Synopsis: "An eccentric tale of tragic loss and renewed hope.
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 last century behind? And where are all his previous wives?"
The beginning of the book was really good, but then after I was in it for a while that feeling started to fade away. At times it seemed like the chapters started out at weird places which resulted in my confusion. I felt the chapters could of have a better transition that it did. As the story went on personally for me the romantic side of the story seemed take over more than the other parts of the story that I wanted to see more of such as the political and magic system of the world. I also was hoping that questions the questions that Red was discovering would have given more a thrilling expectation because to me the story was a little too predictable.
Going into this story I was really excited for a werewolf story because I been really wanting to read one and it did deliver on that. I also loved how it was a Red Riding Hood. I thought all the characters were really great, but sometimes it did seem like they were distant from the plot of the story. I thought the plot of the story was okay, but it could have been better. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to read a retelling and quick read. I give this book 3.5 stars. What are some of your favorite retellings about Red Riding Hood? Remember keep looking for your Once Upon A Time.
