This is the coolest book, well, anthology, ever!!!
What a fantastic idea! Editors Owen and Alkaf worked with 18 well known authors to create a story from multiple writers, characters and perspectives! Each chapters flows into the next seamlessly leading the reader to the murderer!

In Grimoire, we are introduced to the Galileo Academy - a campus of magic that has recently changed its focus to reflect our changing times. One professor, Septimus Dropwork, did not welcome these changes and he continue

"follows the untimely murder of a professor at an esteemed wizarding school and the efforts of various students to track down his killer, with each chapter portraying a different character’s perspective"

Each novel by a different author I adore? This sounds like a combination of old plots repurposed in such a new, original, that I CANNOT WAIT. I love any way that classical structure is demolished, I'll HAVE to read this.

POV: Multiple

The Grimoire of Grave Fates is about a series of students in a magical academy trying to solve the murder of their professor. I did like reading from each of the students point of view. Each character was written by a different author. I didn’t really notice a difference in writing styles. It would have been better if there were not so many POV. I did get confused with all t

A YA anthology that also happens to be a murder mystery set at a magic school, where each linked chapter is written by different author.

Thanks Netgalley and Delacorte Press for this eARC, these opinions are my own. I think this is such a unique way to tell a story! Each chapter is written by a different author from a different character perspective. But rather than a typical anthology the main plot is the same across all 18 chapters. Galileo Academy For The Extraordinary teaches kids to develop their magical skills, once exclusive to old rich white men, now full of a diverse group of students. Professor Dropwort believes in the ...more

one of the most exciting anthologies i've read, THE GRIMOIRE OF GRAVE FATES is the inclusive magical school we've all longed for. a murder mystery penned by eighteen different authors and their respective characters, this book chronicles the adventures of students at galileo academy for the extraordinary as they gather clues, find evidence, and form alliances while trying to solve the murder of the professor of magical history, septimius dropwort, whom nearly everyone at the academy hated and ha ...more

I am giving this book a 3 star rating since there are no half stars, however I would personally give it a 3.5. That being said, I will be DNF-ing this book.
I still rate it a 3.5 because I do feel that it has potential, but I am struggling tremendously with the writing style. Some parts are amazing and captivating while others feel like they are written by someone else entirely.
It’s a brilliant concept but at 30% through the book, I personally feel like there’s too much going on and yet nothing

Most of all, The Grimoire Of Grave Fates made me feel loved.

It’s got murder and magic and a cast of characters I love dearly. It is one of the smartest anthologies I have read, and the massive amount of talent in the lineup of authors shines through clearly. I spent a single chapter with each character, and I came out of every single one connected and invested in every single one of their stories. And a mystery is woven throughout the entire book? Pure genius.

And, I just KNOW how much multiple p

The Grimoire of Grave Fates is one of the most interesting books I have read this year. I am usually not a fan of multiple authors and story tellers but this book was done extremely well. Each story flowed into the next perfectly, so very well done on that end!!

I am a huge fan of all things magical and witches and extraordinary. This book did not disappoint me at all!! A magical academy with a murder mystery, such a perfect read to stay at home and be cozy during this winter. The cover of this b
