I love retelling stories of fairytales, so this anthology has been a fun and enjoyable read. I wish to review the three stories I have had the chance to read so far. And I can’t wait to read more.
The first story, “The Dust Wish” by Alethea Kontis has me looking at dust bunnies in a whole new light. This was such a unique and fun story to read. I really like the relationship that was built between the prince, the boy, and the maid. And the dust bunnies were so interesting. I was very drawn in and it would be fun to read more about these characters.
The next story, “Ashes to Ashes” was a great mix of Djinn and Cinderella fairytales. Phaedra Weldon combined these two themes together very well. It was a joy to read and see where this story would go.
The next story, “Wallina” by Nikki Jefford was so interesting. I wasn’t as familiar with the fairytale that inspired this story and now, I want to read more about it. It was refreshing in a way of not thinking of how the story would be different from the original story. The main character has many adventures in this story and it had me almost biting my fingers on what the out come would be. Very entertaining and well written.
I’m looking forward to the rest of the stories in this anthology.
