Was originally posted on Paranormal Sisters love stories that involve wolves and ones that are disturbing and monstrous are exactly the ones I love to read about I was absolutely excited to read Blood Red Riding Hood I was instantly hooked finding we got to be behind the eyes of the huntsman The huntsman is escorting I believe Red and her Grandmother through the woods until a pack of decaying wolves surround them For them to get away, Grandma the badass she is, decides to take out the huntsman s knee and leaves him to the wolves When I read this, my eyes bugged out and I just had to see what was going to happen next So much happens next, I feel like this one was the most action packed one I ve read yet This is definitely a path drenched with blood for Red I just couldn t get enough of it And as she s running for her grandmothers home we get a glimpse of characters from the previous stories, love Overall, Blood Red Riding Hood was AWESOME The details were amazing, the pace was perfect, and honestly, I didn t want it to end And the ending was brilliant, Red finally got her wish I thought that was a unique twist Kevin Richey brought to the table with this retailing I just can t get enough of this series This book is part of a series retelling popular fairy tales with a zombie flavour in the mould of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.As you would expect from the title, this is a new take on the story of Red Riding Hood The cast of characters is pretty much the same You have Red Riding Hood Grandma Red s Mother and Father The Woodcutter Some wolvesI think I m correct in saying that the term zombie isn t actually used in the story There are various characters animated despite being in various states of decomposition, but they aren t identified directly either in the narration or by any of the characters as zombies For some reason I find this fact to be quite pleasing The idea of a zombie apocalypse is, after all a very modern one, and I think it would have jarred with the fairy tale setting.The story isn t a direct translation of Red Riding Hood, and so, is different enough to make it an interesting read The gore is often quite lightly skipped over so although it is unpleasant, and would make a shocking short film, it doesn t bog you down in the reading This is an interesting balance well maintained.I have only read one other of these stories Zombie Cinderella Both were enjoyable and I guess I will read in the future In fact I already have Hansel and Gretel are Dead waiting on my kindle. Well that was short but seriously twisted From the start of the book the huntsman is a jerk and SUPER CREEPY with his sexist bullshit No wonder Grandmother doesn t want him anywhere near Red An interesting retelling on the tale that probably translates well as the original story wasn t that long to begin with Characters from the previous books make a noted appearance for those who read the rest of the series, but have no real bearing on the current tale, so you don t need to have read any of the previous books to get what is going on I should add a warning here as there are some pretty horrific things described in this story Sort of on par with stuff that happens in the Hannibal t.v series view spoiler Like a certain someones face being peeled off hide spoiler I ve been reading horror stories for a long time and it is really difficult to impress me or create any type of visceral reaction, but Blood Red Riding Hood did Damn There is one image in the book I won t be getting out of my head for a while This story clocks in at 12.5K so it is a quick read, but a powerful one The writing is excellent and Richey s storytelling created suspense and an overall feeling of horror The story follows some of the Little Red Riding Hood cannon, but he has recreated a whole new tale with unexpected twists This isn t just another zombie story.Blood Red Riding Hood is clever and gruesome and I can t wait to try some of the other tales in this series 4.5 don t screw with grandma Sheephttp www.ismellsheep.com 2013 09 bo my thoughts These books keep getting better and better This one was far descriptive then the previous ones I had read It kept my attention through to the end and fit in well with the zombie fairytale theme This one is based on the Little Red Riding Hood tale Some of the things that take place in this book had turned my stomach, but that s what makes it so incredibly well written I have come to love these twisted fairytale stories and they are well worth the read I know this is a set that I will gladly return to and read again in the future reason for reading I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review. Oh, man This one hit me right in the feels I honestly think I sobbed good and hard about the beginning of this story With the wolves and the grandmother saving Red but not the huntsman honestly, that was so unbelievably sad I think this one might be my favorite so far It was so amazing This series has some of THE BEST zombie stories I ve ever read And I am loving comparing them to the original fairy tales.I cannot wait to continue I just know I m going to be SUPER SAD when I reach the end and don t have any to read in this amazing series. This is definitely the bloodiest story so far, and with elements of the original, though loosely than others I did like the ending though.As someone who s not really into zombies, I wasn t sure I would enjoy these stories, but as a free boxset it was on offer when I bought it , I thought it was worth a look as I do love fairytales, and I wasn t disappointed They are both very different from, and yet contain very clear nods to the originals All have zombie plague themes running through them, and you need to read through them in the boxset order as there are references to the earlier stories in the later ones These are definitely not for children, as they are very violent and often disturbing stories, but if you like fairytale retellings and or zombies, this is definitely a set of short stories for you These books just keep getting better and better I really think that this has to be my favorite out of the series so far It was fantastically bloody and at times I found my heart betting faster as I ran through the woods with Red You really feel like your in this book with her and you ll be horrified at what you find in the woods I can t wait for the 13th to come around so I can get my next fix, these are my favorite books
