About the book: Enchanted castles and charming princes thought to exist only in stories come to life in this classically twisted fairy tale that combines the timeless quality of generations old folktales with the challenges of the modern world.
The woods of Elorium appear ordinary to Andi Grace, until birds start talking and elves answer doors. Along with three others, Andi has been whisked out of her world and finds herself the reluctant guest of the perplexing millionaire, Mr. Jackson—a stranger willing to help get them home, but who’s keeping secrets of his own.
Discovering unexpected family connections to this fairy tale land, the group must rely on each other as they dodge evil fairies and battle giants, intent on keeping them in Elorium.
Faced with characters short on whimsy and bent towards treachery, Andi, Quinn, Fredrick and Dylan are forced into fairy tale roles to find the way home. But in Elorium, happily ever after is never guaranteed.

I'm really excited to take part in the "Grimm Legacy" by Janna Jennings book tour. I received this book for an honest review. I thought the book was fantastic. Patchwork Press has really caught my attention with the books that have been published & promoted by them." A Grimm Legacy" did not disappoint !
I rated the YA/ Fairy Tale genre title 4 $$$$ :) right off the bat I was enjoying the pace and quirkiness of the characters. Individually each was pretty basic teen, however as a group they were charming.
Since the blurb for the book is just up above I'm not going to rehash the basics. I will however say that when the group first arrives in the realm if Elorium it gave me a completely "Willy Wonka" feeling with a dash of "Edward Scissorhands". The crazy gardens, wacky food, even the mansion & it's twin elve butlers "Cob & Harland". The description of the mansions odd & secretive owner was the cherry on top.
A very cool thing about this book is that it has a lot of really specific actual original fairy tale bits. None of that "let's not tell that part cause it's scary". There have been a lot of great books coming out bringing back the fairy tale with modern twists.. Fae blood in the family tree.. Baby snatching.. All that great stuff.
I really enjoyed reading this book and was pleased to see a # 1 next to the title. I will defiantly be keeping my eyes out for the next book in the series.
I would recommend this book to fans of Holly Black, Laura Howard, A.G. Howard, Kellie Sheridan ( also Patchwork Press) & Alex Flynn. There are tons more, Laini Taylor's another great author with a few fairy tales tucked up her sleeve. This title was absolutely a YA /fairy tale fantasy book. As a absolute adult I really enjoyed it. I'm obsessed with all things fae so I might be a little biased. Just for the older crowd there's also a very much adult series that features the fae by Laurell K. Hamilton and the "Fever series" by Karen Marie Moning. I highly recommend checking out all these authors. Today however head over to the links provided above and add the Grimm Legacy by Janna Jennings to your "To be read list"!
