Two and Twenty Dark Tales- Edited by Georgia McBride and Michelle Zink

Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes

I was raised on nursery rhymes so when I saw that there was an anthology of stories based on Mother Goose I practically lost my mind. Not only does Two and Twenty Dark Tales have a great premise, there are so many amazing contributing writers who’s work I already love—-Gretchen McNeil, Lisa Mantchev, Karen Mahoney to name a few. The anthology is full of creepy unsettling stories, dark imaginings and disturbing endings. You will never look at nursery rhymes the same way again after reading this, nor should you want to. There’s something particularly Grimm (pun intended) about this collection; it’s closer to what original fairy tales and nursery rhymes were intended to do—-to warn and ward the dark things in the world. It is an anthology I cannot wait to have on my shelves!

Overall: A+

Two and Twenty Dark Tales is due out from Month9Books on October 16th. Pre-order your copy here.
