Armageddon Rules

A Grimm Agency Novel, #2

Armageddon Rules is the sequel to Free Agent by the sarcastic and clever J.C. Nelson. I enjoyed this second foray into the world of Marissa and the Grimm Agency. It had been a little while since I had read Free Agent, so I was a bit vague on a couple of the characters. Luckily, J.C. Nelson recaps who they are and why they want Marissa dead, etc without a cumbersome info dump. Sufficient time has passed since the first book and Marissa has grown confident in her role as partner in the agency. Marissa is a great character that is so easy to root for. I love her approach to the magical disasters that lay around every corner; they usually involve a gun. The whole mashup of the modern world and Kingdom, the Fairy Tale one is handled uniquely and is terrific fun. My favorite things are the Kingdom Postal Service and the Monster Trucks! I cannot wait to get my hands on Wish Bound coming in September 2015.


Book Blurb for Armageddon Rules

Marissa Locks, newly appointed partner of the Grimm Agency, has a reputation for making a mess of magical matters—although causing Armageddon is a new low, even for her…

Marissa is due for a little happily ever after. After all, she did kill the evil Fairy Godmother, end a war, and snag a sweet promotion within the Fairy Godfather's magical-problem-solving Agency. But between maintaining a relationship with someone whose amorous advances can cause third-degree burns, dealing with a killer-poodle infestation, and helping her best friend, Princess Ari, learn to wield spells more powerful than curing a hangover, she’s not getting as much peace and quiet as she hoped.

When an enemy from her past appears to exact a terrible revenge, Marissa’s life goes from hectic to hell on earth. With Grimm inexplicably gone and Ari trapped by a sleeping spell, Marissa decides to fight fire with hellfire—and accidentally begins a countdown to the apocalypse.

With the end of days extremely nigh, Marissa will have to master royal politics, demonic law, and biblical plagues in a hurry—because even the end of the world can’t keep the Agency from opening for business…
