Ladle Rat Rotten Hut (The Grimm Diaries Prequels, #4)


Quickie Review: 
3 out of 5

Once again Jace manages to spin another twist on the fairytale genre (and again, one that didn’t come out of Once Upon a Time!). We follow Little Red Riding Hood this time. There was mystery about why Red couldn’t say her real name, there were mysteries about why she was so terrified of wolves (even though she hadn’t visited her grandmother yet). The characters were offbeat making it suspenseful and reminding you that something just wasn’t right. I loved the ‘language’ that was in this story, and what the mystery turned out to be was very interesting. But I felt the mystery perhaps dragged a little. While I did enjoy the mystery, it felt like the mystery wasn’t confusing enough to keep me non-agitated for the entire story. By about half way through I was like ‘come on with the reveal’. But that’s most likely personal preference or my slow reading speed >.<
