The Grimm Chronicles Review & Giveaway


This is my stop for The Grimm Chronicles book tour presented by Innovative Online Book Tours. My post will feature a review of the book, and a giveaway.

Title: The Grimm Chronicles
Author: Isabella Fontaine & Ken Brosky
Buy Link: Amazon
Rating: 4/5

The Grimm Chronicles is a refreshing set of books that were a great read. The books revolve around Alice Goodenough, a high school student that volunteers at the library during Summer. Alice finds out she is the hero that fights againts the Corrupted. The Corrupted are characters that the Brothers Grimm wrote about and came to life. With Briar Rabbit at her side, she has information and the back up she needs.

The characters are ones we all know, but they have a twist since they are Corrupted which makes the story unique. A few that make appearances are Prince Charming, Cinderella, Frog Prince and quite a few more. Each story leads into the next so make sure to read the books in order. The 3rd Episode was a little bit different from the rest. A Corrupted actively seeks out Alice, and her life quickly changes. All in all the books were excellent, I recommend them and will be on the lookout for more.

BLURB:
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 

Additional features for the print edition: 
- An introduction 
- Two special “Lost Diaries” 
- A behind-the-scenes interview

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.
