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 counsellors 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.
I loved the premise with the grimm fairytales and I was looking forward to reading this book. It did not dissapoint. This is a horror with a very good whodonit in there.

I really enjoyed th eerie atmosphere throughout the book. The story sucked me in from the beginning. It has an excelent mystery that I really enjoyed to unravel. The entire time you were waiting to see what would happen next.
I kind of miss reading books like this, with that eerie atmosphere, knowing that something will happen just not knowing when. I mean I do not like horror movies but love horror books. I am really happy that D. Melhoff reminded me of this.
My rating: 4/5
