Young Llama Thoughts
Ok… so I got this book at the library, and it said it was youth appropriate… it’s not. I enjoyed the plot line (2 young girls fighting wolves, and protecting people), but then it turned on me.
The girls in the book violently kill the wolves. And the wolf things kill lots of girls in very descriptive ways. There is some cursing, and some tiny mention of birds n bees stuff here and there. Over all, I wish I didn’t read the book. Not a young-teen-kind-of-book… more of a sort-of-adult book.
If you are looking for a nicer, updated version of “Little Red Ridding Hood”, this is not the book for you.
- Interesting plot line…
- Birds n Bees references
Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris–the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She’s determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.
Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls’ bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett’s only friend–but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they’ve worked for?
