Wordy Wednesday - Ryder by Greta Maloney
This week, I wanted to introduce to my friend Greta Maloney, who has published a new take on Little Red Riding Hood titled Ryder.
Everyone has a secret. You're lying if you don't. Fourteen year old Piper has tried to keep her secret hidden. Everyone who finds out always winds up dead. Only the man in the dark suit knows the truth. A man she only met once. The man who made her what she is today. The man who bit her. But that's all about to change.
Piper Glendale is on the run from the moon as her secret Sister Wolf wars with her. Fighting for control, Piper tries to keep her buried deep inside. But sometimes her sister breaks free.
Escaping from an institution, The Sister Wolf claws her way out. On the run her powerful body runs dry. The sun has finally risen. Piper has regained control.
Awaking in a cemetery, she prowls through the grave stones in search for food and shelter. Overlooking a hill, Piper sees a boy. A boy who is about to change her life. A boy in a faded red hood.
Based on the beloved children's classic Little Red Riding Hood, "Ryder" is a modern retelling with a twist.
Greta's style is different, as is the way she looks at the world. But you will like her kind of different :)
