Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book Breaks down every fairytale. Then the authors weave and build them back together again, binding them together with their own special abilities and imaginations. They have made them Magnificent, Luxurious, Dazzling, Imposing, flamboyant, Grandiose, Radiant, heroic, I could go on, as they have injected nearly every combination of fantasy. How can you re-tell an aged old fable interjecting vampires, robots, goblins, Artificial Intelligence and so much more. I enjoyed every single one of these fairytales, and I even came across ones I hadn’t heard of before. An Example being, one called Tam Lin, so I read the original Scottish fable then read the altered version, Karissa Laurel managed to turn it into a gaming tale, interwoven with the Fae! How much more original thought than that can you experience. All the authors work was new to me as I had never read any of their work before, except Karissa Laurel who is one extraordinarily talented author. With her introducing a new piece of fantasy into this collection is what inspired me to read this book. Now I will be looking into what other books these authors have written. Great fantastically story’s, inspired by these authors originality and immense imagination. I will never look at another fairytale without expecting some surprise waiting in the wings.
