Review: I didn't fall in love with this book. I really wanted to, since I love the classic Red Riding Hood and also thought the world building in this current version was just wonderful. What gave me mixed feelings was the characters, they all were flat with no real character development in my opinion. I also didn't care for the love triangle or the instant love that happened between Valerie and Peter.
What kept me reading was the suspense. I had no idea who the wolf was until the very end. Not to mention the world created in the retelling was extremely dark which is how I've always pictured Red Riding Hood. I did end up knocking off a star due to the fact that I had to go online to read the final "bonus" chapter.
