Supposedly written by cult fantasy author Althea Prosperpine, this collage of dark fairy tales is genuinely mysterious and frightening. Actually written by Melissa Albert, these 12 tales affect a variety of moods, most of them dark. Readers of the first two novels will notice various "Easter eggs" and call-backs. Newcomers are more than welcome, though. Not every tale hits the mark, but each delivers a dose of creepy enchantment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
