Book Review (ARC): Mirror, Mirror (In Death #37.5) anthology

Mirror, Mirror (In Death #37.5)
by J.D. Robb, Mary Blayney, Elaine Fox, Mary Kay McComas, Ruth Ryan Langan

Once upon a time…

…in a world far removed from the days when fairy tales were new, five bestselling authors spin versions that take the classic stories into a new dimension. You’ll recognize Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and other enduring characters, but they’ll exist in realms beyond your imagination, where the familiar is transformed into the extraordinary and otherworldly.

I will never look at fairy tales the same again.

Mirror, Mirror features five very talented author's takes on the classic stories Hansel & Gretel, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and The Little Match Girl.

With each author giving their dramatically unique spin on their chosen fairy tale  Mirror, Mirror becomes more than your average anthology. It almost becomes an event.

J.D. Robb, Elaine Fox, Mary Kay McComas and R.C. Ryan bring in the contemporary while Mary Blayney adds a dash of historical. Having never read anything by any of the authors (although I have read Nora Roberts), I didn't know what to expect but had high hopes for this anthology.

I enjoyed each and every author's story and the fact that Mirror, Mirror wasn't just contemporary takes on fairy tales made it all the more enjoyable. My favorite though, was J.D. Robb's dark, suspense filled take on Hansel & Gretel. Told in a very convincing manner, it gave me chills just thinking that there are actually people in the world like the antagonist. Whoa, what does that say about me that I liked that story the best?

This anthology provides sterling examples of each author's style and really gave me a chance to see if I liked what each one had to offer, which I did and will be adding these authors full length novels to my "To Read" list.
