The Grimm Diaries Prequel Reviews...

Title: The Grimm Diaries Prequels 1-6

Author: Cameron Jace

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fairy-tale Retelling

Published: November 19, 2012

The Grimm Diaries are pages written in a Book of Sand, where each fairy tale character confessed the true stories once altered by the Brothers Grimm two centuries ago. To keep the truth about fairy tales hidden, the Brothers Grimm buried the characters in their dreams to never wake up again. But the curse is broken now, and the characters are allowed to wake up every one hundred years. They intend to tell the truth about really happened, and about an untold cosmic conflict between fairy tale characters.

Free on Amazon!

The Grimm Diaries Prequels 1-6 recently made the Top 100 Kids & Teens Kindle Books of 2013 on Amazon, along with prequels 7-10, and Cameron Jace's Snow White Sorrow

Let me start by saying that I absolutely the Grimm Fairy Tales so I was intrigued by these books.  I knew they would have to be interesting and I was right!

I was very happy with these prequels, however they left me wanting more, which I guess was the point.  These books are all from a different characters point of view.  There was the Queen from Snow White, Cinderella in a round about way, Peter Pan, Red Riding Hood and others as well.  

I was kind of confused by the Cinderella book but the rest were really good and I really enjoyed them all.  They were funny and really interesting.  The thought put into them in order to make you want to read the books that are soon to follow!  I can't wait to read the rest of the prequels and the books about each character.

RATING: 4.5 stars out of 5!

About Cameron

Things you might want to know:

Cameron writes books that he can't find elsewhere, basically to amuse himself. Everything Cameron does is for fun, so don't take him seriously. Never call him a writer. He hates that. He prefers the word: Storyteller, or the boy next door who claims he can tell stories.

If you like his books, horaaaay! He loves ya too. If ya don't, hoooray! Now we know in advance that this relationship isn't going to work.

Although his books are ordinary on the surface, they hold many secrets that he might reveal one day. What matters the most to him are characters struggling to find their identities and place in the world.

Things you don't need to know:

He celebrates his birthday twice a year, the day he was born and Friday the 13th. He wants to live in a bubble house. He is a damn good guitar player. He is damn good architecture college drop out. He likes boats, beaches, bears, beards, bananas, bars, barfights, beans, bikes, bones, butter, babes, bakery, blizzards, and pirates (he thought it was spelled Birates when he was a kid.)

And honestly, writing in third person sucks! It's so fake.
