Grimm Agency, Book 3
Synopsis: As a partner at Grimm’s magical Agency, Marissa Locks is used to working odd jobs. But when an evil queen reappears in Kingdom, life becomes too strange to handle…
Even when she’s not starting it, trouble follows Marissa everywhere. First there was the incident with the homicidal Fairy Godmother. Then there was the time she accidentally started Armageddon. But the problems that always seem to arise on Marissa’s birthday take the cake.
This year, her annual bad-luck presents include an army of invading goblins, the resurrection of two vengeful enemies from hell, and the return of the Black Queen, the evil sorceress whose reign of terror still haunts Kingdom and who happens to have claimed Marissa as her servant.
As Marissa’s friends try to save her from the Black Queen’s clutches, Marissa fights to end a bitter war that started before her birth. But her quest for peace is about to bring up some inconvenient truths about her own past—ones that might cost her the happily ever after she’s always dreamed of…
Review: I had a good time with the first and second volume and I think that the author had managed to bring perfectly many lovely ideas in his books. It’s always very interesting to see the characters from fairy tales like princesses, queen, princes, goblins and fairy godfather that we all know, in our world today.
Marissa does not really have any luck and each volume proves it perfectly. Once again, our heroine will have to face many obstacles. Oh yes, from her birthday that brings a lot of disasters, Isolde who appears much faster than expected and who is determined to take M. as her servant whatever she wants it or not. In addition, some queen and her son are back in history to destroy the life of our agent. A lot of stuff, is not it? And it is far from over because Marissa is going to have to make many choices whose consequences will likely be very difficult.
Our heroine has evolved considerably since the first novel, but I confess that I did not expect to see so many things here. We discover many revelations which we certainly can not expect and I was surprised more than once I confess. I’m not going to go into the details of the novel as it would be easy to tell you everything taking place and it is not really the goal, but we are left in a race against time where we hope everything will end well.
I do not know if this is the last volume of the series, I admit, but we have a good conclusion there and I had a great time with the whole story. As always we find the characters that we have learned to discover in the novels. Ari and her change into a real witch, the meeting with the famous Isolde, Liam and his dragon status or Grimm and the secrets he hides from everyone.
So yes I had once again a great time with this third installment and I would recommend the series if you want something a little different.
This sounds like something I could read
yes it is
I wouldn’t mind reading something different and this series might very well work for me, so thanks for sharing your thoughts! 🙂
This was written by a man? Both the cover and synopsis led me to think this was a female author. Just proves you should never presume anything.
yes it is.
I really do think I would love this series as well, it just looks like so much fun!
Good to hear that it was different than you expected and a good third installment
I really like the sound of the these books. Homicidal fairy godmother? LOL! I just had to look the series up because it seems so cool and I was curious. It seems there will be another book! I see a fourth book is planned, called The Reburialists. Thanks for introducing me to this!
yes so many ideas there!
I’m always in the mood for something a little different Melliane! I’m curious though if this is the last book or not, either way I’m glad it ended in a good place so if there aren’t any more you ‘re still happy with how everything concluded.
yes it was a good one, I liked how everything was resolved
I got book one recently, need to read it soon! 😀
I have had my eye on this series, and I am glad it ended will. I will have to pick it up in the future.
Character growth is like ambrosia to my brain, lol 🙂 A heroine who is out of luck… not many of those around. I’m intrigued. Lovely review.
Love a good surprise 😀 Sounds like it’s been a fantastic series (or trilogy maybe)
Sounds like a nice read – i’m glad you really like the series, and it wrapped up nicely if this IS the end.
apparently it is not, I’m curious
I’ve had the first book for ages, but I was never interested enough to just go for it. However, I know see that I’ve been mistaken. I’m going to enjoy this series a lot. I’m glad it had such a well rounded ending.
I hope you’ll like it if you try it
So happy you are loving the series. It sounds pretty awesome.
I love the sound of this series and I thought it looked familiar, and then I checked my sheld and sure enough I have a copy of book one. Looks like I need to read this. Does the series have a touch of romance?
Lovely review, Melliane 🙂
Hmmm this sounds really good.
