Wow. All I have to say is amazing and really great story! I'm 13 and yet this story drew me in with all the plot twists and new Everafter characters. The Fairy Tale Detectives is an awesome first book and I would definitely recommend the series for any fairy tale lover. :)

Sabrina and Daphne Grimm have been orphans since the day their parents disappeared. Since then, they have been moved from foster home to foster home, each crazier and more dangerous than the next. Then suddenly their grandmother appears to claim them. The grandmother their father told them was dead. And she wants them to believe that they are descendants of the Brothers Grimm and therefore the heirs to the role of protectors of the fairy tale characters that inhabit this world.

Sisters Sabrina and Daphne Grimm are sent to live with their grandmother in Ferryport Landing in New York, the grandmother which they formerly believed dead, approximately a year and a half after the disappearance of their parents. They are soon met with a surprising discovery - they find out that fairy tale creatures, better known as "Everafters", exist, after said "dead" grandmother is kidnapped along with her friend Mr Canis by a giant. Sabrina and Daphne, with the help of a shape-shifting fairy named Puck, a Mirror, and a short guy called Jack who speaks really, really weirdly, have to find and save their grandmother, and solve the mystery of What is Going On Here?

For Sabrina and Daphne Grimm, life has not been a fairy tale. After the mysterious disappearance of their parents, the sisters are sent to live with their grandmother--a woman they believed was dead! Granny Relda reveals that the girls have two famous ancestors, the Brothers Grimm, whose classic book of fairy tales is actually a collection of case files of magical mischief. Now the girls must take on the family responsibility of being fairy tale detectives.

"You're kidding, right?" said Sabrina hopefully. "You're not going to let that smelly kid stay here with us?"
