This prequel story is written as a diary entry/ letter written to Wilhelm Grimm, by the Evil Queen - Snow White's mother. In the letter she berates him for changing the true nature of the Grimm's fairy tales, explaining how they were changed to hide the fact that the fairytale characters were actually immortals living among us, and tells him how as a child Snow White would bite people and drink their blood!
Now the Evil Queen has killed Jacob Grimm, and she is searching for the `lost seven' - Snow White's friends, and believes that Peter Pan knows where they are.
This is an interesting prequel story. Written from the evil queen's perspective it gives us an insight into the world in which the main story will take place, and sets the scene for a dark fairytale retelling, in which Snow White is more vampire than princess, and the Evil Queen is only trying to stop Snow White from hurting others.
There is a lot of information in this book, and I had a hard time keeping up with it in places. I liked the world and ideas that were touched upon, although I've got no clue how Peter Pan and Neverland come into things as I don't remember those ever being associated with Grimms fairy tales!
This prequel certainly sets an interesting scene for the main book though, and is worth reading if you can download it for free.
8 out of 10.
Beauty Never Dies ( A Grimm Diaries Prequel #3 ) ( YA Paranormal ) This book contains all 3 prequels for one price!
But I did enjoy the story.
We follow the story from the birth of Snow White till the end result with an surprising twist to the story which I loved. I haven't read traditional fairy tales for a long time, but when reading Snow White Blood Red it all came back to me on how it was told, so getting to look at it from another perspective was a refreshing change. I found myself enjoying Snow White Blood Red and once it was over I needed to know what happened next, so I got hold of the next books free from amazon kindle.
The book is only about 22 pages long on my ipad so it is a quick read, but it has so much packed into a small package it doesn't actually feel like its quick. Cameron has added his own little twist to the fairy tales that we all know and love and I already can't wait for The Grimm Diaries to be released.
**I obtained a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**
I'll probably try the next novella since the copy I downloaded from amazon contains the first 4 prequels but unless there is a big improvement on this one I doubt I'll get any further than that. As it is I'm happy I downloaded this when it was a kindle freebie because I'd be cross if I'd wasted money on it.
