I wasn't sure if it was going to be good at all. It felt strange having a new character's story added in from the start of the book.

Fortunately, it turned out much better than expected. I took me til halfway through the book though to get the theme. It is very loosely based off Little Red Riding-hood as the first was based loosely off Cinderella. I can't wait to see which story the next book will be based off of next.
