The Grimm Curse (Once Upon A Time Is Now) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Fifteen year-old Jake Grimm is the last living descendent of the Brothers Grimm, who wrote the famous fairy tales in the 1800’s. But Jake grew up with foster parents in Los Angeles, never knowing his true destiny until he ran away from his unhappy foster home, to the place of his birth—Woodland—a small town nestled deep in a Northwestern forest. In Woodland, Jake discovers that the famous fairy tales are all real, and they are happening today. And Jake, as the last living Grimm, is the only one who can stop the witches, big bad wolves, and evil stepmothers who are all alive and well, and about to wreak havoc in the small town of Woodland, following the death of Jake’s great-uncle Eustace. But these fairy tale creatures are not like those in the old stories. Woodland is a modern place, and the creatures Jake battles seem like completely normal, modern people—to everyone but Jake. Only Jake can see them for what they really are, and, together with his friend and apprentice, Madeleine, he must fight to prevent the evil that is all around the unsuspecting teens at Woodland High. With THE GRIMM CURSE, author Stephen Carpenter has done for the Grimm Fairy tales what the TWILIGHT series has done for vampires—brought them into the real world of today, with real teens who find themselves in the middle of a centuries-old struggle between good and evil. Because once upon a time is now.

“People always talk about how hard it can be to remember things - where they left their keys, or the name of an acquaintance - but no one ever talks about how much effort we put into forgetting. I am exhausted from the effort to forget... There are things that have to be forgotten if you want to go on living.”
Stephen Carpenter, Killer

“because although she is very pretty, she is also very dead, and dead trumps pretty much everything.”
Stephen Carpenter, Killer In The Hills

“How messed up is it when you feel like you belong in a place that fills you with a sense of dread?”
Stephen Carpenter, Once Upon a Time is Now

William Marantz Okay, Steve, I've downloaded Killer. I'm not a Robert Parker fan but hey, what are friends for? When I'm in Palm Springs next month - and revive my Netflix membership - I'll check out your movies.
