The Grimm Chronicles Vol. 2: Review

The Grimm Chronicles Vol. 2 (The Grimm Chronicles #4-6)
by Ken Brosky, Isabella Fontaine
200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world. Literally. Now the characters of the Grimms’ stories walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them.

For 18-year-old Alice Goodenough, that means taking precious time off from her summer vacation. In addition to volunteering at the local library, Alice must stop the Corrupted who are now actively hunting her down. With the help of her magic pen and her trusty rabbit friend, the world has suddenly gotten a lot more complex. The Corrupted are everywhere, and only Alice can see them for what they truly are.

This book contains 3 episodes of the critically acclaimed series:

Episode 4: The Orphanage of Doom
Episode 5: Blood and Thunder
Episode 6: The Order of the Golden Dragon

My Review
I really enjoyed the first Volume in this series and looked forward to see what Alice get's into next. I was not disappointed. Alice has to search for the Corrupted and kill them. Before she really just had the help of Briar but in this volume she has the help of more friends. Seth her friend plays a bigger part in helping her battle the Corrupt and helps her with day to day life. A new character Chase has a big part to play as well. At times I will say I wasn't sure about him. However he learns a big lesson in this book. Alice searches for clues in her dreams as to where the next Corrupt will be. It does effect her in other ways with her sleep all messed up. She also has regular issues to deal with being a teen. She has to face the school bully and some teachers as well. She grows even more in this book as she has to search deep down as to whether she wants to be the one to keep hunting the Corrupt. She see that not all Corrupt are ready to be killed as there may be some good left in them yet. This book has several funny scenes as well as action and learning lessons. I think it does a great job in teaching little lessons while being entertaining. If you have ever wondered what happens to Grims Tales be sure to check this out. Each story is very good and you just keep wanting more.
