Title: The Grim and The Grave
Author: Sami Eastwood
Not going to lie the title The Grim and The Grave got me requesting for review. That being said the story is very flat and the characters lack the background that will help readers understand why they act or react the way they do. The author descriptions are lacking to help readers see the world the author is trying to create. The author uses the first half of the book talking about the Fae lore and the conflict with the different races. The author could have incorporated the Fae lore into the mystery story instead of hitting you right away slowing down the story that might loss readers right away. There is some racism underline with the author way of describing the Fae as well as human.
For those who love Fae Lore this might be your story but for the paranormal readers you might want to skip The Grim and The Grave.
Thank you to Netgalley for an advance copy of Sami Eastwood The Grim and The Grave.
