9 out of 10

"Ten tales that sweep ancient Europe, from Iceland to England and from Greece to Denmark, giving a taste of the myth and folk-tale of them all. This book is bursting with fantastic retellings of old favorites such as "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" and "Arthur the King." It is alive with grippingly told, unfamiliar stories such as "Godfather Death" and "The Lady of Stavoren." There's a tale in here to thrill, delight, or chill every reader."

I think I bought this from somewhere but I have no idea where. This has been in my tbr-pile two or three years so no wonder I don't remember where this came from. Lately I haven't been able to decide what I feel like reading so I took the shortest book at the top of my tbr-pile and this was a good choice. There were some stories which I hadn't heard and some classics that I enjoyed as much as the new ones. I think I have to find more books from this author.

A quick read and interesting enough, a nice collection of stories from different parts of Europe. Most of them I didn't know or remember.
