Product Description

Book 2 of the award-winning Young Adult adventure!

200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world.


Now the characters of the Grimms’ fairy tales 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.

Meanwhile, at night, Alice’s nightmares have begun to grow more real. Terrifying man-eating rats are plaguing the city of Chicago, and it’s up to Alice to figure out a way to stop them. But before she can do that, she’ll have to face off with an even more dangerous enemy sent to kill her.

An enemy that has killed heroes before …

This book also contains the following Grimms’ fairy tales:
- The Frog-Prince
- Fundevogel
- Aschenputtel

If you like Fairytales with a twist you will like The Grimm Chronicles. Happily Never After is the second book in the series. Alice found out she has been chosen as a Hero. A Hero goes after Fairytales that were magically written into our world by the Grimm Brothers. Since one of the brothers used a bit of dark Magic to create the magic paper the stories were written upon, the characters are turning evil. So, every generation needs a Hero to save humans and dissolve the Corrupted. With the aid of a Magic pen and 5 foot talking rabbit, Alice is doing her best.

I will say it again, STOP SAYING GAWD!!! It's god... she's 18 not 12... Gawd is unacceptable!

Okay lets start.

I'm very much enjoying this series. Right out the gate there was nail bight corrupt action with Alice using her wits to kill of the mutated frog prince. It isn't a easy battle, and Alice does get bested, learning that though she my know a lot about swords she doesn't know everything and in the end will be her down fall. And she's bloodily single, there's no hot brewing bad boy to save her, or the hot know it all knight that shows up right at that crucial moment. She has a fiction rabbit, who rather sit and watch. Alice is on her own, and it is marvelous.

The only thing I would have to say bother me, there was a gap between action, and corrupt kills. This is a rather short read mind you and I would like it to have a but more action and less a-day-in-the-life. I don't care if Alice puts on makeup or not, unless she's doing it as a disguise. I also don't like how she gets on about to parents. Sure we all think that they're annoying, but the way she was acting, was more on the lines of a spoiled 14 year-old, instead of a college bound 18-year-old. Her maturity is not matching her age in this series, and I do hope that changes as the books go on.

I loved the ending of this book. It was bitter-sweet and made you feel for this particular corrupt. Even though she has killed countless of unsuspecting men, she just can't be happy because that isn't how her story was written. The Brothers Grimm have made a mockery out of the most beloved fairy tale characters. Alice does catch on to this, and with a heavy heart takes the said princesses life and grows in her understanding that not all the corrupt want to be so.

HASH(0xa1c1b39c) out of 5 stars Entertaining series June 26 2012
By Elizabeth Corrigan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
(cross-posted from the blog Wading Through Electronic Ink)

So I am back for the second installment of this series, The Grimm Chronicles, which promises to offer a new title every other month. Which, let's face it, is reason enough to take a look at it. At least it is for me, who reviews three books a week and still has some time to read on the side. But it's also worth checking out for anyone who thinks that stories are better when there is an invisible rabbit sidekick doing all the google searches.

I liked Happily Never After somewhat better than Prince Charming Must Die! In the first book, Alice spent a lot of time trying to figure out whether her boyfriend Edward was evil, when there was a lot of evidence that he was and no evidence that he was not. This second one features some more innovative sleuthing, including geocoding and mysterious trips to the aquarium. We also get hints of an uber-plot involving dwarves foreclosing on somewhat innocent people's homes.

There were still some parts that had me rolling my eyes. I mean, faced with dreams about a woman named Cindy who has power over rats, your average 8-year-old Disney fan could probably figure out who the villain was long before Alice did. And Alice seemed disproportionately embarrassed by her parents in a manner more reminiscent of a younger teen. There's also a chapter from Briar the rabbit's point of view in which he directly addressed the audience, and I couldn't decide whether I thought it was cute or lame.

All in all, though, The Grimm Chronicles is an entertaining series, and I am interested to see where it goes next.

HASH(0xa1c1b3f0) out of 5 stars Start With Book One, ("Prince Charming...") Jan. 15 2015
By Pop Bop - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second Book in the Grimm Chronicles series. The first Book sets up and sells the whole premise; (Alice is a "hero" called upon to slay escaped Grimm Fairy Tale characters with a "magic pen". she is guided by and accompanied by a life size mystical/chatty Rabbit). This book starts right off without any preamble or intro. If you start here you may well conclude that the series is lightweight and dumb. It isn't, but really first off you need to be drawn in and trapped by Book One.

I like this series because I like clever and slightly irreverent Grimm variations, and I like smart, feisty, independent female protagonists. Our heroine, Alice, is certainly smart and confident. She's not a swoony romantic, but she's interested in boys. She's not snarky, but she won't be pushed around and she doesn't play clique games. She likes her parents and she isn't a mope who has a lot of imagined grievances. She's just an all around solid character. She's a little lighter in this Book, and the Rabbit is a bit chattier and funnier, and it seems like the balances of light/dark, action/talk, humor/darkness will vary from book to book, as the plots warrant. This one is on the lighter, talkier, funnier, (almost casually plotted), side.

As always, the writing is sort of in-between. It isn't middle grade simple, but it also isn't overwrought or overdone. The story telling is direct, dialogue is to the point, the patter remains snappy, (especially between Alice and her Rabbit counselor/guide), and the pacing keeps the book screaming along. This Book isn't as violent as the first one, but then again, the original Grimm stories, (and the pertinent ones are reproduced in an appendix so you can refamiliarize yourself with them), were more gruesome than this book anyway.

So, the upshot is that we get an appealing heroine, a well crafted series, some funny bits, some good-humored bits, and some fast-paced action. That's good for me.

There are 12 "Books" in the Grimm Chronicles series. These have been gathered into four "Volumes", (made up of three Books each). The Books are available separately, as are the four Volumes. Currently, (thank you, Amazon), all of the Books and all of the Volumes are available as kindleunlimited freebies.

Please note that I found this book while browsing Amazon Kindle freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

HASH(0xa1c1b828) out of 5 stars The Adventure Continues... June 18 2012
By T Joyner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book did not disappoint. "Happily Never After" is the sequel to "Prince Charming Must Die." It continues the tale of Alice on her quest to kill the Corrupted. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not wait to see what would happen next. This book was just as good as the first. I was sad to see the book come to an end. I can't wait for the next installment!

Not as entertaining as the prequel. Sometimes boring fill the space perhaps...did not like the ending at all...horrible ending.
