Nelson</a><br/>

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1314187599">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />

I was very pleasantly surprised by the first book in the series, <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20650531.Free_Agent__Grimm_Agency___1_" title="Free Agent (Grimm Agency, #1) by J.C. Nelson" rel="nofollow">Free Agent</a>, so I was glad that I had access to the audiobook for this next book. This book had a slightly different feel as an audiobook. The narrator is really good. She give Marissa a lot of attitude. I also like the way she characterizes the other characters. Liam sounds extra yummy and adorable. Marissa comes off as a tough cookie, but she is very caring and loyal to her friends and loved ones, a driving force to her actions. <br /><br />I feel like the body count was pretty high in this book compared to the first, and there's an overall cavalier attitude about death and dying. I supposed that's to be expected, considering the business and the overall state of affairs. <br /><br />I am a sucker for the fairy tale theme, and I appreciate how naturalistic this is to the overall story. In this world, fairy godparents, princesses, evil queens, and all manner of supernatural being are part and parcel.<br /><br />This novel provides more insight into the mysterious Grimm and his background. I would definitely read these books in order because otherwise one would be lost. This book picks up where the first book left off.<br /><br />If you can grab the audiobook, I recommend it.
