Ladle Rat Rotten Hut by Cameron Jace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Little Red Riding Hood's untold and true story. Why she was wearing a Red hood. Who her Grandma really was. What the wolf actually wanted. Where she fits in the Dreamworld. And what Ladle Rat Rotten Hut means.
It puzzled me to actually admit this, but I think I'm kind of addicted to Cameron Jace's writing. Beyond all those spelling and grammar errors, awkward metaphores (I'm not any better myself to be honest), I get him as an author. I always read his books in a single sitting, and this didn't happen even for other novellas.
Ladle Rat Rotten Hut (it's a very random title, until you pronounce it ;)) is miles better than Beauty Never Dies, I think. No more annoying characters, praise the Lawd. Plot-wise, not everything makes sense, even when you consider that this is a fairy tales retelling. ***Spoiler ahead*** One thing that bothers me is, how was this wolf-boy get caught by Ladle's witch grandmother? Granted she was a witch, but he isn't an ordinary boy himself. ***Spoiler finished***[One thing that bothers me is, how was this wolf-boy get caught by Ladle's witch grandmother?

Oh, I almost forgot to address the cover. Overall, I like it. If only, the model's hairs don't look too photoshopped.
