From New York Times bestselling author Chanda Hahn comes a new supernatural mystery series. A thrilling combination of Nancy Drew and the Vampire Academy.
Seventeen-year-old Everly Hart became a "griever" the day she witnessed a tragic death. Imbued with a second sight, she can now see what others cannot—supernatural creatures called grimms.
Then she receives an invitation from the Grimm Society to attend Gravemark, an exclusive school where grievers are trained to track and reap grimms. Everly thought navigating high school and dating was tough, but now her school assignments can kill her.
As victims pile up, Everly must put her investigative skills to the test and hunt the latest grimm serial killer, proving that not all princes are charming, and not all fairy tales have happy endings.
Can Everly solve the case, or will she be the latest griever to become grimm bait?
Over a decade ago, I stumbled across a free book in the iBook store called UnEnchanted. The cover looked neat so I downloaded it and started to read. What I didn’t know is that Chanda Hahn would become one of my favourite authors and that would still be one of the best series I ever read. So when I realized we were stepping back into the world and lore created back then, I was over the moon.
Everly is the daughter of a homicide detective and her upbringing has been influenced by her father’s career. Escape rooms have nothing on being handcuffed in a basement with only your wits and training to escape. Games of “Guess how they died” and lessons about defence, trusting your gut, and reading people are par for the course when your father sees the worst of the world at work.
After a tragedy, Everly inherits the second sight needed to become a Griever and is invited to join the local private school Gravemark. There she meets others like her who have the sight and hunt the creatures that stalk the human world called Grimms. But a local case where people are being mauled to death by a “wild animal” along with some strange things at Gravemark have Everly’s instincts telling her something isn’t exactly what it seems.
