    Arc provided by Patchwork Press Through Netgalley The positives_Girl PowerThis story has two very determined kick ass, intelligent characters in both Andie and Quinn._ No to stereotypes Quinn has Indian roots, and can be seen _ I am telling you this in a very simplistic manner, because the author ends up having a surprise for us readers _ as some sort of modern Rapunzel. So no golden locks for Quinn! :)_ No to the tormented and brooding male charactersDylan and Frederick, are respectively the funny "wisecrack" and the sweet guy who gets constantly embarrassed._There's no love triangles: Thank you Baby Jesus!_Originality of the Plot: Let's say that it goes places you're not expecting it to go! o_OSo _once again _ the author gets an A+ for creativity. The execution however _especially towards the end _ led me to feel at times, as if I was reading an episode from "Lost".And no, I was not a big fan of the series, especially towards the end.Basically with this story, most times I couldn't see what I was reading, and I needed more explanations to understand what was going on!The negative:So, like I said, when it comes to the writing style this story turned out somewhat difficult for me to "follow".The phrases felt a little like they were being dumped on top of each other, which managed to undermine all the descriptions that the author was giving us. At least, that's what I felt.Here's an example:"The wheezing stopped, (spoiler) body relaxed, (spoiler) staring unseeing into the bright noonday sun. Max reached out a hand and closed (spoiler).Max helped Quinn drag Andi to the pillar where they propped her up and Quinn got to work bandaging her. Dylan seemed torn between running away from the bloody proceedings and not wanting Andi out of his sight."This doesn't work for me.This doesn't allow for a proper reading flow. It..stalls.For me, in order for a sentence or phrase to work, the writing can't be so clinical or analytical. But that's me.Reading this felt a little like watching a movie in fast speed. I could see that it had the foundations to be "a good movie", but I couldn't really appreciate it.Also I am not a big fan of small chapters, and I could pass without chapter titles ...Bottom Line: An imaginative and fast paced adventure, that I am sure will be better appreciated by younger readers.

    Read all my reviews on Sometimes they say, if you've read one you've read them all...I wasn't really enthusiastic about the first book, A Grimm Legacy in this series, but since I already had an ARC for the second book in the series, I wanted to give this book a chance. Unfortunately it suffered from the same problems as the first book. Reading them almost back to back probably didn't help, as near the end I was quite fed up with the story, even though these are relatively short books.I still liked the idea of mashing up all the fairy tales and introducing readers to lesser known fairy tales, but that's about it. I still didn't care for the characters, or the plot, really. They felt very interchangeable. There's a bit more world building, but not enough to answer the questions I had. The writing isn't that good either, or at least it wasn't a style I particularly liked.I think some people might enjoy this series as 'snackbooks'* but for me it wasn't working. Any more books in this series, I think I will pass on them.Grimm Memories is the second book in the Grimm Tales series. The first book in A Grimm Legacy.Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!*Snackbook: An easy book to enjoy without needing to think to much. =)

    Grimm Memories picks up about 6 months after Andi, Quinn, Dylan, and Fredrick escape and get back home from Elorium. The four friends have been back with their families, but continue to talk to each other daily. They managed to talk their families into letting them all go to Andi's house over spring break.Even with over protective parents, the group manages to find a way back to Elorium. This time, on purpose, to try to rescue Jack and bring him home. When they get there, Elorium is not how they left it. Jack and many of the others have disappeared. The citizens are panicking and there are so many rumors, no one knows what is really going on. Despite everything, they are determined to rescue Jack!This book was SO much better than the first one! Grimm Memories is action packed and full of surprises! I could not put this book down, I just had to know what was happening next! There was not a dull moment in this book. It was much more fast paced than Grimm Legacy. I'm not sure why, but I wasn't expecting this to be so good, so maybe that plays into my feelings of it. Regardless, this book was awesome! So many fantasy aspects, that all went so well together! The ending left off at a good spot for another book, which I am really hoping for! *I received an advance copy from NetGalley in return for a honest review

    I want to say thank you to Patchwork Press and Netgalley for letting me read this book. Wow is the only thing I can say about this book. It was really good. I felt like everything came together in this book. Things made more sense and didn't really confuse me as much as the last book did. I really loved this book. This book left me wanting more. I wasn't so sure if I wanted to continue this series at the end of the last book but I loved it. The idea of this story is different from most fairy tales in so many ways. I love how this story I can't say there is other stories with this plot. I loved it. I hope there is more coming from this series.

