URBAN FANTASY TV TIE IN: Grimm: Aunt Marie's Book of Lore

Release Date: 15/11/13
Publisher:  Titan


As his Aunt Marie is dying, homicide Detective Nick Burkhardt discovers he is descended from an elite line of criminal profilers known as "Grimms", who keep the balance between humanity and mythological creatures. As well as inheriting the "gift" from his aunt of being able to see the creatures' true forms, he also inherits useful artefacts, including the Book of Lore.


Ah, as a fan of Grimm, I really wanted to get my hands on a copy of Aunt Maries book. I loved the way that it helped ease the principle character not only into his role but helped explain a lot of the things that go bump in the night. The artwork within is wonderful, fully descriptive and a great tie in with a cracking series. Add to this some great descriptions all accompanied with the various informations all round made this a great piece.

My only real gripe is that it should have been bound like the book in the series. Other than that though a great thing for any UF reader to enjoy.
