Book Description

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?


Warning: these Grimm Prequels are like snap shots of a magical land you're about to visit soon. I like to think of them as poisoned apples. Once you taste them, you will never see fairy tales in the same light again.



This Grimm Diaries Prequels are a number of short books in the form of epistolary diary entries. The diaries are more of teasers for the upcoming series: The Grimm Diaries, allowing you to get a glimpse of what to expect of the series. The 6 diaries are told by The Evil Queen, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, the Devil, Prince Charming, and Alice Grimm

The first book in the Series will be out in February 2013, called SNOW WHITE SORROW.



Series Description:

The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse was broken and they allowed to wake up every one hundred years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing start...needs some polish January 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like what Cameron is doing here. Really, really like it. I plan to purchase the oncoming full books and read them with gusto.

However, I have a big issue with one aspect of his writing: nearly all the voices are the same. As in, each character reasons and speaks too similarly. At one point, the Queen says "Wuteva." I highly doubt a prestigious woman would use this mumbled abbreviation. I also expected her speech (as well as two other ancient characters whom I don't want to give away) to be more complex and elegant. It's true that they're living through the centuries and will pick up new manners of speech, but my main point is that too many of the characters have the same patterns of speech.

I know Cameron has it in him to flesh out the characters better and differentiate them more. I really hope that a beta reader somewhere has pointed this out to him. It saddens me how much it detracts from the story for me and takes me out of the picture Cameron is painting.

I think that's why my favorite character so far is Ladle. She comes across almost mentally challenged at times, if not plain off her rocker. But there's something wonderful about her innocent madness! I like her voice, and I applaud Cameron.

I also have a big issue with the editor/transcriber of the book. I found so many typos and dropped words, I nearly pulled my hair out! Again, this detracts from the story, pulling me out as I try to figure out that 'form' should be 'from', 'Bur' should be 'But', or that there's a missing 'a' in a sentence which makes for stilted descriptions. Please be more watchful in the future!

I think Cameron and Danielle will go far. They're just fresh out of the gates and need some polish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series! December 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Grimm Diaries Prequels by Cameron Jace are a series of short stories to set the scene for the release of his much anticipated novel, Snow White Sorrow. In these prequels, the readers gets to see the famous fairytale characters we grew up reading about in a creative new light. Each "untold" story is from a different character's perspective and each gives us a little more information about this fantastic world Cameron created. The plots are fun and inventive, and the characters are familiar, yet new and exciting at the same time. I would definitely reccomend reading these, and at such a great price for the whole series, you can't beat it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these, kept me wanting more December 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I stumbled across these prequels in a search for fairy tales retold. From the very first prequel, Snow White Blood Red, I was hooked. Snow White Blood Red is a great entertaining read and fast. I didn'tlike Ashes to Ashes & Cinder to Cinder as much. Despite this, it is important to read it for the story building. I also loved Beauty Never Dies. Peter Pan is one of my favorite characters in these stories. Ladle Rat Rotten Hut was my least favorite. I had trouble staying with the story and felt a bit confused. Mary Mary Quite Contrary didn't hold my attention either. I'm the oddball of readers and preferred the prequels other folks didn't much care for. And lastly Blood Apples was my favorite by far. Such a take on the red apple and golden apple and the love story inside. At the end of Blood Apples another prequel is promised and let me just say I cannot wait for it to release. All of these prequels are must reads and guarentee once you are done you'll have to read Snow White Sorrow the book they are leading up to. Cameron is an author to watch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another wonder from Cameron! (6 in 1 actually) December 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first read Snow White Blood Red out of curiousity after I finished his first book of the I Am Alive series. I devoured book One of the Grimms in just under two hours and talked my husband into letting me get the rest as soon as I saw them on my kindle as available. The new releases of them in this box; I would recommend this to ANYONE who loves fairy tales, Once Upon A Time the show (and the fans of Beauty and the Beast). In fact I have already lent my Kindle to my teenage son to read since his reader won't be here till Xmas and he couldn't wait that long to read either :)
Cameron will make you question everything you thought you knew, including what children's tales we knew that are deemed fairy tales and how sometimes stories of lives become more intertwined than we realize. Can't wait for book 7 to come out so I can dig my teeth in again!

Jan 8 2013 I am ediitng my review to insert my son's review now that he has gotten through the books. He loved the plots, the twists & turns, and the dark cast to the characters. He says it is truth in advertising on the query of "What if everything you knew about fairy tales was wrong?" At 13 he is quite the avid reader and goes through books like water (and I mean books like World War Z, Patient Zero, the complete works of Mark Twain; not kiddie books) Needless to say Mr Jace has 2 diehard readers (and 1 regular fan in my husband who rarely reads) in our house & a possible one in my daughter - she is 3 but loves my son reading these out loud to her despite not liking being read things like Runaway Bunny :)

5.0 out of 5 stars You will never think of fairy tales the same way again January 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Grimm Diaries are a prequel to Cameron Jace’s Snow White Sorrow series. Each prequel is a quick little story from some fairy tale character or a member of the Grimm family. And each story explains the background of the some of the fairy tales that have been misrepresented by the brothers Grimm. I loved trying to guess of Cameron Jace was going to twist and manipulate the fairy tale stories to make them his own. It was really cool to read. Throughout the book, he also adds his notes, to give you some extra info to help make sense of some of the stories. I liked this, because it didn’t take away from the flow of the story at all, since the stories were just little snippets from different characters and were not a cohesive overall story yet.
We got to meet the “evil” queen from Snow White, also known as the Queen of Sorrow, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, a descendant of the Brothers Grimm, and Mary, who helped further explain the Queen of Sorrow. I loved all of the mini stories, and they did their job in getting me excited to reading the actual Grimm Diaries series. It looks like it is going to be so flippin’ cool! There is a war brimming, and it looks like all of your favorite fairy tale characters are going to be involved. They are all immortal and have been placed under a curse by the brothers Grimm to try and protect the world. Because of the curse, they are stuck in this dreamworld of eternal slumber. Not everything about the dream world and the curse was explained in the first 6 prequels, so I can’t wait to read the rest of them and the series to find out more about that.

Cameron Jace has a real talent for making new spins on old classics. And when he is done with them, he will have you asking just what the real version is.
