Review: Ladle Rat Rotten Hut by Cameron Jace


The Grimm Diaries Prequels #4
Author: Cameron Jace
Released Date: July 21, 2012
Publisher: Self Published

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.

     I think Ladle Rat Rotten Hut had the best twist, and maybe also the scariest (though it wasn’t very scary), out of all the sequels I've read so far, even if it combines two of them (I thought there were 3). It was also a better job in combining multiple fairy tales than the last one I read. While staring at the title before reading it, I was extremely inquisitive why the author would use a strange title.
     I never figured it out until later in the story, when Red goes on her first journey following her mother's footsteps and meets a wolf boy relaxing (so it seems) and reading a book. She later finds out who she really is, along what her mother and grandmother really are. I'm really surprised with what the grandmother really is, though that seemed to be hinted throughout the story. It didn't give it fully away until the second we actually do find out.
     What I really liked was the creative way with the English language Mr. Jace uses throughout the story. But maybe I should also thank the original creator of it... which I'll leave anonymous for the rest of you to ponder on (unless you know it already).

Rating: 5 out of 5 Owls
