When Caris' unearthly musical talent attracts the attention of the Wild Hunt, the Welsh farm girl is stolen away to serve as a faery grim, a herald of death. Two centuries later she's finally escaped back to the human world - and into the present-day life of a reclusive and heartbroken American musician.
Music was Liam's whole life - until a crushing betrayal left him desperate to flee the public eye. Yet long-dormant passions awaken within him after a powerful storm strands a beautiful, strong-willed woman on his isolated farm. When a fae prince bent on ruling both human and faery realms threatens Caris' life, Liam must decide if he can finally believe in love again, not just for her sake but for the sake of two worlds.
From the best-selling author of Changeling Moon, this sweeping and passionate story of paranormal romance follows two souls from different centuries who lost everything...and found that only love can save them.

"Not my favorite but decent"
Not sure if this story was about Caris and Liam or the Queen Fairy and her Dark Hunter. I think I prefer the Queen story over Caris and Liam.
While the story was good it wasn't due to the main characters it was actually due to the supporting characters and some of the returning ones.
I enjoyed Caris as she was strong and endured however Liam was plain and simple weak and whinny. I mean really after three years you can't get over your wife cheating on you and all the sudden you can't play music which supposed to be the best in your life, man up I say. Caris and Liam's love story was just not believable I just couldn't empathize with him.
Also most of the story was between 2 worlds so while there was character depth in the Fairy Realm the Mortal Realm story was just boring with a weak male lead.
I really liked Liam and Caris. Actually I liked the entire story. From Caris being taken by the evil Fae, Maelgyn, to her becoming human again, naked, in front of Liam. Embarrassing for her and wonderful for Liam. Even with a concussion he knew immediately what he wanted.
Love, love, love Ranyon. What an awesome character. Love his “dontcha know” and “I have a charm fer that, a’course ” Although he was an Ellyll the narrator referred to him as an Essiss. I don’t get that pronunciation.
Now, let’s talk about the other characters. Maelgyn, the insane Prince who wanted to rule the world of the Fae as well as the human world. Rhedyn, Maedgyn’s “girlfriend.” Aurddolen, the Draigddynion ruler. Lucien, Lord of The Wild Hunt and Queen Gwenhidw. Morgan and Jay of Storm Warrior.
There was a little sexual tension but no sex until the last chapter.
This was a wonderful book but I think I would have become very frustrated if I’d just tried to read it and try to figure out how to pronounce these weird names.
As to the narrator: Ms. Eyre did a great job. Yeah, all her men sound just alike but at least they sound like men.
Love this story. It has been a great series. I hope this isn't the end of the saga though because I would really like to see The Lord of the Hunt find love. I have grown to like his character and hope that he can have a happy ending.
"Good Book but the ending stinks."
ugh I want to lorian and the queen to get together. now we will never know if they do or not. erg.
"Other kin and magical"
Good story ready for next one. The books been a joy to listen too want more.
"WANT THIS SERIES AS A MOVIE"
I loved this series. It is everything I love about Fantasy books. The characters were brought to life by the narrator & I could see this series on the big screen or as a made for TV movie. It could even be a Family Fantasy with the sex scenes left out. There weren't that many of those which made the series itself better IMO. Some book series are better without erotica but this had just enough romance/sex in it to satisfy my needs. It is one series that taming down the sex could be something the entire family could enjoy.
I really would like to see it made into a movie because it is magical enough to grab the attention of children but enough themes and action to keep an adult mesmerized. I fell in love with Ranyon from the first book and couldn't get enough of the little guy. In my mind, he was partially "Groot & maybe with a little Dwarf thrown in but has a personality that won't quit. You can't help but love him and look forward to his parts in the books.
The first 3 books [and I hope there are more to come] each tell a tale of adversity and the struggles each couple has to find happiness. The wicked Fae have turned one of them into a Grim. You could tell that the research into Irish Mythology was extensive and made the books come alive. Sadly, I'm not ready to give the series up yet so I hope this wasn't just a trilogy and I can go back to the magical realm of the Grim Series.
I devour books and these books were addicting to me and I really hated to see the end. I know that I will return to listen to them again just to fall into that fantasy world Dani Harper created. I felt every emotion there was at some point in the books, fear, excitement, anxiety, frustration, wonder and a sense of mystery & romance. I haven't been this excited about a series in quite a long time & waited a few days to write my review because I wanted to see if my initial response to this series was the same as when the closing lines of book 3 ended. No change for me...I LOVE THIS SERIES and crave more. Are books 4, 5 and 6 ready yet?
"Always a wonderful Listen"
The books in Dani Harper's Grim Series are an automatic listen for me. These stories spin you between time and worlds so effortlessly you don't quite know where you settle when the book has ended. I love the author's imagination and her ability to make the faery realm a believable place. The emotions run high in this third installment and I felt every moment of cheated life and music Caris felt when she was punished and turned into a grim for centuries.
I cheered when the once broken-hearted Liam's eyes were opened to all that was invisible to normal humans and took her in. The chemistry was dynamic amidst all of the fighting and struggles to keep Caris in the human realm. Then I finally let out a pent up breath when I'd gotten to the end and there was still an HEA to be had. This was one great ride.
This is a good story, a great part of a great series. The narration was superb.
