Sinister storytelling has never been so delightful!

Detailed with alluring beauty, elegant imagination, and wicked humor, ‘Frightful Fairy Tales’ unleashes ghastly mortals from the dark closet into your subconscious.

“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.”
