This is a great series but I fear that this book while clearing up a LOT of things is more of a information dump before what I hope is a much more satisfying book 3 that moves the story along a bit more.

Geri is still a bit of a mystery that we are being fed little pieces of which starts to get frustrating after a bit.

Bottom Line in this short review, lots of info, seems to be a couple of subplots and I can't wait for the next one but hope it is a bit more fulfilling than

Geri is back and uncovering more vampire secrets. This series has really hooked me now. I couldn’t put it down! I need more of this twisted fairytale.

Wasn't for me....

Felt too YA urban fantasy for me, also this has kept popping up in romance and it's NOT a romance even in the slightest....
I feel bad for Geri I do,deeply in love and having the one you love forced to another ....
But honestly it's all really weird because even you can tell she still has some feelings for her ex , I dint care I'd they were all pawns of her horrible crazy mother, it was only a year ago, she should be angry and maybe a touch bitter at the situation..

3.5 Stars
This series has promise but it went a little slow for book two. It was still really good but it felt like nothing was answered and more questions were piled on. I'm hopeful that book three will clear things up and move the story more. The writing is good and the characters are engaging enough that I want to know what happens next. I'm optimistic that book three will fill in the gaps. Cautiously recommended.

I’m already anxious for the next. I love Kendrai’s twist to the paranormal realm.
I was totally cut off guard with the turn of events. And what is going on between Geri and Tobias...

Family drama, supernatural connections, the deeper truths uncovered...

Love it!

Relinquished Hood picks up not too long after the end of Reluctant Hood. We find Geri Kline very surprised to learn that her internship with Igor Karmarov is still on, despite how things ended at the end of the first novel. Geri is joined for the summer by Tobias, a European werewolf who is now indebted to her for saving his life.

Geri’s personal mission is to find out what the vampires in Chicago are up to—why are they so interested in the werewolves? Once she realizes that her power

I was given an advanced copy of this book for an honest review and I can tell you that, as with the first book in this series, I absolutely LOVED IT!! I was quickly sucked back into this original storyline and characters. I love Geri, she is absolutely my kind of heroine, snarky, badass (with a spine of steel) yet not to above it all to admit her wrongs, she is far from infallible. Tobias is a heartthrob through and through, a broken man with an inner strength that makes me mourn with him yet wa ...more

This was an amazing sequel and I honestly cannot wait to see what happens next. this book is full of action and unexpected developments. Geri dives deep inside the world of  the WWL corporation, as the secrets of their genetic research get revealed.
The complex friendship between Geri and Tobias develops and solidifies, as the new painful discoveries come to light and new interesting characters, crucial to the story are reveled. Geri's mother comes to the forefront with her inexplicable act

I really liked Relinquished Hood and will definitely continue with this series. In fact I'm going to get onto Amazon right now and order the next one. I enjoy the central characters and their growing, changing relationships. I missed Geri's roommate Amy, but understand that not every character can be in every book. I hope that Geri can develop more strong female relationships in the next book. But I do appreciate that she can have strong male relationships that are not romantic in nature. I enjo ...more

This is a whole new twist on the Red riding hood fairy tale. Our hood is Geri, and she is a fun, kick butt type of heroine that is so likeable as a character. All kinds of plots going on in the story with lots of action and some mystery. We have wolves of the were persuasion and vampires too. Of course lots of conflict within going on and a mother who is not my favorite character. That being said this is the second book and its even better than the last. This is one of those books that you hate ...more

Still loving the storyline. The Hoods for Werewolves and Slayers for Vampires. At first when I started reading the book I was confused on The Seven Ravens part, but as you got further into the story it all became clear. Geri is still going against her mom. Cody is still having Tobias protect her. She is now working in WWL to try to find out what happened to the Werewolves that disappeared. I don’t want to say too much on the book and ruin everything so I will leave it at that. I can’t wait for t ...more

Even better than the last book!

The legacy of Little Red Riding Hoods descendants continues. This one definitely had me hooked from the first paragraph. So much so that I read it in one sitting. And the chemistry between Geri and Tobias is undeniable, even though both insist on trying to deny it. Can't believe I have to wait 3 months for the next chapter of this story! Old legends, werewolves, vampires, I'm ready, bring on more!

Keeps getting better!

Meeks has done a fantastic job keeping us on our toes with this part of the story. Just when you are sure you know what is going to happen, you are spun about and pointed in another direction.

Love the evolution and interaction of the characters. Another fantastic storyline. Cannot wait to read book three, Geri is an awesome lass to read about.

As with the first one, I'm still torn. Still, 4 stars, and that only thanks to the intruiging world, plus the truly magnificently funny language.
But storywise ... I love Geri and the other characters, truly, yet, especially Geri, though supposedly clever and smart conveniently ignores fairly obvious clues, only to later 'suddenly' have it somehow revealed. That gets on my nerves, as well as her blind hate for her mother, even though it's obvious she is only acting the way she does out of l

LOVED this book. The sequel to Reluctant hood the red hood chronicles.
It was fast paced and had enough action to keep me needing more. I really like the way the friendship between Geri and Tobias is going and this book also has a few new characters introduced with some interesting backstories.
You will love it if your a fan of supernatural/fantasy type books.

Bring on the Ravens

Great continuation of the story - picks up right where book 1 left off. Lots of guessing who could be trusted as well as plenty of twists. Still leaves a lot to figure out as far as Geri's parents are concerned. Plenty of chemistry and possible chemistry between Geri, Caleb, and Tobias.

I give

So I gave book 2 a chance. But I give up its the same thing over and over. It's very slow moving and hardly any action. I had to force myself to finish. I don't know if I'll be able to read book 3 after this.

Still. Fun and fast paced

The series has quirks and plot enough to keep you entertained. The heroine is open to those around her unlike some that show their strength through intractable traits. It’s A fun read

I loved this story. Geri has really grown on me, and the twists and turns of this story are brilliant. The science that's explained mixed in with the supernatural element is really clever. Really worth reading.

Alternative modern red riding hood

2nd book in the series with a wonderfully different take on Red Riding Hood, Werewolves, and other legendary characters. Well worth reading.

What an amazing first book by this writer. Is an intriguing character and is perfectly written for this story. Can’t wait to read the next book.
Espionage, Guilt and Secrets...

Espionage, Guilt and Secrets are the fuel that drive this book. Gerri is learning to operate as a normal human and is donning her espionage hat to skulk around vamp central secrets she can barely begin to fathom and is propelled by guilt and pain to overcome her seeming reluctance to help which she sees as the reason why her now protected Tobias’ mate was killed.

It’s a tangled web, and the ending it yet again, very frustrating, but it does its job and no
