    Great Series Complete storyline ends in book 5. But each individual book has a full adventure, with no horrible dangling cliffhanger. But it does take all 5 books to complete their revenge and escape the evil of the bad guy. I really like how the bad guy is portrayed, quite skillfully, to be very bad but also so you feel at times a sympathy for him. I also like how in the beginning the heroine is almost estranged from her mother, but over the 5 books we learn why the Red Matron was so harsh with Great Series Complete storyline ends in book 5.

And we learn to admire the Red Matron's strength and character, while acknowledging her oft times cruelty. The characters in this series were very well developed.

    The first three books of this series were awesome. The fourth started the decline with lack of sexual tension, forced pairings, and lack of editing. This fifth book is not worth reading. It's not edited, the characters' personalities change, and there are plot rifts. I really wish I'd dropped the series at Book Three and left the cliffhanger indefinitely. It would have been better than continuing. The first three books of this series were awesome. The fourth started the decline with lack of sexual tension, forced pairings, and lack of editing.

    Such a clever story of werewolves, Hoods, Vampires and vampire hunters. A mythology that is clever and a story that builds to a satisfying conclusion. I love the way what you have heard and read before is either accepted as lore or torn apart as cliche whilst creating an amazing world of supernatural species with quirky abilities. Definitely worth a read!

    Excellent I thoroughly enjoyed this compendium and especially liked being able to read all of the books from beginning to the end. The Chronicles have an interesting plot with exciting, multidimensional characters. Highly recommend it.

    Too much repetition. Not for me. Perhaps it will be better for readers that love only Vampire/Werewolf Urban Fantasy books. It's a lot of wolves and vampires for the money. Too much repetition.

    This series unexpectedly drew me in from start to finish. Gerwalta Kline (I'm probably spelling that one wrong, but I listened to the audiobook), is a descendant of Red-Riding Hood, not the little girl who went to visit her grandmother in the woods like our fairy tales suggest, but a young woman who was a part of a supernatural matriarchal society of werewolf watchers. The Hoods, the name to which they are referred, were created as a means to balance the world of wolves. A balance free to either This series unexpectedly drew me in from start to finish. Gerwalta Kline (I'm probably spelling that one wrong, but I listened to the audiobook), is a descendant of Red-Riding Hood, not the little girl who went to visit her grandmother in the woods like our fairy tales suggest, but a young woman who was a part of a supernatural matriarchal society of werewolf watchers. The Hoods, the name to which they are referred, were created as a means to balance the world of wolves. A balance free to either defend or defeat the wolves whenever required. The most important rule the Hoods have in their society is to never mix with their charges. Gerri runs away after her mother contrives to have Gerri's boyfriend, Cody, mate another wolf instead of continue his relationship with Gerri. In response, she flees, heartbroken and alone, to Chicago for college among humans. It's there, in the aftermath, that the story and the most pivotal moment in Gerri's life begins. The mythology Kendrai Meeks create in Red Chronicles is absolutely compelling. There really isn't a person alive who has not heard the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. For Meeks to give significance to the most memorable element of that centuries old story is ingenious. She makes the hood the watchers uniform, and uses color as a means of signifying the houses from which each Hood line originates. I have not read such a smart and engaging fairy tale retelling ever, maybe, and I read a lot of them. It is one thing to tell a story from the perspective of the villain or move the set of a story to a more modern environment, but it is a new thing all together to take a story that is trite and cliché and make it feel new, to make the audience feel like they have been missing out all along. As for drawbacks, it took intense listening sessions to finish this series. I think it could have benefitted from being tightened into one big book. The overall action seems too drawn out at times, and some of the middle battles could have easily been merged into one. Still, it's worth the read.
