Summary
Gretchen Schwarzwald, or Little Red Riding Hood, is rescued by the Woodsman's Lodge Fire Master after her parents are killed by werewolves. Little Red Riding Hood's real name is Gretchen Schwarzwald, and she is from the Schwarzwald (the Black Forest) in Germany. Ten years ago, she was orphaned by an evil Earth Master who wanted her parents' land and killed them all with the werewolves he created. She was rescued by a Fire Master, a member of the Woodsman's Lodge, and taught how to use her own Fire Powers. Now another werewolf pack is ravaging Exmoor, and she has come to help London's White Lodge eradicate it and find and destroy the Elemental Master behind it

Review
  • Lackey’s long-awaited ninth Elemental Masters fairy tale (after Steadfast ) will satisfy her eager fans. As a budding Earth mage in 19th-century Europe, young Rosa studied deep in the Schwarzwald forest of Germany under the tutelage of her adopted grandmother, until the day the wolf literally came to her door. Some years later, having come fully into her Mastery of Earth, Rosa is called to hunt the same creatures that haunt her past and who set her on her current path—assuming her training for polite society doesn’t kill her first. The action and dialogue flow freely, mingling with beautiful descriptions of European countryside and just a hint of romance. However, despite a well-developed heroine and engaging story, the novel falls short of its full potential, feeling somewhat like a rewritten role-playing adventure. Agent: Russell Galen, Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency. (June) --Staff (Reviewed April 21, 2014) (Publishers Weekly, vol 261, issue 16, p)
  • Little Red Riding Hood grows up to be a dangerous hunter of shape-shifters and magic abusers in this latest series entry (after 2013's Steadfast ). Having trained all her life to protect the inhabitants of Germany's forests from rampaging werewolves, Rosa of Schwarzwald is called on by another lodge in England to help eradicate a werewolf pack that might be controlled by a rogue Elemental Master. VERDICT Although she shifts gears between an oddly girlish interest in pretty dresses and hardheaded hunt master, Rosa remains a typical, strong Lackey heroine. The author has an army of fans, and while this series lacks some of the satisfying emotional angst of her Valdemar books, it will be in demand with those who can't get enough Lackey. --Megan M. McArdle (Reviewed May 15, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 9, p55)
