Revenge of the Castle Cats

Revenge of the Castle Cats (The Grimm Chronicles, #3)
by Isabella Fontaine & Ken Brosky

This book was provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review.

After being rushed to the hospital, Alice Goodenough finds herself trapped in the worst dream imaginable: a horrible monster is stalking her in the darkness, making its way to the hospital. It will stop at nothing to kill her.

And that’s not the worst of it. All across the city, people are growing more addicted to Castle Cats, a smartphone game created by Grayle Incorporated. And it’s not just a game. The more you play, the more it controls you. Soon, Alice learns that the dwarfs who run Grayle Incorporated are watching her everywhere she goes, using human beings to spy on her.

There must be a confrontation. Sam Grayle and his brothers have to be stopped. And Alice is going to need help.

This is the third installment of the episodic story of Alice Goodenough. She's a hero, chosen to fight the twisted fairytale characters brought to life by the Brothers Grimm.

All of these books have been fun -- a great mix of hilarity and action.

This particular part of Alice's story expands on a game that appeared in an earlier book: Castle Cats. The game is addicting, and there's a secret little something hidden within the game code.

I highly recommend this series. The stories are fast reads, and very entertaining!

4/5 stars
