I really liked the whole concept behind this book:the characters from The Grimm Chronicles coming to life and living in our world now. The big catch is that the longer they live in our world, the more "Corrupted"...evil, they become. Main character, Alice, is a spunky protagonist who takes on her job as "The Hero" with full gusto. Whether she is battling Prince Charming or The Frog Prince, she doesn't give up in a dire situation. Her side-kick is Brier Rabbit. He was sent to guide Alice, in her new role as "The Hero" who is meant to destroy the Grimm characters and send them back to where they belong.
This book is definitely written for the older teen crowd. There are violent scenes, some gruesome discoveries, and course language. Even with the protagonist being a teen female, this book can be read and enjoyed by adults. This is volume 1, and I will be reviewing volume 2 in a few weeks. The ending is very exciting. This book is well written, and kept me glued to the story.
