Release Date: February 9, 2011
Book: ARC through Galley Grab program

“A dark and fantastic collection of stories from the author of Tithe and The Spiderwick Chronicles.”
Ummmm…this stories totally rocked my socks off!!! I loved reading each and every single one. They all held a significance of someone getting back at someone. Basically, what goes around comes around. I loved that each story is unique. There were fairies, unicorns, etc. So much goodness.

I am hoping to see if Ms. Black will continue any of the stories into a full novel. Which anyone she picks, if she does I know for sure I will be dying to read. This a great book with strong characters and plots you will never forget.

I give it 5 BITES!
Happy Reading!
