Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"An excellent read and you don’t have to be a fan of the television show to enjoy it." - Atomic Moo 

"The Icy Touch offers readers the best of both worlds; for fans of the show, it provides a deeper and richer look at the characters and the legends, for readers new to the world, it’s a great introduction and a stand-alone story that has its own pleasures. It does not disappoint." - Criminal Element Review

"The book holds all the suspense and creepiness of the show" - The Fairy Tale Site

"The novel has an excellent prologue, as well as two chapters scattered throughout the book that tell the history of Nick's line of Grimm ancestors, and how they relate to the Grimm fairytales...There is much more detail here than that which was lightly touched on during the series." - Yahoo Voices

"The action of The Icy Touch is a thrill." - Horror Novel Reviews 

Présentation de l'éditeur

Back in the 19th century a Wesen and a Grimm fight to the death. The Grimm wins, but the Wesen’s son escapes and vows revenge. In the present day, Captain Renard sends Nick and Hank to investigate an international crime cartel named Le Touche Givre (The Icy Touch). They discover this deadly gang is run by Wesen, and is involved in various illegal activities, including forced prostitution and drug pushing. As they close in on the gang, Nick begins to realise that their charismatic and dangerous leader is just as intent on tracking him down…

Did the author even watch the show? 5 mars 2014
Par Jerrhonda White - Publié sur
Format: Poche
John Shirley writes as if he knows ABSOLUTELY nothing about the personality of these characters. Monroe is whiny and annoying, Hank is more concerned about getting into a fight verbal or otherwise with Cpt. Renard, or the fact that his suits are always getting messed up (and when has Hank EVER worn a suit on the show?!), Renard has a SERIOUS attitude problem basically being that he seems to be channeling an arrogant Napoleon, Juliette has NOT forgiven Nick for keeping all the Grimm stuff from him which does not jibe with the show AT ALL!

There are just too many annoying things going on with the characters the least of which is the Eisbieber in the story isn't Bud but someone named Howie, who I believe is a friend of Bud's but why wouldn't he just use Bud in the story?

Don't waste your time and money. I only finished the book because I wanted to see how the story ended.

It might be Grimm pre-woge 25 décembre 2013
Par Gallandro - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
I can't say I read to many tie-in novels for TV shows so I can't really say if this is pretty standard for the industry but overall I found the authors decisions on quite a bit of things were strange and iffy.

First of all is this tied into the show or just loosely affiliated, because some information that came up here seems to be happening in season 3. This leads me to wonder if the author wasn't given information about the new season's story lines, or it could just mean that the contract stated certain events must occur.

I also had a problem with the entire "Coins" story line, especially when he decides to send them back to his mother that he barely knows after all of a sudden they are in the hands of a dangerous wesen cult. I would think the cop instincts were telling him that he might not be able to trust his "mom". I also didn't like how the Grimm talent is portrayed here that it seems as soon as Nick looks at someone he can tell if they were wesen is stupid and contradicts the info that has been given to us on TV. The timeline is also not nailed down very well and seems to be left vague and that makes the events happening in the book very odd since we aren't told exactly when everything is happening. I say this because if it happened before the season then shouldn't Hank be in a cast and after the season then Nick should be living with Juliet and dealing with his "Death-state" which might be his seeing red time but then why is he on the outs with Juliet. It doesn't make sense and the little inconsistencies bug the hell out of me.

Overall I'm not impressed with the novel and if this is the effort that will be made to tie in a book series I'll stick to the show.

A thrilling and suspenseful story 3 janvier 2014
Par SciFiChick - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Grimm fans will definitely want to check out this book series with all new stories from Titan Books. This first novel takes place near the end of the 2nd season, so it’s not too out of date as far as Juliette and Nick’s relationship. And Hank knows about the Wesen world – which was a big step for Nick and Hank’s partnership. We also get a backstory of Monroe that he has kept secret from everyone that comes into play in a big way. And there are a few flashbacks to Nick’s ancestor’s and history with the cursed coins and what eventually leads to the Icy Touch gang.

The Icy Touch is a thrilling and suspenseful story. Dark, violent, with plenty of different Wesen characters – it felt just like a long episode of the show. The characters were pretty spot on – including Wu and his corny humor. There’s also a point when Nick questions his career as a police detective when it conflicts with his Grimm persona. I’m surprised it doesn’t come up in the show more. I’m happy to say I enjoyed this novel more than I thought I would. The mystery, humor, and fantastic characters are all here. And I’m certainly looking forward to the next in the series.

