I saw this trailer a couple of months ago and thought – oooooh that looks kinda good. And while browsing the YA section in my local library the other day to check out my pre-snowmageddonapocolypse books, I ran across this gem:
The body of a young girl is discovered in a field of wheat. Her flesh mutilated by telltale claw marks. The Wolf has broken the peace.
When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by the legendary creature, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love Peter be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?
As the men in the village hunt for the beast, Valerie turns to her grandmother for help. She gives Valerie a handmade red riding cloak, and guides her through the web of lies and deception that has held her town together for so long. Will Valerie discover the werewolf’s identity before the town is ripped apart?
This is a dangerous new vision of a classic fairy tale, the happy ending could be hard to find.
But the problem is, I forgot the kids would all be home during the snow storm. So did I get any reading in? No, just 25 pages worth, which does not qualify for a finished book review. So far, I’m not going to say how I feel about it yet….but would love for any of your readers to read along! I will get this sucker done by the end of the weekend. I’d love to hear what you think as your read along! Shoot me an email! And I promise to write a review when I’m done that DOESN’T SUCK!!!
