{Synopsis} – Gretel joins the Grimmtastic quest for justice in a world where the E.V.I.L. Society must be stopped… and finds a candy cottage along the way.

The charming Grimmtastic Girls series continues!

{My thoughts} – It saddens me to see this particular series come to an end. I’ve a great interest in fairy tale retellings and I thoroughly enjoy sharing them with my children.

The conclusion of this series is wrapped up nicely per say. I think that should the authors decide at some point to continue the storyline, that it should be fairly easy for them to pick up where they’d left off.

Gretel is the main character in this book and she plays her part fantastically. She even sort of follows true to her actual story which was interesting to read and see how it had been tied into the book.

I highly recommend this book and series to anyone that enjoys reading fairy tale retellings. I promise it’s an incredibly well written series that your sure to enjoy!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
