The long version From the synopsis above, you can get a sense of Deen s satirical and hilarious sense of humor as well as her interest in genre fusion Full disclosure I know the author personally, having met her at a writing conference several years ago True Grime is her YA debut, My Opinion Some of you may know how much I adored What Happens In Vegas by Natasha I was then happy when she asked me to review her new book True Grime.
True Grime is about Pepper and her partner Harley and how they have to keep the fairies from harming humans They are part of a task force called True Grime They get assigned to find one of them most dangerous criminals Claude and have to stop his evil plan of killing humans They have to go undercover as teenagers to track down Claude You will enjoy how Pepper reacts to the human world She has no experience with them and it creates some laugh out loud funny situations The book also dives into the world of bulling I also really enjoyed the faires full names like Pepper Petunia Powder Puff and Harley Hands I also loved how Pepper would get w Pepper Powder Puff and her partner Harley Hands were fairy cops in training They were junior members of the True Grime squad An elite team utilized to keep the evil villains from spreading Violent Illness of Unusual Strength and Resistance viruses to humanity When the biggest and meanest of the baddies breaks out of the Menacer s Asylum, our dynamic duo are unleashed on Twilight Twinkle aka Claude Von Beulow Passing as a human high schooler isn t the easiest transition for our rough and tumble Powder Puff and she has to tackle some pretty big issues to save humanity, like whether or not humans are worth saving at all.
This was like a fairytale on Red Bull and Ritalin From the first page, it was full speed ahead with the whimsy and alliterative names The snot weapons nearly Grime concerns the duo, Pepper and Harley, as they attempt to prevent the fairies from doing further damage to humans their task force is called True Grime Claude is the antagonist He is portrayed as truly evil no conscience, no compassion, etc Pepper and Harley are sent to stop Claude in his murderous tracks The story takes off from there.
The characters overall were fun to get to know Pepper s reactions to the human world were amusing as she had never really experienced the human world She was a different kind of character inquisitive, intelligent, and idealistic Harley was amusing as well Whenever Pepper began to feel for him, she would immediately go on the defensive and their little interactions will amuse the reader The secondary characters were not focused upon overly much, only the antagonist, Clause, was truly a Review taken from my blog, The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia.
First Sentence In The City, crime never slept.
I tend to either love or hate books with faeries, with no room for a middle ground feeling concerning them True Grime hit the nail on the head with an original take on faeries, having them be protectors of the human race with the bonus of including some pretty funny bantering between Pepper and Harley partners as Grime cops True Grime is the first book I have read were the faeries are the main focus of the story, and where humans take a very backseat role Given that, I was definitely impressed with how things played out and with how well the story flowed and the interactions between the characters like the relationship of Pepper
So this is fantasy book about faeries and all kinds of magical creatures Usually I don t read those kind of books but at the moment I m actually reading two Well technically one because I just finished this one, but it s this one and The Iron King By Julie Kagawa and I absolutely love it but that is not what this review is about This review is about the fantabulous book True Grime By Natasha Deen Like I said I didn t know if I was going to like it and the first couple chapters were a bit slow but I think it s because I was reading with a bunch of people around and talking When I started reading by myself in a quiet place it started getting way better so that s my theory and I m keeping it that way The book wa I seriously have to talk about this book Have you ever read a book and thought to yourself, Wow, the things that go on in this authors mind must be insane OR maybe you find yourself thinking, Do they know something we don t know Well, those are just a few thoughts that crossed my mind while reading this book However, after I finished I think I had even questions in my head than were there when I began.
Like, what is the ocean made up of Do you think thunderstorms are a product of us pissing off a fairy somewhere What if a tornado is really just a fairy fart Or a hurricane is the product a fairy bubble bath Maybe just maybe, a rainbow is something we get to see when the fairy people are happy with us Well, no matter the questions I have one thing is for certain, this book totally rocks If I m going to 100% honest, I ll tell ya
