Comments Wolves and Witches

  • Chris

    Crossposted at BooklikesI was somewhat hesitant to pick this up, but then I got gift cards and the price was reduced on the kindle version so what hell. It’s friggin awesome. The darker stories seem to be, for the most part, by Amanda C. Davis while the lighter stories are by Megan Engelhardt I love, absolutely totally, completely wonderfully love Questing for Princesses. It’s about a prince and a desire not to quest. But I knew I was in good hands after the first story “Instructions” wh [...]

    My favorite of the collection was "Questing for Princesses" by Davis. It did what I like retellings to do: show me the other side of a fairy tale, and either be dark or really funny. Different POVs, backstory, fractured viewpoints, whatever - I like to explore multiple versions, all the angles. In this story, the other side was a prince who thought it ridiculous to do all that just to snag a bride. That being fight dragons, treat a monster with TLC, search an entire kingdom for an anonymous chic [...]

    I've been reading a lot of short-ish indie titles recently (totally not because they conveniently pad out my annual goal count *cough*), especially riffs on fairy tales. Some have been good; a lot more have been mediocre. This particular collection, however, was a pleasant surprise; the stories were consistently evocative and entertaining. Some (like "The Long Con" and "A Mouth To Speak The Coming Home") felt a little skeletal - I think the premises of both of these could have stood some more f [...]


  • G.L. Jackson

    Picking up Wolves and Witches was a no-brainer for me. I'm a fan of author Amanda Davis from way back. This compilation between Davis and her sister Megan Engelhardt is a twist on some classic fairy tales, all looked at from the perspective of characters who may not have been the stories' stars the first time around, but most definitely shine in these retellings. There are a fair number of stories in the book that are told twice, once by each author, but the differences are spectacular, as are t [...]

    Wolves and Witches is a fabulous collection of re-imagined fairy tales. I made the mistake of starting it late one evening and couldn't go to sleep until I had read it all. With their dark prose and evocative poetry these sisters have done the Brothers Grimm proud.


  • Eileen

    Dark and wondrous stories that I couldn't read fast enough -- like Red Riding Hood's wolf, in one sitting, I'd swallowed them whole.


  • Chuck Engelhardt

    As I read Wolves and Witches by Amanda Davis and Megan Engelhardt, the most common adjective to describe it that came to mind was “clever.” It is indeed a clever twist to familiar tales. As a child I remember thinking that some pretty horrific stuff happens in Fairy Tales; wolves eat grandmothers, young girls are held captive in secluded towers, and little children are regularly lost and abused. Davis and Engelhardt grasp on to these aspects of the stories and paint a picture of how they cam [...]

    Original Post at Fangs, Wands and Fairy DustWOLVES AND WITCHES is a Delightful Surprisefangswandsandfairydustspo#This is a surprisingly excellent collection of mostly deliciously written re-imagined fairy tales. Amanda Davis' The Instructions is particularly fabulous. I wasn't expecting much from this collection. It's so much fun and filled with dark and delicious revenge-filled tales! Even the poetry is enjoyable. I don't have a huge amount to say about this because I enjoyed it but the stories [...]


  • Rene' Riddle

    Ooooooooooo can I just tell you how much I loved this book? SO. SO. MUCH. These ladies don't just write well, they have a gift. Everyone can practice something and go to school for it, and work really really hard and get good enough at it to do it professionally. But not everyone has the gift for writing, and these ladies write so spectacularly well. I was ever so disappointed when the book was over. It was way too short. I was a little nervous because I purchased this on my kindle and it always [...]


  • Emily

    I should have been wary of buying a book so few people had reviewed but i saw the posative reviews and purchased this. took me hardly any time at all to read it so that's a negative to me. i hate spending money on a book that i read in an hour (i bought the e-book). this is a collection of short stories and even shorter poems. I dont personally think they are written terribly well but thats just my humble opinion. whats most frustrating is that each one feels like a small clipping from a much me [...]


  • Stephen V.

    In their collection of re-envisioned fairy tales, Wolves and Witches, Amanda C. Davis and Megan Engelhardt deliver an assortment of poetry and short fiction that entertains the ear and tickles the mind. The prose is assured, clever, and insightful, and the stories, which often experiment with perspective, dance from the page. Highlights include Davis' "Bones in the Branches", "Her Dark Materials" and "The Gold in the Straw," and Engelhardt's "Untruths About the Desirability of Wolves" and the in [...]


  • Mckenzie Richardson

    This was such a cool book. Quick read, but very enjoyable. The stories and poems were beautiful and creative as they retold old tales or extended them. This was truly a remarkable work. Half of the fun was trying to figure out what story the authors were retelling. I loved the new perspectives and twists to the stories. I definitely recommend this book. My personal favorites were "The Long Con", "A Letter Concerning Shoes", "A Shining Spindle Can Still Be Poisoned", and "Questing for Princesses" [...]


  • Susan Sullivan

    Delightful, sly, intelligent, witty and entertaining. My absolute favorites: the poem, "Untruths About the Desirability of Wolves" and a brilliant little piece, "The Instructions," that hooked me with its irreverent tone. 5 stars out of 5 stars for the entire collection! My only wish is that the book were longer!


  • Margaret

    This is a quite fun collection of fairy tale retellings. I'd never read either author before, but I'll keep an eye out for both.


  • C Hellisen

    I really enjoyed this little collection of retold fairy-tales in prose and verse.


  • Amanda

    Loved! I was disappointed when I realized I had finished it. These sisters did great with the retelling of fairy talesI had forgotten about, twisting them and making them into their own.


  • Nikki

    More dark fairy tales turned on their heads or shown from a different perspective. Very light read in terms of length. Not much to say other than I did like these stories.


  • Julie

    This is a fast, yet rich read that was perfect for standing in lines and waiting for the kids to get out of school. Transported me for just a moment, and I'll more than likely read it a few times.


  • Paul Magnan

    Excellent and original take on cherished fairy tales. Recommended.
