    I saw this recommended on Twitter and thought I'd give it a shot

    I saw this recommended on Twitter and thought I'd give it a shot. I'm
    usually not into self-published authors (I've been burned by one too
    many bad ones), but this wasn't bad. It was an interesting take on The
    Grimm brothers classic Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale. There's some
    love, some action, a lot of fantasy, and a LOT about Pittsburgh. I'm
    actually looking forward to the next one in the series.

    "The Last Grimm: Red’s Hood" is a creative new adaptation of "Grimm’s Fairy Tales". Abigail Grimm is an 18-year-old college freshman with an exciting new internship within the world of fashion. Raised by her emotionally distant mother, Elaine, “Abs” is not at all prepared to learn of her destiny. As the last surviving descendant of the original Grimm Brothers, she is thrust into the world where fairy tales are real, and they are coming for her. In discovering her future, she also learns of her past. The father she believed to have deserted her mother upon learning of her pregnancy was in reality a warrior and the only person with the ability to keep peace between Abigail’s world and the world of Fairy Tales. Abandoning his family was the only way to keep them safe and now Abigail, as the last Grimm, must quickly take her rightful place as the guardian. Her co-worker, Connor, seems to be her only ally but even he appears a little too good to be true. Time is running out and as she is hunted by the Big Bad Wolf, on orders from the Evil Queen, Abigail and her handsome partner, Connor, must find a way to send the Big Bad Wolf back to the land of Fairy Tales.

    This book is a creative new look at "Grimm’s Fairy Tales". It begins a little slowly but I was soon engulfed in the story of Red’s Hood. I have to admit that I was a little confused as to the genre of this book because it seems to be written for young adults but the material is a bit too mature. Overall, the story line is great and I could not put it down. I simply cannot wait to read the sequel!

    Enjoyed this book immensely!

    Brought to you by OBS Reviewer Dawn

    Beware of spoilers!!!!!

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Some may consider it a rip-off, because the foundation is part of a fairy tale, but I firmly disagree. Wampler made it her own. It’s as if she took an old song and jazzed it up until it’s her unique creation.

    Abigail sees herself as timid, but she’s a foul mouthed bad ass. Her foul mouth makes her more real; she could put a truck driver to shame. I too have a foul mouth and I love that the heroine is not perfect.

    Abigail Grimm has no idea what the world has in store for her until she gets her first job in the fashion industry. She meets Connor, a co-worked, and learns about her destiny. There have been a series of attacks on people wearing red hoodies. Shortly after starting her new job, Abigail sees an attack, on a co-worker, first hand. She is horrified, scared and in shock. Connor jumps in to protect Abigail when the thing comes after her.

    Abigail can speak the old fairy tales to make them come to life. She is a guardian and she must protect her world since some of the fairy tales have bled over into the real world.

    It’s overwhelming for Abby as it should be. She has to learn to fight; to accept who she is. I like that she didn’t just pick up a weapon and BAM! she knows how to use it. She gets dirty, she gets hurt but she fights with all she has within her. She shows great courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

    The plot is revealed slowly but it’s never boring. There is no lack of fighting ensuring there’s no lull in the story.

    Some romance pops up although it’s not cheesy. I worry a bit about Connor. He seems too good to be true, too perfect. I’m curious to find out more about him.

    Abby’s mom is not much of a mother and it’s sad. It’s obvious Abby does the parenting between the two of them. Too bad her mom cannot be more supportive. Despite not having a father and having a disengaged mother, Abby is a great person and character. I cheered for her and cried for her.

    I am in love with Wampler’s characters, their vitality. She gave more depth to our favorite fairy tale characters. I think I might know who the evil queen is, but I’m not positive. I’m already anxious for more of this story. I’m hooked. I read the entire book in 2 days. What can I say? When I enjoy a book, I tear through it.

    Reading The Last Grimm: Red’s Hood is pure fun. I recommend The Last Grimm to all those who love fairy tales, action and characters with depth.

    PS Please please more smut in the next installment!
