Red by Kate Serine


Summary

"My name is Tess Little. But everyone calls me Red."

Once upon a time, a spell went awry, stranding Make Believe characters in the ordinary world. Since then, Tess "Red" Little--a/k/a Little Red Riding Hood--has worked as an Enforcer for the Chicago branch of the Fairytale Management Authority. But, consider yourself warned--she's not just some waif with a basket of goodies. All grown up and with nothing to lose, a gun and combat boots is more her style. And Red's new assignment threatens to be short on happily ever afters…

Someone is murdering transplanted Tales in gruesome fashion. The list of fictional characters capable of such grisly acts is short and includes more than one of Red's old flames. And if that wasn't bad enough, there's another complication, in the form of sexy, enigmatic Nate Grimm, the FMA's lead detective and part-time Reaper. Used to following her own rules and living life on the edge, Red has managed to avoid taking on a partner until now. But Nate's dark side makes him perfect for a case like this. That is, if she can trust him. Because if there's one thing Red knows for sure, it's that believing in the wrong person can have big, bad consequences…

My Rating

5/5

My review

I love love love fairy tales! This was by far the best twist on fairy tale, nursery rhyme and literature characters that I've read. A spell gone wrong has thrust all these familiar characters into the Here and Now. Little Red Riding Hood is an enforcer for the Fairytale Management Authority, Snow White runs a brothel and Little Miss Muffet is a coroner! It only gets better from there =] I had to use Google a few times to refresh my old brain on some of the characters, but this was one of the funnest book I've read this year. There's something for every reader, a little death, some adventure and a good dose of love story with a mostly happily ever after ending. It's going to be torture waiting for the next book in the Transplanted Tales series to come out!
