Nate Grimm has a dark tormented past but hides it well using his magic and some misdirection. Now the lead detective for the Fairytale Management Authority and dating Tess Little, Nate wants to keep his past hidden. But someone from his past wants Nate to suffer and will use who ever they can to do it. When Tess is used to being Nate to heel he will need to make a choice. Give up Fairytale and Tess forever or Tess will suffer for his transgressions. But even his enemy’s speed and brutality can’t win against the power of true love… or the extent of Nate’s fury.
I first fell in love with Kate SeRine’s wonderful fairy tale based paranormal when I was offered Along Came A Spider for review. The book impressed me so much I went back and read her backlist. SeRine’s Transplanted series offers a unique outlook on the mythology of fairytales; twisting it all into a sexy dark funny world that kept me hooked. She has brought the stories of old into the 21st century and made them one hundred percent hers and hers alone.
Grimm Consequences picks up right where Red, book one, ends. I wouldn’t recommend reading this as a stand alone as it expands upon the relationship of the protagonists from Red and introduces the premise of book three, Along Came A Spider. Well-plotted and cast with strong and personable characters, Grimm Circumstances is filled with taut suspense, delicious betrayal, dangerous antagonists, and a healthy dose of humor and romance.
Extremely character drive, Grimm Consequences gives us the backstory of Nate Grimm and how he came to be a reaper of souls. Entirely from his POV, we get a front row seat to the all pain he has endured and the sacrifices he’s made to ensure Tess stays safe. Everything Nate has ever done was for Tess and if you had any doubts about his feelings for her…this novella puts them to rest.
Action packed and conclusive, Nate uses his amazing abilities to make sure no one messes with what’s his ever again. Grimm Consequences was a wonderful endeavor to keep fans primed for the release of book four-Ever After-set to release August 1, 2014.