    The nightmares were getting worse, plaguing her more and more over the last six months. Images, sharp and vivid as a recent memory, invaded her dreams until the lines of reality melted together.(spoilers below for A Grimm Legacy)Thoughts:“Far off places, daring sword fights, magic spells, a prince in disguise!”If you’re a fan of Beauty and the Beast you’ll recognize that line from the opening song. It’s the line that kept playing in my head while reading The Grimm Tales series by Janna Jennings.Grimm Memories, the sequel to A Grimm Legacy, picks up six months after Andi and her friends escape Elorium. The group devises a plan to return to the fairy-tale world after Andi and Dylan begin having strange nightmares. Frederick is determined to rescue his grandfather, Jack, who they were forced to leave behind during their escape. But when the teenagers return to Elorium, they find things a lot stranger than they had left them.Our four heroes and heroines have changed a bit since we last saw them, although their distinct personalities remain intact. Frederick, Andi, and Quinn are still stubborn in their own ways, but they return to Elorium prepared to fight, both physically and mentally. Dylan, in an appropriate fashion, didn’t even bother to brush up on his knowledge of fairy-tales before deciding to come back to Elorium, something that Quinn hilariously calls him out on more than once.While our group of fairy-tale descendants are back and better than ever, the world of Elorium has changed for the worse. Houses have been destroyed and left destitute and many Elorians have mysteriously disappeared. Grimm Memories is a lot darker than A Grimm Legacy. The nightmares that Dylan and Andi suffer through every night are haunting, and the new creatures and story book characters the group encounters during their second visit to Elorium are more dangerous and unfriendly than before. This added so much suspense which I thoroughly enjoyed. There are several scenes in this novel where Andi and her friends’ lives are in peril and often people were gravely injured. Suffice it to say that the suspense was killing me during several of the more intense chapters!The novel’s resolution is sweet and well-done. Some of my lingering questions were answered (always a plus), and while I don’t think there are plans for a third book, there is an epilogue at the end that leaves us with a bit of a cliffhanger, so who knows? :)Also…once again, I adored this book cover! So pretty!Read This Book If…:…you’ve already finished A Grimm Legacy (this is not a stand-alone novel)…you’re intrigued by darker fairy-tale characters…you’re in the mood for a good suspense novel…you like happy endings :)Final MusingsAs much as I enjoyed the first Grimm Tales book, I liked the second one ever more! There was more action, more mystery & suspense, and more adventures with the characters I’ve come to love. Grimm Memories deals with sacrifice, love, and friendship, and it is full of surprises in every chapter! If you like reading stories that can make you laugh, swoon, and bite your nails, this book is for you!

