A New York Times Bestseller

Leave it to the heroes to save the world--villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage--and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth your money. There's 3 good story in the whole book, they are really good and deserved to be read. (Marisa, Adam and Victoria's) Alas, all the rest of them are poor by comparaison and some of them I couldn't even stomach to finish. I was so excited for this one, even got a sample at book con, but it was not worth it at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very interesting read 3.5/5 An anthology of stories about villains. There is a something for everyone. You'll find your favourite authors and discover new ones. Give it a try. The blood on Imuriv: 2/5 I didn't care for this villain. Jack: 4/5 An interesting take on Jake and the Beanstalk. Gwen and art and Lance: 4/5 I enjoyed this modern take on King Arthur. Shirley and Jim: 4/5 I love the idea of a female Sherlock, of her past with Moriarty and the way the story was told. I would gladly read a full length novel set in this world. The blessing of little Wants: 2/5 I wasn't sure who the villain actually is. The Sea Witch: 4.5/5 I loved this story of the sea witch's past before the little mermaid. Beautiful Venom: 3/5 Well written and very descriptive. I'm just not a fan of medusa. Death Knell: 5/5 I really enjoyed this one. It was interesting to read about the personification of death. It was beautifully written. If you're familiar with The Book Thief you'll enjoy this as it has a similar feel. Marigold: 3/5 Interesting. Fantasy combined with the Victorian era. You, You It’s all about You: 3/5 This was interesting. It was completed unexpected. Julian breaks every rule: 3/5 Getting into the mind of a 15 year old boy was interesting. Indigo and Shade: 3/5 A twist on Beauty and the Beast. Sera: 3/5 I liked the writing style but the story didn't captivate me.

Editorial Reviews

"A diverse array of high-profile authors are showcased . . . and the inclusion of the BookTubers is an interesting idea that allows for a range of perspectives. The concept alone is enough to draw readers, so stock up--it's never been so fun to be bad." - Booklist

"An explosively entertaining joy ride of villainous goodness." - Kirkus Reviews

"A pretty wicked collection of wicked deeds." - BCCB
