Red b. Jordan Summers

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really wanted to like this book. I thought that somehow the techno-western backdrop of the story would stand out more, and that the heroine and her mate might be a little less cliche. Don't get me wrong, it was a good read but uneven and rushed, especially the ending. I swear the last ten pages are a blur. Initially the underling mystery that drove the first 2/3 of the book was done well, and then it just collapsed. The sex scenes were rushed and squashed into one incident, the revelation of the villian was a lightening strike and the resolution was even more unstable. Also, I thought that the references to the 'Little Red Riding Hood' story were weak and unnecessary. The book does allude to having a sequel though, and if there is, I would probably check it out because Ms. Summers did build an intriguing futuristic world with really interesting characters. Although for a werewolf-fanatic, it's not good when I am more interested in the vampiric characters, than the weres...Still it is a good read.
