Website|Buy the Book

The only thing Avery Hood can remember about the night her parents died is that she saw silver—deadly silver, moving inhumanly fast. As much as she wants to remember who killed them, she can't, and there's nothing left to do but try to piece her life back together. Then Avery meets the new boy in school—Ben, mysterious and beautiful, with whom she feels a connection like nothing she's ever experienced. When Ben reveals he's a werewolf, Avery still trusts him—at first. Then she sees that sometimes his eyes flash inhuman silver. And she learns that she's not the only one who can't remember the night her parents died.Part murder mystery, part grief narrative, and part heart-stopping, headlong romance, Low Red Moon is a must-read for teen paranormal fans.

Summary from

Today I have an guest post with author Ivy Devlin. Her novel Low Read Moon will be hitting shelves on September 14. I asked Ivy to share how Little Red Riding inspired her to write Low Red Moon and how she tried to make her wolves unique. Here's what she had to say:

I've always loved the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and I thought "What if...?" and went from there. It just seemed like the perfect story for a paranormal romance--with the possibility for some very interesting twists along the way! (I mean, how can you go wrong with that story? There are so many things about it that are both fairy-tale-ish...and yet not about it.)

I think what makes Ben different from most other werewolves is that he isn't part of a pack--in fact, he has almost no family at all! I didn't think about that being unusual when I wrote the story--it was just who Ben was--but, after seeing reviews commenting on how different my werewolves are, I suppose Ben is!

The thing I think is most interesting about the whole werewolf thing in Low Red Moon is that there is one word that everyone uses when they review the book--but yet that word is never once used in Low Red Moon! I keep waiting for someone to figure out what it is, but so far, no one's mentioned it...

Thanks so much Ivy for stopping by! Be on the lookout for my review of Low Red Moon!
