My coworker (again, the one with the best taste) recommended this book to me.
Let me take this moment to say that I didn't really enjoy a Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. He was always going on about how their lives were so terrible, but I just thought they're not dead, they're still together, much worse things could be happening to them... It just never felt like he really delivered on the promise that the Baudelaires' lives were so horrible.
I had no such problems with A Tale Dark and Grimm. It does exactly what it says on the tin. One of the best fractured fairy tales I've read.
