We are joining author Kate SeRine and Kensington Publishing in celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of the Transplanted Tales. Have you read them? Today I am sharing my original review of Grimm Consequences. This novella takes place after Red and gives us Nate Grimm’s story. You won’t want to miss it… and I am loving the new cover!
Transplanted Tales #1.5
Amazon | iBook | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads
The author of Red “takes urban fantasy, crime thrillers and fairy tale characters and creates magic” in this paranormal romance novella (Caffeinated Book Reviewer).
To put it lightly, Nate Grimm has a dark past. Fortunately, no one’s bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority’s lead detective and part-time Reaper. And Nate wants to keep it that way. After centuries of torment and loneliness, he’s finally found happiness with the hot and hard-charging love of his life, Tess “Red” Little.
Of course, his love for Tess is the reason there’s a posse of Reaper judges after him, led by a sadistic bastard acquainted with Nate from once upon a time. Now, Tess will pay the price for Nate’s transgressions unless Nate severs his ties to the transplanted Tales—and Tess—forever. His enemy has the advantage of speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate’s love. And the fury of his wrath.

Originally posted March 24, 2014
Kate Serine’s Transplanted Tales have delighted me, and I was so excited about Nate’s POV in Grimm Consequences. This is a novella that takes place between Red and the Better to See You. It shares the back-story of Nate Grimm, the sexy reaper who won Tess’s heart. Serine brought him to life and made me swoon, shed a tear, and fall deeper in love with this reaper.
Mini-review: Fans of the series will be deeply satisfied with Nate’s tale.
Nate Grimm is the lead detective at the Fairytale Management Authority and a part-time reaper. He is also romantically involved with kick-ass detective Tess “Red” Little. Nate has secrets, and a dark past, and all of it is about to put those he loves in danger. The tale that unfolds is suspenseful, emotionally engaging, and completely swoon-worthy.
Call me crazy, but I love Reapers, and Nate Grimm is a favorite. I imagine him as old-fashioned, sexy, and debonair. In my mind, he resembles Neal Caffrey from the hit television show White Collar. Now imagine tattoos and beautifully defined abs..yep. Swoon-worthy from the way, he walks to his sharp attire and finger worthy hair. From the beginning of the Transplanted Tales series, Nate’s love, respect, and need to protect Tess has been clear. In Grimm Consequences, SeRine reveals just how long Nate has had these feelings. She shares details about his past, and I loved learning how and why he became a reaper.
Grimm Consequences was action-packed, suspenseful and had my heart racing as Nate and Tess’s fate was tested. SeRine gives us characters to loathe and fear, all while exposing Nate, placing Tess in danger and keeping my heart in my throat. It was brilliant and completely satisfying.
If you haven’t tried the Transplanted Tales, yet I urge you to do so. SeRine takes urban fantasy, crime thrillers, and fairy tale characters and creates magic. The tales currently available are Red, Grimm Consequences, The Better to See You, and Along Came a Spider. The fourth book, Ever After, will be released in August 2014. All the books deal with one tale, a case, and their romance.

Great thoughts on this one! I am glad that you enjoyed this one. I do like novella’s that can be a good filler for the series.
I’ve seen each book in the series posted up this year and I love the sound of them, but particularly this one for this time of the year. 🙂
