    15 stars I liked Stephan I wanted a awesome brotherister relationship where Stephan helps her figure out what to do about William and is there for her and protective and awesomeBut no Just kill off the brother and all the potential for greatness Thanks a lotSo I like the idea of the wolf being a were wolf or something really similar but I wish that it would have been of a mystery to figure out As it is you can tell by reading the back cover and by page 3 Real subtle I wanted to like Ruth and William as a couple but a few things were against themA What if I devour you? he asked at last She pulled back slightly and touched one of his eyeteeth with her fingertip I hope that you do she breathedWhat? No I can assure you Ruth that that would not be goodThat sounds like a super great start to a healthy life long relationship Also Touched one of his eyeteeth? Who does that?B Ruth is afraid of Williamand is still considering marrying him without actually knowing him? Sure she knows that he's cursed and he seems niceright? But since he met her he can't control his wolfy actions He blacks out after being a wolf He thinks that having Ruth would be worth the death of a hundred people but he's not sure he can make that decision condemning a hundred or people to death all so that he can be loved and love in return I'm all for helping the poor guy but he's got issues A lot of them And until he resolves them don't get too close C He practically killed you as a kid That's gotta be off puttingD She glared at him as he stepped closer We should never see each other again he saidThat is fine with me she said stepping back again until her back hit the wall She stared deep into his eyes and suddenly she saw something a change in them His voice was little than a growl Unfortunately that doesn't work for meThan his hands were on her waist and his lips were on hers She moaned as she wrapped her arms around his neck and gave in to his embrace She was pinned between him and the wall with nowhere to go even if she had wanted to But I don't want to go anywhere I want to stay here with him be a part of him He gently bit her lip tugging on it slightly with his teeth and she closed her eyes It's no use he said pulling away ever so slightly I tried to forget you but I can't not now not ever I need you I don't care what the conseuences Just knowing you loving you makes me crazy If that is my fate I'd rather go mad with you by my side He kissed her cheek and then trailed kisses down her throat We are only going to destroy each other she whispered I should leave now and never returnIt's too late for that he said gazing at her fiercelyWhy?You love me don't you?Yes she whispered God forgive me I doThen I shall never let you go for I love youI could runI would catch you he growled against her lipsI could kill youOnly your absence could do thatYou can't make me stay with youI will marry you and then you will have to he saidWhat if I don't agree to that? something inside her forced her to ask He pulled away from her and his green eyes bored into hers with an intensity that made her uake Then I'll make sure your father forces you to marry me And how will you do that?I don't know I will not lose you though She felt white hot flame explode throughout her being I have no choice but to marry you?None She smiled slowly Then kiss me againPages 121 and 122 in the mass market paperback by Simon PulseAt this point in the story I no longer cared about them as a couple I didn't like nor did I respect William He doesn't love Ruth If he loved her regardless of personal pain misery or effort he would want her to be happy and safe And if that meant losing her in his life he would have done it; had he loved her As for what these two have Attraction? Infatuation?Ruth is just silly This in a real life situation where all is not fairytales and gumdrops is not a safe relationship Get the heck of out his life He needs help He is controlling possessive and dangerous He would force you to marry him What part of that is in any way good? This should have been her reaction to all thatand then ran like hellAlso ending a sentence in a preposition She was pinned between him and the wall with nowhere to go even if she had wanted to is grammatically incorrect And then there was Peter Heard that coming from a mile away It was blowing a horn and wearing tap shoesAnd then there was the anti freaking climatic ending Ruth Oh yeah we still need to break the curse else William nom me to death one night he gets a little too excited but there is only two pages left What to do?William nomming on Ruth's neckGrandmother Idiots You're cured now William Happy wedding present you two I never want to see you again It was MagicThe EndNot recommended The very few things that made this interesting and different were sunk like the Titanic by the truly horrendous romance and characters

    I generally enjoy re tellings of fairy tales so was excited to hear about this young adult version of the Red Riding Hood story I regreat to say I was wrong This is your basic Harleuin romance with a werewolf in it Poor but feisty young woman meets rich handsome man and they fall instantly in lust But wait he has a terrible deep dark secret once a month he turns into a wolf and rips people's throats out gasp But he's so handsome and charming and he bites her lips when he kisses her and growls in her ear that she has no choice but to marry him so what can she do? Oh dear I hope it all works out in the end and they live happily ever after Maybe Grandma who has been banished by the townsfolk to live alone in the woods because they think she's a witch will save the day Ya think??? I wish Grandma could give me back the time short tho it was that I spent reading this


  3. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    I loved other books in the Once upon a time series but this one No just no Red riding hood is my favorite fairytale but it is my least favorite fairy tales to read retellings of Why? Because everyone thinks it is a bright idea to make the wolf love interest Author Hmm I am writing a books based on Red Riding Hood and I need a love interest for Red Hmmm let me see There was this woodsman guy who came in and saved Red and her Grandmother and left without a reward he just wanted to do the right thing There is also this creepy wolf that tricks a little girl into leading him to her grandmothers house and eats said little girl and her grandmother Hmmm ooh I know I'll make this wolf guy like a werwolf that is a danger to every one It will be really romantic Every single Red Riding Hood retelling I see does this and this book is no different I mean Ruth girl grow a brain already William almost killed you TWICE If he really loved he would run off so he couldn't hurt you I do not recommend And a note to authors STOP MAKING THE WOLF LOVE INTREST ALREADY