    Andi, Quinn, Fredrick, and Dylan return to Elorium in this second installment in Jennings’s Grimm Tales series, but this time, voluntarily. Their goal is to rescue Jack, Fredrick’s grandfather, but the world they fall into isn’t exactly the same as the one they left behind. Some characters have died, some have gone missing, and the deeper the characters delve into Elorium, the more they realize that something’s gone wrong. Not that two of them couldn’t tell that something was up — Andi and Dylan began to experience terrifyingly unsettling nightmares that evoke feelings that often linger past the moment they awake. Are those nightmares linked to the strange events in Elorium?So this book has a lot of answers that I didn’t even know I wanted to have after the first book. You find out a lot about the past of secondary characters, and I really liked how Jennings brought these minor characters back so we get to see what became of them. There were many new characters, however, and they were all delights. Once again, the author’s use of tropes from the Grimm Fairy Tales was done beautifully — although I did miss Cinderella — and makes me really regret not picking up a copy of the original tales to get acquainted with them.I found that the balance between the characters was perfect, and a vast improvement from the first book. Everyone got their moments to shine, and I could finally gain insight in their own personalities. Great character development, especially on Fredrick’s part. I also liked the involvement of Quinn’s brother (Max), despite early doubts.Why four stars if it’s so good? In my review of the first book, I complained that the novel felt disjointed, and I still have that feeling. There were some sentences and entire paragraphs that could’ve been improved to flow better. At this point, I wonder if it might just be the author’s style that clashes with personal preference, but I hate having to back up in a book because I fear I missed something.Overall, it was a great improvement from the first book. The character development, plot, lovely balance of genres (there’s romance and it’s well done!! No love triangles! Slow build up! Finally someone who does it well! Not to spoil anything, but there’s a kiss in there, and I squealed!), were all improved in this second volume.To be honest, I hadn’t expected to read past the second book (since I had received both at the same time), but I found myself searching whether or not there was a third book. I was delighted to find that we’ll be gifted with a third and a fourth tome of this series. I want to keep reading about those characters, and hopefully by then I will have better knowledge of the Grimm Fairy Tales.Go read it, guys. You’ll like it.I’d like to thank Netgalley, as well as Patchwork Press, for the free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Please note that this review is more useful and non-spoilery if you have read A Grimm Legacy prior to reading this review.I like Grimm Memories more than the first book, A Grimm Legacy. Maybe this is because I feel 'closer' to the dynamic quadro as I like to call them on my head-Andi, Quinn, Dylan and Frederick. All four characters have evolved in different ways and became more lovable to me during the course of Grimm Memories. I relish the fact that, much like the first book, the girls are not stuck on their 'helpless princess that need saving' roles. Inversely, the same principle is applied to the boys- instead of being the only ones depicted as heroes, they are also depicted as people who needs saving once in a while but who also does the saving when they are needed.Grimm Memories has short chapters and creative chapter titles taken from lines in the chapter. I like that. Many times, they made me curious enough to continue a chapter just to find out why that line was said instead of closing the book down for a while. Bottomline, the chapter titles are a nice touch and the most interesting ones were picked. Kudos :)The romantic love angle between the characters is cute, haha.The characters involve complement each other and they don't alienate the other two. The love angle isn't serious enough to warrant parental advisories but it's sweet enough to put a smile to a reader's face. :)What makes me delete two stars from my rating is the fact that I felt "lost" in the story many times. There were times when I didn't know what the hell was happening, haha. :( It's either because I have a very short-span memory or the scenes were hard to fully comprehend. Sometimes some scenes were too well-described, sometimes they lacked further explanations. Also, some explanations for the events that eventually unravel came at me from places I would never have expected.That's a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it, haha.The ending is more than okay. If there is no next book, it's okay because I feel like the tale is already concluded . However, there's enough room for the next few books because the plot is very unique and accomodating-the author can write 100 more books in the series if she wants to, haha! :)Overall, I like this book. It can do with a bit more tweaking but it's okay the way it is right now. I hope I will get to read the next book in the series. Many thanks to Netgalley for providing me with a free review copy of this book.

    After the adventure-packed first book that romped merrily through the Grimm tales, you might be forgiven for expecting more of the same in this book. However, rather than falling back on the formula that worked so well in the last story, this time things are a little different. Oh, the four friends are reunited, but this time they’re choosing to head back to Elorium on a rescue mission, but the world they encountered last time has changed.There are still plenty of hints and tweaks taken from the Brothers Grimm, but there are no familiar fairytales to be reenacted here. Instead Andi, Quinn, Dylan and Frederick – along with a jealous songbird, a stowaway and an unconvincing damsel – are looking for Jack in a world that seems to be falling apart. There are dwarves who don’t want to mine anymore, nightmares that wake their dreamers screaming, people who vanish in the night and mysterious black birds that steal them away. Whatever Quinn and co thought they knew about Elorium, doesn’t seem to apply anymore.Which is great, because it means we get to see new sides to the characters – and Quinn gets to do a whole lot more rescuing this time! I’m relieved, because in the last book she was the one frequently in trouble, which didn’t fit her personality at all. This time she’s much more capable, while Andi and Frederick seem to be fighting over which of them is the most heroic. We get to know Dylan a little better this time around too, and I love his sarcastic/teasing/bickering relationship with Andi, even if I was waiting the whole time for them to just get together. Quinn and Frederick are all very well, but Andi/Dylan are my favourite pairing.Then there are all the adventures that these friends seem fated to stumble into, from seemingly innocuous strolls along the beach ending in rock climbing and fighting, to a mysterious island full of… well, interesting stuff. I kept telling myself I’d read the next chapter then stop, or maybe one chapter more, or maybe the next, until I finished the whole thing. It’s every bit as fast-paced, fun and compelling as the first book. Perhaps even more so because there weren’t any familiar fairytales to follow towards a more predictable ending. I liked it even more than the first.(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)

