First impression: In the mood for something dark

Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments dark and light by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from beneath the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.
From the gentle tones of a storyteller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with...or to fear.

Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.

“A clear division between good and evil, right and wrong, would simplify everything, but life was rarely simple.”  

As much as I hate to admit it, I haven't read a Melissa Marr book. I have heard countless amazing things about her Wicked Lovely series, so I was finally excited to read some of her work.

All though short stories are not a part of my usual reading material, sometimes I am just in the mood for one. I can get a quick story in here and there throughout the day. However this was not the case with Faery Tales and Nightmares. I wanted to completely devour the book whole. Each story was just as amazing as the last. Every character was just as good if not better as one from a previous story. Although I wasn't familiar with the characters that made a return from the the Wicked Lovely, I enjoyed getting aquainted with them.

Melissa Marr's wirting style and story-telling made this book an enchanting read. I can definitely say she has made a fan in me! Light a candle, dim the lights, curl up on the couch and lose yourself in this magical book!

Last impression: A pleasant surprise!

  1. I read Graveminder and really enjoyed it. Though I don't usually make time for short stories, I might make an exception for this one.
