    Something Red was a pleasant surprise...it was both a coming of age novel and a horror/mystery of sorts...
    I usually shy away from coming of age plots, because they all have seemed the same to me... but this one was very refreshing...the protagonist was not a village lad with special powers and a hidden destiny, but an orphan raised by a monastery, and then adopted by an exiled Irish queen and her small troupe of "performers". They run into "something red" in their travels, and the mystery builds and builds until it reaches a short, but savage climax. The prose was rich and descriptive, but not overly so...it was a tasty novel!