    Last year, I reviewed A Grimm Legacy and really liked it. Soon after, the author offered me a review copy of the sequel, which I naturally accepted. But, because it was in PDF and iBooks, I totally forgot about it until today. So embarrassing, or as we say in Singlish, so paiseh. Since I had to go and teach today (part time job), I managed to finish the book while making my way there and back! So, Grimm Memories, being the sequel, takes place about half a year later. The four are reunited, and because Andi and Dylan are having strange dreams, they sneak back to Elorium, aka fairy-tale world. Only this time, Quinn's brother manages to come along (he was sent to make sure she didn't go back to Elorium. I guess he failed pretty badly). But the Elorium they go back to is in turmoil. What is happening? That's what the four has to find out. Characters from the first book make their appearance, as do new characters, and the plot twists and turns in very unexpected ways. I must say, I don't quite understand the ending - how did they figure out things so neatly? Then again, I should add that I was rushing through the book in order to find out what happened, so I may have missed some pertinent detail. Apart from that, I really don't have any complaints about the book. If you've read the first book, you'll adore how the characters and their relationships with each other continue to grow. I hope that if there are future books, we get to see him in normal earth a little more - I'd like to know how this experience has changed how they interact with others. There are hints here, and if they're developed, it could be a really interesting story. To be honest, I'm not sure which book I like better. The first book referenced many, many fairy-tales, while this book has more original ideas. It really all goes down to personal preference, but if you enjoyed the first book, you'll probably enjoy this one too.

    Grimm Memories by Janna Jennings is the second book in the Grimm Tales series. This young adult series is best read in order, jumping in here might work for some, but I think knowing the background is key to fully enjoying this book. It has been six months since Quinn and her friends returned home after barely escaping Elorium in A Grimm Legacy. However, 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 it is becoming increasingly difficult to discover who is an ally. Grimm Memories started off slowly, which worked for me. It gives readers a chance to remember the details about the characters and their connections as they fall back into the world of the series. I really enjoyed that the characters continued to grow, and that we get to know Andi, Quinn, Frederick, and Dylan all over again. The changes in Elorium are more drastic than one might expect after a six month absence, but with Andi and Dylan having horrible nightmares they are not surprised that things are not all sunshine and roses. Others are having nightmares, and people are vanishing. When they start trying to solve the mystery behind the missing people they are drawn into a conflict that is as unexpected as it is vast. The secrets behind Elorium’s origins and the true horrors of Herrchen’s schemes come to light. While all of this is going on, Andi and Dylan continue in their teasing ways, Fredrick and Quinn continue to be adorable in their awkwardness. They all hit some series growth, and the female characters (including newly met side characters) are all strong and determined women. Grimm Memories continues the series with strong characters, high action, and surprises. I greatly enjoyed the book and think that young adults and adults alike can enjoy this series.

    the gang of four teenagers-frederick, quinn, andi and dylan- are back and fun as ever. Frederick is looking to save Jack while Andi and Dylan are having nightmares that pull them from reality and are getting harder and harder to pull themselves out of. so what is in order? Another trip to Elorium of course. This time the meet the seven dwarves who no longer like mining and one is having nightmares, the twelve huntsmen only there are thirteen and one is having nightmares and Quinn's brother Max is along for the ride.While in elorium they see things aren't the same. It's more dark and dreadful. Andi and Dylan still razz each other and like each other but don't do anything about it. Frederick still likes quinn and she likes him but he is too shy that is until the end. So cute those two. Meanwhile Max is complaining and giving Frederick the protective evil eye as they go from one adventure that Andi gets them into to the next. Soon they are face to face with Herrchen again and boy is that a treat.The characters are as likeable and engaging as they were in the first in the series except now they volunteer to enter Elorium. Dylan is as fun loving and sweet. Frederick as shy and protective of Quinn. Andi as daring and stubborn and Quinn is the logical one. even Max meets someone but is disappointed in the end sadly by her. The writing has you engaged in their tales from the beginning as again we get this great twist on our fairy tales but now with some darker dangerous things going on. As you read the twist you feel bad for the characters that felt this was their only way out. I loved the ending how Frederick and Quinn are together, Dylan and Andi on their way, Jack with a new beginning, and harland with his resort. And the little open door to mystery about the man with no memory in the docs office. This is a gateway to more adventure and danger.A fun fast paced story that has you engaged from the beginning with the new darker twist to the grimm fairy tales we know and love.

