A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz

A Tale Dark & Grimm (A Tale Dark & Grimm, #1)A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Crazy and weird, but it was the homage to the original Grimm tales that it claims to be...gore and freakish sense of humour is in tune with those original bizarre tales!
Very fun for fans of all things Grimm and for most boys, I'd imagine. There's now a second book. From what I've heard it's along the same lines, so I'll have to read that as well.

Beyonders - Chasing the Prophecy (Book 3) by Brandon Mull

Chasing the Prophecy (Beyonders, #3)Chasing the Prophecy by Brandon Mull
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really loved the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull and was skeptical about how I would feel when I began the Beyonders series. I have completely enjoyed it and can't currently nail down which series I like better.
Chasing the Prophecy is the final installment in the Beyonders trilogy. When follow the fates of Jason, Rachel, Galloran, and the many friends/enemies they encounter along the way. Lyrian is at a critical point in its history. The battle that will occur will completely change Lyrian as we have learned to know it. The question is will our heroes be able to hear a prophecy that will have a positive outcome for their side? And will they be able to attain that possible future among many others? This is a must read, however, one needs to read the complete trilogy in order to fully appreciate and follow the characters/story.

Highly recommended - this series is a must read!
