The things I see aren’t for the faint of heart.

And I am no longer willing to ignore them. Not even when my family, and my best friend, tell me to keep quiet about what’s happening. They say people will think I’m crazy.

Maybe I am.

But the spirit haunting my professor’s house is definitely trying to tell me something, and I’m the only one who can see it.

With now three books, a novella and an omnibus, The Grimm cases series has found its place with my other favorite RH. What started with a bit of a crossover between The Ghost Bird and The Veil Diaries became its own thing, with an hilarious and endearing heroine and a bit of ghostly mysteries.

Mu contains the three first books, the novella and four additional chapters from each of the guys. And I have to say, that bonus content was an awesome little surprise -except maybe for the f

So Good

This series has a lot to it. Bianca is quirky and a bit weird, but she's adorable. She also has a lot of problems. It isn't hard to figure out what has happened to her in her past, but as of these books, it isn't confirmed by Bianca herself. I really hope she gets some actual help for those issues, but from the novella, it is easy to see why she is distrustful of hospitals and medical professionals. I'm not sure she can even trust Julian's mother again now that she knows the extent that s

The Mu box set contains the first three books in the Grimm Cases series by Lyla Oweds, along with the first of the series novellas. All four stories included in this one – Origins, Ghost, Blood, and Home – were addictive four-star reads that had me powering through them in no time.

The Grimm Cases is a series that needs to be read in order, with each book pulling the reader deeper into the world. There is so much to learn, with information slowly being given as the story progressed. From the char

MU: The Grimm Cases by Lyla Oweds is SO GOOD. I love that I was able to read the first three books plus the novella and bonus content, in this series a at once. I flew through this and now cannot wait to read more.

This series should be read in order. Every book builds on the last, and this series is so addictive. I absolutely love the world building. Lyla Oweds knows how to bring a reader into the world and make it feel like you’re watching events unfold first hand.

I love Bianca. She’s adorable,

Fans of reverse harems, which stay clean, are packed with magic, and hold the most quirky characters are going to enjoy this one quite a bit.

Bianca is a very, very, very shy and sheltered person, who follows her one and only best friend to college. He's not only her world but her support, since she was diagnosed with a psychological disorder years ago, one that has her seeing ghosts. But she's not so sure the supernatural isn't real, especially when a ghost isn't only haunting her but has physic

This collection includes the first 3 books in the series – Origins, Ghost, and Blood – as well as bonus chapters and the companion short Home. Which was just perfect for me as it took me a while to get into the story in Origins. Thankfully, as soon as the story pulled me in it had me in its thrall. As well, luckily for me I had the first 3 books to fly through at once. It certainly helped me jump through the story without needing to come up for air. (Something I certainly didn’t want to do!)

Mu is a bind up of the three first books in the new adult paranormal series, The Grimm Cases By Lyla Oweds.  I have really been enjoying this series, and I love that there are already 5 books out because I just want to read them all. They are pretty short so they are great for a quick paranormal mystery fix. The bind up also contains  a novella and four bonus chapters- one from each of the guys.  I also wanted to point out that this is a reverse harem romance, which I had no idea of when I read ...more

I came into this series only vaguely knowing what I was getting myself into. The paranormal aspect was what pulled me in, and kept me reading (that, and the cliffhangers!!).

Bianca is incredibly naive, to such a degree that she actually annoyed me for quite a bit of this. She was sheltered by her only friend and parents, and has a dark past. I laughed when she missed obvious innuendos, but groaned at so many of her outlandish thoughts and theories. I am honestly still unsure of how exactly I feel

This book was provided to me by Lola's Blog Tours in return for an honest review - I may have also bought the rest of the books in the series.

If you like a plot with a cute, somewhat clueless protagonist who doesn't irritate you (she is not Bella Swan), then you will love Bianca...

She lived a sheltered life, and we slowly learn more about her and her history. You do learn early on that she hides trauma, but the extent of this trauma is not yet made clear. Her cluelessness about the supernatural

MU: The Grimm Cases contains the first three books in The Grimm Cases series. It also comes with the surprise bonus of four additional chapters that are told from the guy's point of view.
I hadn't read any of The Grimm Cases prior to being sent this omnibus and I can't say how freaking great it was to have three books in one. Each of the books builds on the last and being able to just deep dive into the series on a cold snowy day without having to pause to download the next was my idea of bookish

Mu contains the three first books, the novella, and four additional chapters from each of the guys. And I have to say, that bonus content was an awesome little surprise -except maybe for the fourth chapter that ended up teasing us more than anything.

