There are only a few young writers who know how to put the right word in all the right places to create a masterpiece. Aariel Portera is not an exception. Ever since a little girl, everything creative such as arts, dance, music, language and writing fascinated her. Hearing bedtime stories from her father, she developed a love for literature and writing from a very young age and thank god that she didn’t let it go. If she had, we wouldn’t be reading stories like The Robber Bridegroom: A Grimm Tale with her name on it. Now residing in California, she enjoys her time concocting story plots and watching movies.
The Robber Bridegroom: A Grimm Tale is the story of two sisters, Rosa and Ruby Muller, who dwell in a peaceful town of Sommerwood in the German county. Soon to be married, Ruby is a feisty beautiful woman while her sister Rosa is mature for her age and subdued. One fine day, when their mother gets sick, Ruby asks Rosa to fetch the doctor and bring back some medication. But upon reaching there, she stumbles upon the doctor’s dead body and on her way back, encounters a strange-looking mean she swears she had never seen before.
But this is not the first time such a thing has happened in the small county; young women are vanishing, making everyone scared form their lives and their ruler distraught. When things start to get out of hands, Sir Jonas Martin is called upon to investigate the kidnappings/murders of these women. Jonas Martin meets both the sisters and asks them to come along.
Will he be able to keep both of them safe or will they too, like all the other women, suffer a fate no one wants to talk about? What will Sir Jonas do when he finds out that the man Ruby saw outside the doctor’s house was actually her fiancé?
Romance, passion, blood, mystery and unexpected twists is all what the book holds for its readers. A magnificent portrayal of strong character-building and a small town setting that can be visualized and a story plot that will leave the reader on the edge of their seats, biting their nails in anticipation.
