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.

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.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit I am not a fan of zombies. I generally avoid rotting corpse literature. But when this title showed up on my suggestions list, I decided I should try something new. I fully expected a corny, clichéd zombie horror complete with cravings for brains (albeit fairytale brains in this case) and over-the-top gore. To my absolute surprise, however, I ended up devouring this book (no pun intended) and thoroughly enjoying the taste. Page one put a strangle hold on me (why the heck is Geppetto stalking around the graveyard?) and it didn't let go until the very end.

Zombie Fairy Tales does have its gore and is certainly not for the faint-of-heart. There is a lot here to make you shiver with disgust and repugnance (think reanimated babies). Despite the physical horror Richey invokes, I found the emotional ride equally, if not more, monstrous. Simply put, a large amount of the general public are just plain loathsome. Every man for himself must have been the mantra of this fantasy world. I often found myself rooting for the zombies. And these zombies are not mindless drifters; they remember who was naughty. I suppose the moral of the story is to treat everyone with dignity and respect else they turn into a zombie and exact revenge.

Each chapter of the book can be read independently as its own story. However, each story gives a subtle nod to the previous one and they all ultimately tie together. I really enjoyed encountering characters from previous stories/chapters in other stories/chapters. For example, Hansel and Gretel are skulking around while the Little Match Girl is struggling to survive her story. It was like a gory game of seek and find.

I never thought I'd be showering praise on a zombie book.

I love fairy tales so the title immediately caught my attention. I thought why not, this might be interesting. I started reading and WOW.
This collection of tales take the original tales we all know and put a wonderful twist to them. Yes the stories are dark and grim (haha pun intended) but fascinating to read. I couldn't stop reading I enjoyed them so much.
The first tale starts with the creation of Pinocchio and introduces the idea that a plague has afflicted the town where Geppetto lives. And so it begins...... The following tales focus on other characters, such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Ariel, but they all tie in together as the stories unfold. Just amazing.
This fairy tale world is filled with violence and gore; the main characters struggle to survive and overcome as their stories take grisly twists to the originals. While filled with the horrors of zombies the stories still contain bits of whimsy, yearning, and the fulfillment of dreams.
Kudos to the author. What an amazing imagination!! I loved all the little nods to peripheral characters (JH and the crab) and the creative way that some of the characters came to be who they were (Hook and the huntsman/wolves). While staying close to the original stories, he truly made-or should I say remade-them his own. I highly recommend this collection to anyone who loves fairy tales.
