A girl who's always been in the shadows finds herself pursued by the unbelievably attractive new boy at school, who may or may not be the death of her. Another girl grows up mute because of a curse placed on her by a vindictive spirit, and later must decide whether to utter her first words to the boy she loves and risk killing everyone who hears her if the curse is real. And a third girl discovers that the real reason for her transient life with her mother has to do with belonging - literally belonging - to another world entirely, full of dreaded creatures who can transform into animals, and whose queen keeps little girls as personal pets until they grow to childbearing age. From a writer of unparalleled imagination and emotional insight, three stories about the deliciousness of wanting and waiting for that moment when lips touch.

"Cassandra Campbell breathes life into Taylor's fantasy collection, nominated for the National Book Award. Her Eastern European accents work beautifully with the rich mythologies in these three darkly romantic tales. A handsomely disguised goblin tempts a despondent girl in "Goblin Fruit," a vengeful demon curses an innocent babe to wield a deadly voice in "Spicy Little Curses Such as These," and immortal hunters possess the unaware in "Hatchling." Each story carefully sets the stage for a perfect and deadly kiss. Campbell's charismatic narration tempts listeners to enter these dark and seductive worlds. Outstanding fantasy blended with excellent pacing and an eloquent reading deliver a compelling listening experience. J.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
