A thrillingly reimagined fairy tale from the truly magical combination of author Neil Gaiman and illustrator Chris Riddell – weaving together a sort-of Snow White and an almost Sleeping Beauty with a thread of dark magic, which will hold readers spellbound from start to finish.
On the eve of her wedding, a young queen sets out to rescue a princess from an enchantment. She casts aside her fine wedding clothes, takes her chain mail and her sword and follows her brave dwarf retainers into the tunnels under the mountain towards the sleeping kingdom. This queen will decide her own future – and the princess who needs rescuing is not quite what she seems. Twisting together the familiar and the new, this perfectly delicious, captivating and darkly funny tale shows its creators at the peak of their talents.

I think I’ve read almost everything Neil Gaiman has touched!
If I wasn’t so lazy or in another country I’d probably be his stalker. I’m looking forward to reading this and adding to my ‘NG altar’ collection 😍👍
If anyone is offended by my stalker comments, I’d be concerned you’re not really getting NG’s humour either 😜
Playing games as long as I have and being of the fairer sex I’ve had plenty of run-ins with guys seeking my affection. Some I’ve welcomed, some I’ve avoided and some were just downright disturbing! These liaisons I’m happy to share here but first I wanted to explore the cyber sex scam world as its crossed my virtual path.
Lady in Red or as Facebook has made me rename my gaming self to Ladie InRed (recognising Lady as a title not a name) has finally decided to see if there may be other like minded gamer girls or guys who want to share my journey through virtual life (VL).
I’d like to share some stories of my gaming world and experiences of dealing with people emotionally, mentally, sexually and the challenges we all face with those who say ‘it’s only a game’ and those of us who know that you spend hours talking to these virtual strangers things easily become ‘more than a game’
You may have noticed I’m a mature gamer if such a thing exists! I’m 38yo and although always played computer games since my high school sweetheart introduced me to Dune many many years ago, I’d never really played online strategy war games until I was pregnant with my first child 5 years ago, the rest they say is history, well virtual history anyway.
I hope things I share here might help others who will no doubt come across similar in their own worlds or you might find the exploits and interactions I have entertaining. We all need more silliness in our lives.
Anyway kind reader, welcome and good luck to us all and look forward to the ride!
