Consider those much loved childhood fairytales from new, darker and deeper angles.
Enchanting, beguiling and lovingly put together these short retellings are a new direction to herd some old favourites in and grace another generation with their tales of trial, tribulation and triumph.

••• So far I have only read one story from this Anthology. I will update my review as I read more :) •••

The Variance Court by : Alexia Purdy

Far From Faerie

This seems to be a stand alone story. Hopefully it won't always be :)

Aylin is a nonmagickal girl living within a very magical world. Variance is incredibly dangerous for those without magick so she has never left her home. Her father used to go to town and trade at least once a year but he died. Should she stay safe at home? Or venture forth to find the things she needs? How will she survive without her father? Is she destined to die alone never even meeting anyone new?

Anna is just a normal girl living in the human world and trying to make a better life for herself. She is in college and trying very hard to get good grades... Too bad she just failed her Biochemistry Midterm and it looks like all her hard work has been for nothing! Why does the homeless guy near campus seem to be taking an interest in her? How can he seem to be a handsome well dressed man and a bum at almost the same time? Is she losing her mind? Or is there more to him than meets the eye? What can he possibly want with her?

***This story is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy a bit of whimsy in their modern faerie tales filled with magick and mystery :)