    2 6 08Debbie Viguie is an established author with several books under her belt and she is the co author of a successful book series called Wicked She has her bachelor of arts degree in creative writing and she says she has been writing most of her life Most of her books fall into the fictionfantasy genre and that is precisely where her book Scarlet Moon can be found Scarlet Moon along with her book Midnight Pearls is part of the 'Once Upon a Time Series' published by Simon Pulse This is a series of classic fairy tales that have had a new twist and a deeper story line put into them Scarlet Moon is a modern retelling of Little Red Ridding Hood that you would necessarily want to tell your little girl The book starts out with a young Ruth the main character of the book walking through the woods with her brother on the way home from their grandmother’s house Disaster hits when the two young children are suddenly come upon by a mysterious black wolf with piercing green eyes Ruth’s leg is mangled by the savage wolf and her brother luckily saves them both but even though Ruth is in extreme pain she can’t get the image of those green eyes out of her mind in fact she didn’t even know that wolves had green eyes The book soon progresses into chapter two and it is now nine years in the future making Ruth around eighteen years old She works in her father’s blacksmith shop which is frowned upon in this time of the Crusades Soon a strange man enters the shop and helps Ruth deal with a troublesome customer This man happens to be William the Earl of Lauton William is know to have a bad and dangerous reputation but Ruth doesn’t think to much about it However she does notice his strange strikingly familiar green eyes The story line of this book takes off on the first page of the book so it doesn’t give you any time to get bored in the sometimes dull background overview of other books The story not only hooks you with the action and mystery from the first page but I also think the it progresses nice It doesn’t move so fast that you don’t have time to get involved or connected to the story; it also doesn’t move so slow and get into so much detail you feel like putting it down and never picking it up again Scarlet Moon is definitely a book for fantasy lovers especially if you like books that involve spells curses and mystery If you are a fast or avid reader this book won’t take you long to finish Its fairly short so if you are looking for something to keep you occupied for a while it probably shouldn‘t be your first choice but if you’re looking for a uick read you might pick it up I would also say that this book is geared toward teen readers so if it’s an in depth story line your looking for its probably not for you either Over all I think Scarlet Moon is a good read with a captivating story line that keeps you turning the pages and keeps you entertained down to the last page Scarlet Moon which was written by Debbie Viguie is a mystical romantic and thrilling retelling of the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood Ruth who is portrayed as the Liggle Red Riding Hood characted in the book is living her life without fear even thought she was attacked and her leg was mangled by a wolf when she was a child This story takes place in a small villiage in the times of the Crusades which her brother and cousin left to fight in leaving her to help her father in his blacksmith shop I love the mystry and courage in thes book and the story always has you guessing what is going to happen next Scarlet Moon is a must read for any fairy tale lover especially if you like the movie The Brothers Grim


  5. Kathy Kathy says:

    This is a retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood a story that I have never really been that found of However I actually loved this book It really brought the whole fairy tale to life and gave the characters so much depth Ruth isn’t your typical girl She is very pretty but knows how to fight She has a love of learning and nature but works as a blacksmith William is a great character and you really feel for him and the trails he has to live through They have great chemistry together You fall in love with Grandma and I couldn’t help picturing walking through the beautiful woods to go for a visit at Grandma’s house The story was full of love passion adventure and mystery There are some parts which are a bit violent so I wouldn’t recommend it to a young audience My only complaint is that the book was too short; I would have loved it if it had been a full length novel and really delved into the characters and the story Since the author was limit to page count some parts did feel a little rushed or tied up too uickly Those were all easy to overlook though the story as a whole was just fantasticOf all the Once Upon a Time books this is by far my favorite Some of the others seemed to be out there but this one was along the lines of a traditional fairy tale and yet was still uniue


  6. Mary Bronson Mary Bronson says:

    I thought this was such a great re telling of Little Red Riding Hood I loved Ruth as a main character I thought she was different and fierce How she loved working along her father in the blacksmith shop and how she would learn about healing from her grandmother I have a little bit of problem with William and Ruth's romance like it was rushed but in the end it worked out


  7. Marija Marija says:

    35Sweet little retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with a romantic twist and couple of additional background and plots On the whole I'm satisfied


  8. Michele Michele says:

    This was a short uick read It great for a uick read when on vacation or an airplane ride


  9. Kelsy Kelsy says:

    HahahahaI'm sorry but this is the second Little Red Riding Hood retelling I've read whose synopsis ends with facing their destiny at Grandmother's house and I think it is the most hilarious thing ever When I think of my grandmother's house I do not envision any showdowns happening Funny stuff Anyway Scarlet Moon is a really neat retelling of a fairy tale that you don't know much about Besides the obvious don't talk to strangers lesson in Little Red we don't know much about the characters and their lives I especially enjoy retellings of Little Red Riding Hood for this reason; there is so much you can do with them and so many different interpretations It is interesting to see how different authors interpret this fairy tale Ruth is a very endearing protagonist She is strong smart and forward thinking And William well he is about as dreamy as one might expect a charming young nobleman with a dark past to be The answer is too dreamy My issue with this retelling and most of the other retellings in Once Upon a Time is that it spends a ton of time on exposition and the result is that the rest of the book feels rushed At less than two hundred pages Scarlet Moon does a good job of fitting everything into a very small page number but it suffers from this problem than the rest of books in the Once Upon a Time series


  10. Mel Mel says:

    Once Upon a Time SeriesOkay I'm all for retelling classics but the story and ending seemed soooooo stretched to me Duke William's family has been werewolves for generations and the secret has been closely guarded But William meets Ruth a female blacksmith during the Crusades and the next day he spills the beans I would like to think that a dark secret that big would take longer than a couple glances and witty exchanges to come to light but maybe that's just me Here's my other pet peeve and this is a spoiler William's family has had this curse for generations and generations and generations and generations you get my point No one has been able to figure out how to break the curse Oh but of course they didn't ask Granny because she would tell you all you have to do is burn the original cursed Duke's portrait and all would be well Really Come on Really? So overall this reads like an old gothic romance novel which is different but with all the story flaws it wasn't for me
