After a slow start, it began to unfold rapidly, picking up pace and building tension magnificently. I spent the last half of the book on the edge of my seat, desperate to find out what would happen next.

There were predictable moments, sure, but there was always a looming dread of who was going to be next, and how it would happen

It was a fantastic, fast paced, supernatural thriller packed with mystery & tension in spades once it got going! 🖤

Not sure I like the new audible layout buy hey-ho 😒

I'm definitely enjoying this book more than I thought I would, and I feel bad for judging it so harshly at the beginning (even if it was taking its sweet time!) ☺️

Its turned into a fast paced, action packed, haunting supernatural mystery thriller, and I'm loving it!

So it looks like I put it down last time just as the story was about to pick up the pace, because oh my days has a lot suddenly happened!

Its still easy to keep up with, and the characters are all fascinating in their own ways! My only issue with the #AudioBook is that the narrator doesn't seem to have much range so most of the characters sound the same (men and women alike).

Really looking forward to the rest now 😊

So I figured I might as well keep my #TBRCleanup going for the variety, alongside my #LeastRated 😊

Out of the 10 left I think I'll try to finish the tagged book first, because I was reading it the most recently, then I think I'll try The Fire Queen because it's been half finished for the longest...

But it's me so I'll probably read something entirely different just because I can 😅

There was a brilliant variety of stories in this collection - some better than others, but that was to be expected. I liked how some spun well known (and some lesser known) tales into something new, and how some took familiar fairytale elements and create something new and interesting.

I look forward to reading the other collections in the series.

The Final Straw - I was excited to see a retelling of the Rumpelstiltskin, because it doesn't seem to be very popular. It kept a lot of the traditional elements, but made the heroine less pathetic. Really loved this one.

The Unicorn Hunter - I'm not crying, you're crying! A Snow White retelling with demons and unicorns and a happy/sad ending. If that's not enough, then nothing is 😅

Still Red - this one gets a post of its own... not because it's good, but because I'm not sure a story has ever confused me so much before in my life.

Supposedly a retelling of Little Rsed Riding Hood, I can say I recognised any of the original story except a couple of names (maybe?). It was more if a delusional fever dream, and I've read it a couple of times now and if anything that made it worse.

2 more to go! 😊

The Morrigan - more of a novella than a short story, but with good characters, a few twists and turns to keep it interesting, and consistency! Really enjoyed this and could easily see it becoming a series (or a longer book at least) 💚
Alice - Thought I was reading a short story and it turns out its an into to a book. That annoys me. I'm supposed to be reading short stories, not book teasers. Not bad, but frustratingly unfinished 😑

This one was... good?

The story line was interesting and could have been excellent, but it was rushed and nothing was explained - everything just kind of happened 😑

It was detailed and the mostly black and white theme to it worked well, but it was graphic and crude for the sake of it. I have no issues with nudity and gore in books where it adds something, but in this case most of it added nothing 😬

So just as I finished the book I got called into work 😫
It was excellent but it left me with so many questions.... ok so maybe that's a good thing and a huge part of the reason why I've already ordered the 2nd volume 😂

The cast of characters is diverse and lovable, the art work is stunning and the scenes are perfectly fitted to the story.

I devoured this book and cant wait for more!
