Book Description

Death and Pixie Dust!

Once upon a time, a mysterious plague beset a quiet village in the woods—a plague of the walking dead. Suddenly, beloved fairy tale characters are thrown into a world of stark violence and horror: Cinderella is worked to death before the ball, Pinocchio is made from children's corpses, and Little Red Riding Hood finds more than wolves in the forest.

Surreal and full of black humor, Zombie Fairy Tales is a genre-bending narrative of a world on the brink of apocalypse, a world with no happily ever afters.

Collected here are all 12 original Zombie Fairy Tales, plus a new 13th tale exclusive to this collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a bloody time .... 3 Jan. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Where do I start to review my favourite book?

I have loved Zombie Fairy Tales by Kevin Richey since I read Zombie Cinderella almost 2 years ago. And since then the 13th of every month was my favourite date as it meant a new fairy tale was twisted. When all 12 stories where told I was left not only wanting more but a paperback copy I could hold in my hands (and love and cuddle forever!)

Well in the style of Fairy Tales Kevin Richey made my dream come true, not only was the book finally put into print but there was a 13th tale exclusively to the complete collection!
In this book all of the iconic Fairy Tale characters we know and love from our childhood are here. But they have been twisted and darkened and then twisted again. Belle is prepared to be Beast Dinner guest, only she is the dinner, Snow White finds more than little animal friends in the forest and Peter Pan's lost boys are more stolen from their beds than lost!

This book is full of black humour and gore, it will make you grin, then cringe and then start giggling! Each story sits perfectly with the last making this a complete world that is slowly being taken over by the zombie plague. I really enjoyed this element of the book that each story worked together, only here would Hansel and Gretel meet the ugly stepsisters at a hanging. Or Sleeping Beauty be at the mercy of Snow Whites Evil Queen.

If you're a big fan of Fairy Tales you will enjoy spotting little references to less well known charters that pop up, for example the boy who cried wolf may well have wished that he never went on a play date with Pinocchio!

If you're a fan of Fairy Tales you'll love this, if you're a fan of horror/zombies you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gory and Great - Highly Recommended 22 Nov. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought this on a punt for some travel time reading and am really glad I did. The premise for this book is that fairy tales all get given a horror/gore twist as a zombie-style infection starts to spread in a fairy tale land and each chapter tells the story of one of the fairy tales, from their lead character's perspective.

The great thing about the complete collection is that each story is great on it's own but there is an over-arching story and progression which links them all together. Characters turn up, get killed or are referenced in other stories which is nice and there is a clear beginning of the virus with Pinocchio and ending with Pocahontas which is great to read. The stories are given a really nice spin to them (it isn't just a straight re-telling with some zombies added in) - what Richey does to 'The Little Mermaid' in particular is great. The level of writing is superb and really gory in places with some really creepy horror suspense added in the descriptions.

I think my only negative is that I read the book a little too fast in one go - it really is a book you can enjoy by dipping in and out of chapters a lot better than trying to read it all on a plane.

Really recommended - a great find!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifically satisfying 29 Dec. 2014
By Crayola
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books I've read in 2014. Just completely unique in terms of ideas, structure and narrative voice. Richley has a wonderful way with words that instantly draws you in and can have you loathing the zombies one chapter, then heartbroken for them the next. The stories are all stand alone short tales, influenced by both Disney and traditional versions of the fairy tales, which also link up to create a full novel - its just so satisfying, especially when you spot references between the chapters. Of particular note is 'Beauty and the Beast', although 'The Little Mermaid' and 'The Little Matchstick Girl' were also wonderful, and there isn't a bad story in the book by any stretch of the imagination.
I look forward to reading ore from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant 8 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic! It takes most of the beloved fairy tales from our childhoods. Merges them, messes with them and then zombifies them.
Take the Pied Piper, after he becomes a zombie, he loses a hand and decides what better to replace his hand, than a hook. Then he goes on to have a fight with Peter Pan and Wendy.
Pinocchio is a zombie but made from the parts of other zombie children.
The little matchstick girls is an undead pyramaniac.
Prince Eric's sister is Ursula and his aunt appears to be Elisabeth Báthory.
And there's loads more. It's fantastic and I highly recommend it and I hadn't even finished it yet. It's that good
