Grishma - 5-Star Review!

Welcome to my stop on the Grishma blog tour hosted by YA Bound.  Click HERE to see the rest of the blog tour schedule!

Wow... I'm not usually the biggest fan of fantasy pieces, but as soon as I saw this cover, I had to know if the book was half as good as it looked on the outside.  But it wasn't... it was sooo much BETTER!  Rarely to I give a book a 5-star review, but this one earns it!

Author Kelly Anne Blount weaves a magical tale filled with complex characters that is brought to life with her brilliant descriptions.  Every other-worldly creature, flower and detail are artfully designed to draw the reader deeper into the book.  I sat down with the intention of reading just a few pages during a short break and looked up to see that I had been engrossed for over an hour without realizing it!

Grishma is not just a story, it is an experience.  You will travel with Brooklyn as she is led by Ryder to his homeland of Necoh in effort to save Brooklyn's life and take the life of Grishma.  So set apart some time, because once you open this book, you are not going to be able to close it until the final page.  And even then, you are left with a book-hangover wishing for more!

Summary from Goodreads:
In the world of Necoh, everyone fears Grishma, a hideous murderous beast responsible for ruining or ending the lives of anyone who dare cross her.

As a young boy, Ryder lived with his family, deep in the caves underneath the Kadin Forest, unaware of the horrors of the world. His simple world was turned upside down one horrible night whenGrishma attacked his family, killing his father and kidnapping his mother and younger sister.

From that night on, Ryder devoted his life to killing Grishma. He tracked the monster from Necoh, to our world, and back again. Unfortunately, during his quest, he accidentally transported Brooklyn, a high school junior into his tumultuous world, where she is mistakenly identified as Princess Sophie, the missing princess of Sumner.

Days after Princess Sophie’s return,Grishma plots and manipulates the King into drugging and marrying off his only daughter to Prince Algid of Dratun. Desperate to save Brooklyn, who now believes she is the long lost princess, his mother, and his little sister, Ryder embarks on the deadliest part of his quest.

Will he save Brooklyn? Will she ever regain her memory? What will become of his mother and sister?

Through epic adventure, loss, and love,GRISHMA depicts the strength of the human spirit and the tight bonds formed by the unique creatures of Necoh.

About the Author
I’m an avid writer by night and an Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) teacher by day. Through my work as a teacher, I am able to closely examine human behavior and tell made up stories on a regular basis. Both of these skills come in handy when I sit down to write my novels!
When I’m not at work or writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our five furry rescues (four cats and one dog), my friends, and of course my family!
