Synopsis: Do you like to Dance with Danger? Well now's your chance!

Don't worry about things that go bump in the night; count yourself lucky if these fae give you that much warning. In the finest tradition of the original Bad-Ass Faeries, the twenty tales in this collection delve into the darkest corners, exploring every tough and terrifying aspect the legends of faeries ever claimed...and then some.

Lose yourself in twisted tales of homicidal faerie clowns, one man's gladiatorial stand against Earth's overlords, and a desperate mother's confrontation with the fiercest pirates above the Seven Seas...not to mention dry land. Read on in fascinated horror as a faerwolf is born, and unwise parties-of-the-second-part come to rue deals made with a different kind of devil. Here is where you discover just how many faerie tales never even get a glimpse of Happily Ever After...

Forget about misunderstood; these faeries are Just Plain Bad!


Review: “Bad-Ass Faeries 2: Just Plain Bad” is a collection of short stories which fall under the categories of either ‘Rebel Fae’, ‘Rogue Fae’, ‘Shadow Fae’, and ‘Enforcer Fae’. I enjoyed all of the stories and I think it’s a good idea to read them in order, even though they have no continuing thread. The stories are written in a style which is reminiscent of the original Grimm’s Fairy Tales – dark and dangerous! I couldn’t pick out a favorite from the stories; they’re all deliciously bad-ass in different ways. Check out “Bad-Ass Faeries 2: Just Plain Bad” and while you’re at it, pick up the first collection, “Bad-Ass Faeries”!

Bad-Ass Faeries Series: Bad-Ass Faeries (1), Just Plain Bad (2), In All Their Glory (3)
