Tacitus Publishing's books:
- It's a Grimm Life -
Fairy tales continue to influence popular culture. Sometimes they fill us with a sense of wonder and joy, while other times with dread and fear. Thanks to the Grimm brothers, we are gifted with a glimpse of a distant past, when life was a greater struggle, and folktales were used to warn against our darker natures.
These fables take a modern turn in It's a Grimm Life. You will uncover the dark secrets of a family's past, see how far someone will go to have a child, and about dark deals that could cost you your soul. You will once again travel down that overgrown trail, a sliver of the moon to light the way, knowing that at any turn you could be pulled into the shadows forever.