    Last year I reviewed A Grimm Legacy and said at the time I expected a sequel. Well here it is, set six months after the end of the first book and sees the four teenagers, Andi, Dylan, Quinn and Frederick return to the land of Elorium, home to the characters brought to life in Grimm's Fairy Tales.As in the previous book the four youngsters are all well written characters, the girls, Andi and Quinn more than hold their own physically, are bright and brave yet still argumentative, rash and proud, Jennings allows them to make mistakes. Likewise the boys, Dylan and Frederick are by turn brave, resilient, funny and awkward. In short they are believable. Elorium too is a believable place. I'm a sucker for fantasy land - call it Narnia Syndrome - and Elorium is right up my street, it is the sort of place you wish existed despite the dangers than may lurk there.And dangers do indeed lurk in Elorium, the nightmares Andi and Dylan have been experiencing that cause them to return to the land they just managed to escape from are quite harrowing and the eventual reason they experience them even more so. Grimm Memories is certainly a dark read at times, however, this well crafted story still retains a sense of humour and fun, it's still a book that middle grade as well as young adults will enjoy. My one criticism of the previous book was I felt the antagonist wasn't fully explored, he again doesn't make an appearance until quite late in this book but this time it works. We learn more about his past and his motives, he feels far more rounded and so a more interesting character. I enjoyed A Grimm Legacy but I enjoyed Grimm Memories more, the plot feels fresher and more original. There is actually less here from the original tales than in the first book but the little touches work well. I'm not sure if there will be another book in the series, the ending could be final but I believe there are still enough loose endings to mean a further return to Elorium. I'll certainly be reading it if there is.Thanks to the author for my arc of Grimm Memories in return for my honest review.

    Special thanks to the author for sending me a copy of the bookSixth months after the first book in the Grimm Tales series ended, Andi and Dylan are experiencing nightmares, which prompt them to return to Elorium. Grimm Memories follows their journey back to the magical world along with Fredrick, Quinn and her brother Max. With the intention of rescuing Fredrick’s grandfather, the five teenagers find themselves in danger in a world that is coming apart at the seams. It is no longer the fairy-tale realm that they got stuck in before, but what is it that is causing these changes?Once again Janna Jennings produces an exciting story using fairytales as inspiration. As well as well known stories such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves there are plenty of references to the lesser-known tales collected by the Brother’s Grimm. However in this novel the focus is less on the stories themselves and more on the magical world itself – it’s creation and purpose. In comparison to A Grimm Legacy, the sequel has a darker nature with a more sinister theme. As a result there was a lot more violent action than in the previous novel. This, however, is by no means a negative thing. The reader is kept on their toes as the plot twists and turns from beginning to end.It is great to witness the characters develop over the course of both novels. They are all a lot more confident in themselves and have a strong friendship bond – with some characters becoming even closer than that!Overall I preferred Grimm Memories to the first book. It helped to already know the characters and the setting as it meant that there was no need for much introduction and the story could begin straight away without any confusion. Some people may be put off by the darker content but I felt this helped emphasize the changes within the characters and their maturity, as they are, after all, nearly adults. Make sure you have read the previous book in order to understand the storyline before beginning on this fantastic sequel!

    I received this from Netgalley for an honest review. Publisher: Patchwork Press. Title is available!This story had many flaws that were impossible for me to ignore. I didn't like the writing style and the changing view perspectives. It happened too often and left me feeling lost and not sure who's perspective I was reading at times. I have to say that honestly, I skim read the whole first and middle half, so this book could be amazing, I just didn't take the time to care.The characters were as charming as ever and as brave as ever. You learn quite a few new things about the characters of Elorium."Harland closed the distance to Cob, but still didn't touch him. "My name is Andrew Erickson. In 1903, I was in a mining accident that left me crippled. I wallowed in self-pity and grief for months before a man approached me with an offer." Harland paused and swallowed hard before going on, his vioce dertermined. "He said he could make me whole again. He said I wouldn't even remember the accident." Harland passed a hand over his eyes. "I left my wife and infant son that day," and then lapsed into silence like he was waiting for judgment to be passed. Cob studied his face a moment before extending his hand and grasping Harland's. "Nelson Rawson. Cowardly drunk. I thought it would be easier to exchange my life for another than to sober up."I'm not sure if I will continue on with this series but for people who like to read adaptations of The Grimm Fairy Tales this is a good one.

    Once again, fabulous story, but, sadly, the writing needed some help. I really did love the plot - it is fun and imaginative and has action and romance and fairy tales and fun. However, it just makes me sad that there were so many errors in the book. There were plot and writing errors as well as editing errors. Since I got a free copy from Netgalley, I can only hope that the editing errors were corrected before it was put in a sellable form. One example that stands out to me is that at the beginning of the book, when they leave the house on Andi's horses - which she just plans to leave alone in the woods, which is irresponsible for a horse owner, and her mother questions why she is putting Max on a horse named Gremlin, Andi replies that "this one has a loose shoe" - calling one of her horses "this one". She should be calling it by name - not just "this one". There are quite a few other details that are either left out or are just "off". I did enjoy the story, which continues 6 months after the 4 teens return from Elorium and they have a reunion at Andi's house, now including Quinn's brother Max. They return to Elorium due to disturbing dreams that Dylan and Andi have been having and to try to bring Frederick's grandfather back with them. They have quite an adventure and the story really is quite good. I do think it could have been better though.

