Red and the Wolf is E.A. Walker's debut writing novella, and I think the author did a fine job of it. The story is carefully constructed and deeply portrayed in most places and with few exceptions, the story line is fairly straightforward. It hinges on a well-known legend--or a spin-off of one, where the characters should feel familiar. This story uses ethnic names, which is different from other stories I've read.
The story has some adult thematic elements, though, so it is not what I would consider to be a children's story; rather for late teens and above simply due to the relationship material.
I rate the story as four stars and received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
