The fourteen fairy tales in this book are a bit gritty. Humans who are injured have parts remade mechanically. Some have no souls. All of them are doing their best to stay alive.
World Weaver Press sent me an ARC of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
All the stories are intriguing and interesting. Not everybody likes automatons so some people try to get rid of them. No two stories are alike.
My favorite story was "The Coach Girl". You read it and then come and tell me which one you liked best.
