Welcome to a world of fantasy, fairy tales, and murder most foul...
Never should have been the end of my problems. I should be back on Grimm. With Hook. Hating Crowley. And working alongside my partner, the Hatter. But life rarely turns out how I expect. The Sea Witch, and oh, incidentally my mother, has told me I’m a witch. Not just any witch either, but one of the biggest bad. I wouldn’t believe her, except I can do magick now. Unfortunately I can’t do enough to escape the predicament I’m in. Hook’s dead. Crowley’s dead. And I’m alone in a realm that hates my guts. And there has been a murder. My sister’s, Aquata’s. The realm blames me. I didn’t do it, but I have no allies who’ll believe me. Worse yet, my father—their King—was injured in the attack and he’s now in a coma. I have days to prove my innocence before they toss me into the eternal pit of torment. Thankfully, I’ll discover that I’m not as alone as I once feared. But trusting this person might very well spell the death of me…
A Witch and a Fish by Selene Charles is the third audiobook in the Grimm Chronicles and I dove right in after finishing the second. Twist, turns, revelations and transformations await you in this nail-biting installment.
Once again Shaun Grindell and Chelsea Stephens narrate giving voice to the dual narrative of Elle and Maddox. Both narrators capture the protagonists emotions, sacrifices, and determination.
Elle who was on assignment with Crowley and Hook soon finds herself in serious trouble. This tale is darker with twists, a mystery and a look into Elle’s past and FINALLY answers to what Maddox is.
WTF…I am actually starting to like Crowley. Say It Isn’t So! We learn quite a bit about our wolf. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off there. Just sayin’.
The romance is complicated, and Elle breaks so many of my rules. Yet, somehow Charles made me ok with it. ?♀️Maddox completely tugged at my heartstrings as Elle opened up and trusted. I am curious to see if the climatic ending has her back pedaling.
If you are listening to this series. Plan ahead. Grab provisions and turn off the phone… heck, call in sick. Once you start, you won’t be able to hit pause.
This series is dark, unique, addictive and downright nerve-wrecking! The Grimm fairytales were always dark and this urban fantasy with its mysteries and cases suits them just fine.

Sounds interesting! And how awesome that you can forgive the fact one characters does everything you don’t like, because the other character is so fun.. I love that.
I really wish I could get into audiobooks more.

Dark and twisty sounds really good and add in some romance and I’m in!
I do like a story with side characters you want a spin-off from. And a wolf to boot. I am not a fan of fairy tales really but this just sounds like urban fantasy to me.
fun title and it sounds like it has everything i love in a fantasy
This series sounds really good. I am loving that cover too.
