About The Book: What happens when Walt Disney meets the Brothers Grimm in a series of twisted, dark, horror-filled fairy tales in a world of Vampires, Werewolves, Goblins, and the Gnome King.

In the dark forest, Rhed Riding Hood finds her way to Granny’s house. Years later, her passion is awakened by something so dark and sinister that no form of witchcraft can ever prevent. Prince Charming’s Princess is thrown to the ground as her once elegant coach turns into a pumpkin and becomes surrounded by mice at the stroke of midnight. Suddenly Charming isn’t so charming.

Snow White is sent into the woods to be put to death, but the woodsman has other ideas, and the pure step-daughter is thrown into a realm where even evil itself cannot touch her, but becomes her.

Beyond the Looking Glass finds Alice set in an underground world she would never expect through the very nature of it, which forces her to find her way back through Wonderland with the help of the Cheshire cat.

Will you take a look thru the glass to see what pops out?

The Review:

Just about everyone has grown up hearing those wonderful happily ever after fables. Stories set in beautiful worlds with grand characters and loves. What if those worlds were filled with other, darker beings? Who or what would be your favorite?

In Beyond the Looking Glass the reader is treated to a wondrous world full of those dark creatures and desires. Snow white is no longer so pure after the woodsman has come to her. Prince Charming leads in a very different way and will have his woman no matter what. While visiting her grandmother Rhed Riding Hood finds her dark side. Alice finds herself in another world full of things she never even thought existed.

Although every story is a good read in itself, Rhed Riding Hood’s story would have to be my favorite. Rhed grows into a strong and smart woman who takes her life into her own hands and decides to get what she wants and needs. Learning from her grandmother to respect the forest as well as protecting those that dwell there. Rhed decides she is tired of being alone and goes after what she desires.

Each of the stories are fast-paced and well-written, piquing the readers interest and making them want to know more about the characters and their world. I truly enjoyed these stories and would love to see more takes on many of the other old tales. These stories have a great partnership of horror and eroticism that make for an enjoyable read.

Pagan Elements: no

Cover (Rated 1-10): 8

Cover makes one interested in the book; making you wonder just what does the young lady see in the forest.

  1. I rarely read online books (I’m such a paper person), but this one sounds like something I might have to put aside my anti-computer reading (man, do I need a Kindle!) and delve into!

  2. Not only will you enjoy this AP Miller story, but everything written by AP Miller is worth getting a pdf. reader! I wouldn’t advise a Kindle though, try the Sony 700 series (I think that’s what it’s called!). I’ve heard awesome things about the Sony and not so much about the Kindle!
