Enchanted castles and charming princes thought to exist only in stories come to life in this classically twisted fairy tale that combines the timeless quality of generations old folktales with the challenges of the modern world.

The woods of Elorium appear ordinary to Andi Grace, until birds start talking and elves answer doors. Along with three others, Andi has been whisked out of her world and finds herself the reluctant guest of the perplexing millionaire, Mr. Jackson—a stranger willing to help get them home, but who’s keeping secrets of his own.

Discovering unexpected family connections to this fairy tale land, the group must rely on each other as they dodge evil fairies and battle giants, intent on keeping them in Elorium.

Faced with characters short on whimsy and bent towards treachery, Andi, Quinn, Fredrick and Dylan are forced into fairy tale roles to find the way home. But in Elorium, happily ever after is never guaranteed.

Today we have a very special re-reveal of Janna Jennings’ young adult fantasy, A Grimm Legacy.

We all thought the original cover, designed by Ravven, was great, but after talking about the development of the series as a whole with Janna, the team here at Patchwork Press decided the Grimm Tales series needed a bit of a face lift to make the series nice and cohesive. And, well, you can see the results! (Just wait until you see the last to cover reveals for the series!)

The final book in the series, Grimm Memories, will be released later this year, and we are sure you’ll be seeing the cover reveal for that shortly. To cap off the series of fairy tale retelling will be a compilation book, with both A Grimm Legacy and Grimm Memories in one big, beautiful book! There might even be some bonus features, we’ll have to see. It’s going to be amazing!

The new cover of A Grimm Legacy should be available for purchase as a paperback starting February. Make sure to add it to your “to read” shelf on GoodReads! And let us know what you think about the new cover in the comments! 😀
