The Asylum for Fairy Tale Creatures

The Asylum for Fairy Tale Creatures

'The Asylum for Fairy Tale Creatures' is a creepy asylum in the woods for woe-begotten folks and creatures that are the products of fairy tales. Taking the darkness of the Brothers Grimm and taking it even darker, this was an interesting look at known fairy tales.

Blood Red Riding Hood sees a wolf where her grandmother should be. Thumbeana is a doll and it's not her fault, but she should still be locked away because of the way she was made. Thread Bear is a stuffed toy that has seen sadness. There are others. All locked away so their madness can't infect the world. There are snapshot looks at Rapunzel, Beauty and Cinderella.

I wasn't sure what I was going to be reading when I requested this, but I hoped for something creepy and gothic. Sebastian Gregory's style in writing this is spot on. It's horrific, but still has the feel of classic fairy tales. I really enjoyed it.

I was given a review copy of this ebook by Carina UK and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this delightfully creepy ebook.
