Review : Grimm Legacy

A Grimm Legacy
Jenna Jennings
Patchwork Press
From Goodreads: 
   The woods of Elorium appear ordinary to Andi… until the birds start to talk and elves answer doors. Whisked out of her world along with three strangers, Andi finds herself the reluctant guest of Mr. Jackson, a perplexing millionaire who claims to be able to help them get home. The secrets he harbors, however, make it difficult to know just who to trust.

When the group of teenagers discover that in this new world, fiction is anything but, and that they all have unexpected family ties to this fairy tale land, they must learn to rely on each other. The only way to survive evil fairies and giants intent on keeping them in Elorium is to rely on each other.

Faced with characters short on whimsy and bent toward treachery, Andi, Quinn, Fredrick, and Dylan are forced to play their parts in unfinished fairy tales. But in Elorium , happily ever after is never guaranteed.
My Review:
                I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I would like to thank Netgalley ,Jenna Jennings and Patchwork Press.
This book was wonderfully written and the plot was unique and fun. To have family ties to all the old fairy tales we here growing up would be wonderful, but to be pulled back into those fairy tales would not. This book takes a look at what happens when the story ends..... or do they???? As you read you see characters that I remember from childhood in a darker and different light than we did so many years ago. Realizing  maybe living in fairy tales is not happily ever after....  There is more to the story.   This takes the live of four modern and very different kids and throws them together in a world they have only heard about. Having no idea why they have been taken or who they really are makes this story a compelling read. The world built by the author Is very enchanting and you are transported there by the wonderful writing. I am looking forward to reading the second book.
