Think you know your fairytales? Think again. These aren’t your normal happily-ever-after. Within these pages, a murderous Little Mermaid gets her revenge, the Cinderella doesn’t really want to wear the slipper, Snow White is up to her eyes in industrial experiments, and the Beauty is in fact the Beast.
I have a sweet tooth for fairytale and happily ending tales...I also love the fantasy that gets me into a world away from reality for a change..This book is a collection of four dark fantasy that roots from famous fairytale with a difference...
My favorite is the first one in the group Song of the Abyss...Losing her parents in a tragic accident Princess Nerissa had been content to slip into a life of contentment to be married to the crown prince Lyulf ,instead she feels as though she is to be thrown to the ware wolves and to be killed by the very same man who had owed to protect her but then escaping into the sea she learns she had some powers , powers that helped her to survive but not enough to get back to her past life, yet with her sheer grit and a new found love she has to seek revenge and protect the countrymen from a man who is imposing to be the king..It is a slow starter that goes to the era of beautiful Princess and Prince living a fairytale life in the gone by era with special world with their own powers and magic..Oh how much as a young girl I loved these kind of tale to live those magic moment wround me...
Miss Cavendish and the spark of salvation is about George and Huntsmen, Huntsmen though with a disturbing and twisted past leading to George herself needs his help to unravel the milestone that she is all set to open up to the world but oh no there is a vamp to stop all of it and its that is none other than her aunt Xenobia....Enchanting beauty and a fierce dashing man how will they get it through??? This is a power packed full throttle ride that will race through after a slow start of Song of the Abyss..
Hawk and the beast-Trish Marrie Dawson takes you through the curses and the reversal of it by love and honesty that would remind of the fairytale that you once read as a child leaving you all enchanted...Beauty and the beast a unequal combo that always attracts each other...
Reborn city which is like a coming of age tale of Nyx who has only one desire in life to erase the brainwashing of the Omsk's citizen but how will she pose an imposing threat to the giants who are well down playing their part well, but Nyx has to fix it for the benefit of the people but how??Its vivacious and bubbly tale...
All in all its a total package of entertainment ...Great for an easy breezy read...
