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.

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.

This isn’t your average fairytales. It is dark, violent, bloody, and definitely not full of happy endings. It is definitely grim. There are very few happy, feel-good moments in this story. This story was one of teaching lessons in the form of revenge. Punishment for not being on the best behavior. It is a dark horror story. Definitely not for the faint of heart. You will not find any happy fairytale endings here.
It held my attention very well. There was always plenty going on. It was fast-paced and didn’t slow down or let up on the gore or horror. I felt like I was watching a teen horror flick movie. There were moments in the story where I didn’t see things coming. It played with my mind a little bit. It was a quick read and one that fully held my attention. This story definitely wasn’t lacking any dull or boring moments. It had plenty of interesting situations going on.
If you enjoy reading something dark and full of horror than you will definitely enjoy reading this book.
Warning: This book has a lot of profanity, sexual content, and drug use. At times it may be a bit crude.
