Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. A rather tepid anthology for me, with the majority of the fifteen short stories getting no higher than 3 stars. Editors should know that this practice is unwelcome to many readers, an new anthology promoted as a collection of original or re-edited works isn't the place to put in a promotional chapter from a novel as if they were Kindle samples.
Most of the stories here suffer from this flaw, because it's not that they're generally lacking in creative ideas for twisting a classic tale's plot; the worst of the lot was A Brackish Shore by Leigh Hellman, a Little Mermaid retelling that was hard to connect to the original tale.

Only about four of the short stories stood out to me: 1. I by Lyssa Chiavari, a creative mix of the "Westworld" TV show with the Perrault tale that was very charming and that I'd rate 4 stars. Magic All Around by jane Watson, which also gets 4 stars. I'm not familiar with the original fairy tale that inspired this, called "The Goblin and the Grocer" according to the author, so I can't judge it based on the tale's plot and themes, but the story of a goblin fully inserted in and functioning in human society was quite good and can stand on its own even with zero knowledge of its source.
King, which I'd rate 4. It's a very, very dark twist on the Pied Piper that I suspect many will detest, but I found interesting though a touch dramatic. Dance of Deception by Clara Kensie, 5 stars for this story that was my favourite. What's it with the Twelve Dancing Princesses that keeps producing such good retellings? At this rate, I'll end up a fan of the tale itself. So, it was moderately enjoyable for me on the whole, and like a lot of anthologies, it introduced a few new authors that I might want to explore further.

Cinders and Sparks: Magic at Midnight - Lindsey Kelk - Audiobook - BookBeat
As she spends more time with the handsome student, she finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew… and wondering if magic—and love—may be all around her. Damon, author of the Forest Spirit Series Rue is not sure what to expect when she accepts a job at an old mansion in the middle of the woods. To make matters worse, she gets the sense that someone—or something—is stalking her. When Maribel returns from a walk to find her father gone and signs of a struggle, she sets off into the woods with the intention of rescuing her father, knowing that her own secret will help her face whoever took him.
Hungry enough to unshackle herself from a haunted childhood and chase the shimmering caravan lights that promised a haven for her talents, hungry enough to claw her way out of the canteen tents and into an act of her own, hungry enough to sell gossamer hopes to her starving clients with a hook at the end to always reel them back in.
But one faithful visitor, a silent young woman with a scream of red hair, has her suddenly craving again. Now Sella wonders what it is they both want from their sessions and what they are—what she is—willing to do to keep it.
