loved it!! • The Snow Queen – Shannon Morton OMGosh! What words can I find to describe this story? It was clinically creepy and inspiring. It was very smartly written and the end left me chilled! • Caged – L.P. Dover Caged is a twist of Rapunzel. I was shocked at the twist and pretty much reading the story wide eyed and talking to myself. Loved it, this would be a great story to lengthen! • Puss in Boots – Brynn Meyers I admit, the only story of Puss in Boots I know is from the Shrek movies. This version was definitely sexy and intriguing! • Rell – Amy Daws I went between gritting my teeth in anger and annoyance and weeping with sadness and joy, this modern day Cinderella story was perfectly written. • Casting Crowns and Other Curious Things – Elizabeth Montgomery This was, in my opinion, a perfect retelling of Alice in Wonderland! It stays true to the basic theme but like the movie, this story shows a new Alice. A strong Alice who will win out the day and save Wonderland. This was the first story I read in the collection and it set an amazing tone! • Hansel & Gretel – Cameo Renae Wow, wow, wow! This is Cameo Renae in a new light! Hansel and Gretel is set in the After Light Saga world and I loved every second of it! It was scary, thrilling, and so good! • Real Boy – Kellie Sheridan Pinocchio in the future. I will always think of this story and i,Robot when companies start making robots for the home. Totally creeptastic! I was left wanting more! • Jaclyn and the Beanstalk – M. Clarke A must read for those who loved their fairytales as a kid but are ready for them to be a little more adult!

These fairytale retellings with dark and twisted twists are definitely worth delving into. Note: This review contains NO spoilers I am so glad that I decided to review this collection of fairytale retellings! Although I haven't gotten to all the short stories in time for this blog tour, I am already enthralled with the dark and paranormal twists to these fantastical short stories that I have read..and I am even more excited to continue reading the rest of these short stories! Taking all our favorite fairy tales that we grew up with...even watching it through Disney's vision, this collection takes these classics to a whole different level of romance...and sometimes, not so romantic. The imaginations of these authors can be seen in their remarkable writing. Their ability to world-build and develop character with such vivid and depth brought these paranormal and dark twisted fairytale retellings to life. I can't name just one as a favorite since each short story brought its own intensity. All I can say is that each retelling has its own story to tell that kept me wanting more....mind you, not all has a "happily ever after". But! The "happily ever after" in each story is definitely not what's expected...definitely endings that kept me in awe.

I have read several of the stories in this collection and loved them. I thought they were original, creative, and extremely well written. These aren't your typical fairytales and they definitely aren't the ones you grew up with. There are some great authors in this set and I highly recommend getting this collection to try them out if you haven't read any of their stuff before.
