The Fairy Tale Novels, a series of books by Regina Doman, take somewhat well-known fairy tales and move the setting to a modern-day setting - let's say New York. The cast: a bunch of Catholic teenagers. In this world, a sleeping spell is a coma, a magical passageway becomes a locked-away staircase that leads out of the house, the seven dwarves are replaced by seven quirky Franciscan friars, and so on.

There are currently six books in the series: [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndRoseRed The Shadow of the Bear]], [[Literature/SnowWhiteAndtheSevenDwarfs Black as Night]], [[Literature/SleepingBeauty Waking Rose]], [[Literature/TheTwelveDancingPrincesses The Midnight Dancers]], [[Literature/AliBabaAndTheFortyThieves Alex O'Donnell and the Forty CyberThieves]], and [[{{Literature/Rapunzel}} Rapunzel Let Down]].

!!These books provide examples of:
* AmateurSleuth: Rose and Blanche, but especially Rose.
** "Pipe down, TrixieBelden."
* CoolSword: Alex's various Japanese weapons.
* DamselInDistress: Usually the girls, but the guys have their moments, too.
* DanceBattler: When Kateri finally does the fan dance in Alex O'Donnell and the Forty Cyberthieves.
** [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome "Remain still. Or you, sir, are dead."]]
* DarkerAndEdgier: Black as Night. Blanche is on the run after being framed for drug possession and grand theft...
** As of Rapunzel Let Down, which deals with teen pregnancy, illegal immigration, homelessness, prison, kidnapping, and worse, we have a new winner in this category.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Fish in "Waking Rose" is a male example. Rachel Durham from "The Midnight Dancers" also qualifies.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Rose has a theory that no one is really what they seem. Fish is her Prince Charming, her godmother is a fairy, and so on.
* GeniusBruiser: As it turns out, Bear writes poetry.
* GirlyGirl: Blanche and Rose, in different ways.
* GoshdangItToHeck: This is Christian fiction. Rose's swear words get pretty bizarre, though. ("Holy candlesticks, sister!")
* KatanasAreJustBetter: ALEX. He does end up breaking one in a fight, though.
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: The Durhams have fourteen kids. The Kovachs have plenty, too.
* MeaningfulName: Rose (has red hair, a fiery spirit, and is named for the fairy tale character Rose Red); Blanche (means white, is quiet and gentle, and named after both Snow Whites); Brier, their surname, means Rose. So their names mean Rose Red ('rose' is a shade of red and pink) and Rose White (in some variations of the story, Snow White's name is changed to this).
** Bear points Blanche's name out to her and jokingly calls her Snow White.
** Bear is named for being brawny and protective of his younger brother, Fish, who is named for managing to slip out of bad situations. However, there proper names are Arthur and Benedict (Fish's other nickname is Ben).
** It gets better. The name Arthur means Bear.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Paul from "The Midnight Dancers" is a ninja clown! Who also plays the flute!
* NumberOfTheBeast: The villain's keypad code in "The Shadow of the Bear."
* PrinceCharming: Bear and Fish play this in different books for each of their love interests. Paul is also seen as this trope by a somewhat jealous Fish in "Waking Rose".
* RedOniBlueOni: Rose and Blanche.
* TwiceToldTale: All of the books.
