This box set contains four novels, Scary Tales Series Books 1-4: That Risen Snow, That Wicked Apple, That Ravenous Moon, and That Malicious Storm.

Happily ever after? Not likely. The first four books of The Scary Tales saga introduce a fairy tale of monstrous proportions, the series that Lawrence C. Connolly says “should be required reading for lovers of fantasy and horror.” 

This dark fantasy adventure begins where the classic Snow White fairy tale ends, with the Prince’s kiss waking Snow from her cursed slumber. Snow wakes up, but she doesn’t wake up right.

Now a deranged zombie, Snow amasses an army of rabid monsters, leaving the young dwarf Grouchy—who is secretly in love with Snow—to find a cure for her malicious curse. So begins an epic journey that pits Grouchy and his motley crew of fellow survivors against a growing horde of creatures. To make matters worse, the curse that empowers Snow continues to grow stronger—and more unpredictable. The terrifying drama unfolds in a fantasy landscape populated by mashups of your favorite fairy tale characters and classic horror monsters. 

There’s no better time to catch up on The Scary Tales, which Bram Stoker Award nominee Jerry Gordon describes as, “A deliciously dark companion to the Grimm’s fairy tale. That Risen Snow banishes happily ever after from the start. Walt Disney by way of The Walking Dead.”

The Scary Tales series is for fans of horror, dark fantasy, zombies, and mashups such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter; Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters; Little Women and Werewolves; Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter; Henry VIII: Wolfman; and Jane Slayre.

REVIEWS:
“Part delicious dream, part nightmare, That Risen Snow is an aberrant fairytale that is just as much a horror story. Boley has a knack for dark comedy and witty prose, and he blends it with a nearly-hardboiled voice uncharacteristic of (and therefore pleasantly unique in) dark fantasy fiction. It’s a story you’ll want to tear ass through but will equally want to slow down for, so you can savor the prose.”
—Brady Allen, author of Back Roads & Frontal Lobes


“In 1912, the Brothers Grimm published an old German fairy tale they titled Snow White. Little did they know that a guy named Rob Boley would come along a hundred years later to reveal the ‘true’ and adult story of Ms. White, or ‘Snow’ as she was known in real life… No one could have possibly foreseen what would become of Snow in the hands of a diabolical, maniacal imagination like Boley’s… Such a nice boy… with such a fevered mind. Read this with the lights on and a baseball bat or shotgun handy… you’re gonna be glad you did. This is a Snow White you ain’t gonna find in the middle school library… Get it, read it, and try to keep the screaming down.”
—Les Edgerton, author of Hooked, Just Like That, and The Bitch


“That Risen Snow and That Wicked Apple make a deliciously diabolical tale—part Walking Dead, part turned-on-its-ear fairy tale. Rob Boley strikes the perfect balance of depth, drama, and dark humor to keep readers devouring the pages and leave them hungering for more.”
—Linda Gerber, author of the Death by Bikini Mysteries

As the Scary Tales saga continues, Grouchy the dwarf and his motley crew of survivors find the human village of Abundance overrun with Snow’s zombies. Grouchy gains an unlikely partner in the treacherous Queen Adara, who gave his beloved Snow that wicked apple. Adara agrees to help Grouchy in his quest to find a cure, but only to serve her own devious plans.

The apple that transformed Snow into a zombie has now grown into a cursed tree. Destroying it may be Grouchy’s only chance to cure his true love. But first, he must escape Abundance and face the resurrected Prince Mikael, who thanks to Snow is now more powerful than ever.

Except the Prince, Snow, and her apple are only the beginning. Grouchy and Adara soon learn that Snow isn’t merely a rabid monster. Grouchy’s beloved Snowflake is controlling her fellow zombies and manipulating them for her own dark ends. To make matters worse, the curse that empowers Snow continues to grow stronger—and more unpredictable.

DEAL ALERT: This set contains *three complete novels* from the Jenni James Faerie Tale Collection - CINDERELLA, HANSEL & GRETEL, and JACK & THE BEANSTALK.

CINDERELLA
A girl with a secret and a prince on a mission--

When Prince Anthony spies Eleanoria Woodston outside her family home dressed as a servant, he knows something is amiss. Pretending to be John, his cousin’s outrider, he decides to take matters into his own hands and figure out why Ella hasn’t been seen at court. And more importantly why the daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the kingdom dresses like a pauper.

Ella has had her own bout of trials, including losing her beloved father and facing the wrath and jealousy of her stepmother and stepsisters. Becoming a servant doesn’t seem all that bad until the handsome John comes into her life, now he appears to be upsetting everything. Never before has she been so unsettled. Just his presence is making her dream of a life beyond this one.

When John invites Ella to the ball and she grudgingly accepts, he wonders if he’s truly losing his mind. How would he ever pull off pretending to be John while obviously hosting the ball as Anthony? Especially when the stubborn girl has made it quite obvious she would never attend a ball with a snobbish prince.

HANSEL AND GRETEL
A hidden princess and the boy who saves her life—

Hansel's father finds a child lost and alone during a violent thunderstorm. After bringing her in from the tempest, he and his son are startled to discover that she is Gretel, a princess of Larkein--the enemy kingdom their own king has just destroyed. Fearful for her life, Hansel pleads with his father to save her. He believes they can make Gretel good by teaching her their ways. His kindhearted father agrees, but with great trepidation.

Ten years later, Gretel has grown into a lovely young woman who both infuriates and drives Hansel to distraction while he attempts to not lose his heart to her. When the Larkein witch comes back in the guise of a beautiful woman and marries their father, everything is set into a tailspin. Now they must figure out their new stepmother's plans and prevent her from destroying them all before it is too late.

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK
The quest to save a girl from a giant—

Jack Waithwrite is livid when he learns that his fiancée, Rachel, has been stolen by a giant and taken up to a kingdom in the sky. Without the means to save her, he travels with his sister to Larkein, the place where dark magic abides, to discover a way to help Rachel. While there, a cunning witch knows who he is and offers to help him. However, when he finds out the kidnapping was orchestrated by the witch to use him as her pawn for her own schemes, his true quest begins. Now Jack must outwit a giant and stay one step ahead of the witch in time to save Rachel.

Enjoy Jack and the Beanstalk, the continuing tale of Hansel and Gretel and what happened after they were married. Jack and Jill Waithwrite are the children of Hansel and Gretel, and as their parents before them had adventures, now it is their turn.

Peter Pan needs help, and he’s convinced the effervescent Wendy Darling is just the girl to champion his cause. Ever since the mischievous fairy Tinker Bell began recruiting—more like, snatching—boys from London’s orphanages to take them to a magical place called Neverland, things have gotten out of hand.  Captain Hook has only become more violent and the boys more lost as their memories of life before Neverland begin to fade.  Peter’s only hope is to get the boys back to England and help bring balance to Neverland before Hook’s dangerous escapades kill them all. 

Wendy is not quite certain why such a handsome young man would need her—especially a lad who clearly has a touch of madness in him.  What boy learns to fly?  But whatever the reason, home life has become too much for her now that her parents are hoping she marries an acquaintance she can barely abide.  There is something about Peter Pan that intrigues her greatly, and then there is this magical world he talks about, this Neverland…
