Little Red Riding Hood grows up to be a dangerous hunter of shape-shifters and magic abusers in this latest series entry (after 2013's Steadfast). Having trained all her life to protect the inhabitants of Germany's forests from rampaging werewolves, Rosa of Schwarzwald is called on by another lodge in England to help eradicate a werewolf pack that might be controlled by a rogue Elemental Master.
VERDICT Although she shifts gears between an oddly girlish interest in pretty dresses and hardheaded hunt master, Rosa remains a typical, strong Lackey heroine. The author has an army of fans, and while this series lacks some of the satisfying emotional angst of her Valdemar books, it will be in demand with those who can't get enough Lackey.
