I am a huge fan of a good wolf shifter story, plus I normally enjoy a good Little Red Riding Hood retelling, so when this book with its beautiful cover popped up on my recommended list I snatched at the chance to read it.
I really enjoyed Red’s Alpha’s. While giving nod to the original fairytale, the authors have given the story its own unique tale - however, there’s still Red (obviously), grandma, the woods, and the big bad wolf (wolves). The inclusion of varying supernatural creatures gives this RH book a more urban fantasy feel. I would of liked to have seen more from the supernatural community and am hoping book two gives us that.
Red, Amelia Redford, is a bit of an enigma. There is mention of a wilder past prior to her coming to Crimson Hollow but we don’t really get to see that; Red herself points out that she must appear as a bit of a wallflower to those in Crimson Hollow. Then after the attack, suddenly Red is showing a fiery temper coupled with a big mouth. So who’s the real Red? Hopefully book two gives us a little more insight inter Red’s past and how she fits together.
I like how Soars and Hercules have portrayed the wolf shifters. From the way the shifters change forms to the pack hierarchy and rules, it lends itself to being a truly good shifter series. Plus the guys don’t hurt one bit *wink* *wink*.
This is a RH with steamy scenes and, while there’s talk of hearts, there’s no insta love. But, as those who are familiar with shifter stories will know is common, there is plenty of insta lust. Soars and Hercules’ writing style is one that is enjoyable and easy to read, their story and the scenes happening within ensures you will continue turning the pages until the very end. And, while the ending wasn’t a surprise, it is a cliffhanger so be warned. Now to patiently wait for book two...
