TAKE MY MONSTERS C. Gockel
I have always loved the story of Tam Lin having read it in different versions over the years. What Ms. Gockel did with her telling was unique and very well told. To use the history of Rome in Scotland was a great way to tie in reality to a story about the Fae. She was also very good about including some of the Scandinavian ties with the Norse mythology. Excellent rendition of the Tam Lin story. If you have read other versions or not, you will enjoy her story.
THE RUINS OF OZ Alexia Purdy
I have read a few different versions of the story of Oz including Baum’s original and “Wicked”. There are other stories that revolve around the Emerald City but this one is a much darker one that any of those. To see that Oz is in ruins is very sad. Thea falls through a mirror to find herself in Oz and goes on to find her own tale. I will not tell you any more because it will spoil the story for you. Well worth the read if you like stories about Oz.
WEST OF THE MOON Annie Bellet
A very interesting story that tells how much can be accomplished by love, especially love of family. It is very interesting on how Lina goes about to save her twin brother. I really enjoyed this story and how a human can outwit those who consider themselves to be smarter.
A BELL IN THE NIGHT Evelyn Snow
This story is based on Snow White but it really takes off in a different direction. The only part that relates to Snow White was Stevie finding a boy asleep in a sealed box. This was not a very long story but it really kept me intrigued and makes me want to know a lot more about Stevie, Jack, JD and the rest. I am going to be on the look out for her series when it comes out because if it is as good as this short clip, it will be well worth the read.
Even thought these aren't the types of books I usually read this was a great collection.

I have a book from this author on my TBR list, so this story was a good opportunity to check out if I should move it further up the list. And I definitely will.
This was so far the best story of the anthology. Maybe because I didn't know the fairy tale it was based upon, maybe because it was a new turn with it playing in the Roman Empire, although this idea didn't convince me at first. But it is a heart gripping story of trust and love.
WEST OF THE MOON by Annie Bellet
I have heard but not read anything of Annie Bellet before but this story was well written, so I will have a look for more.
A BELL IN THE NIGHT by Evelyn Snow
Interesting story, didn't get a lot reference to a Grimm fairytale but the setup was interesting. Might read more about the characters introduced.
MISTRESS BOOTSIE by Anthea Sharp
The miller and the cat, both female, nice. The story is very similar to the original fairytale except for the reverse genders. I liked the idea of the cat being a descendent of a fay cat hence the ability to talk.
THE RUINS OF OZ by Alexia Purdy
Interesting approach to the Wizard of Oz story. Will have to check out full novels as this one was too short.
A TOUCH OF GOLD by Rachel Morgan
Nice story with one of my favourite characters from the Creepy Hollows books. The end is a bit rushed but leaves me with wanting to dive into that universe again.
MAGIC AND MACHINERY by Jamie Ferguson
Not bad but not remarkable. Couldn't remember anything when sitting down for reviewing.
