Into the Woods

This sexually explicit anthology is dark, theme-focused, provocative, enticing (on multiple levels) and mood-effective, with no wasted words and plenty of nuance. All of these stories here have something to recommend them. Coupled with Inoue’s anthology-appropriate, equally alluring artwork, this is a great read, as well as one of the best erotic anthologies I’ve read in a long while. Worth owning, this. – Steve Isaac

Unique collection of beautifully written stories which revisit fairy tales and mythology as dreams, fantasies and nightmares. Loved it! – Robin

 

Individual stories

The Kiss is from Michelle Augello-Page. It is a sensual story whose underlying plot I didn’t get until the very last paragraph. Very intense and alluring. – Bruce Von Stiers

“Into the Woods” : This “contemporary retelling” of Hansel and Gretel lives up to that description, with its troubling, sweet and non-erotic brevity and excellent finish. One of my favorite stories in this collection. – Steve Isaac

I liked this collection of modern, dark, edgy, and erotic fairy tales, my favorite is Wolf Moon … It is not the erotic or romance that really makes this collection shine, but it is the dark edgy tone of the fairy tales. – M.Orias

Possibilities of more intricate action do open up, but only Michelle Augello-Page’s ferocious “Wolf Moon” truly shakes off the shackles – or, should I say, straps them on. – Jenny Swallows

Another reader, Michelle Augello-Page, stood the stage next. Her prose morosely danced throughout a forest of deceit and infidelity. The words hung ornate, impossible to understand without its cousins. Augello-Page’s story cradled a complex beauty that perhaps would better be appreciated when printed. That doesn’t mean I don’t plan to look up just that, y’know. – BBQChickenRobot

I thought ‘Ring of Fire’ by Michelle Augello-Page was beautifully and romantically written – the language is well crafted and exotic, a more descriptive inclusion that really adds to the variety of tone in the book. – Jo

“Into the Labyrinth” : Entertaining, fever dreamish and, at times, brutal read. – Steve Isaac
