One of the challenges of the fantasy genre is creating the fantasy world in which the story is set. Rather than the usual Gothic pile of the horror genre, Melhoff has created a holiday camp interwoven with fairy stories as his horror world. It works fantastically well.
The writing is very good, disappearing from the page and building a dynamic three-dimensional image in my mind, film-like in its intensity. The structure is excellent. It's a long book, yet there are no boring passages. At no point was I tempted to put it down.
A load of little kids arrive at the holiday camp, to be greeted by four adults and a bunch of teenagers who are there to guide them. The teenagers have a wild first night, but then they start to be murdered. Even the adults start to be murdered. What's going on? Who is the madman? Why were they all invited?
"Every fairy tale has a dark side..."
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 to outwit a psychopath and save the dwindling survivors before falling prey to their own gruesome endings.
Camp Crownheart, is a fairy tale themed summer camp for troubled children. Counselors with a mixture of experience have arrived a day before the camp opens, to get to know each other and to understand how the camp works and it's rules. The introductions have this old school vibe, the counselors are all about 19 years old, there is the obvious mix of male, female, race and class. Their focus is more on the first night party with the promise of sex and drugs and not learning how to keep the next busload of kids safe. The men are obviously mostly looking for a good time, and it seems a lot of the girls are thinking the same. Crownheart, in my mind's eye is looking and feeling like Friday The 13's Camp Crystal, its in woodland, by a lake, you have a bunch of sexually active, drug taking, beer swilling teenagers, you know murder is obviously on the agenda. I'm a huge fan of the 80's slasher genre, so the stereo-typical characters in a familiar horror setting didn't bother me at all.Read more ›
I surprised myself when reading this book. I cannot believed I actually enjoyed reading this book. As much as I loved reading fairy tales story and Cinderella is my all time favorite, Grimm Woods is a twist from regular fairy tales stories. This book is disgustingly but scary good. It is actually hard to put it down. I start reading it at night and finished the following day.
I never been to summer camp or things closed to that. This story is full of adventures. It is a typical teenagers that deals with situations like drugs and sex which is normal when you explore new things in life. I am so glad I did not experienced those kind of situations when I was at their age. I did not see it coming. I was blown away. This book will teach you how to survive and be responsible.
Scott and Brynn are my favorite characters. I loved the setting and I know that my family will enjoy that kind of environment. This book is a must read if you love horror. I am not a fan of horror but I did surprised myself enjoying this story.
I received this book free of charge from the author or publisher.
