This book is action packed. There’s so much fighting going on, I could barely keep still while reading it. I grew up with kung fu and action movies, so The League of Skull and Bones had me tingle in all the right ways. Here’s a bit more about the book before I continue with my thoughts on it:

Jess Grimm has the ability to travel to any dimension in the multiverse. There’s only one problem… it’s killing her.
Jess is in a race against time to find a device that can slow the progression of the power inside her, but she isn’t alone. Others want her power, and they don’t care how they get it, or if she is dead or alive when they do.
The only person willing to help her is the mysterious Ronan Sparrow a member of the League of Skull & Bones, one of the very groups that want her power. But what does Ronan want in return? Can Jess trust him or will she find herself alone with enemies on all sides?
The League of Skull & Bones, Book 1 of The Grimm Chronicles

Jess is a very interesting female lead. Scarred out of her image of herself – the pretty girl that always looks perfect and finds flirting easy, she is now focused on fighting. For her friends, for her life, for what she considers to be right. Trapped between the “I don’t do boyfriends” mantra, her need to reconcile with how she sees herself now, and the need to not be alone, Jess makes a shaky way through a dark world of paranormal abilities, never quite knowing who to trust.

Merric, the enigmatic bar owner with unknown powers and a mystery of a past, was by far my favorite male in the story. The one who does not promise or offer help, yet is there right on cue, I found myself rooting for him from the first moment he was introduced.

The evil woman in the story, Nyla, with her signature flowers and a need to go after everyone, was a great choice of opponent for Jess. Add that to traveling through dimensions, powerful devices, factions that all have their own interests. and time running out, and you have yourself a nice thrill traveling alongside Jess.

I can’t wait for what’s next in this series!
