Book: Grimm Memories Series: Grimm Tales #2 Author: Janna Jennings Date of Publication: October 26, 2014 Publisher: Patchwork Press Source: NetGalley Rating: 5/5 Beans
It has been six months since Quinn and her friends returned home after barely escaping Elorium—but no one ever really leaves the world where fairy tales are born. Not a day has gone by where they haven’t thought about returning to save Jack. Even their dreams are urging them to return to the strange world.
Falling back into the fairy tale world, they find the situation even more dire than the way they left it. Jack has disappeared, and he’s not the only one. Elorium’s citizens are near panic as characters are missing and rumors are spreading about massive creatures roaming the sky. A rising darkness is enslaving the dreamers, and in a land filled with water nymphs and malevolent mazes, it’s hard to find any allies.
Despite the risks of their rescue mission, Fredrick is determined to bring back his grandfather, no matter how personal the cost.
Janna Jennings has done it again, this time returning us to a world of Grimm’s Fairy Tales (literally) in search of answers. These answers were a bit unexpected, at least for me. The story itself was gripping, fun, and humorous, while the characters, especially our four main characters: Andi, Quinn, Fredrick, and Dylan. These four really fell into place as members of a team and it was neat to see how much closer they got. I am trying to not give too much away in hopes that you will all take the hint and read this delightful series!
The story was a bit predictable for my taste as time but I really enjoyed every moment of it. It was pack full of action and delightful surprises from beginning to the end, holding my attention throughout without waiver. After looking up on the website, I’ve learned that there will be four (?) books in this series and I honestly can not wait to get my hands on the next one that she comes out with, because the way this one ended just asked for there to be more!
Thank you to Patchwork Press through NetGalley for the ARC. I loved this book, despite it being slightly predictable at a few points and confidently give it 5 of 5 beans.
