This was a great quick apocalyptic read, although I feel like it could have had more potential in the story. This is the reason for the 4 out of 5 stars. I’m a fan of Grimm Fairytales and this was a good little spin to the story. The cover is great as well!
This is not the story of Red that you know. It is not safe for anyone to be alone in the woods, there are predators of every species lurking in the shadows. But the woman in the red jacket has no choice. At least not since the the Crisis came, decimated the population, and sent those who survived fleeing into quarantine camps that serve as breeding grounds for death, destruction, and disease.
This book was really good, the author did a good job leading up to the point of finding out what was actually happening to people. The only thing is, we found out almost at the end. I felt as if there should be a second book or something to take us a little more in the direction of that. It was her journey ‘through the woods’ and then a chapter of what she is running from.
Give it a shot and let me know your thoughts! This author has potential!
