Amazon Book Description:
I received a copy of this book for free on Netgalley.
I very much enjoy all the modern takes on fairy tales that have come out over the last year. A Grimm Legacy is one such retelling. A Grimm Legacy tells the story of Andi, Quinn, Fredrick and Dylan, four teenagers going about their day, when they are unexpectedly sucked into Elorium, another world, where fairy tales are real life.
The plot was very different from all of the other fairy telling retellings that I've read. The lead characters are all unique individuals with their own quirks and interests, without being too contrived. They band together to try to get home from Elorium to their real lives and along the way become fast friends. Their is mild romantic interest but it doesn't make up the bulk of the book and isn't insta-love, so I like that.
I like that the book focuses on some of the more obscure Grimm's fairy tales as well as the ones most people are familiar with. This made the book very interesting to me. The book was also a very fast read. It was over 300 pages but I devoured it in day or so.
I've already started the second book and I find it just as interesting as this one. This book is only $3.99 for Amazon Kindle but you can also get it in paper back. If you love fairytale retellings, be sure to check this one out.
