Do not go gentle into the wolf's asylum...

Once every twenty years, pack alpha Luther takes a new wife. On the day of Selection, Red is chosen. Just as her family always planned. Just as she always planned. Until she met Alex Plain.

Alex took Red to worlds she never imagined, where the ordinary is seen as magical, and the upright is abstract. With the help of this new friendship, Red begins to see a future for herself outside of the pack. But, unfortunately, Alex Plain came along too late.

Red is obligated to marry Luther now, and taken to live in the mysterious Ravenswood Mansion, where truth lies and the walls have eyes. What Red learns there about her alpha will ignite some burning questions—ones that, when answered, could undo the entire order of the pack:

What happened to all the children born there? Why hasn’t this mansion left the seventeenth century? And where are all his previous wives?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!


When an author attempts a twisted retelling a classic fairy tale the seem to always run the risk of not meeting the readers expectations, simply for the fact that we all have these original stories burned into our memories. Some people have a tendency to close their minds to retellings, without accepting the new angle that an author is offering it's reader, but I for one embrace them 100%!!

Red to me was phenomenal, I love how the first line of the book scratched any, "Happily Ever After", you thought you'd be getting. It doesn't set you up for your typical fairy tale, it gives you emotion times a million, grit and heartache.

So many different things about this book reeled me in, from the scenery, to the history surrounding the secrective community they call "the Wolf's Asylum", every single piece of this book fell into place perfectly. Even the characters played off with other with ease.

Red I feel will forever hold a special place in my heart, because when her world starts to crumble around her she does whatever is necessary to pull herself out of the rubble. As she continues to try and reestablish the honor within her family a piece of the puzzle falls into her lap....Alex...though it might not be the piece she wanted, or expected, Alex absolutely fits there.

Though I would love to just go on, and on about all the details, I won't. I want all of you to read this book so badly, I will purposely not tell you any juicy details! --->insert evil laugh<---


5/5
