The Grimm Diaries Prequels #1-3

Snow White Blood Red (The Grimm Diaries Prequels, #1)

Book description of Snow White Blood Red: A Grimm Diaries Prequel as told by the Snow White Queen:

I have always wondered why you never asked about my name. Was I so superficial to you? So stereotypical and mundane? Why did you treat me as if I were just the monster of the week? You know what I think? You never had the time to really hate me. You wanted to hate me, long before you even met me. You wanted to scrape my existence and avenge your childhood princess by laying all blame on me. What if they didn’t call me the Evil Queen, what if I told you the real story from my point of view instead of hers, would you ever think of me as an angel? Could I ever make you care? I know that deep inside of you, you adore me,but you’re just scared, afraid to admit how much you love the Snow White Queen.



Så här tyckte jag:



Detta var en annorlunda historia som fick mig att fastna tillräckligt mycket för att vilja fortsätta läsa nästa prequel.

Man fick reda på en hel del och det märks att det ska locka dagens ungdomar när man tittar på språket och själva berättelsen i sig.

En modern berättelse om vem Snövit egentligen var enligt den så kallade elake drottningen som kanske inte var direkt så elak om man bara utgår från denna.

Ashes to Ashes and Cinder to Cinder  (The Grimm Diaries Prequels, #2)



Book description of Ashes to Ashes and Cinder to Cinder: A Grimm Diaries Prequel as told by Alice Grimm:

Seventeen-year-old Alice Grimm lives a dangerously enchanted life. Other than being distracted by a Dreamhunter called Loki Blackstar who has a heart of gold but acts like a jerk, she has a job to do. Being a descendant of the Brothers Grimm, she is one of few in the world who can locate the fairy tale characters and remind them of who they are. This time, Alice flies to Venice where an 800 hundred year old witch's skeleton surrounded with seventeen glass slippers was found by archeologists in the city that invented the art of glassblowing. When Alice and Loki follow the lead, they find one of the fairy tale characters she had been searching for. It's a famous girl character that you know by name, but never really knew what actually happened to her.



Så här tyckte jag:



En askungesaga som man tidigare inte läst dock är den inte lika bra som Cinder men man får ju tänka på att detta bara är en prequel inför serien The Grimm Diaries som ska komma sen.

Man bjuds in i en värld av drömmar där allt kan hända även olyckliga saker kan hända som påverkar personen som drömmer.

Beauty Never Dies (The Grimm Diaries Prequels, #3)



Peter Pan has a plan. Since it's been hundred years since his friends were all cursed by the Brothers Grimm, he is about to wake up Sleeping Beauty, his eternal lover. Oops, you didn't know that. Blame it on the Grimms.
But in the middle of the ceremony, he is visited by the Evil Queen who manipulates him into helping her with information about Snow White. This or she will expose him as he has been secretly kidnapping kids to help him rebuild Neverland in the Dreamworld.
After the deal is made, Peter continues with the ceremony, bringing Sleeping Beauty back into life. What Sleeping Beauty is capable of and who she really is are like nothing ever written in the books.



Så här tyckte jag:



Denna läste jag lite i taget då jag tyckte den kändes seg men roligt att man stöter på bland annat Peter Pan, elake drottningen och Törnrosa i en och samma berättelse.

Än så länge är detta den sämre av de prequels som jag har läst dock vill jag nog fortsätta med #4 som ska handla om Rödluvan tror jag.
