This is a great collection of twisted fairy tales, each story was written perfectly and spooky. I loved the stories Dresses, Three and Bluebeard’s Daughter, they were my favorites in the collection. Each story you can figure out the fairy tale it was based on and then Ms. Slatter was able to twist it to a darker place. Overall I really enjoyed reading this and would recommend this to fans of dark fairy tales.
5 out of 5 stars
A Feast of Sorrows—Angela Slatter’s first U.S. collection—features twelve of the World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award-winning Australian author’s finest, darkest fairy tales, and adds two new novellas to her marvelous cauldron of fiction. Stories peopled by women and girls—fearless, frightened, brave, bold, frail, and fantastical—who take the paths less traveled by, accept (and offer) poisoned apples, and embrace transformation in all its forms. Reminiscent of Angela Carter at her best, Slatter’s work is both timeless and fresh: fascinating new reflections from the enchanted mirrors of fairy tales and folklore.
