When I first saw this anthology I was intrigued, I love these adult retellings of fairy tales so I was looking forward to that but for all of them to be of Red Riding Hood I wasn’t so sure but I have to say they were all great reads! I can’t believe they are all based on the same story but every single on is different! When I looked down the list of authors who feature in the anthology I was excited to see one of my favourites, Autumn Sand, along with some I have read books by and some who were new to me!
Ruby by Autumn Sand
In this author’s true style I was hooked into the story straight away – it was romantic, sensual – everything I would expect from her! I really liked Ruby, her character came alive as the author did an amazing job with her characters visualisation – I felt like I was right there at times in the story. I was in awe of Ruby at times, she had so much going in her life both health wise and in relationship but she had a strength that I admired. This was probably my favourite story out of the anthology.
Cloaked by Lia Fairchild
I love Ms Fairchild’s work so I was excited to see how she would retell Red Riding Hood. I loved the romance/thriller genre for this story and it was a really exciting read! The characters were well thought out and I really enjoyed the story. It was fast paced and thrilling. There were some good twists and turns with Vanessa (Eva) and Luke! This was definitely a favourite of mine in the anthology.
