 This book is wonderful. Love, romance, lust, violence, horror, betrayal, mysticism, seduction, revenge, angst, twisted, wicked and jaw dropping. All of which describes the lovely Dame Darcy’s illustration and writing style. If you are into all of the above with a Victorian undertone you will love this book . . . Bravo!

If you are a Meat Cake fan, then you will love this book. It has six original, “frightful” fairytales that are very much in line with the rest of Dame Darcy’s work. If you are not familiar with Dame Darcy’s work, but love traditional Grimm-like fairytales (a little disturbing, violent, and full of Gothic/Victorian charm) you will also enjoy this.

Dame Darcy is the coolest illustrator and comic book artist working today, period. I’m so glad she’s branching out into book-sized books. This one makes a great gift for your favorite goth gal.

“Never have I read a fairytale as grim and delightfully horrific as those in Dame Darcy’s Frightful Fairytales. Beautiful in their simplicity, they read like any traditional child’s fairytale. However, the nine fables included in this book are far from childish. They’re stories of innocence and romance told amidst a world of supernatural brutality… Dame Darcy’s playful and tongue-in-cheek prose will have you laughing one moment, then gasping in horror the next.

Each story is short and easy to read, ideal for anyone looking to fill a spare fifteen minutes. What really makes the book come alive though are Dame Darcy’s illustrations. Fans of her other work will immediately recognize her gothic Victorianesque style, and even those who aren’t will be enthralled by the originality of her artwork.”

Be warned though, these tales are not for the faint-of-heart – some gruesome things do happen. The book is best read when you are alone in the house on a rainy day or up late-night by the fire.
