Charlotte Holloway has the power to call spirits and raise the dead. Five years ago, her father threw her out on the streets when he learned of her ability. Forced to make her own way in the slums of Victorian London, Charlotte camouflaged herself as a boy, calling herself Charlie and living with various street gangs.
Now eighteen, Charlie is caught stealing and thrown into jail, where she is forced to once again use the power she so hates in order to protect herself and get away. News of her raising a man from the dead travels fast and soon Charlie is being tracked down by two men: one a mad scientist who wants to put her necromancy abilities to good use and the other is the very cold, yet very handsome, Lincoln Fitzroy, leader of a secret organization who wants to stop the madman and prevent others from using Charlie’s powers for their own nefarious means.

All of the short stories in Grim are retellings of classic fairy tales – and not the sanitized, Disney versions, oh no, these stories stay true to the essence of the original tales, which are much darker, grittier, and, in some cases, bloodier. There’s a good selection here with some modern retellings, some set in the fairy tale settings of olde (in a kingdom far far away during an indeterminable time), and yet others set in a technologically advanced future with a definite Sci-Fi feeling.
