Dec 24, 2013: Red Riding Hood is the first book in the "Tales of the Big Bad Wolf" series which continues with Queen of Swans. The series is a unique retelling of well known fairy tales. The world is consistent, well thought out, and interesting. For that alone, it deserves to be given a look.
However, as other reviews have pointed out, the pace can be frustratingly slow, and it occasionally feels as though mysteries are blatantly danced around in order to keep them from being revealed until later.
Despite this, everything pays off by the end of the story, and its strengths make up for its weaknesses. If you enjoy fantasy and fairy tale retellings, I highly recommend giving this story a look.
