This book is wonderful. Love, romance, lust, violence, horror, betrayal, mysticism, seduction, revenge, angst, twisted, wicked and jaw dropping. All of which describes the lovely Dame Darcy's illustration and writing style. If you are into all of the above with a Victorian undertone you will love this book. . .Bravo! I can't wait till she releases another one.

Dame Darcy is the coolest illustrator and comic book artist working today, period. I'm so glad she's branching out into book-sized books. This one makes a great gift for your favorite goth gal.

If you are a Meat Cake fan, then you will love this book. It has six original, "frightful" fairytales that are very much in line with the rest of Dame Darcy's work. If you are not familiar with Dame Darcy's work, but love traditional Grimm-like fairytales (a little disturbing, violent, and full of Gothic/Victorian charm) you will also enjoy this book.
Book Hub Book Reviews - Angela Pok
The stories in 'Frightful Fairytales' are very much like her drawings—dark, comic, scary and vivid...it provides an entertaining reading experience. The illustrations definitely lend a fair amount of "fright" to the tales...If you're a fan of Dame Darcy, get it...If you're a fan of nice illustrations in general, get it.