    I really loved this book so much it was so full of action and adventure. And so freaking fun to read.I love books that you just want to keep reading until your finished and than you want to start the book all over again. if your like me than you'll want to go right away and get this book and start reading it right away. But first please finish reading my review. I couldn't believe all that happened in this awesome book. Wow I really loved the ending of this book and thought that it really had to go the way that it did. People need to understand what happens when they try to play God. And the ending makes you really want to have the next book right away. And makes you upset that it isn't out yet but excited that when its time to come that you'll have the chance to see what happens next. I loved the characters of Iris, Yellow, and Indigo. And I like Abe more in this book, and can't wait to see what happens next between him and Iris. And how Iris will fix what happened at the end of the book. Really can't wait for the third book in the series. Am positive that where in for a hell of action and adventure, and I for one can't freaking wait.

    Andi, Quinn, Dylan and Frederick are back in the real world after their adventures in Elorium. They starting having nightmares and decide it is time to go back and try to rescue Jack. Quinn's brother Max gets sucked along for the ride. Elorium is not how they left it though. People are disappearing and others are having nightmares as well. This just makes the gang that much more determined to find Jack and figure out what is going on. There is a lot of adventure and excitement, a couple of people almost die, and there are a few other fairytales added to the mix. I liked this second book in the Grimm Tales series. The story seemed a bit more cohesive than the first as we didn't have to introduce characters and their stories all over again. There is plenty of action and intrigue as the group travels across Elorium to find Jack. I enjoyed the developing relationships between the boys and girls and the fact that the girls were awesome. Andi and Quinn pretty much ruled the adventure. They showed that girls can be smart, prepared and kick-butt as well. Thanks to Netgalley for letting me read this book!

    I got this book as a review copy from Janna Jennings herself! I reviewed the first one for Netgalley. The first one was okay, but I really liked this one! I was apprehensive at first because I thought it would be more of a retelling like the first one. It wasn't and I was so happy we were able to find out more about Herrechen and what was going on in Elium. I was definitely more invested in the MCs and some of the smaller characters this time around. I was happy with how it ended and was even a little teary eyed during some of it. This definitely makes me more excited to start reading the novella I have. Thanks again to Janna for letting me read this!

    Received from: Patchwork PressReceived Via: THE REVIEWWhy this book?After reading A Grimm Legacy I thought i'll check out the sequelWhat I thoughtThis book lacked what I liked about Grimm Legacy the fairy tales,but I did enjoy it.Andi and Dylan are my favorites and I just wanted them to kiss the whole book. I just love the banter between the two. With that said this had a interesting premise that kept me interested until the end.Overall it was a good read, that I recommend

    This sequel is a great read. Fun and witty, this adventure heads back to Elorium with the great cast of characters: Quinn, Andi, Frederick, Dylan, and making the journey for the first time-Quinn's brother, Max. They set out to save Jack, but find themselves in a quest to save all of Elorium. Plagued by night,ares, sea nymphs, and injuries, the group must find a way to fight Elorium's creator. With strong females and lots of action, this book is exciting and a rollicking read.

    Even though I was a participating editor on this project, I don't think my opinion is biased when I say this novel is amazingly well written and developed. Jennings knows her characters and her world well, and I am proud of this book! Filled with immense imagination and humor, Grimm Memories is a sequel you won't want to put down.

    I really enjoyed this book. Though again, this series reads more like a middle grade than YA, it was fun, adventurous and I loved how the author explained Elorium off and its inhabitants. I'll definitely look for the next book.

    Slightly predictable but I loved every second of it. A wonderful continuation of the first book!

    This book is wonderfully creative and well plotted. Sometimes with fantasy books I find it hard to visualize the author's creations, but Janna Jennings brings her magical world crisply to life!

    I wasn't a huge fan of the first book and only read this one because I was hoping it would come out swinging and revive itself. The plot sounds so good but sadly it falls short like the first one. If I had not been provided and ARC I would have left it behind and i"m not a huge fan of starting a series and not knowing how it ends. For me the characters were okay could have been a lot worse but there is just no flow to the story. I like to create a movie in my head when reading but with this is was really hard to do.
