    There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of sisters Grimm on Earth.
    You may well be one of them, though you might never know it.
    You think you’re ordinary.
    You never suspect that you’re stronger than you seem, braver than you feel or greater than you imagine.
    But I hope that by the time you finish this tale, you’ll start listening to the whispers that speak of unknown things, the signs that point in unseen directions and the nudges that suggest unimagined possibilities.
    I hope too that you’ll discover your own magnificence, your own magic . . .

    This is the story of four sisters Grimm – daughters born to different mothers on the same day, each born out of bright-white wishing and black-edged desire. They found each other at eight years-old, were separated at thirteen and now, at nearly eighteen, it is imperative that they find each other once again.

    In thirty-three days they will meet their father in Everwhere. Only then will they discover who they truly are, and what they can truly do. Then they must fight to save their lives and the lives of the ones they love. Three will live, one will die. You’ll have to read on to find out who and why…
