    Creepy and Beautiful

    This collection of short, folk-tale flavoured horror stories is an enjoyable read for folktale and horror enthusiasts alike. Carroll’s stories allude to and invert classic fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard and The Velvet Ribbon, while her illustrations set an eerie atmosphere in greys, blues and reds. “The Nesting Place” twists together the best parts of the wicked-stepmother tale with a fresh take on the monster-in-the-woods/monster-within duality to stand out for me as Carroll’s creepiest story.

    Stunning illustrations and an eerie atmosphere

    Through the Woods was absolutely gorgeous, and somehow I ended up with a black and white e-book version instead of physical copy. The illustrations created a stunningly eerie atmosphere but I felt like some of the stories lacked a punch or climax. Regardless, I would be incredibly happy to add this book to my shelves so I can treat myself to Carroll's illustrations whenever I want.

    Horrifically good!

    I loved each and every page of this book. It's visually stunning and the stories--in the truest most terrifying sense of the word--will haunt you. I've never read anything like this one, and I'm now telling everyone I know to read it. I especially loved the fact that Carroll doesn't at all feel the need to resolve her horror stories; because really, there are no satisfying explanations or resolutions to real life horrors.
