Anthology of 13 stories from authors and internet critics retelling classic myths and fairy tales from the perspective of the bad guys in them.

Leave it to the heroes to save the world. Villains just want to rule it.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains' points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like "Medusa," Sherlock Holmes, and "Jack and the Beanstalk" provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains' acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage - and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on.

No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!
