Review - "A Grimm Legacy" by Janna Jennings

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.

My Review

Andi was taken out of her home to find herself in a world with three others and where fairy tales are real.  The four of them must find their way home or be forever stuck in the world of Elorium, where it appears they are descendants of famous storybook people.  With the help of Mr. Jackson, can these kids find out why they are there, what they need to do to get home or will they be forever stuck in Elorium?

I enjoyed this whole other world where four individuals who have never met, must come together to overcome all the strange characters they encounter and to figure out how to get home.  Each character was unique to the story and once you found how who they were related to, you understood why they were brought there.  I loved the tangled web of a story line that keep you enthralled to figure out what was going to happen next and who you were going to come across!

great take on classic tales, I look forward to more from this author!!
