Encircled is a wonderful anthology that brings together six authors' fairytale retellings. Believe me, it's been masterfully done. Upon opening this book you'll find this quote in the Introduction: "You hold in your hands [the authors'] finished product. Encircled is the culmination of nearly two years of writing, editing, dreaming, and hard work.", to which my only thought was "I'm honored, people!". Thus, I hope the following review (more like, my thoughts on each story) does it justice.

Wrote an in depth review on my blog (http://alliemayauthor.com/2019/04/09/...), but I figured I’d give a bit about each story here.

I typically expect that one or two stories in an anthology like this won't be to my taste, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed them all! Even the retellings of fairy tales that I'm not a fan of like Snow White and The Nutcracker were fun to read because of the creative spin.

The two sci fi stories were naturally my favorites, but I also took a shine to the retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and the twist at the end.

Great anthology for fairy tale and speculative fiction fans alik

Each of these stories enchanted me in different ways. Though I had never heard/read some of the original fairy tales, that didn't stop me from enjoying them just the same.

I received this book from the authors for the purpose of review. The above is my honest opinion.
