Which includes trying to outwit a powerful Story from making her its next fairytale victim.
To break the fairy tale curse on her family and make these deadly occurrences stop, Mina must finish the tales until the very Grimm end.
Quirky but riveting
Its a fantacy set in modern times. It made me laugh out loud in a few places, but kept me on the edge of my seat with an engaging plot & good action. I was never board. Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! When I bought it while doing my HW, as soon as I finished and put my papers away, nothing in the world could yank me away from it. I was up past 12:00 that night reading it. I swear, even if a fire started I would be stumbling to the door, tripping over everything with my eyes glued to the page! I LOVED IT!!! The one thing that was disappointing was the ending. If you made a second and third book, each containing 3 or 4 of the "fairy tales" then I would be SOOOO happy and not disappointed. I would TOTALY spend my money on the 2nd 3rd 4th and 5th if you wrote them!
The story was at best Ok, but I couldn't help but that feeling of deja vu. The overtly protective, amazingly gorgeous boy who seem unattainable (Edward/Brody). The clumsy brunette teenager who always questions how this amazing boy could like her (Bella/Mina)... Who also seem destined to be drawn into the world of the supernatural. The tanned skinned, almost scary boy who rides a black motorcycle...who also likes her and tries to protect her (Jacob/Jared). The prom scene, the wolves, etc. It all seemed like a slightly redone version of the Twilight series.
The editing need major work... from the typos to use of the wrong words ("poor a drink"... Really), it could really use some decent proofreading!,
