Wicked Lovely series' covers are absolutely gorgeous and Faery Tales and Nightmares' cover is so pretty too! I love the girl's dress, how she is staring at the window and the dark background. It gives an eerie feeling to the book.

12 Enthralling Short Stories...
Okay, so I never reviewed a book full of short stories. I won't go reviewing each short story since it's going to be a long review so I'm going to review the book in general. Obviously the short stories I enjoyed most were the ones set in Wicked Lovely world with characters from Wicked Lovely. As usual, Marr's stories are beautifully written. I adored every one of them. Once again, I am sucked into the world of faeries, adoring the beauty of Faes, the summer world, the winter world and meeting the characters from Wicked Lovely series again. I loved how there were quite a few short stories involving Niall and Irial since they were one of my favourite characters in the book. Some of the short stories are set after Ink Exchange and some were set after Fragile Eternity. I love the last short story too : "Merely Mortal" which is about Keenan and Donia! There were also short stories with Seth and Aislinn, Devlin and Sorcha! I absolutely love how these short stories are all compiled into a book and how Marr's other short stories published in Teeth and Enthralled are in this book as well. I enjoy reading Transition too. It was a short story about vampires!
Melissa Marr's writing never ceases to take readers into a world filled with faeries, vampires and other beautiful paranormal creatures. If you love Marr's Wicked Lovely series, then you should definitely read this book because it also contains numerous short stories set in the world of Wicked Lovely! Faery Tales and Nightmares will bring you once again a taste of Melissa Marr's beautiful, enthralling and gorgeous writing.
