Faery Tales & Nightmares is an anthology of short stories by Melissa Marr, many set in the world of her Wicked Lovely series.
Marr revisits favorite fan characters such as faeries Niall and Irial, and introduces fascinating new beings, including a vampire, a pair of selchie brothers, and a goblin. The strange creatures can appear anywhere, coming from the sea, from the woods, from inside storms; they may come seeking to bring destruction or to find a passionate encounter…
Lush, seductive, and chilling, the stories in Melissa Marr’s Faery Tales & Nightmares blend fairy tales and folklore, horror and fantasy, and allow us to revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.

Melissa Marr is the author of the bestselling Wicked Lovely series as well as the adult fantasy novelsGraveminderandThe Arrivals. When not writing, editing, or traveling, Melissa is buried under a plethora of books, dogs, and children in Virginia or online at www.melissa-marr.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this look I read this book when it first came out and I still love it so much

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Companion Bliss This is a companion novel to the wicked lovely series as well as a cluster of short stories. Warning: this novel contains Wicked Lovely spoilers. I really enjoyed finding out what happened with the wicked lovely crew (Niall, Leslie, Seth, Donia, Keenan and even Irial). For the other short stories, I enjoyed "Love Struck" and "Transition" aka Seal Boy and sexy, chilling, non love story, vampires.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I thought I didn't know there were parts in the book where it was a continuity to her other series, which I have not read so I skipped some parts. When I tried reading this book I kept falling asleep on it and didn't find any interest in finishing it. It's different stories but I couldn't get into them since they are so short. You might like it if you've read her series, don't get me wrong she's an awesome author, I just didn't like all short stories, it wasn't what I thought.

Editorial Reviews

Simple but lyrical language, resourceful female protagonists, and a mixed bag of supernatural delights should hold an allure for fans and newcomers alike.
