Excerpt:

My governess, Elyse, discovered the portal high in a tree and swore me and my brothers to secrecy. “A gateway to another world,” she’d called it. The view had looked much like our kingdom, with towering trees and a grassy meadow sprinkled with yellow buttercups, but the silver dragons never flapped their wings, and instead of breathing fire, they left smoke trails. 

The small shimmering portal smelled of magic, but since it was high in a crook of a tree trunk, it remained unnoticed by most. Fascinated with the view, I visited the forest daily and climbed the tree. My brothers knew my routine, but only one suspected my true interest. Arianna.

The first time I entered her world, I had hovered near her prone body. When she glanced up, she had wiped the tears away and smiled. “Hello there,” she had greeted. She’d stretched out her hand and I floated over, landing on her finger.

Ever since that initial visit, when she saw me, she called me friend. 

“I’m careful.” I nodded to my older brother. “She does not know what I am or where I come from.”

“It’s a shame she doesn’t follow you home,” Jett said, walking toward the clearing. He stretched his arms out, then shifted. With his wings tucked to his side, he arched his neck so his amber eyes gazed into mine. “Come fly with me,” his deep voice rumbled.

“How about this evening?” I replied as he unfurled his wings. Jett nodded his colossal head and lifted into the air.

As soon as my brother was out of sight, I climbed the tree and settled into my spot, gazing once more through the hole at the lady in another world. Arianna had dried her eyes and opened her ever-present sketchbook, once more escaping to into her own altered reality. As a smile replaced her grave expression, my heart raced, surveying her classical elegance. The line of her jaw, her small upturned nose, and sensitive silver-gray eyes all appealed to me and my dragon.

My dragon wanted to fly to her and protect her, but as a dragonfly I wasn’t sure I could.

Once upon a time…

There were two brothers who collected tales from their homeland and put them in a book. Stories of magical creatures and horrible fates. Princesses who fell under enchantment and princes who came from the countryside to save them.

These are not those stories.

And we are not those brothers.

This time, it’s the Sisters turn to spin nine tales that will delight and terrify you. If you were looking for those classic stories you heard in your childhood, look again, because these stories aren’t like any you’ve heard before.

Maidens turning into flowers, and soldiers brought back to life by a snake’s whim, these stories are filled with a dark romance that you can only get when you reimagine those classic Fairy Tales.

Here’s your chance to find out if all Fairy Tales end in: Happily Ever After...
Or if their fates are sometimes a little bit Grimm...
