Twisted Myths: 20 Classic Stories with a Dark and Dangerous Heart by Jane Laurie


Readers may be familiar with these traditional tales of gods, demons, and tricksters but they've never heard them like this before! Award-winning fantasy author Maura McHugh revisits the popular myths of Loki, Odin, Cupid, and Psyche and others from Greek and Norse mytholog—as well as lesser known fables from Africa, Asia, and the Americas—and gives them a macabre makeover. These gruesome myths of love, treachery, sacrifice and revenge include:

  • India’s birth story of Ganesha
  • The secret name of Egypt’s Ra
  • China’s irrepressible Monkey King
  • Japanese Sun Goddess Ameratsu who banishes the night

    All 20 terrifying tales are accompanied by stunningly dark illustrations that heighten the mood, and will leave readers thrilled, chilled, and eager for more.
