Standalone Re-Tellings of Fairy Tales, by Character/Story

Princess Anidori-Kildara Talianna Isilee was born with everything a girl could wish for. She was a princess, destined to inherit the throne. She possessed a unique talent for communicating with birds and her horse Falada. She even had a faithful friend in her lady-in-waiting, Selia. But circumstances change, and Ani must journey from her homeland of Kildenree to neighboring Bayern, where she has been promised in marriage to the king's son. Ani makes the best of it, finding comfort in Selia and her beloved Falada. As Ani and her party approach Bayern, she is taken by surprise, finding herself alone in a strange land where no one knows she is really a princess. She must become a goose girl in order to survive, but she holds onto the hope that one day her identity will be known and she can take her rightful place as queen.

  • The Fables series for DC Comics and its several spinoffs take traditional fairy tale and folklore characters from their fabled homeland and plonk them down into New York City (or, if they can’t blend in among humans, a farm in upstate New York). The series follows all the mystery, mischief, and mayhem these characters get into as they find their way in the modern, human world.
