Grimm’s Circle, Book 2.5

The events of this free short story take place between the events of No Prince Charming and Ren’s story, Crazed Hearts. It turns out both Ren and Elle had some loose ends they needed to tie up…and that’s what this story is about. It’s not Ren’s happy ever after. That’s in Crazed Hearts.

The Grimm: a group of guardian angels here to protect mankind from the demons of the netherworld. Many are the basis for what the Brothers Grimm later recorded as fictional tales, but they actually lived, if not quite the way they were portrayed. These are not bright and shiny angels, they are darker and trained to do what needs doing in times of crisis. These are not your childhood fairy tales: they are much more fun.

Shiloh Walker has created a dark world where characters from our favorite tales are not quite what they seem. This short story is a bridge of sorts: it is a way for Elle (from No Prince Charming, book two of the Grimm series) to tie up loose ends and say her own goodbye to Ren and have her happy ever after with Michael. But her goodbye is one very hot ménage and worth the brief time it takes to read it. Ren is such a hot hero, but his fate is yet to be determined. Elle and Michael belong together, and this brings closure to all concerned.

If you like your fairy tales a bit dark, the Grimm series is for you, and this snippet of a short story is a great lead in to the next book in the series: Ren’s story. But I recommend that you get his along with the book that follows, for a fantastic reading experience.
