Publisher's Summary

The body of a young girl is discovered in a field of wheat, her flesh mutilated by telltale claw marks. The Wolf has broken the peace.
When Valerie learns that her sister has been killed by the legendary creature, she finds herself at the center of a dark mystery, one that has plagued her village for generations. It is revealed that the werewolf lives among them, and everyone in the village immediately becomes a suspect. Could her secret love, Peter, be behind the attacks on her town? Is it her betrothed, Henry? Or someone even closer to her?
As the men in the village hunt for the beast, Valerie turns to her grandmother for help. She gives Valerie a handmade red riding cloak, and guides her through the web of lies and deception that has held her town together for so long. Will Valerie discover the werewolf's identity before the town is ripped apart?
This is a dangerous new vision of a classic fairy tale, and the happy ending could be hard to find.

4/22/11 - still not the whole story

The story: The narration was good, but the story is only so-so. I was surprised to hear musical cues in the beginning, but after getting over the corniness of it all, it was OK. Knowing this is a “teen” novel, I was surprised how simplistic the language was and how broken down, incomplete, or lacking the descriptions were. Although this book was to expand on the movie, it felt as if it fell short. It was as if I was giving you a very detailed description of the movie I just saw and acted out the parts I recalled or really liked. All-in-all, what was listened to was enjoyed, but I would only listen to this story once.

All that said, I’m VERY disappointed in Audible. I read the two reviews that stated this was not a complete story and that the reader would have to wait until after March 20th to go online and get the ending of the story. I could not find anything from Audible in the description of this story to distinguish if this was the COMPLETE story, or if this was still the partial story missing the ending. I purchased this story on 4/22/11, thinking, “it’s been a month and this movie is no long playing on the main screen in Dayton, OH – I should be safe.” I was wrong. This was not the completed version of the story. I was halfway back from traveling when I reached the end of Chapter 29. Needless to say, I’m a little more than miffed.
