From the publisher
Fairy tales never used to be stories meant for children only - not until the nineteenth century, when Victorian editors turned them into nursery fare. Their older versions were sensual, violent, and startling. Their heroines weren't passive girls, their princes weren't always noble and charming, and happy endings were never guaranteed in the dark of the forest.
With this series, we bring you fairy tales in all their delicious complexity, retold at novel length by masters of fantasy literature.
