Red – Spotlight & Review


Red by Kait Nolan

Publish Date: August 2011

Publisher: Kait Nolan

File Size: 685 KB/

Word Count: 86, 000

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal

Book Description:

“Elodie Rose has a secret.  Any day, she’ll become a wolf and succumb to the violence that’s cursed her family for centuries.  For seventeen years she’s hidden who and what she is.  But now someone knows the truth and is determined to exterminate her family line.  Living on borrowed time in the midst of this dangerous game of hide and seek, the last thing Elodie needs to do is fall in love.  But Sawyer is determined to protect her, and the brooding, angry boy is more than what he seems. Can they outsmart a madman?  And if they survive, will they find a way to beat the curse for good?”

My Thoughts:

I fell into Elodie and Sawyer’s story right off the bat and didn’t emerge until I’d finished reading it. The book begins with Elodie worrying about the family curse beginning to come true and as we learn about her fears, the curse and previous outcomes, we also discover her strengths, weaknesses, and beliefs. I found the characters to be totally believable and they were written as if they could really be alive out there somewhere in the world with this crazy situation unfolding. I loved Kait Nolan’s fresh new take of the Red Riding Hood history that was told within this modern-day tale.

A perfect blend of the supernatural mixed in with a modern teen love story. Everything about this book just “worked” for me, including the great cover! Wonderfully “alive” characters, great plot and pacing, the right mix of mystery, suspense, danger, romance and thrills. Descriptions of the location created a good atmosphere to match the story and situation. I am truly impressed with this newer author and will be definitely looking forward to reading many more engrossing tales written by her in the future! I highly recommend this book to all fans of Young Adult Paranormal Romance.
