"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
