As a partner at Grimm’s magical Agency, Marissa Locks is used to working odd jobs. But when an evil queen reappears in Kingdom, life becomes too strange to handle…
Even when she’s not starting it, trouble follows Marissa everywhere. First there was the incident with the homicidal Fairy Godmother. Then there was the time she accidentally started Armageddon. But the problems that always seem to arise on Marissa’s birthday take the cake.
This year, her annual bad-luck presents include an army of invading goblins, the resurrection of two vengeful enemies from hell, and the return of the Black Queen, the evil sorceress whose reign of terror still haunts Kingdom and who happens to have claimed Marissa as her servant.
As Marissa’s friends try to save her from the Black Queen’s clutches, Marissa fights to end a bitter war that started before her birth. But her quest for peace is about to bring up some inconvenient truths about her own past—ones that might cost her the happily ever after she’s always dreamed of…
Wish Bound by J.C. Nelson
Talk about having a messed up birthday, Marissa’s yearly event seems to coincide with catastrophe every year and this year isn’t looking any better. The Black Queen is back and she wants to rule the world. Caught up as the Black Queen’s handmaiden, Marissa is suppose to lead this battle but she is 100% against the Black Queen. It’s the end of things as we know it, but that doesn’t seem like a strange occurrence for Marissa or the other agents from Grimm.
This is my first read in the Grimm Agency series so I did feel I was playing a little bit of catch up. That being said, I would love to restart this series from the beginning, the characters are exciting and fun and the fairy tale twist just makes the reading delightful.
Ultimately, I found Wish Bound to be a wildly fun, action intense, snark filled adventure.
I received this ARC copy of Wish Bound from PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, NAL / Signet Romance, DAW - Ace in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 25, 2015.
