Short stories are supposed to be easy reads, this one was so disjointed it made it almost impossible to keep up. Characters where mentioned when they had no need to be, a few times it flipped between past and future tense which doesn't make the reading any easier. It felt like the story had been written, and then edited out of sequence.

After finally really enjoying one of these prequels, Ladle Rat Rotten Hut, this installment was a major disappointment.
The editing is no longer a cause of frustration. But the story itself was.
It was mostly told, not shown. So I couldn't really connect with any of these characters. They were all kept at a distance, and even though this was the darkest of the prequels, I could have cared less about finishing this one, even though it was only about 29 pages.
I once again struggled with the dialogue. I just couldn't connect it with the characters. Here is an example:
"How come I don't know about that stuff? I am freakin' Lucifer."
"Because you spent your time hatin' not participatin'" Rumpelstiltskin said. *
No.... Just No.....
Unfortunately, this is very likely the last review I will write on the Grimm series, because it is very likely the last one I will read.
I sincerely thank the author for his generosity in extending the free promotional news my way.
Though I recognize the originality, the execution of it is just not calling out to me to continue any further.
It is time for me to move on.
