Young Blood was creepy and whimsical at the same time. It was short and straight to the point, and very well written.
Nova and Ember:
Nova and Ember was slightly confusing, and had a bit of a slow start, but turned in to an intriguingly creepy tale with a though provoking ending.
Inheritance was very well written and painted an elegantly creepy picture as the tale went on. It was quite suspenseful, and had an interesting twist. It had a lot of depth and was creepy enough to give me goosebumps as I read.
Twice-Made Vows is incredibly well written. It made me feel like I read an entire book. It had passion, murder, and intrigue! It was suspenseful and had an awesome, horrific ending!
The Snow Bride:
The Snow Bride was a little off for me. It was too short and a little confusing. It seems like it would have fit better in a longer story, or with a little background or explanation of the types of characters it held. The saving grace for me was the ending and the fact that it felt like it combined aspects of Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd, and The Thénardiers from Les Miserables. That story twist saved it for me.
The Life & Death of Cora Svanros:
This one was really well written. It did have a few confusing aspects, but the story was deep and suspenseful. It had such an interesting twist and I felt like it could have been expanded on and made in to a book!
The Forbidden Mirror:
This is one of my favorites! It reminds me of the story of Queen Ravenna and her sister in The Huntsman: Winter's War. It had a lot of depth and development for its length, and it was creepy, intriguing, had a nice twist, and a fairy tale type lesson attached.
Wow! Selkie Cove was alluring, intriguing, and breathtaking! I really enjoyed the depth of the writing, the plot content, and the story twist!
Unfortunately, this one was not one of my favorites. The writing was done well, I just wasn't too entertained by the story. It seemed to have a fairy tale feel and story moral, I just didn't get in to it like some of the others.
I think with any anthology there will always be one or two stories that just don't strike a cord with a reader. This is one of them. I wasn't a fan of the present tense of the story and I just didn't understand it. The author did well with descriptiveness and intrigue, but it just fell short for me.
Maria Morevna and the Deathless One:
Maria Morevna and the Deathless One was an intriguing tale full of Russian folklore and mystery. It had depth and dimension, intrigue and power. It was very well written and kept me wanting more!
The Falling Angels of Fifty-Six:
This one sure did pack a punch! It was a real page turner. I loved the world building that was done and the unique plot and twists. This one could definitely be expanded on for a full book. It had real depth and a thought provoking ending!
I am honestly trying to figure out what I read with this one. I hate to say this, but it made absolutely no sense to me, and half the time I could not tell if the narrator was talking to another character or narrating the story. I didn't understand what the story was about and just felt confused the entire time...
Through the Gates of Hell:
I LOVED this one! It was deep, dark, and gritty! This plot would be awesome as a full book. The Nameless One was well developed for his type of character and his journey and struggle were horrifying and though provoking. Bravo to the author on this one! This one was my favorite!
Thank you to OWS Ink for providing me with this free e-ARC in exchange for my honest review, and as part of the blog tour!
