Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.
to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and
hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young
mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a
lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.
by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author
Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short
stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.
for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to
lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous
magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.
collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them
lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page,
culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail
as the stories themselves. @goodreads
My October 2017 Fairyloot! I added a link below this picture if you want to go see close-ups of the goodies =) ♥
stories were awesome. Well, one that I read when it was free on Tor I
only gave 3 stars because of the hunting but other than that, they were
pretty dark and cool!
I'm just going to add pictures of the
postcards I got in my Fairyloot box because these are the same pictures
they have after the story has been told. And let me tell you, all of
these pictures on the postcards and through-out the book are amaze
AYAMA AND THE THORN WOOD
This one is my favorite. It's a telling of the not beauty and the beast =) It's wicked and cool!
THE TOO- CLEVER FOX
is the one with too much animal killing. I gave it three stars in my
original review because it had some tales within tales
THE WITCH OF DUVA
This one is really dark and cool. The woodsman who has a secret. His daughter who befriends a witch and some ewww involved!
This one is about a girl too beautiful to even behold. A bunch of idiots. And a river =)
THE SOLDIER PRINCE
one is another take on the Nutcracker. Like I have said before, I have
not read the original Nutcracker but this one is really good as well.
WHEN WATER SANG FIRE
This one is about some mermaids.
Don't y'all love my short little explanations? =D
loved the book, it's absolutely beautiful inside and out. The pages are
stunning and each page is colored as well. I would recommend to anyone
that love the author and fairy tales, myths and folklore!
