Free read Frozen Fairy Tales

Winter is not coming Winter is here As uniue and beautifully formed as a snowflake each of these fifteen stories spins a brand new tale or offers a fresh take on an old favorite like Jack Frost The Snow ueen or The Frog King From a drafty castle to a blustery Japanese village from a snow packed road to the cozy hearth of a farmhouse from an empty coffee house in Buffalo New York to a cold night outsi. Until the day they died late at night when the winds moaned they would swear they heard a voice outside singing lullabies And once in a while travelers through the region would stop at the village and speak about a moving light in the snow that guided them to safety in a storm To them the light appeared to be a woman and two small boys glowing with a shine as beautiful and serene as the moon Winter is the proper season to curl up with a book while snow is falling silently outside the window With a soft caramel light to aid our eyes and ideally a cat curled by our feet reading stories that remind us of the beauty and harshness of a season that is strangely beautiful and hauntingly attractive This collection is not excellent but is satisfying enough to accompany a cozy winter evening The Stolen Heart by Christina Ruth Johnson The Summer princess travels to the realm of the Winter King to save her father A tender tale of persistence and love Faithful Henry by Steven Grimm This is a version of The Princess and the Frog set in the Dark Ages flavoured with pseudo feminist themes ill attempts to appear funny and with a disrespectful portrayal of the Christian Faith When I respect someone s religious beliefs I expect the others to do the same Grimm should understand that mocking a specific religion doesn t make him cool or superior It makes him appear as stupid as he probably is And yes this was an exasperated rant I won t respect anyone that doesn t respect all beliefs Excuse me The Ice Fisher by J Patrick Pazdziora A young fisherman tries to avoid temptations Very poetic and atmospheric Buffalo Wings by Lissa Marie Redmond Winter shows his hardest side in Buffalo a few days before the Winter Solstice A story whose roots can be traced in the Celtic and Gaelic Mythology with a fascinating setting An adventurous tale but again the weak attempts to create a humorous read ruined everything No surprise reallyeverything the protagonist is an idiot and the dialogue comes straightly from a teen horror film And what s the need for the main character to say that he watches Game of Thrones for the nudity Best be careful when you are a nobody writer and refer to George RR MartinRidiculous Cold Bites by Tina Anton A lovely winter tale about kindness and honesty Death in Winter by Lissa Sloan A battle between a mother and Death A haunting Gothic tale Simon the Cold by Charity Tahmaseb A bookish girl and a strange man in a fight to save the world The Light of the Moon the Strength of the Storm the Warmth of the Sun by Aimee Ogden A young woman begins an impossible journey This story echoes a hundred similar myths from all over the world A Heart of Winter by Anna Salonen A young boy begins an impossible journey to save his sister A lovely heartfelt story Haunting and dark like the Finnish forests Happily Ever After by Amanda Bergloff A story of two brave children and a winter witch where each character leads to the next step and the happily ever after takes too long I couldn t really see the point of this story and I would characterize it as cute at best The Heart of Yuki onna by Alison McBain A tale set in Japan about a brave girl who tried to stop Winter Sad and haunting The Wolf ueen by Rowan Lindstrom A tale of revenge and the beautiful bond between a young woman and a wolf uite possibly the most beautiful story in the collection What She Saw by Lantern Light by LA Christensen A French tale that echoes The Snow Child and Midsummer s Night DreamVery atmospheric true to its title The Shard of Glass by David Turnbull This story is an attempt to imagine the life of Gerda and Kay after the events of The Snow ueen It was full of potential but the writing was too blunt too repetitive too melodramatic In my opinion Andersen s creations should be left alone if you don t have the necessary chops as a writerHighly disappointing How Jack Frost Stole Winter by Gavin Bradley A very short but brilliant tale about Jack FrostOut of these fifteen stories three were horrible in my opinion but the rest ranged from good to excellent They show the aspects of Winter in all their glory From the serene tranuil beauty to the foreboding menacing dark cold Most of the stories were definitely on the darker side which as you know is right up my alley In my opinion the anthology would have been excellent if Wolford hadn t acuired such a high and mighty tone in her introduction and the writers had been careful with their subject As it is Frozen Fairy Tales is a balanced collection with certain moments of beauty but it isn t memorable enough if I compare it to other similar anthologiesMy reviews can also be found on
