I would definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for a darker take on fairy tales. Tales of Love and Magic will transport its readers to another place in time. A place of undeniable odds, a place of magic, and a place where you never know the ending.

Belle Noir is a collection of short stories for adults and most of the stories are about heartbreak, pain and magic.

This book was so original, I didn't want to put it down. Don't let the name and cover fool you, Belle Noir is dark and heart wrenching, All of the characters i The full review is posted on my blog: Don't let the name and cover fool you, Belle Noir is dark and heart wrenching, All of the characters in the first four stories faced great pain - at the hands of men - and reading about them felt like witnessing some thing private that was shared by accident, but I couldn't look away, it was too intriguing.

Oct 16, Shannon Kamzelski sanders rated it really liked it. I was provided with a copy from the author for an honest review. Prepare to have your mind opened to so new possibilities on the story you thought you know. Each time it is reworked in such a manner that you will be amazed at how many different versions this tale can really have. Well written and thought provoking. These stories had me thinking about the characters and the plot well after I set the book down. Oct 17, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: A quick, yet enjoyable read.

There is a definite dark undertone to all of these stories. There are also moment of twists I did not see coming. Ultimately, I take away the message of not judging someone by their outside. Sometimes you have to look deeper. If you like to read about different takes on classic fairy tales, I highly recommend Belle Noir.

Some things are memorable to me b Originally posted on Paranormal Sisters http: Some things are memorable to me but truthfully I don't really remember the first two stories in this book.

I remember the last three though so I'll talk some about them. I hated where it was going because I'm really not a big fan on reading stories of child sexual abuse so this led me to be sour at the end of it.

iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.

Most of the time I felt disconnected from it but I did like that it was about gargoyles, it was a nice surprise and twist, sorry Mirabillis: The time period I loved and what the actually beast looked like was definitely creative, I couldn't get enough and the most memorable. I remember them now but sadly this book isn't that memorable. I felt complete sympathy for our main girl.

It was enjoyable but again I didn't know where things were going.

Overall this is an okay read. I don't regret it but I wished I would have liked it more.

Sometimes sentences would go on and on, dragging to the point of my eyes getting tired. I couldn't believe how long some of them were, so that helped with me not quite enjoying it. These are adult themes so this is a forewarning. I knew it was but I was hoping one wouldn't lead to a child getting what she doesn't deserve, that man is truly a beast.

So if that makes you uncomfortable then skip story number 3. Other than that, the rest can be read comfortably. Sep 15, Sara rated it it was ok. I was expecting a version of stories of retellings of traditional tales which the book was advertised as. In four of the stories the links with the traditional tales were weak and were disturbing tales about things I was not expecting like Child abuse.

The fifth story Mirabilis was fantastic, exactly what the collection should have been like. It was a retelling of beauty and the beast where the beauty and beast worked together to find a cure. This is what I expected the rest to be like. As a I was expecting a version of stories of retellings of traditional tales which the book was advertised as.

As a result I was unable to give this story the 4 stars it deserves as overall I did not like the book. I would recommend reading Mirabilis and ignoring the rest of the stories.

Belle Noir: Tales of Love and Magic

I meet only an inscrutable expression. It is there every time I catch your eye, which grows less and less frequent. The last time you have ever truly looked at me was the last time I held you in my arms, the last time any honesty had ever passed between us. I watch you, do you know that? I search your face in vain for any trace of the other. I watch you and take note of the what moves you, the breathtaking sunset that awed you, the red rose whose rich scent you feasted upon, the books you read avidly, and I note, too, how you turn from me when I approach you by the window, not even a perfunctory comment when I dress my hair in roses, shutting the covers and saying it was nothing of interest when I inquire what you read.

Even an absentminded pat on the head that you would give to a faithful dog, you do not bestow upon me. I remain the rose underneath my father's glass, perfect and untouched.