"The breath came out of him . . . and with it came blood, bubbling up hot and thick." 16 mars 2014
Par Mark Louis Baumgart - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
***Warning. This is a review for the casual reader. Most details will be redundant for long time fans.***

This is the first original novel, or novel of any kind based on the NBC television network show "Grimm". "Grimm" is a show that is a cross between urban fantasy and the police procedural, and the star of this show is the cop Nick Burkhardt, who in the first episode, finds out that he is a legendary Grimm, a hereditary hero whose purpose is to track down, and destroy the wesen, or the werepeople who live amongst us mundanes, sometimes, but not always, as a predatory presence. He realized his purpose late in life after his aunt dies, and ends up having to figure out the rules of his new role all by himself. During the first season he had to keep his secret from his partner Hank Griffin, while having as an unofficial partner, the reformed wesen, the Blutbad (werewolf) Monroe. During the second season, Griffin is in on the secret, as is his girlfriend Juliette. Really though, you don't even need much of this to read "The Icy Touch", but it's nice to know.

As the novel opens, Captain Sean Renard, a wesen Hexenbeist himself, is assigning Burkhardt and Griffin a case involving the nasty death of a Drang-zorn, or the badger wesen Buddy Clements, who along with his wife had disappeared several days before. Buddy has turned up roasted and burned to death in one of his wesen badger holes. It turns out that the only thing that could have done this is a daemonfeuer, or dragon wesen, and one has blown into town as an enforcer for a foreign drug ring from France called La Caresse Glacée, or The Icy Touch, and it is comprised mostly of wesens. Once thought defunct, The Icy Touch is now back with a vengeance, taking on all other cartels, and laying them to waste. Oh, and they have an age-old grudge against all Grimms, with a particular hatred for all of those related to Burkhardt.

They now have their sites on taking over Portland, along with the rest of the world, with the elimination of Burkhardt as part of the deal. And they are going to do this through their charismatic leader, who is also abetted in his megalomaniacal quest by using of the fabled Coins of Zakynthos. These coins give the user great persuasive power, but while doing so, they will also slowly destroy them. This will end well for nobody.

The television show "Grimm" was never, at its heart, a show about kings, queens, and fairy dust, and its constant sidebars into such things usually leave me uninvolved, as I'm not really interested in an urban fantasy version of a nighttime soap. For me, the fun of "Grimm" is the gritty cop show parts, the parts in which Burkhardt learns about his heritage, while still being a modern cop, as he investigates the weird wesen inspired crimes, all while trying to keep things on the downlow.

So, while Griffin, Juliette, and Renard are all in on Burkhardt's secret in this novel, his adventure in this novel is still, with some historical flashbacks, a gritty, street level, crime story, mixed with Shirley's juggling of Burkhardt's private life. True, the story could have been more graphic in parts for some, but it wasn't needed, so what Shirley serves up is a quick, and exciting, pulp crime story, full of twists, turns, and last minute escapes. "The Icy Touch" by John Shirley brings back memories of those fast-paced fifties and sixties paperback crime thrillers, with some supernatural elements. This storyline could easily have gone over several episodes on the television show itself. Yes, sometimes the plot twists and escapes will delve too much towards the deaux ex machina, but Shirley is skilled enough to pull such things off.

The doings with The Icy Touch also drags Monroe and his Fuchbau girlfriend Rosalee into things, and for long-time fans, we go into detail as why Monroe had his conversion into a vegan Blutbad. So, Monroe fans will get a real healthy dose of him in this book.

On the other hand, due to the nature of this book, you should have watched a few episodes so that you will get a more detailed image of what the characters look like, and how the weres change, as Shirley is often rather vague when it comes to dealing with such details. Let's face it though, purists will always find something to complain about, and will always look for a reason to hate these media-tie ins, but if you like the show, and you're not interested in nitpicking irreverent details, you should like this novel

On the positive side, this is a stand-alone novel as nothing is continued into to the next novel in the series.

The Ultimate Grimm superfan novel 23 janvier 2015
Par Maria Kaestner - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
You will know you are a Grimm superfan after reading this novel because you will understand all of the Grimm references and tiny details AND you will cringe at every incorrect fact. While I enjoyed the behaviors and descriptions of classic Wesen we've learned to fear and admire, I seriously question whether the consultants actually did their jobs. The plot cleverly ties in the Coins of Zankythos and the presence of dirty, gang-related Wesen in Portland and oversees. The author interestingly explores Monroe's reform story and the toll that being a Grimm takes on Nick and incorporates them into the investigation. Characters like Hank and Sean Renard play a familiar role in the juxtaposition between Wesen law and police law. However, Renard can NOT fully woge because he is half-Zauberbiest, Monroe drives a VW bug not a van, the plural of Blutbad is Blutbaden, and Nick cannot tell what Wesen they are if they are not woged. If you are a fan of Grimm and the Grimmverse, be prepared for these and many other inconsistencies. The good news is, that going into this knowing you will face inaccuracies means that you can accept that there are flaws and focus on the story. The Icy Touch threaten innocent Wesen, move in on drug selling businesses, and exploit a vendetta against Grimms. The incorporation of Nick's ancestors into Wesen and world history is a nice addition, however, never completed. It would've been more satisfying if the protagonist learned about his Kessler relatives as the reader did. This is the perfect read for fans of the NBC show and the comics to delve deeper into the characters and the folklore. Just be prepared to occasionally point at pages and say, "that's not right."
