Summary from Goodreads:

In the world of Necoh, everyone fearsGrishma, 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 whenGrishma 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.

My Review

Wow!!!  This book starts off with a bang.  I have word to describe this book.  Epic.  Grishma is a riveting story that captures you after the very first page.  Once I stated this book, I couldn't put it down.  I read this book in one sitting, because I had to know what was going to happen.  What I loved about this book was how unique and fresh it was.  I haven't read another book like it, so I was enthralled with the story even more.  Kelly's writing was is so beautiful and descriptive that I was immediately pulled into that world and felt as if I was there.  I was able to picture everything going on and feel everything the characters felt.  I must say that I LOVE the characters in this story.  I couldn't help but immediately adore them.

Ryder is hunting Grishma and followed her to Earth.  He is determined to avenge his father's death and save his mother and sister.  I love Ryder!!!  He is by far my favorite character out of the whole book.  Brooklyn's life changes when Ryder accidentally sends her to his world.  It turns out that she might be the long lost princess.  That makes the story even more interesting.  What I loved about these characters were that they felt so real.  I actually got to see both these characters grow by the end of the story.  

Grishma was a fantastic book that I enjoyed reading.  There were so many twists and turns in this book that it kept me on the edge of my seat.  I couldn't quit turning the pages.  I was left breathless and shell shocked several times.  This book does leave off with a cliffhanger and it does leave me off wanting more.  I can't wait to see what trials and tribulations these characters face next.  I went ahead and bought this book on my kindle, becasue I loved it so much.  It is a book that I will definitelu reread again.  I highly recommend it!!!  Grishma is a MUST read!!!!
