Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
Top 4 Reasons You Should Read Red Now:
-- It's not just another fairy tale retelling. Ms. Hudson takes the central idea from Little Red Riding Hood but makes an amazing story with twist and turns and magic that is all her own. This novel is what retellings should be: unique to the author's vision.
--Style and flow. The prose flows in a way that draws the reader in and never lets go. I loved the quick pace and the overall voice. This was one of those rare novels where the middle was more interesting than the beginning.
--The characters: Red and Alex in particular. I loved Alex. He was quirky and sweet, just what Red needed. Red was a kickass heroine, and I really liked how she evolved through the story.
--The fantasy world: Contrasts of light and darkness permeate the story. Ravenswood Mansion was one creepy place. I really enjoyed the eerie vibe reminiscent of Gothic romances.
