Publisher's Summary

Four friends, one murder, and a dark fate that may leave them all doomed....  

After the mysterious death of their best friend, Ella, Yuki, and Rory are the talk of their elite school, Grimrose Académie. The police ruled Ariane’s death as a suicide, but the trio is determined to find out what really happened.  

When Nani Eszes arrives as their newest roommate, it sets into motion a series of events that no one could have predicted. As the girls retrace their friend’s final days, they discover a dark secret about Grimrose - Ariane wasn’t the first dead girl.  

They soon learn that all the past murders are connected to ancient fairy-tale curses...and that their own fates are tied to the stories, dooming the girls to brutal and gruesome endings unless they can break the cycle for good.

Gripping, Inventive, Dark and Magical

I was enthralled from the moment all the characters were introduced. It was a gripping and dark mystery with twists and turns I could not anticipate. The intricate storyline and suspense were a pure pleasure! I loved the characters and can’t wait to find out what happens next in the sequel.

Ummm…eh?

Loving anything with a little queer representation, I wanted to like it. The premise is maybe a bit intriguing, but the execution felt a little forced. The end sets up for a sequel, which is good cause I honestly felt like I had no idea what was going on by the end. Maybe the sequel will answer lingering questions,
although I’m not sure I care enough to read it. Pretty YA in writing style but gruesome in content. The characters were also pretty two dimensional. Not my favorite.

Unimpressive

It starts out boring and tough to follow with so many non-distinct characters. Then i realised a few hours in, that this was yet another d!sn€y princess retelling (should have been obvious earlier tbh) that takes a similar approach as that Once Upon A Time TV series, character names slightly changed, storylines that have already been played out dozens of times before. I thought I paid for original content, the description and sample made the book seem much more interesting than the book actually is. This just feels like fan-fiction.
Then there's the narrator, she's a middle aged lady and sounds like it, not like a 16 year old girl, it throws off the vibe of the story a lot, then her accents are quite similar, not much difference between Hawaiian and Chinese accents? Nor much change when she switches between characters, so it all feels confusing.
I have four hours left and don't even want to continue.
I'm sure there are some people who'll enjoy it, especially fans of OUAT and d!sn€y
