Dead Souls Review – Part Two: Once Upon A Time

And hot on the heels of Part One, we have Part Two, this time focusing on the Fairy Tale stories within the collection:

The Price of Peace’ by Anna M. Lowther is longest and my top pick, because it takes a rather pleasant and optimistic story from my culture. This is the story about the snow girl, who from a human-shaped snow figure became a real girl as a gift to a couple, who couldn’t conceive a child of their own. This is a very sweet story, the way I have been hearing it since a child, but Lowther has taken it and run a ‘When Happy Endings Go Horribly Wrong’ and the snow girl becomes from a blessing to a primordial evil.
