“A fantastic collection of twisted faerie tales. Each author brings their own talent and spin on their stories. Some are based on tales well known, others are original. But all of them were entertaining, and enjoyable. I highly recommend Once Upon A Curse: 17 Dark Faerie Tales to those who love the ‘dark and twisty.’”—Amazon reviewer
