1 Star #Review of The Poison Eaters: And Other Stories by Holly Black, Theo Black

Poisonous girls whose kisses will kill. A fateful eating contest with the devil. Faeries who return to Ironside, searching for love. A junior prom turned bacchanalia. In twelve short stories, eerie and brimming with suspense and unexpected humor, Holly Black twists the fantastical creatures you thought you knew in ways youll never expect.
 About the Author

Biography

So this one I don't really know how to classify it.  It wasn't really like an anthology.  It was more like a collection of little novellas to get you interested in the full story.  This book includes a snip from one of Holly Blacks other books The Coldest Girl in Coldtown.  Which kinda made me really want to read it now!  But other than that it really did feel like I was only getting part of each story.  I would have rather had full stories.
