Kurzbeschreibung

What if all you knew about fairy tales was wrong?


Warning: these Grimm Prequels are like snap shots of a magical land you're about to visit soon. I like to think of them as poisoned apples. Once you taste them, you will never see fairy tales in the same light again.



This Grimm Diaries Prequels are a number of short books in the form of epistolary diary entries. The diaries are more of teasers for the upcoming series: The Grimm Diaries, allowing you to get a glimpse of what to expect of the series. The 6 diaries are told by The Evil Queen, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, the Devil, Prince Charming, and Alice Grimm

The first book in the Series will be out in February 2013, called SNOW WHITE SORROW.



Series Description:

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 was broken and they allowed to wake up every one hundred years.

Die Idee für die Prequels (und dann irgendwann die Bücher) muss ich zu geben ist sehr gut, hier fehlt es bei die Umsetzung. Cameron Jace hat sehr gute Momente in diese Kurzgeschichten aber es kommen dann wieder Aussagen oder Handlungen bei seine Charakteren wo mann nur denn Kopf schütteln kann. Hier fehlt mir die rote Faden bei die Charakteren, ich kann mich nicht in sie hineinsetzen. Sie sind Teils sehr Komplex und dann passiert wieder etwas wo sie eher wie pubertierende Teenagers agieren. Dies ist ok wenn sie Teenagers sind oder als ganze Person als Unreif gelten, aber das sind nicht alle. Manche Sachen werden dann viel zu vereinfacht beschrieben die im Welt passieren, so als ob eine Komplizierte und Hintergrund reiche Teil selbstverständlich ist und in drei Setze beschrieben werden kann und gilt dann als abgehakt. Hier ist dann ein großes ABER, ich werde sie weiter lesen. Im zweiten Volume von die Prequels wird seine Schreibweise spürbar besser und manche Kurzgeschichten sind dann gut. Wie vorhin gesagt, die Idee ist sehr gut, es ist so gut ich werde weiter Lesen, hoffen dass es sich mit jede Geschichte bessert und auf die erste ganzes Buch warten.

The Grimm Diaries tell the true stories of famous fairytale characters which are actually immortals. This fact was hidden by the Brothers Grimm to protect us from them. They cursed the immortals to live in their own dreams. But for one time in a hundred years, they do wake and come upon us… But there are many people searching for them in their dreams. The Grimm’s descendants and also the dreamhunters. The Prequels introduce us to this exciting fairytale world and offer us a glimpse on the upcoming novels each dealing with a different fairytale figure.

#1 Snow White Blood Red 3/5

The Evil Queen writes this letter to Willhelm Carl Grimm, who along with his brother Jacob wrote down the fairytale myth of Snow White. This fairytale was all wrong according to the Queen. She tells Grimm the story of Snow White’s childhood who actually started the vampire myth. It becomes obvious that there is something majorly wrong with this queen. She is a really interesting character, yet the story was a bit slow and lacking some action, it being a diary entry and so short.

#2 Ashes to Ashes & Cinder to Cinder (4/5)
Narrated 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.
This one was really wonderful.

I really like what Cameron is doing here. Really, really like it. I plan to purchase the oncoming full books and read them with gusto.

However, I have a big issue with one aspect of his writing: nearly all the voices are the same. As in, each character reasons and speaks too similarly. At one point, the Queen says "Wuteva." I highly doubt a prestigious woman would use this mumbled abbreviation. I also expected her speech (as well as two other ancient characters whom I don't want to give away) to be more complex and elegant. It's true that they're living through the centuries and will pick up new manners of speech, but my main point is that too many of the characters have the same patterns of speech.

I know Cameron has it in him to flesh out the characters better and differentiate them more. I really hope that a beta reader somewhere has pointed this out to him. It saddens me how much it detracts from the story for me and takes me out of the picture Cameron is painting.

I think that's why my favorite character so far is Ladle. She comes across almost mentally challenged at times, if not plain off her rocker. But there's something wonderful about her innocent madness! I like her voice, and I applaud Cameron.

I also have a big issue with the editor/transcriber of the book. I found so many typos and dropped words, I nearly pulled my hair out! Again, this detracts from the story, pulling me out as I try to figure out that 'form' should be 'from', 'Bur' should be 'But', or that there's a missing 'a' in a sentence which makes for stilted descriptions. Please be more watchful in the future!

I think Cameron and Danielle will go far. They're just fresh out of the gates and need some polish.

