    1. I love anthologies, but I ve learned to expect that not all the stories in it are going to appeal to me Well, this anthology threw that assumption out the window There are nine very different stories and each one of them, in my opinion, is a winner Who knew that one minute I d be reading a retelling and a very naughty one at that of Jack and the Beanstalk and then the next I was in ancient Japan s era of the Samurai and sexy ooh ya What s really amazing is that they actually go together very wel [...]

    2. I realize to my chagrin that I never reviewed this collection Bad, bad reader So here goes Anthologies are tricky to review since it s impossible to like all of the stories equally There are a couple of stories here I would have given 3 2 and a couple would receive 5 s if they were standalone, so I ve taken the average for the whole.EM doesn t have an entry herself in this set but she does a fabulous job as editor, a harder prospect than one might imagine Themed anthologies can be deadly boring, [...]

    3. It s always hard to rate an anthology because the writing skill and enjoyment potential is different for each story, but here the stories are of uniformly high quality All of the stories are cleverly fleshed out, using the original tale as a skeleton and branching out into new and imaginative territory My favorite story has to be Ashes and Crystal, because who would have thought of the poor prince with a really large slipper because the disappearing beauty is really a guy I also loved Jack and t [...]

    4. I m a big fantasy fan and I love inverted fairy stories so this anthology of short stories all of which take an established fairy story or ideas from fairy stories and turns it around into a m m story seemed just the thing for me Surprisingly for an anthology, all the stories were well written with clever plots and interesting characters In fact, it s been quite difficult for me to single out one or two stories to highlight as my favourites.Swan Made by Mina Kelly caught my interest because its [...]

    5. Some of these tales are wicked and laugh at loud funny To be honest though, I was expecting something darker and edgier from the description, but really most of these tales are of Disney style sweet fairytales with sex scenes thrown in There s a lot of true love always instantaneous and a lot of rejecting the princess you re supposed to marry for the handsome woodcutter not really my thing.But it was worth it for the Hansel and Gretel parody and Jack and the Beanstalk was brilliant as well incr [...]

    6. I really enjoyed every story in this anthology, but my favorites were the Merman story, the Cinderella story, and Hansel Gretel Overall, this collection was fantastic Some of the stories were humorous, some very sexy, and all had wonderful happy endings I ve read a lot of anthologies, and usually there are at least a couple stories within that are not so great, but I can honestly say that I loved all of these.

    7. Way too campy for my tasteThese stories focus on telling that is, moving the plot along than showing So they re accurate reproductions of fairytales, sure, but not great stories in their own right, at least in my opinion Each one has a plot that closely follows a fairy tale and at least one sex scene, usually with very little emotional or character buildup I think some people will love them, but they re not my cup of tea at all I DNFed a few of them and skimmed most of the others.

    8. As soon as I discovered there was an anthology of m m fairy tale stories I knew I would love it And I did Some of the stories seemed successful than others, which is to be expected with anthologies, but overall they came together to make a wonderfully cohesive book.Lots of fun, and I m sure I ll re read several of the stories in the future I loved, LOVED Ashes and Crystal and The Merman s Tail Jack and the Peenstalk cracked me up The rest were okay The swan one was just weird.

    9. This is an anthology of reworked fairy tales which I generally enjoy There are nine fairy tales by nine authors Maybe I ll quickly go through them Time killer here.1 Jack and the Peenstalk by Clancy Nacht Jack is a size queen who finally gets his wish It was quite humourous and set in current times with reference to the US mortgage crisis, the crappy economy and Jack having a degree in Philosophy which entitled him to work at Starbucks.2 The Rebelliously Single Prince by Leonore Black I have no [...]

    10. Won t go into a great deal of detail about this, except to say that for a fairy tale anthology it didn t quite live up to my hopes.The stories and my ratings Jack and the Peenstalk by Clancy Nacht 1 starThe Rebelliously Single Prince by Lenore Black 3 starsCry Wolf by Mercy Loomis 4 starsKintaro by S.J Frost 3 starsAshes and Crystal by Jason Rubis 2 starsHandsome and Grateful by Kilt Kilpatrick 1 starSwan Made by Mina Kelly 2 starsKing s Honor by JL Merrow 4 starsThe Merman s Tail by Jay Di Meo [...]

    11. I actually read part of this when it came out, since long time writing pal what s the right word for that, anyhow Mina Kelly is in it I loved what I read, so I don t know why I stopped I actually went back and read it all over again this weekend so I could see how it all worked together and was very pleased It s got something for everyone funny, sad, intense, absurd, and all the places in between, and has some of the most imaginative tellings of these particular tales I think you re likely to fi [...]

    12. This is a fantastic book in every sense of the word, edited by the renowned author E.M Lynley Clancy Nacht tells of a giant peenstalk which leads into the sky and the land of a lonely giant Will Jack give up everything to return to him Lenore Black talks of a prince in love with a swan who comes as a handsome man into his room at night Mercy Loomis weaves the tale of a pukha, a werewolf who seduces a shepherd boy S J Frost tells of a young Japanese warrior who bows to beauty Jason Rubis gives us [...]

    13. 3.5 starsNine short stories, most of them a retelling of a classic fairy tale, all written by new to me authors I enjoyed them all, some than the others My favorite was Swan made by Mina Kelly, which was a bit darker than the rest.Kintaro by S.J Frost was also different, I don t know whether is based in some specific tale since I m not familiar with Japanese culture but it had Samurais Jack and the peenstalk by Clancy Nacht was really funny and Handsome and Grateful was very sexy and had both m [...]

    14. I would have to give this at least a four just for the first story, Jack and the Peenstalk, which made me laugh out loud It was ridiculous, sarcastic and so funny, and I drove people sorry, MM crazy repeating it The rest of the anthology was hit or miss I did love the story of Ashes, a Cinderfella tale, but others really didn t like The Handsome and Grateful Hansel and Gretel left me cold, as did the Japanese samuri Others, such as the Merman, were okay, but slow Cry Wolf, a shifter tale, was pr [...]

    15. Jack and the Peenstalk by Clancy Nacht 3 starsThe Rebelliously Single Prince by Lenore Black 3 starsCry Wolf by Mercy Loomis 3 starsKintaro by S.J Frost 3 starsAshes and Crystal by Jason Rubis 3 stars Handsome and Grateful by Kilt Kilpatrick 2.5 starsSwan Made by Mina Kelly 4 starsKing s Honor by JL Merrow 4 starsThe Merman s Tail by Jay Di Meo 5 stars

    16. I enjoyed the collection of stories Some than others, as is usually the case with anthologies, but the mixture was very well chosen and I didn t have trouble finishing any of the stories.

    17. I found this Japanese fairy tale interesting and unique I like how we see how things end up in the future.

    18. I know some were meant to be funny, but would help if they actually were funny and not just badly written I mean, seriously those were the best stories they could come up with meh.
