Lovely, Dark, and Deep Reviews
I received this book as an arc through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really liked this collection of stories. While not all of them worked for me personally I loved the variety from romantic to flat out scary. I think the editor did a great job finding stories that fit the theme in a variety of ways, and I liked that the idea of the woods was used so broadly. It made for a great anthology. I loved that the characters were just as diverse as the stories, and that it wasn't just an m/m or a f/f anthology. It added to the depth, and richness of the stories and the collection. A great read, and it would be just as good read in sections or in one sitting (you know like I did.) A great collection of stories especially if you like fairy tales or anything on the scary side.

Lovely, Dark, and Deep is a wonderful collection of paranormal short stories exploring gay, bisexual, trans-gender and lesbian love.** ✮.✮.✮.✮. for the collection as a whole. **Lovely, Dark, and Deep is a well collected and edited anthology. Some of the stories I liked better than the others, but that's the beauty of anthologies; there is always something for everyone! My favorite picks would be The Warmth of Home by Jamie Sullivan and The Forest Prince by Hope Medina.Individual Reviews to follow.----------Before the Snow Falls (the Dead Walk) by Barbara Geiger-> M/M Luke has been hired by his best friend's parents to find Kent, Jacob's little brother who went missing after joining a cult that turned out to be quite creepy and very dangerous.The In-Between by C.J.

Featured on All Our Worlds!Wilderness has always held a place in the human imagination as a place of monsters, of spirits, of hidden civilizations. These stories explore all of that with a huge helping of queer romance. The forest is forbidden, or the forest is home. The forest is full of monsters, or wonders. And when the outsiders meet the residents of these strange places, things are going to get exciting.I liked most of these stories. A few were a bit too strange for my liking, or just didn’t interest me. There’s a huge variety, so there’s going to be something for everybody.My favorites were Beneath the Hollow Hills, where a woman searching for food is captured by an elven camp who must then decide whether they can trust her, Dragon’s Curse, where an undead squire goes on a quest to help a princess and a dragon, and The Warmth of Home, where a man rescues an injured crane in the forest and gains a new friend- and then partner.
I was able to read this book courtesy of NetGalley.I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is a nice mix of new and established authors, and a nice mix of FF & MM themes. All had an ominous feeling which might make people nervous if reading in the dark. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal LBGT fantasy with a dark side to it, especially if there is an author in the book they know and like. It is a good opportunity to learn about some brand new writers and maybe some you missed.
