The Grimm Chronicles Volume 3 by Isabella Fontaine & Ken Brosky

The Grimm Chronicles Vol. 3 (The Grimm Chronicles #7-9)Book Description:
200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world. Literally. Now the characters of the Grimms’ stories walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them.

For 18-year-old Alice Goodenough, that means taking precious time off from her summer vacation. In addition to volunteering at the local library, Alice must stop the Corrupted who are now actively hunting her down. With the help of her magic pen and her trusty rabbit friend, the world has suddenly gotten a lot more complex. The Corrupted are everywhere, and only Alice can see them for what they truly are.

This book contains 3 episodes of the critically acclaimed series: 

Episode 7: The Giant Slayer
Episode 8: Darkness Rising
Episode 9: Malevolence

My Thoughts:
I liked these books.  Alice is a Hero.  She is also a teenage fencer and has friend and boy problems just like any other teenager.  Her problem is balancing her life with stopping the Corrupted.  The Corrupted are fairy tale creatures that are in our world and evil.  She has her rabbit friend and magic pen to help her but she is seriously out numbered.
This is a cool twist on the Grimms' tales.  I like the characters used and the back story that is told about them so you aren't having to buy the fairy tales as well to know who you are reading about.  Alice was a good character and I loved the interactions with her friends and how protective she was of them.  Each story is unique and good!  I just wish I had read the 6 prior to this books in the series so I knew more of the back story for them.  
I rate this a 4/5.  They were good stories and I want to read the others :)

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book (via My Reading Addiction Tours).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.


  1. I like how interest in fairy tales seem to be reviving. I wish there had been more YA books about when I was a teenager. This sounds like a great series.

  2. I'm going back and starting with the first one because I enjoyed these so much!
