Book Description

Death and Pixie Dust!

Once upon a time, a mysterious plague beset a quiet village in the woods—a plague of the walking dead. Suddenly, beloved fairy tale characters are thrown into a world of stark violence and horror: Cinderella is worked to death before the ball, Pinocchio is made from children's corpses, and Little Red Riding Hood finds more than wolves in the forest.

Surreal and full of black humor, Zombie Fairy Tales is a genre-bending narrative of a world on the brink of apocalypse, a world with no happily ever afters.

Collected here are all 12 original Zombie Fairy Tales, plus a new 13th tale exclusive to this collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Pieces April 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am thoroughly happy I bought the complete collection. I had considered only purchasing the Red Riding Hood one because it's my favorite fairytale but decided to buy the complete collection and WOW. These stories are twisted and delightful. It is amazing how many of the classic stories from my childhood got twisted on their heads. Whenever I finished reading one story I could not stop and just had to move onto the next to see what was going to happen. One thing I found wonderful that there was no magic whatsoever, instead everything happened due to a series of events involving the characters and the plague. Another is that characters from other stories make an appearance and you have that moment of realization on who they are. These stories get very dark and gruesome, which I absolutely loved about it. When I was reading a certain story within the collection I was having lunch at the time and this is the first time I had issues keeping my food down from something I read, which is a difficult thing to accomplish because I'm a criminal justice major, I read and see all sorts of disturbing stories and such and had no issues before during meal times, but some of the scenes in these stories....nothing compares to the twisted gruesomeness of some scenes, in my book a couple of specific ones ((in the two Cinderella stories and Red Riding Hood)).I only had one small issue and it was the placement of everything, because its hard to picture Sleepy Hollow as part of these kingdoms, but that is just a minor detail. I do not recommend this book for people who are easily disturbed, grossed out, and especially not children. However if you love zombies, gore, humor, revenge, and twisted stories, this is PERFECT for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Twisted March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Kevin Richey has done an excellent job of corrupting fairy tales that we have loved as children into something that will thrill us as adults. This is the entire collection of his Zombie Fairy Tales woven from tales such as Cinderella, Pinocchio, The Little Mermaid, and The Little Match Girl just to name a few.

All of the tales can be enjoyed separately or read in succession. Each one has something different to offer but all are well written and unique. They definitely keep your attention from start to finish.

If you love a good horror story, especially the zombie genre, then you should pick up this collection. All of the stories within are great reads, but due to the ick factor and violence of some of them I would say these are definitely not for kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars They are NOT like the funny July 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If there were more stars, it would get them all :D
Beware though, it can get rough, Cinderella was definitely hard to get through. They are NOT like the funny, slightly gross kind of stories.
pinnochio is made up of body parts stolen from the graves.....etc.
But I am loving them!!! There is a morality to them!! Karma, the villans get what they deserve. You find yourself smiling and going YES!!! :)
I couldn't put it down!! Get the collection, each story incorporated the ones before....even foreshadowing ones to come. Wish there were more now :) Happy reading!! <3

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read! January 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So glad I waited to purchase the complete set. I am thoroughly enjoying reading all of the stories back to back. Of course, I've enjoyed some more than others, but overall I have enjoyed each tale. I am glad that the author did not hold back on the zombie gore. I like that the zombies still had some mental capacity of who they were, but were no longer human and totally gave in to their new desire, their unquenchable thirst for human flesh! I also like that the characters all tie into each tale to various degrees, without taking away from the main characters storyline. I hope the author tackles new tales with more fairy tale characters. If you are not too nit-picky and critical, and like a humorous, adventurous, zombie tale full of gore, think you will enjoy this read tremendously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once Upon A Time, WTF style… November 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun, gory, gruesome, and absolutely engaging retelling of classic fairy tales if all the stories were inhabited by the walking dead. I had no idea what to expect when I bought this, but I've been having a blast reading it. The Peter Pan retelling may be my favorite… poignant and kinda horrible at the same time. The only reason this has four instead of five stars for me were a few instances of editing issues (present tense in the middle of past tense) that jarred me out of the stories, and when the overall concept and writing is so good, the editing needs to match it. Can't wait to read whatever the author has coming out next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Written June 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book expecting the stories to be one shot, probably kinda crappy but entertaining, retellings of the original fairy tales, just with zombies. What I have gotten is a series of well written interlocking stories in a much darker world where all the fairy tale worlds are one. Well worth the money.
