This book started off to a great start and kept right on going with its fast paced plot.
It was told in three different parts so we got to see a lot of back story on the three main characters Luke,Melinda and Rae.
I found the story line unique with how it was based around the Grimm brothers fairytale.
All in all it was an enjoyable fast paced story that i couldnt put down and I look forward to reading the next Rae Hatting book.
