Werewolves, vampires, and mermaids all have one thing in common: they are shape-changers. This book is a compilation of their stories. From Finland to India, the tales cover everything from an unruly bride to new world explorers. Some are humorous, while others are tragic. These Immortals' stories have come together to confound, delight, and, most of all, entertain. THE BEASTLY BRIDE is an excellent anthology of some of the best stories from around the world. Some tales will seem familiar, while others will not. The enjoyment of them, however, will not change. The layout is done quite well, the forward is well-written, and the bibliography well-laid out and easy to reference. Readers who like fantasy, shapeshifters, and anthologies will all enjoy this book.

****Cool fact! Look at the front cover and turn the book upside down! There's more to the cover than what meets the eye!***** I stumbled upon this book at my local library, browsing among the shelves. I'm a great fan of Terri Windling and Ellen Datlow's anthologies but I had no idea they were coming out with a new one! I haven't yet read all of the stories but I love this book and highly recommend it!
