This review was first posted on Music, Books and TeaGrishma isn’t the kind of book I’d normally read, but I’m pleased that I decided to give it a go, as I was introduced to the interesting world of Necoh and a fun plotline that kept me entertained throughout the quick read.I really couldn’t get to grips with Brooklyn, the main female character of Grishma. She was just a little too whiny for my liking, and I couldn’t warm to her character at all. I know she couldn’t help being drugged by the memory potion, and it sucked that she got married off to a Prince as soon as she arrived at the castle as Princess Sophie, but she was just too…sappy, for me. However, I do still hold out hope for her! For me, Ryder was just an okay character, but I preferred his chapters to Brooklyn’s because they seemed to have a lot more action in them which kept me hooked! The two characters I liked the most were Alexia and Brianna, and I’m interested to see what kind of role they play in the rest of the story. (Assuming there is a sequel…?)I thought the Grishma storyline was the most interesting part of the book, and I’m really interested to see what happens next with the beast and whether or not Ryder gets to exact his revenge. I really hope so, and if it can’t be Ryder, I’d like to see Brooklyn take the beast on. I’m all for girl power here. The twist with the King of Sumner and Grishma was clever, I didn’t expect it, but I can’t see their alliance standing for much longer, especially as Grishma’s true intentions were exposed at the end of the book.Grishma is a quick fantasy read that sets up a good, if at times predictable, storyline. It’s a shame that I wasn’t a fan of the two main characters more, but the plot did make up for that, and I’m interested to see where Blount takes the story next.I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
