The Grimm Diaries Prequels is an introduction to the Grimm Diaries series. I understand that this is only a preview of what us to come, I mean that is what a prequel is.
That being said, I had a difficult time getting into each story. Each novella is told by a new character. I think the quick switching between the characters and stories is what made it difficult for me. However, I am intrigued by the spin the author has on a lot of these well known fairy tales. It is definitely creative.
Just because I didn't fully enjoy this set of prequels and give it a higher rating doesn't mean I won't be reading the full length novels. I will. I know that once I do read the novels, these novellas will make more sense and I will be glad for them.
