Publisher Description

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND TIKTOK SENSATION!

The first daughter is for the Throne.

The second daughter is for the Wolf.

An instant NYT bestseller and word-of-mouth sensation, this dark, romantic debut fantasy weaves the unforgettable tale of a young woman who must be sacrificed to the legendary Wolf of the Wood to save her kingdom. But not all legends are true, and the Wolf isn't the only danger lurking in the Wilderwood.

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.

"If you ever wished Beauty and the Beast had more eldritch forest monsters and political machinations, this is the romance for you."―Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January

"A brilliant dark fantasy debut!" —Jodi Picoult, NYT bestselling author

I would give it a high 4 stars

When I first started reading this book I thought that the female lead was going to be one of those Mary sue “I won’t listen to anyone or anything around me” kind of characters but she was actually a lot deeper than that. The male lead was also portrayed as really sweet and not like typical borderline abusive romance novel male leads. The two lead characters showed communication and when one got angry instead of pissing off for five chapters and being angry at each other they just tried to explain their situation.

The romance in this book was really nice and the over arching story was also intriguing, although for me personally it lagged at a couple parts, that’s why I’m giving it 4 stars. The main and main supporting characters all seemed to go through some kind of character development that wasn’t just getting over their sexual tension, which was refreshing for a romance novel.

Worth the read for sure!

Lovely fairy tale story & romance

I’ve had my eye on this book for a while before it came out, and I wasn’t disappointed! As you might guess, the story takes elements from the classic Red Riding Hood fairy tale, but it also combines bits and pieces of other stories like Beauty & the Beast and Snow White. Lovers of fables & fairy tales will definitely love this book.

The romance was really well done, building up the attraction and tension between the characters slowly to make it worth it. I give 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt like the characters were a bit melodramatic and cliche in some cases, acting a little too much like teen heroes instead of adults. Overall though I’m looking forward to the next book!

Good and bad

A little hard to understand at times. I feel like the story was trying to bite off more than it could chew as well. But i like the concept