I literally read through the entire 3 books included in Mu plus the Novella in 2 days and grabbed the fourth book because I simply needed to know what was going to happen next. I am now waiting impatiently for the 5th book in the series Balance to b

Mu: The Grimm Cases Collection got off to a bit of a rocky start for me. The first few chapters made me feel completely lost. Once I settled into the story a bit more, I found the characters enjoyable. If you like quirky heroines, you'll love Bianca.

The writing was good. Aside from feeling a bit like I'd been dropped into the middle of something during those first few chapters, I enjoyed the collection. The writing flowed well, and the rest was easy to follow.

Sweet slow burning

This is a sweet but very slow moving romance. I honestly have enjoyed the slow down. This story is layered and moves at a more realistic pace. The mfc is damaged and broken from her past and then her complete knowledge of her very existence is torn from her. So you understand why she is shy and scared all the time but on that same note I can not wait to see her buck up and deal with some of her issues. The guys are awesome and varied with personalities of their own. Lots of sl

The story line to this book is a good idea but I soon realize that the blurb is very misleading. I started this book expecting it to be a sort of ghost story but it turns out this is a full blown fantasy novel with other things than just ghosts. There are phrases that are a bit repetitive and ended up bothering me after a while. Also, i have a really hard time liking Bionca. She’s a bit weird and not very relatable. How naive she is makes her a bit unrealistic. I get that some young girls can be ...more

This book was long, but totally worth it! The premise that a very sheltered girl who, for most of her life, thought she was mentally sick has actually had the powers to see/interact with ghosts. Now as she discovers what she is capable of, she is overwhelmed and trying to figure out who to trust, what is real, and where she fits in with four, powerful attractive men.

It was a big page-turner for sure and while many different things happen, there are still so many more unanswered questions that

I'm glad I got to read all these at once! The characters had a great depth to them, and Bianca is easily my favorite. She's unique, with a rough backstory, and some things to work through, but that doesn't mean she isn't strong. The boys are a little overprotective, but they're coming from a good place. The story is engaging, with great pacing. I blew through one book in each sitting, and I look forward to reading more about Bianca and company in the future. I'm definitely curious about Bianca's ...more

I read the first 3 books when they first came it, and while I enjoyed them, I wasn’t fully hooked - mainly because I didn’t really understand it. With book 4 out, I nabbed this collection for a reread and totally changed my mind! This is the kind of series you probably should read twice, not just for enjoyment, but clarity. I enjoyed it so much more the second go around, and now I’m ready for book 4!! Plus this has bonus content.
This is a terrific box set. It has the first 3 books. Plus bonus scenes/POVs from the first 2 books and the precursor novella. This series is one I have re-read several times and each time I pick up clues I missed before. I love Bianca’s wild but semi-true theories and how she shakes up the guys lives. You should definitely check this one out!

Once again stepping out of my normal reading... think this is becoming a habit.. :) and found myself completely intrigued with this series. Well written and a story to tell that's for sure. Can't even begin with the characters... they are so well together and so well, you'll have to read this to know what I'm talking about. ...more

Twists and turns

This story is pretty intense and my heart hurts for the main character. She is so naive. Think 12ish year old in an 18 year old body. She has no grip on reality which both hurts the heart and makes her endearing. As the story progresses, she gets better and makes strides towards gaining sanity/reality, but she is still so socially young. There are hints of trauma in her past although it is not elaborated on. I think a full explanation will come eventually. And in the interest of

I had no idea what to expect and I truly fell in love with this series. I felt compelled to keep reading to find out what could possibly happen next. There is a lot going on and even by the end of this set there are still so many questions that need answers. I so need the next book soon. Bianca is such a mystery to us and herself. We only get a glimpse of what she is truly able to do and her past. Add in so many different male characters. Some you think she can trust and others you aren’t sure o ...more

I am so in love with this series! Bianca is truly one of a kind and she has me laughing so many times with her quirky nature. The over all story line and world building is also pretty amazing. The characters are well thought out and fit so well together. I am looking forward to seeing where it all leads. The bonus content rocked as well!

This series is already my favorite rh and has been as soon as I found out about it and all this did was add to my conviction about that fact. One of the main things I look for in a series is the world and relationship building and this has it in spades. If you’re thinking of trying it out, read Mu. The bonus content just sweetens the pot!
