Blind Destiny and other Grimm's Circle titles (adults only )

Please continue reading only if you are an adult

Blind Destiny 

by Shiloh Walker is the latest in her Grimm's Circle series.  These are definitely different from the typical fairy tales and combine very erotic reads with creative explanations for some of the familiar characters that have been reimagined in multiple venues over the years.  I remember being shocked at the difference between the cartoon of Gulliver's Travels and the actual book itself by Jonathan Swift (not least of which was the method for extinguishing fire that Gulliver used, yech) and the actual tales by the Brothers Grimm are usually very different from the Disney reworkings.  This series is just as radically different but fascinating although I think I reached my personal tolerance for blood and gore in this particular story.  I am not a big fan of horror stories which is probably why I don't like zombie tales either.  That being said, I really liked Luc and was sad for him in a previous story (Tarnished Knight) so I was very glad to see that he is finally moving on.  I have mentioned before that I have a morbid fascination about blindness, having always feared as a child that I would lose my sight someday and be unable to read all of the books that I was dying to get to so I have always been intrigued by the idea of borrowing someone else's eyes to see.  Luc has this ability and is able to use his companion animal's eyes for short periods of time as well as the eyes of those around him who give him that privilege.  It's a fascinating twist to the story.

My Goodreads review of Blind Destiny is at this link.

There is a contest for a unique 'angel's feather pendant' to celebrate the release of Blind Destiny at this link.

There are multiple novellas in the series (and some have been released with two in one volume so make sure you look at the descriptions if you are purchasing the stories.

The first two novellas in the series are in The First Book of Grimm, Candy Houses and No Prince Charming.  My Amazon review is at this link.  The third and fourth novellas are in The Second Book of Grimm, Crazed Hearts and Tarnished Knight (which has some of Luc's story).  My Amazon review is at this link.  The fifth novella is Locked in Silence and my Amazon review is at this link.  The reviews are under ELF2060 and as always, a 'yes, this was helpful' vote is appreciated if appropriate.

There is also a free read in this series if you would like to get a feel for the style but be forewarned, it is definitely not meant to stand alone and seems to have evoked very strong responses in those who read it and were unaware that it was erotica.  It is meant to transition between novellas 2 and 3.  I Thought It Was You (please click the cover below)