The Grimm Diaries Prequels by Cameron Jace are a series of short stories to set the scene for the release of his much anticipated novel, Snow White Sorrow. In these prequels, the readers gets to see the famous fairytale characters we grew up reading about in a creative new light. Each "untold" story is from a different character's perspective and each gives us a little more information about this fantastic world Cameron created. The plots are fun and inventive, and the characters are familiar, yet new and exciting at the same time. I would definitely reccomend reading these, and at such a great price for the whole series, you can't beat it!

I stumbled across these prequels in a search for fairy tales retold. From the very first prequel, Snow White Blood Red, I was hooked. Snow White Blood Red is a great entertaining read and fast. I didn'tlike Ashes to Ashes & Cinder to Cinder as much. Despite this, it is important to read it for the story building. I also loved Beauty Never Dies. Peter Pan is one of my favorite characters in these stories. Ladle Rat Rotten Hut was my least favorite. I had trouble staying with the story and felt a bit confused. Mary Mary Quite Contrary didn't hold my attention either. I'm the oddball of readers and preferred the prequels other folks didn't much care for. And lastly Blood Apples was my favorite by far. Such a take on the red apple and golden apple and the love story inside. At the end of Blood Apples another prequel is promised and let me just say I cannot wait for it to release. All of these prequels are must reads and guarentee once you are done you'll have to read Snow White Sorrow the book they are leading up to. Cameron is an author to watch!

I first read Snow White Blood Red out of curiousity after I finished his first book of the I Am Alive series. I devoured book One of the Grimms in just under two hours and talked my husband into letting me get the rest as soon as I saw them on my kindle as available. The new releases of them in this box; I would recommend this to ANYONE who loves fairy tales, Once Upon A Time the show (and the fans of Beauty and the Beast). In fact I have already lent my Kindle to my teenage son to read since his reader won't be here till Xmas and he couldn't wait that long to read either :)
Cameron will make you question everything you thought you knew, including what children's tales we knew that are deemed fairy tales and how sometimes stories of lives become more intertwined than we realize. Can't wait for book 7 to come out so I can dig my teeth in again!

Jan 8 2013 I am ediitng my review to insert my son's review now that he has gotten through the books. He loved the plots, the twists & turns, and the dark cast to the characters. He says it is truth in advertising on the query of "What if everything you knew about fairy tales was wrong?" At 13 he is quite the avid reader and goes through books like water (and I mean books like World War Z, Patient Zero, the complete works of Mark Twain; not kiddie books) Needless to say Mr Jace has 2 diehard readers (and 1 regular fan in my husband who rarely reads) in our house & a possible one in my daughter - she is 3 but loves my son reading these out loud to her despite not liking being read things like Runaway Bunny :)

The Grimm Diaries are a prequel to Cameron Jace’s Snow White Sorrow series. Each prequel is a quick little story from some fairy tale character or a member of the Grimm family. And each story explains the background of the some of the fairy tales that have been misrepresented by the brothers Grimm. I loved trying to guess of Cameron Jace was going to twist and manipulate the fairy tale stories to make them his own. It was really cool to read. Throughout the book, he also adds his notes, to give you some extra info to help make sense of some of the stories. I liked this, because it didn’t take away from the flow of the story at all, since the stories were just little snippets from different characters and were not a cohesive overall story yet.
We got to meet the “evil” queen from Snow White, also known as the Queen of Sorrow, Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, a descendant of the Brothers Grimm, and Mary, who helped further explain the Queen of Sorrow. I loved all of the mini stories, and they did their job in getting me excited to reading the actual Grimm Diaries series. It looks like it is going to be so flippin’ cool! There is a war brimming, and it looks like all of your favorite fairy tale characters are going to be involved. They are all immortal and have been placed under a curse by the brothers Grimm to try and protect the world. Because of the curse, they are stuck in this dreamworld of eternal slumber. Not everything about the dream world and the curse was explained in the first 6 prequels, so I can’t wait to read the rest of them and the series to find out more about that.

Cameron Jace has a real talent for making new spins on old classics. And when he is done with them, he will have you asking just what the real version is. He makes his, different, darker versions seem completely plausible. I loved that. Sometimes, I guessed what the twist would be, and other times I didn’t see it coming. It was cool to just see little parts from each story, and to try and figure out how that character might fit into his overall storyline. I think Mary’s version was my least favorite of the 6 until the end. I thought that was probably the coolest tie in out of all of them. If you are interested in fairy tales, and new takes on them, then you should check out The Grimm Diaries Prequels. It is a great way to test out Cameron Jace’s Grimm Dairies series and see if it is something you would enjoy. I can already tell it is going to be right up my alley!
