Give Me Your Teeth: A Fae Tale (REVIEW)

Give Me Your Teeth: A Fae Tale

Author: Jeff Chapman
Category: Fantasy Horror Thriller Novelette
Suitable for: pre-teens and up
My Rating: 5 Stars
Format Read for Review: Kindle copy from the author
Pages: 38

Description: This story is about a 10 year old boy named Jimmy. Jimmy thought his biggest problems were the bullies until he lost a tooth and had a frightening encounter with the tooth fairy. What if the tooth fairy you knew as your loving mommy turned out to be a horrifying creature?

In Short: What makes this novel scary is not just the faerie with sharpened teeth but the helplessness of our child protagonist. If you like horror this is a fun read that is longer than your typical short story so it is packed with action but still a quick read.

This book is $0.99 on Amazon

Pros: This book is very, very well written. What you can really appreciate about Jeff Chapman's writing is that the language matches the setting and characters of a particular story. As a result you find yourself deeply immersed. It is very descriptive and includes a lot of fun and interesting details. I liked the use of the mom and her nail file and a chilling explanation for why mothers always seem to have a nail file handy. I thought this was a entertaining story and I would love to see more. I thought the description of the tooth fairy was awesome and terrifying. I felt danger for Jimmy the entire time and I loved the ending.

Cons: I have no notable issues with this book.

Parent's Guide: Pretty clean book and not too scary. Some violence in the form of children brawling. I would say it is a safe read for most adolescents.

I received a free copy of this book in return for my honest review. This post contains affiliate links to Amazon.
