A companion novel to A Tale Dark & Grimm, this book continues to celebrate the darkness and horror that is part of real fairy tales. This time the focus expands beyond The Brothers Grimm to also include Hans Christian Andersen and Christina Rossetti among others as inspiration. This is the story of Jack and Jill and their adventures. Yes, there is a broken crown and also a beanstalk to climb. There is also a talking frog to be kissed, a goblin market to explore, and monsters to either battle or befriend. There is plenty of blood, anger, misery, hunger and torment too. Sound like the sort of book you’d enjoy? I thought so!
