Shattered: Broken Fairy Tales

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Once upon a time, stories ended happily ever after. Or did they? What if the magic mirror couldn't decide on the fairest of them all? What if Beauty's kiss didn't break the curse? What if choosing a bride based on her shoe size was a bad idea?

Shattered: Broken Fairy Tales is a collection of three short stories that take a turn into the dark forest instead of out of it.

Review by: Lisa Lawler on Aug. 26, 2012 :
Fabulous storytelling, scenes that come to life, protagonist's plights full of conflict - that's what you'll find in this collection of three short stories.

Based on fairytales of yesteryear, we get a glimpse into what COULD have happened after the Happily Ever After... and it might not have been so happy, which is in keeping with the traditional fairtytales. The good guy does not always win.

The last story in particular is a fantastic re-imagining of how one fairytale could have led directly into another fairytale (but I won't say any more because I don't want to spoil the surprise).

Well worth reading.
