Review: Grimm Consequences (Transplanted Tales #1,5) by Kate SeRine


Grimm Consequences takes place a couple of months after Red, Nate is happy with Tess, and wants to bury the past. Unfortunately, even our darkest secrets will come forth at some point. Nate knew he did something unforgiveable when he took Sebille’s life. But he didn’t have a choice; it was either Red or her, and damn it if he would lose Red now that he finally was in her life again.

Trouble is….it’s not the first time he broken the Reaper rules to protect Tess, and most likely won’t be the last either. Does he regret it? No. Would he do it again? In a heartbeat. But he does fear the consequences of his actions, mainly because he knows Tess won’t let him go to judgment without a fight. She may not have told him, but he KNOWS she loves him. When he sees an old enemy among the judges, Nate knows that the verdict will be more than harsh this time.

Grimm Consequences is the story of Nate’s judgment, and what happened when the Reaper Judges came to collect Nate’s debt. When one of the judges; Demetrius shows up and starts taunting Nate, he knows this is beyond him just breaking the rules to safe Tess. This is personal.

Will Tess be able to handle more of Nate’s secrets? Will Nate?

Hand on my heart, I could get lost into the beautiful and rough tales that Kate writes. You get drawn into the story, you lose your way and when you’re at the last page and closes the book, you want to go back to the beginning and read it one more time – just to stay a little longer.

I just recently started to dig into the Transplanted Tales, but I am hooked, heart, mind and soul. Grimm Consequences starts digging further into Nate’s secrets, and who he truly is –or maybe I should say WAS. After meeting Tess all those years ago, he changed. She is the reason why he became a Reaper for the Tales, she is his lifeline into the Ordinary world, his biggest weak spot and his great love. This book shows exactly what lengths Nate are willing to go to keep Tess safe. I loved every page of it.

Haven’t read the Transplanted Series by Kate SeRine yet? Start with Red (see my previous review), and work your way from there. This is a MUST READ series!!

You reap what you sow...

Saying Nate Grimm has a dark past is an understatement. Fortunately, no one's bothered to look too closely at the Fairytale Management Authority's lead detective and part-time Reaper. And that's the way Nate wants to keep it. For 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 in speed, malice and brutality. But the Reapers have underestimated the depth of Nate's love and devotion. And the fury of his wrath. . .


Kate SeRine (pronounced “serene”) faithfully watched weekend monster movie marathons while growing up, each week hoping that maybe this time the creature du jour would get the girl. But every week she was disappointed. So when she began writing her own stories, Kate vowed that her characters would always have a happily ever after. And, thus, her love for paranormal romance was born.


Kate is the author of the award-winning Transplanted Tales series, available from Kensington Books. She lives in a smallish, quintessentially Midwestern town with her husband and two sons, who share her love of storytelling. She never tires of creating new worlds to share and is even now working on her next project.
