    1. These two short stories are retellings of fairy tales. I won't say the tales that are being retold because that could spoil the reading.The first story is The Key by Rachel Hawkins. A young girl dreams of leaving her life behind. She wants to run away from her trailer home and her mom who gives psychic readings. But even a psychic can be surprised by what the future has in store for them.The second story is The Brothers Pigget Julie Kagawa. (OK, you can probably guess what storythis is retelling [...]




    2. As I eagerly await the anthology, Grim, an anthology of fairy tales retold, I downloaded Two Tales Dark & Grim by Rachel Hawkins and Julie Kagawa for free! Two of my favorite authors who are in the big collection and I read their stories early!I love fairy tales, I believe in some twisted way it's what spawned by love of paranormal stories. What with witches and curses and spells and fairiesat's Urban Fantasy in the making! And what was great about these two stories--and what I hope to see i [...]


    3. The Key by Rachel HawkinsThis story didn't seem as "fairy tale" like to me. Yes, there were magical elements to the story, such as the main character and mother having psychic abilities. The love interest was not what he seemed and immediately the reader knew that something odd was happening. This read more like a paranormal thriller and the ending was left open for the reading to imagine what was going to happen. While looking up this story, I came to realize that it was supposed to be based on [...]


    4. i got these two stories for free on ibooks, and i'm really happy about that. i have read books by rachel hawkins before (the hex hall series is one of my favorites, i may add), but julie kagawa is new to me. however, the first story by rachel hawkins delivered. i quickly got invested in her main character, lana, and i wish there was more to the story. it had a great twist and i could have read a whole book. the brothers piggett by julie kagawa was a neat twist with a mature romantic feel, though [...]


    5. This is a two story sneak peek at the anthology Grim. It includes The Key by Rachel Hawkins and The Brothers Piggett by Julie Kagawa.While they were both full of fairy tale fun, I preferred Rachel's eerie and suspenseful Bluebeard retelling over Julie's silly and bloody Three Little Pigs retelling. In fact, I find myself wishing Hawkins would expand the world from her short story into a full novel.Based on my enjoyment of both of these, I will most likely be picking up this anthology when it's r [...]


    6. The key is a retelling of Bluebeard and while it was entertaining it really wasn't at all like Bluebeard. Maybe I'm just not a fan of short story's. The next book is a retelling of the three little pigs and I think little red riding hood. It was quite an interesting take on the story and I liked it. I liked that maya got her revenge and was the witch. All in all this was an entertaining read and definitely a different take on the grim fairy tales but I'm not sure if I would want to read the book [...]


    7. 2.5 stars for Rachel Hawkins's story, which had a lot of seen-before elements but was fairly well-written.1 star for Julie Kagawa's story, which was not a bad idea but was executed in a frustratingly predictable way, with lackluster writing. Also, Pedro means Peter, so those are not good names for brothers.


    8. The Key by Rachel Hawkins:Rachel Hawkins always brings such an element of humor to her books, and this was no different. I thoroughly enjoyed it.The Brothers Piggett by Julie Kagawa:While I didn't like this quite as much as The Key, it was still a fantastical, if a bit predictable, journey. over-all, both stories were good.


    9. These were pretty good short stories by two good authors. Personally, I love Kagawa's Iron Fey series, and her short story in this book felt a bit flat compared to her other books. However, the first story by Rachel Hawkins delivered. I quickly got invested in her main character, Lana, and I wish there was more to the story. It had a great twist and I could have read a whole book.


    10. This was a lunch hour read. I liked the first story, but it was a bit predictable and too short. I did like the fact that it was modern and well written. The second tale was a bit dull for me. I knew the characters were all selfish and evil, so they were hard to like. I'm not sure if I would want to read an entire collection of these a Grim Tales.


    11. The Key was quite interesting in terms of its plot twists but it felt a bit unbelievable in terms of character development and choices. The Brothers Piggett was a neat twist of "The Three Little Pigs" with a mature romantic feel.


    12. I thought that this was a good little collection of two entertaining short stories. Give this a go if you're on the fence on reading from either of these talented authors. Definitely looking forward to read more stories and books by these talented ladies.


    13. A short, fun collection of two stories from two great authors. Though both were surprising and well written, I loved Kagawa's contribution the most. It had the most mythology and best turns. Something for fairytale lovers!


    14. PartialThis book was only two stories of a full anthology. I didn't realize until after I had read "The Key". The story just ended. I knew the e-book wasn't over. I wanted more of that story I really liked it. I didn't care so much for the second one.


    15. The first story, "The Key", by Rachel Hawkins, was definitely the stronger one. Julie Kagawa is a very talented writer, but her version of The Three Little Pigs never quite took off for me, and I felt it was weak and absolutely not her best work.I got this for free on Kindle.


    16. Crap.All the words I can muster up at this point is dang. This short story has made my skin crawl, and my should ache. It's amazing and terrible at the same time.




    17. I had already read the key, but I thought that the brothers Pigget was a pretty good story. Great play on the three little pigs. great free nook book choice for two short stories
