Review of eBook

A collection of short fable-like stories in two books ["Long Ago" and "Far Away"], beginning with the dreamflower and loosely held together by the continuing story of the Lacewing King and the Silken Folk who serve as the guardians of the honeycomb and were the first to bring the nectar of Dream into the Worlds. But, though they are everywhere, the Silken Folk, sometimes called the Faërie, are invisible to the Sightless Folk.

Several characters appear regularly throughout the tell

This is a collection of short stories from bestselling author Joanne M. Harris and legendary artist Charles Vess. This collection is definitely worth a read. You will find the stories within reminiscent of old folk tales with a bit of a dark side. Illustrations are sprinkled throughout the book and give it a bit of an old school flare.

I want to thank NetGalley, the author and publisher for the e-ARC of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are honest, my own and left voluntarily.

I liked these short stories, of course I liked some stories more than some others. But in general and in whole the book itself I really enjoyed. I loved how the tales came off as if someone was making them up in there head and saying them out loud. I also loved how some of the stories were pretty dark. I really loved the cover of the book. The illustrations in the book were ok I guess I honestly didn't really like them but that could just be me. I want to thank netgalley and the publisher for se ...more

I cannot believe that this book is currently available to just READ on NetGalley. It's a beautiful collection of fairy tales, some relevant to an overarching narrative and others left there to make you think. Add in the beautiful illustrations drawn for the pivotal moments, and it's perfect. I'd recommend this to fans of The Starless Sea or The Invisible Life of Addie Larue.

“Dream is a river that runs to the Sea To the Sea, to the Sea Death is a country that longs for the Sun For the Sun, for the Sun.”

Lovely fairytale stories that all link up. Fast paced and a joy to read. It had an old time fairytale feel that you don't get all that often with new books. The drawings in between the pages really brought the whole thing together.

Honeycomb is a wonderfully macbre fairytale book. It's a little slow going but the dark content makes it worth the read. I highly enjoyed seeing how all these little stories fell into place within the bigger story of The Lacewing King.

this had what I loved from The Gospel of Loki, and this was a great read. The art was done beautifully and I really loved going on this story.

I got a digital ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

First, I'm looking forward to seeing a print copy because Vess's illustrations are gorgeous.

Honeycomb is a collection of what seem to be whimsical tales, some of which are about the Lacewing King and his adventures, others of which seem disconnected (but fun nonetheless). I loved "The Bookworm Princess" and the farmyard tales.

But as I read on, I realized that the book is also about growth, transformation and redemption (told

This collection of short stories gave me The Brothers Grimm and old Irish folk tale vibes. I already love old stories about the fae and so I enjoyed the stories in this collection. Like any collection there were stories I enjoyed and a few that I didn't as much. Overall I loved the old fairy tale feel of this collection and found the illustrations interesting and a nice bonus. Anyone who likes short stories about faeries or Brothers Grimm style fairy tales would enjoy this collection.
