Title: For the Wolf
Series: Wilderwood #1
Author: Hannah F Whitten
As the only Second Daughter born in centuries, Red has one purpose-to be sacrificed to the Wolf in the Wood in the hope he’ll return the world’s captured gods.
Red is almost relieved to go. Plagued by a dangerous power she can’t control, at least she knows that in the Wilderwood, she can’t hurt those she loves. Again.
But the legends lie. The Wolf is a man, not a monster. Her magic is a calling, not a curse. And if she doesn’t learn how to use it, the monsters the gods have become will swallow the Wilderwood-and her world-whole.
I loved the premise of this book and it was set with these words:
The First Daughter is for the throne.
The Second Daughter is for the Wolf.
And the Wolves are for the Wilderwood.
Thanks to Orbit Books UK for providing me with an advanced copy.
As the blurb says, 2nd Daughter, Red has to be given to the Wilderwood and the Wolf….but all is not as it seems and Neve isn’t willing to lose her sister for good.
Redarys, Red I loved her! She was so strong, determined to accept her fate but was willing to control her own destiny rather than sit by and let it all play out. The fact she loved to read was a bonus!
I loved how Neve fought for her sister, that family bond shining through and loved her point of view chapters.
Eammon has been through so much and I just found him incredibly sweet!
I loved this slow burn romance that was a tale that mixed Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast and maybe a bit of Sleeping Beauty. The writing was beautiful and descriptive and I just inhaled this book!
I need book 2!
