Along Came A Spider, By Kate Serine

Along came a spider. . .

When Trish Muffet is attacked at a grisly crime scene, the last person she expects to come to her rescue is Nicky "Little Boy" Blue. But since walking away from everything two years before, Nicky's been doling out vigilante justice as "The Spider," taking on the vicious predators of the night in hopes it'll lead him to his ultimate target--Vlad Dracula. And he needs Trish's help.

Although Nicky's renegade style goes against everything Trish stands for, she'll do what she must to bring Dracula down. With danger stalking her, Trish knows the only person she can count on is the one man who has the power to leave her breathless. There's no way she's letting this spider frighten her away. . .

Crystal's Review:

                Every once in a while, you find a book that you start reading, and you just can’t seem to put it down no matter what you try.  That happened to me with this book.  When I first agreed to review this book, I didn’t know that it was the third book in the series, but once I got into the story I went ahead and bought the first 2 books.  Trust me, when it comes to me buying books in a series, that means A LOT.

                Growing up, you hear about all the fairy tales that are out there.  Miss Muppet, Little Red Riding Hood, Little Boy Blue, The Sandman.  All of those characters are brought to life in this book, but in a way you would NEVER expect.  Being able to take what is considered a classic story, twist and turn it into something even better than it was before takes skill.  And that skill is something that Kate SeRine has. 

                This book shows the insane amount of imagination that Kate has, and that is completely incredible.  The characters in the story were written to an amazingly level, the situations that they were involved in were also written well.  It was almost as though you were in the story with them.  I really enjoyed how taking the different characters from the classics, even the three pigs, she was able to describe them AS HUMANS in a way that they still had the “pig like qualities” about them.

                All in all, this is a complete MUST READ and if I ever scored books over a 5 paw, this book would be one of the few that I would do that for.  Along Came A Spider will make you laugh, smile and keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for more to come.

Once upon a time, a spell went awry, stranding Make Believe characters in the ordinary world. Since then, Tess "Red" Littlea/k/a Little Red Riding Hood, has worked as an Enforcer for the Chicago branch of the Fairytale Management Authority. But, consider yourself warned--she's not just some waif with a basket of goodies. All grown up and with nothing to lose, a gun and combat boots is more her style. And Red's new assignment threatens to be short on happily ever afters…

Someone is murdering transplanted Tales in gruesome fashion. The list of fictional characters capable of such grisly acts is short and includes more than one of Red's old flames. And if that wasn't bad enough, there's another complication, in the form of sexy, enigmatic Nate Grimm, the FMA's lead detective and part-time Reaper. Used to following her own rules and living life on the edge, Red has managed to avoid taking on a partner until now. But Nate's dark side makes him perfect for a case like this. That is, if she can trust him. Because if there's one thing Red knows for sure, it's that believing in the wrong person can have big, bad consequences…

Once upon a time, a spell went awry and Make Believe characters were cast into the ordinary world. And the results aren’t always happily ever after…

Everyone thinks fairy godmothers can do no wrong. But if not for a certain spell mis-cast by Lavender Seelie, Cinderella’s former fairy godmother, the Tales would not be stuck in the Here and Now. Fortunately for Lavender, she’s about to get a second chance at a happy ending…

The Refuge, a sanctuary for wayward Tales, seems like the perfect place for Lavender to start a new life—especially when she discovers an unexpected ally in Seth, the brooding werewolf who’s been typecast as a villain ever since his run in with Little Red Riding Hood. But when humans from nearby towns start turning up dead, their bodies mutilated with archaic Tale symbols, Lavender wonders if Seth’s deep sensuality has blinded her to the truth. And that distraction could put innocent lives in danger. Including her own…
