[Book Review] NEVER AFTER by Laurell K. Hamilton, Yasmine Galenorn, Marjorie M. Liu, & Sharon Shinn
Beth explains why readers should grab a copy of
NEVER AFTER by Laurell K. Hamilton, Yasmine Galenorn, Marjorie M. Liu, and Sharon Shinn (Jove Books, 2009)
Remember those fairy tales you read from childhood? The stories were always about the beautiful princess needing rescue, or the princess who knows not her royal blood and returns with great gladness to her people. Well, this book doesn’t have those tales. Never After is about the princess doing the rescuing!
In these four tales you’ll see a traditional fairy tale turned on its ear, often with the princess making a wise decision on her own--no man involved! (OK, so a man is involved in the story, but she makes the decisions!) Each notable author writes a wonderful story. Some involve supernatural themes, while others go back to the times when kings and queens ruled the entire land, which means, no story is to be missed.
Enjoy this quick read today!
