Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed–you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.
She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her.
Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.
This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened…
I really didn’t know what to expect from this book. I’ve read different tellings of Little Red Riding Hood before but this one totally blew my mind. This was the most unique telling I’ve ever read. It’s a dark fairytale with a twist. Instead of the wolf being the bad guy, he’s the good guy! Red’s the one who’s not so good in this one. I won’t say more because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else. I will say that this book seems to have a little something for everyone. There’s romance, mystery, suspense, and even some humor. There’s also a little bit of other tales mixed in, with characters you’ll recognize. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down.
