    Grimm’s tales are dragged kicking and screaming up to modern times, as three new Story elements are added: Mean Girls, Bullies and Social Media Unfortunately, these new elements become major players in the world that the author creates, and, like certain other characters who’s names shall not be mentioned, gain power over our us simply by their retelling. The original stories were thought provoking and scary in their own right. I’m not sure it’s necessary or wise for the author and the media in general to continue to push these new topics into the social unconsciousness of acceptable behavior of modern society. It’s not that the story or the telling here is bad, it’s actually quite interesting. I just think that like many modern authors, she’s promoting the destruction of society by empowering unsuitable behavior patterns without even making commentary on it. And these new story elements are being woven with more and more force, into the world we all must live in. I would love to see authors treat these ideas as the villains that they are, and not simply accept this bad behavior as background plot devices.

    I had a situation where I did not read for a period of time, leaving the characters midstream. Yet the story line is concrete and simple enough to follow. Finishing Book 1, I was left wanting more. Not hesitating to continue the story into Book 2. Thank you
  • Amazing book 📚

    The first in this series is set with a brilliant idea and base, but it is not flawlessly executed - it can be a little lacking depth at times and it’s got some minor continuity problems. But! Stick with the series! #2 is better than #1, and #3 is better than #2, etc. Each book adds layer upon layer to the story, until there’s so much going on that getting to the ending is an emotional thrill ride. In a lot of ways, the complication and depth of the story increases as Mina matures, kind of like Jane Austen’s Emma - which is its own type of beauty. By the end of the series, you feel like you’ve grown with Mina, which is cool. I thoroughly enjoyed this series, and I hope you will too :)

    This was a fabulous connection to a series I had just finished on Amazon Prime. Love when things connect like that. Fairy tales aren't always easy and happy.....
