Carthick’s Unfairy Tales
by T.F. Carthick
An evil dragon. A damsel in distress. A concerned father seeking a savior. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armor. Now THAT is stuff of fairy tales.
But what if the father’s real concern is for the dragon’s hoard; What if the damsel’s reason of distress is the marriage proposal by her pompous savior; and what if the story is told by the horse who bears not only the overweight knight but also his heavy, shining armor all the way to the dragon’s lair and back, facing certain death in the process?
What if there was more – much more – to all your favourite fairy tales than meets the eye?
This book chronicles not one but seven such unfairy tales – tales told by undead horsemen and living cities. Tales of mistreated hobgoblins and misunderstood magicians. Tales of disagreeable frogs and distressed mice. And bears baring their souls. Once you read these stories, you will never be able to look at a fairy tale the same way ever again
More Unfairy Tales (Carthick’s Unfairy Tales Book 2)
A knight rescues a damsel in distress. They marry, the whole kingdom rejoices, and everyone lives happily ever after. The end.
Or at least that’s what Official sources say. But what tales do insiders tell? What secrets lie buried deep inside Davey Jones’ Locker?
What, dear reader, about The Unfairy tales?
The stories the Knight-in-Shining-Armour and the Damsel-in-Distress have never wanted you to know. Tales which Fairyland had kept locked up in secret and thrown away the key. Until our rogue bard went back in time and ferreted out skeletons hidden within secret cupboards of desolate mansions.
Our fearless crusader of truth and justice brings to you the second volume of revelations from fairyland.
You will find five more unfairy tales hidden within the pages of this tiny tome, the sequel to Carthick’s Unfairy Tales. Stories of elves out to decipher the ways of men and dwarves seeking to reclaim their own histories. Of spurned witches and lost wolves. These stories are going to change everything you have ever believed about fairyland and give you a peek underneath the gossamer threads of glamour and magic peddled by the Fae.
7 short unfairy stories in each of these books.
So the first impression is that these tales end unfairy and thats unfair, look at the poor mouse who fell for cinderella and gets shooed away.
T F Carthik has made sure that his dialogue delivery is kept crisp and really witty. He takes you to a different world altogether and this world is a relaxation destination.
I enjoyed these cute unfairy Tales like a vivid dream. Did you know if you try drinking orange juice before bed, you get these lucid and vivid dreams? Have you tried that? I tried that and trust me it works like charm!!
Back to the book,.. think about the audacity of a frog who wants to sleep in your bed and eat from your plate.
I asked about how he gets these unique ideas, and he indicated that it’s through fiddling fairy tales characters! The idea flew through 2013 and then various edits managed to write two books. One published in 2018 and the recent one in 2019.
So its high time you grab this book, read it in a cozy place before bed! Drink that orange juice as I suggested- and get those lucid dreams and don’t forget to let us know those dreams 🙂
And if you have already come across some of these vivid dreams, do let us know in the comments below. We’ll see how crazy those dreams are.
