Liga lives modestly in her own personal heaven, given to her by natural magic in exchange for her earthly life. Her two daughters, gentle Branza and curious Urdda, grow up in this soft world, protected from the violence, predation, and village prejudice that once harmed their mother.

But the real world cannot be denied forever - magicked men and wild bears break down the borders of Liga's refuge. Now, having known heaven, how will these three women survive in a world where beauty and brutality lie side by side?

This is a tale of journeys and transformations. From girl to witch to woman. From boy to beast to man. From hell to heaven to . . . reality.

Building her tale on a mythic scaffolding, Margo Lanagan asks timeless questions about what it is to be human. She explores the evil and the sweetness in the world and reveals the essential magic of learning to live with both. Download and start listening now!

    " Entertaining expansion of Grimm's Snow White and Rose-Red. Excellent character development, witty and unpredictable! True to human nature! 2 thumbs up! "

    " I totally respect the fact that this is a story of a girl so traumatized by horrific violence that she is granted a magic world to raise her daughters, free of the scariness that would make life unbearable (hehe...unBEARable) for her. The concept is beautiful. Through this magical world, Liga was able to find strength within the safety of her surroundings, as she raised her daughters. Eventually Liga and her daughters become part of the real world with the resilience and strength to confront life. That said, I have to admit that this book was so challenging for me to complete that I eventually bought the audiobook in order to finish it. I think this is largely because I am not a fan of fantasy fiction written in this type of language, kind of a dialect I associate with people who role play at RenFests. The voices of each character are very distinct, and this aspect of the writing encouraged my interest. The content interested me but, I found myself constantly putting the book down, which really doesn't give it justice. My only theory for why this was an issue is that I am not a fan of this genre. Therefore the content and distinct voices did not carry my enthusiasm throughout the book. I would recommend Tender Morsels to high functioning readers, age 15 and up, who have enthusiasm toward fairy tales and fantasy fiction. "

    " I some times dream of a younger me, a happy good dream, then wake to the painful realization that it was a dream and I so long to go return. Tender Morsels is a book i wanted to go on an on. The scene between Davit and Liga affected me so strongly, I groaned out loud. Urrda's magical gift to Branza at the end just broke my heart. "
