Bringing together some of the best emerging authors of Young Adult Paranormal and urban fantasy, The ‘Dark Heart’ (Volume One) anthology is a showcase collection of Dark Fairy Tales designed to introduce you to new and talented authors from Europe, America, Canada and the UK.

From goblins, to fairies, from witches to magical trees, this collection taps into a rich tradition of story-telling. Although each story is unique in style and subject, what they have in common is the effect of making you still believe that maybe monsters really do lurk under the bed, and that maybe reality is nothing but a reassuring tale we tell ourselves in order to protect our souls from the darkness.

'Dark Heart' is about the art of storytelling. Each story in this eclectic mix, is rich in imagination, creativity and character. We are sure that you will love them as much as the editorial team at LBPH do.
