About J.A. Marlow

It's said I was launched into space from birth and I haven't been back to Earth since.

There might be some truth in that.

As a reader I love science fiction with great plots, interesting characters, exotic locales, all accompanied by a sense of wonder with optimistic endings. As a writer, I love the same.

I almost stopped reading the sample because the voice in the beginning felt a bit heavy handed and to me Kate seemed a bit like a spoiled brat, but I kept reading and the author found her voice.

After the beginning the voice smoothed out and the characters really deepened.

So then I bought the thing because I couldn't stop reading. I needed to know what happened to this family and these characters. The world building itself is fascinating I love the history that goes into this world.

Absolutely enthralling. Ihave read this classic fairy tale many times as a child, and many more to my own child, but this is the first time I have seen it done for adults.
The characterisation is spot on, but we have come to expect that from Marlow. this author has yet to let her fan base down in this department and all others with her unique story telling.

Red Riding Hood has been retold a number of times, but this is one of my favorites.

JA Marlow has a knack for characterisation and that shows again here.

You can see the fairy story that we've known all our lives, but it has been extremely well taken and put in a different setting that explores other aspects and in some places turns it on its head.

I thoroughly enjoyed this and would unhesitatingly recommend it.

I started reading the book last Friday, and although my kids kept interrupting, I finished it last night. It's a fast paced story with elements you find in Little Red riding Hood. Only, this time the Red cloak has a significance it lacks in the fairy tale. I enjoyed every minute of it, especially when the wolf shows up. That was a really nice twist. So far, I have read two of the authors stories, and have never been disappointed.
Highly recommended.

Little red riding hood at its finest, but for adults. While this book took me longer then the others to finish I couldn't pull away from the chapters full of suspense and action. If you liked Little Red riding hood as a child, I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this one as well. Great job as usual. This is the second book of J.A. Marlow's that I have read and I am not going to stop till I read them all.
