From the Author
For John Skipp, who invited me into an anthology called Demons and inadvertently gave me the rug that pulled "The Unicorn Hunter" together.
For D.F. Warrick and Kyle S. Johnson, who invited me to write a story based on a Nick Cave song...and to my sister, Soteria, for choosing the perfect song for me.
For Brandi Hamrick, who flipped through the tiny notebook I keep in my car and asked, "What's a 'Vampire Mermaid'?"
For Jason Sizemore and Lynne M. Thomas at Apex, who were not afraid to publish a Romantic Young Adult Serial Killer Fairy Tale Retelling in a world when everyone else was.
For Eric James Stone--again and always--for unwittingly challenging me to include every single nursery rhyme and fairy tale I knew into a story, thus creating a Whole New World my brain would be happy living in forever.
And for Margo Mann Appenzeller, Casey Cothran, and Chris McCormick--because the geography of my world all started with the map we drew in high school. Arilland literally would not exist without all of us.
My hope is that Aria and Llandyr may yet still exist someday beyond these pages.

I love that this is a compilation of short stories that show us more of the world of Arilland and where the Woodcutter sisters live. I hope that more "world of Arilland" stories get published in the future while we wait for the Woodcutter sisters books to be released.
The original story of Sunday is in this book, and after reading Enchanted I can appreciate the way Ms. Kontis develops her stories and brings the world to life through little details and character development. I much prefer Sundays final story to the original short story however I loved being able to see how Sunday's story originally started.
The Cursed Prince shows us Rumbolds point of view. I loved being able to read that right after reading Sunday. The little details in the short stories made me re-read all the Woodcutter books to pick out minute details that I missed the first time reading.
To sum it up, a wonderful companion to an enchanting book series. I hope for more short stories in the future from Ms. Kontis.
Two thumbs Up and a MUST read for any fairy tail lover.
