A collection of twisted fairy tales

Little Red Riding Hood finally takes her life into a direction which suits her, but not so much her friends, nor the wolf.

The miller’s daughter tries to strike a deal with Rumpelstiltskin, but forgets one detail.

Snow White is as black as night.

And Cinderella cleans house in a most definite way.

If you like to read stories in which the twists keep you on the edge of your seat and heroines get what they deserve, you might just like this anthology.

And here is my humble opinion:

“Red Gone Bad” by Lucy Pireel is a great selection of short fairy tale stories, some modernised or updated, others twisted and altered in original ways. With these changes the book makes for thought-provoking and also very entertaining reading.
My favourite is probably the ending in Cinderella. Lucy’s characters are more believable without straying too far from fantasy and fairy tale territory. There may be mobile phones in Little Red Riding Hood but there is also the wolf from the original.
Cleverly put together and well written this is certainly worth your time.
