I'm a big Grimm fan so I'm aware already of the Grimm Fairy Tales being turned into modern day and this follows the same suit. Mina is unaware that she needs to break the Grimm curse and when she does find out it all gets complicated because of a boy! Of course it does, they always complicate things!
I read this in one sitting and it's an ok read, I wasn't impressed with the overall read. The excitement factor was missing and the story did just plod along and then by the end I still wanted to read the next part but I hope it's better than this one. The characters were a bit boring and I didn't really feel any concern for Mina or any feelings really.
Definitely more based at the teen years but I will read #2 as I want to know how this ends. But I hope it has been edited first... This still gets a 3.5 as I'm hoping this series will keep getting stronger but this isn't the standout version that would make you jump to read #2
