All that glitters is not gold.

When something precious is stolen from sixteen-year-old Mina Grime, she will do anything in her power to get it back, even if it means traveling to the dangerous Fae plane and battling one of the strongest fairy-tale villains yet.

However, nothing can prepare Mina for the dangerous obstacles she will face in the Fae world, or the choices she must make when love and life are on the line.

Mina stopped and parted the long weeping willow’s branches,

and could see the rose resting against Jared’s black boot. Wait…not


Teague reached down to pick up the rose and brought it to his

nose to breathe in its scent. His hair was a lighter shade of brown

than Jared’s, and his eyes were a deep blue, while Jared’s were a

haunting gray. They both had similar angular jaws and drop-deadgorgeous

looks. Teague once again was dressed in black, and Mina

had a mind to joke about whether he was going to a funeral, but he

was, so the words died on her lips before she even spoke them.

Instead, she glared at him and held out her hand, demanding

the rose without saying a word.

Teague’s eyes widened and looked her over, never once

dropping his Cheshire Cat smile. “I only came to pay my respects.”

“What respect? You don’t respect me or my family.

Otherwise, your kind never would have cursed us.”

“You’re wrong—it’s always wise to respect your enemies.”

“Well, I don’t respect you.”

“You should, Mina. Do you see what happens when you

ignore your duty—when you ignore me?” He pointed to Charlie’s

grave, and his voice became threatening. “I don’t like to be

ignored, and now you have one less distraction in your life, so you

can focus more of your time on me.”

Teague’s words confirmed her worst fears. Her actions had

led Teague to strike out against her family and kill her brother. Her

stomach dropped, bile rose in her throat, and every inch of her was

sick with the guilt his words layered on her. It was her fault, and

she knew it. But she couldn’t show him how weak she was, and

how much his words had affected her. She had one more person to

protect: her mother, and she would not be negligent again.

“You’re not welcome here. So please leave.” Mina snatched

the rose out of Teague’s hand and felt a sting in her palm. She

winced in pain but refused to acknowledge it.

Teague reached for her hand, and Mina let him open up her

palm to inspect her wound from the thorn. She was still reeling,

and her whole body shook with anger. Teague leaned forward and

blew on the small cut in her palm, and it healed itself. She ripped

her hand from his grasp and took two steps away from him, almost

falling on the ground. She needed to keep better control of herself.

She needed Jared.

“How is my dear brother?” he asked, as if reading her mind.

“Why don’t you ask him yourself?”

His eyes darkened. “We are not exactly on speaking terms.”

“It wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact that you keep

trying to kill me, would it?”

“Now, sweet Mina, our fight goes back long before you were

born. But you can’t hold it against me that I’m only doing my job.

I’m supposed to throw quests your way, and you are supposed to

try to stop me. It’s as simple as that. I can’t help it if we have a

casualty or so in the process. That’s what makes the stories so

good.” He smirked. “That’s what makes them popular. That’s

what makes me powerful.” He was so close to her now that he ran

the back of his finger across her cheek, and she flinched and

smacked it away.

“I see that you are as disgusting as ever.”

“I see that you’re getting your fight back. You know, Mina,

out of all the Grimms over the years who died at the hands of my

fables, you are by far my favorite to toy with. I wonder why that

is?” he asked, appearing to ponder the question.

“Maybe because you picked the wrong girl to mess with.”

“I don’t think so. I’ve finally found the perfect Grimm. I think

you will be the most challenging. Which means your ending, the

tale that finishes you off, will make us both famous.”

Mina’s lip trembled, and she steeled herself to not show fear.

She stood her ground and looked Teague right in the eye. “A

thousand sweet words can never disguise the rattle of a viper about

to strike. I will not drop my guard ever again. And I will end this

curse…by doing whatever…or killing whoever…I have to.”

Teague’s face turned furious, and his lips pressed into an

angry thin line.

“Then be prepared, my dear Mina, for you won’t be able to

ignore this next tale. I’ve made sure of that.” He stepped away

from her. A crack of thunder rattled the earth and she jumped,

turning in surprise. A second later, pouring rain followed, soaking

everyone within minutes. Mina turned back toward Teague, but he

was gone
