A collection of dark faerie tales, inspired by folklore, myth and legend, told in the haunting lyrical style of dark poet E.J. Stevens.
I will be honest with you. I haven’t read poetry in a long time. Honestly, I probably haven’t read a book on poetry since high school, and we won’t even mention how long ago that was.  When I asked the author if I could review her book, it was the cover that had me intrigued. It had the goth like look to it with a paranormal feel in the writing.  Since I am a fan of paranormal books, I thought I would try to read some poetry in the genre.
Now, I want you to think about all the creatures you read about in paranormal books. Now take all those creatures and put it in poetry. That is the basis of this book.  The author has beautiful poetry featuring wolves, vampires, fae, gnomes, zombie’s, unicorns, sirens, reapers and more. Each poem is wonderfully written and has a dark feel to each one. I really enjoyed each one, and the feel of each one. 
The author has a great writing skill with poetry and it makes me want to see what could be done with a novel as well.
