At Grimrose Académie, the fairy-tale deaths continue. And unless the curse is broken, one of the girls could be next.
Nani, Yuki, Ella, and Rory have discovered the truth about the curse that's left a trail of dead bodies at Grimrose. But the four still know nothing of its origins, or how to stop the cycle of doomed fates.
And each girl harbors her own secret. One is learning why she was brought to the school. One struggles to keep her new and deadly power under control. One knows exactly how much time she has left.
And one, trying to escape her dark destiny, will come even closer to fulfilling it.
Can the girls change their own stories and break the curse? Or must one of them die to end it forever?

Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!
I am SO excited to have the chance to read this book! I read the first book in the series The Grimrose Girls, last year. I instantly fell in love and immediately needed the second book. Well it sure did not disappoint!
Our girls are back. Ella, Yuki, Rory, and Nani have figured out the truth behind the curse. Now they need to pick up the pieces, and figure out how to break the curse cycle. But each girl is hiding a secret of their own. The book will immerse you in the story of each girl and their paths. Now will they be able to break the curses of their stories and find their happy endings?
There is so many twists, turns, and adventure. I love this world, and I am so excited to be back! This book is one of my favorite fairytale retellings with its fresh look on a few of our favorite heroines.
What I love:
-the LGBTQI+ representation is so strong in this book. I love how it isn’t a second thought or a box to check off in terms of diversity. Plus the slight nod to demi was wonderful to see.
-the world building is fantastic as always. I love the dark academia feel through this series
-multiple POVs which keeps the pacing fast. I didn’t want stop reading at all.
-the twists I didn’t see coming. The growth of all the characters was also wonderful.
I absolutely loved this sequel! I think it did a great job tying up the stories from the last book. I loved all the characters and cheered for them through the story. The ending was also perfect! I can’t wait to read more from this author! 4.5 stars out of 5
