Hansel and Gretal (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology
4 Stars

I’ve always loved fairytales. The authors in this anthology definitely wrote their own version of this classic. There is a bit of everything in these stories so they should satisfy most readers. I prefer stories that have a twist with some horror therefore these were my favourites.

The Surface by CeeCee Elaine

This leans towards a dystopian vibe. Most of mankind has died off because of an airborne virus. Two people escape an underground bunker and return to the surface. The story has a crazy twist at the end that you never see coming.

The Reaper Within by Jess Bagnall

A boy who has been shunned his entire life by the village grows up to be a hunter. He hunts the monsters in the forest helping the doctor with his experiments. With a twist you don’t expect, it’s definitely not a happy fairytale but it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Shadows that Move by Lorah Jaiyn

Witches and curses abound in this story. What do you do when no one believes you? When you’re terrorized but end up being blamed. If the truth doesn’t flow with everyone’s beliefs, does it pass as mental illness? Read the story and decide what you believe.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have absolutely loved all the inclusions of this Anthology, Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole). Who doesn’t love enjoying the chance to take a piece of their childhood and discover a grown up way to read our favorites. I love this book as it gave me a chance to take a moment and enjoy so many twists to a classic that has always been an all time favorite of mine. I enjoy the fact that each author has such a distinct voice that comes across and makes you feel as if you’re stepping into a whole new world with each novel. This one did include some authors that I didn’t know I was missing in my life. I will now have a whole set of new authors to discover outside the anthology and that is a win win situation for all involved. I loved all of the short reads available but the ones by Lorah Jaiyn, and Jess Bagnall, so those will be the ones I have decided to start devouring their libraries first. I look forward to seeing if this is the beginning of a set of anthologies that will make our old fairytale favorites come to life for us again. Happy reading!

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology

4-Stars

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology was full of interesting stories providing a retelling of the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. Each story had a different twist and I enjoyed how the two were depicted differently. The stories include romance, fantasy, and horror versions. A few easily caught my attention while some took me a couple of pages. My favorite story in the anthology is “The Dragon and The Phoenix” by Rachel Pudsey. I enjoyed the characters in this short story and also the creativity. This book was enjoyable and entertaining. I recommend it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) is an anthology of brilliant stories by a variety of fantastic authors. They have each taken on the task to create their own version of the classic tale Hansel and Gretel and the result is a mix of original retellings.
Anthologies have never been my favourite style of book to read but it is ones like this that is slowly changing my mind. I enjoyed each and every one of these stories – they were all so different from each other but all so exciting. The books touched on a range of different topics and straddled the line of dark writing so well.
Each book had something about it that made me enjoy it. There was a different element that caught my attention. The one thing I can say that all the books had was a well written story with some complex and interesting characters. This is definitely an anthology I would recommend as well as 7 authors to discover.

5 out of 5 stars

This is a wonderful anthology that has different authors retelling the story of Hansel and Gretel. I loved reading every one of the stories. The authors have done an amazing job of making the characters in each story come alive. I felt like I was right there with them. The stories included deception, danger, and some gave me a scare. I love anthologies because I get to read stories by authors that I am familiar with as well as being introduced to new authors as well. The stories pulled me in and I didn’t want to put them down until I had read the final page. These stories also have emotional and romantic moments. I found this group of stories to be entertaining and intriguing. There were times when I would say to myself “that didn’t just happen, did it?” The authors have done an amazing job of writing their version of Hansel and Gretel. I would highly recommend reading these stories.

I loved this anthology. This is a collection of great stories by some awesome authors who have their own take of what Hansel and Gretel should be. Each story is unique and could just scare the pants off you. They are engaging and the twists and turns will keep you turning pages. The stories come alive with each of the characters which I loved. Some of these authors are new to me and some are among my favorites. I know you will find a favorite just like I have. Will you take a chance Down the Rabbit Hole?

Red Riding Hood (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology – Review by Karyn Taylor

Red Riding HoodRed Riding Hood by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Red Riding Hood (Down The Rabbit Hole) is an anthology of 12 different authors writing their version of Red Riding Hood. It covers several different genre’s including romance, erotica and horror. I am not going to review all of the stories but have chosen my 2 favourites to talk about. They are Ruby by Autumn Sand and Cloaked by Lia Fairchild.
In Ruby by Autumn Sand, Ruby is a writer who is going through a divorce and is recovering from breast cancer. Her boss sends her to interview Count Edric Moreau of Paris who is known as the Wolf of Europe. Edric has taken over as the head of Moreau International and is known for seducing other millionaires and billionaires wives.
The chemistry between the 2 is instant but Ruby is determined that she will not fall for his charms. Should she be afraid of the big bad wolf?
I really enjoyed this story. In true Autumn Sand’s style it is erotic and titillating.
In Cloaked by Lia Fairchild, Eva Chacon has been searching for her grandfather for 6 years. Most of her family had been wiped out when a war with another crime family got heated. While working as a nurse she thinks she has found him. As she tries to get to know him she also comes into contact with Luke. Is Luke all he seems?
This story is quite dramatic and suspenseful and will keep you glued. Luckily it’s not a very long story and you can devour it all in one sitting. It was the first time I had read work by this author and this little tidbit has made me want more.
