Book Review: Grishma by Kelly Anne Blount

Grishma (Necoh saga #1) by Kelly Anne Blount
Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy)
Date Published: March 10, 2013
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

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 when Grishma 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.

Grishma is the first book in the Necoh Saga by Kelly Anne Blount. This story had quite a bit of action that kept my attention pretty well. I would have liked some more details about things. Grishma for example, what does she look like? What is she after? She's manipulative and smart, so she has some kind of game plan. What is it?

Brooklyn was frustrating at times. I know she spent some of the time drugged, so this excludes her drug induced state. When she was normal, she just didn't seem to have much sense. So, I'm not sure what to think about her yet. I think she just needs to mature a bit more. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her. There is one thing that happened between her and the price, that I really wasn't happy about, but she thought she was the princess at the time.

Ryder was more fun. I liked his personality better, and he was smart. To me, he seemed more interested in Brooklyn than she was of him through most of their interactions up until the end. Granted, they spend most of the book apart.

I'm on the fence with this one. I think I just needed some more details. I'm hoping to get some more in the next book.
