From the Author

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. Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Katniss Everdeen, we like our female heroes tough and smart.

More About the Author

I received my MFA in fiction writing from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. I've had over a dozen short stories published, but my main focus now is Young Adult books. My previous series, The Grimm Chronicles, is an award-winning (really!) fantasy adventure series about a hero who must vanquish the monsters of Grimm's Fairy Tales.

My newest series is The Earth-X Chronicles, a YA sci-fi adventure that spans time and space. Alien ghosts, backstabbing clans, and mysterious keepers of knowledge all conspire to make this an entertaining series! I'm so excited about it that I just swallowed my gum!

This is the second Book in the Grimm Chronicles series. The first Book sets up and sells the whole premise; (Alice is a "hero" called upon to slay escaped Grimm Fairy Tale characters with a "magic pen". she is guided by and accompanied by a life size mystical/chatty Rabbit). This book starts right off without any preamble or intro. If you start here you may well conclude that the series is lightweight and dumb. It isn't, but really first off you need to be drawn in and trapped by Book One.

I like this series because I like clever and slightly irreverent Grimm variations, and I like smart, feisty, independent female protagonists. Our heroine, Alice, is certainly smart and confident. She's not a swoony romantic, but she's interested in boys. She's not snarky, but she won't be pushed around and she doesn't play clique games. She likes her parents and she isn't a mope who has a lot of imagined grievances. She's just an all around solid character. She's a little lighter in this Book, and the Rabbit is a bit chattier and funnier, and it seems like the balances of light/dark, action/talk, humor/darkness will vary from book to book, as the plots warrant. This one is on the lighter, talkier, funnier, (almost casually plotted), side.

As always, the writing is sort of in-between. It isn't middle grade simple, but it also isn't overwrought or overdone. The story telling is direct, dialogue is to the point, the patter remains snappy, (especially between Alice and her Rabbit counselor/guide), and the pacing keeps the book screaming along. This Book isn't as violent as the first one, but then again, the original Grimm stories, (and the pertinent ones are reproduced in an appendix so you can refamiliarize yourself with them), were more gruesome than this book anyway.

(cross-posted from the blog Wading Through Electronic Ink)

So I am back for the second installment of this series, The Grimm Chronicles, which promises to offer a new title every other month. Which, let's face it, is reason enough to take a look at it. At least it is for me, who reviews three books a week and still has some time to read on the side. But it's also worth checking out for anyone who thinks that stories are better when there is an invisible rabbit sidekick doing all the google searches.

I liked Happily Never After somewhat better than Prince Charming Must Die! In the first book, Alice spent a lot of time trying to figure out whether her boyfriend Edward was evil, when there was a lot of evidence that he was and no evidence that he was not. This second one features some more innovative sleuthing, including geocoding and mysterious trips to the aquarium. We also get hints of an uber-plot involving dwarves foreclosing on somewhat innocent people's homes.

There were still some parts that had me rolling my eyes. I mean, faced with dreams about a woman named Cindy who has power over rats, your average 8-year-old Disney fan could probably figure out who the villain was long before Alice did. And Alice seemed disproportionately embarrassed by her parents in a manner more reminiscent of a younger teen. There's also a chapter from Briar the rabbit's point of view in which he directly addressed the audience, and I couldn't decide whether I thought it was cute or lame.

All in all, though, The Grimm Chronicles is an entertaining series, and I am interested to see where it goes next.

This book did not disappoint. "Happily Never After" is the sequel to "Prince Charming Must Die." It continues the tale of Alice on her quest to kill the Corrupted. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not wait to see what would happen next. This book was just as good as the first. I was sad to see the book come to an end. I can't wait for the next installment!

Not as entertaining as the prequel. Sometimes boring details..to fill the space perhaps...did not like the ending at all...horrible ending.

A new spin on the Grim Fairy tales that is now becoming so popular. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
