  • Great mix of fairy tales, both original and retold

    The Fellowship of Fantasy is back with another anthology of short stories, this time exploring the classic fairy tale. There are a lot of fairy tale retellings in this one so I guess I wasn't as impressed. Don't get me wrong--I love fairy tale retellings! I figure it just turns out that some of the retellings here were too straight-forward, and didn't provide enough oomph to make them stand out. In that way, original stories still work better. That doesn't mean that there aren't some gems here though! Stories I loved: At the Corner of Elm & Main , H.L. Burke: lovely, bittersweet, and charming. Enchanted lampposts are obviously the way to go. ;) The Girl Who Talked to Birds , Kristen S. Walker: I like schoolgirl-finding-powers stories. Wake the Moon , Annie Louise Twitchell: this had a bit of a folklorish feel, which was wonderfully refreshing. Third Princess , Emily Martha Sorensen: I loved this play on the classic youngest princess always wins. There's a bit of a Howl's Moving Castle vibe to it too. A Week After Midnight , Alex McGilvery: exploring what happens after the fairy tale has been done before, but I liked the way this one went. Being Seen , Gretchen E. K. Engel: I don't know why I liked this one. I mean, stuck up Lord vs humble commoner--nothing unusual about that. I guess it's just the way everything fit together with the invisibility curse and all. How to Hide a Prince , E.J. Kitchens: this one was a little confusing at first but the reveal at the end made up for it. The Loathly Princess of Edimor , L. Palmer: Another stuck up Lord vs humble commoner, but with a proud princess that needed to be taught a lesson. Sight Howl vibe again, which is probably why I preferred it over other stories with similar characters. Stories I kinda liked: Cinders , Kendra E. Ardnek: the double twist on this Cinderella retelling was amusing. The beginning was rather ho-hum until the twist though. Steelhand , Ashley Capes: As you can tell, I kind of like "the outcast wins" stories. The Greatest Adventure , J.M. Hackman: I would have liked this better if I hadn't foretold the end. haha. Believing in Fairy Tales , Arthur Daigle: started off not quite liking this, but it kind of grows on you. There are some other stories I didn't mention here and I can't recall offhand what they were about, so it goes to say those didn't make much of an impression on me. But 12 out of 16 (I think) on the love/like list is pretty good for an anthology! Note: I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher. I was given the book with no expectation of a positive review and the review is my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
