Once upon a time, in lands far, far away, everyone lived happily ever after. Until now. If you thought you knew the fairytales well, think again. In a modern world without morals, where beauty does not always equal goodness and evil sometimes wins, the heroes of the legends learn the hard way that survival will take more than just a pretty face, and a handsome prince does not mean salvation. Ten broken fairytales that are definitely not for children’s bedtime.
Long Live the Queen – the Queen talks exclusively to C L Raven about her side of the Snow White story and why attempted murder is perfectly justified.
Midnight Kiss – Casey and Alex explore the Sleeping Castle, awakening a nightmare.
Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge – Georgie and Jazz have to prove themselves worthy of being in the Jolly Rogers. Jazz has to steal three items from the notorious Judge while Georgie must spend the night in the serial killers’ cottage.
Master of Puppets – Aidan is adopted by Mephistopheles and seeks revenge on his brothers.
Disenchanted – when Ythan is captured by the Snow Queen, Syra embarks on a treacherous quest to rescue him.
Operation: Midnight – Ella is an undercover MI5 agent, recruited to bring down the infamous terrorist, Prince Charming.
Sleeping Beauties – as a child, the Prince was read Sleeping Beauty and fell in love with the princess. When he discovers Snow White in her coffin, his fantasy becomes a disturbing reality.
Girl All the Bad Guys Want – when the Queen orders her execution, Bandit joins forces with seven vampires living in the woods.
Tempting Fate – Gypsy and Harper are abandoned in the woods. But the gingerbread house they find is more dangerous than the creatures in the dark.
Once Upon a Nightmare – the woods surrounding Red’s cottage aren’t plagued by a villager-eating wolf, but by things more twisted than any imagination.
