A remote summer camp becomes a lurid crime scene when the bodies of two teenagers are found in a bloody, real-life rendering of a classic Grimm’s fairy tale. Trapped in the wilderness, the remaining counselors must follow a trail of dark children’s fables in order to outwit a psychopath and save the dwindling survivors before falling prey to their own gruesome endings.
Drawing on the grisly, uncensored details of history’s most famous fairy tales, Grimm Woods is a heart-pounding thriller about a deranged killer who uses traditional children’s stories as tropes in elaborate murders. Set against the backdrop of modern-day Michigan, it’s a journey through the mind of a dangerous zealot and a shocking glimpse into the bedtime stories you thought you knew.

Wow. A really well written horror story. I was impressed with the writing in general. The fast paced horror story had me at the first page. I was glued to the story.
The characters were very well written. They each all had some quarkyness in them even for a short time. They were very believable characters.
Some of the Fairytales in this story are very twisted into a scary form. Which I never could imagine until now. They were so well put together. The ending wasn’t what I expected and it was a surprise for me. But that is a good thing.
If you are looking for a good horror story this book would be for you.
