The Grimm Chronicles Review and Giveaway



Summary

The Grimm Chronicles, Vol. 1

200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world. Literally. Now the characters of the Grimms’ stories walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them. For 18-year-old Alice Goodenough, that means taking precious time off from her summer vacation. In addition to volunteering at the local library, Alice must stop the Corrupted who are now actively hunting her down. With the help of her magic pen and her trusty rabbit friend, the world has suddenly gotten a lot more complex. The Corrupted are everywhere, and only Alice can see them for what they truly are. This book contains the first 3 episodes of the critically acclaimed series: 

Episode 1: Prince Charming Must Die!
Episode 2: Happily Never After
Episode 3: Revenge of the Castle Cats

The Grimm Chronicles is intended for Young Adults aged 13 and up. The goal is to provide Young Adult readers with a strong, charismatic young woman in the role of the hero and provide readers with a positive protagonist who uses her brain to overcome obstacles life throws in her way.

My Reveiw

Evil fairy tales and a hero who's job it is to rid the world of them. Can you think of a cooler story? I can't! I love fairy tales, all and any variation of fairy tales. Alice comes into her role of hero quite accidentally when she goes down to the basement of the library where she volunteers. She finds herself paired up with Briar Rabbit as her knowledgable and trusty sidekick. Alice is sassy, smart and strong and I loved her character. Briar is kind and comical and makes the perfect sidekick and helper for Alice. The first three volumes in this book move quickly and there's not a lot of fluff or wasted  words. This book made me curious again about the old fairy tales so of course I had to go and download the Grimm's Fairy Tales lol. I'm very excited to see the next volumes of this story and I can't wait to see what comes next!!


Ken Brosky received his MFA in writing from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and lives in Madison, MI.

This is her first Young Adult series. She once read through
the entire dictionary because she wanted to know more about words!
