3 not hunting so hard stars!!!
What if you were the key to an ancient prophecy that would begin to heal your lands, but fulfilling your destiny meant you had to turn your back on everything you’d been taught to believe in?
Redlynn of Volkzene, member of the Sisterhood of Red, is heartbroken to discover another girl kidnapped and her best friend slain by werewolves. Defying the head of her order, she sets out to kill the beast she believes responsible. The King of the Weres– But there are worse things in Wolvenglen Forest than the wolves.
Adrian, reluctant heir to the throne of Wolvenglen, and his band of wolf brothers are bound to protect the humans; especially the Sisterhood. Finding Redlynn unconscious in his woods, awakens in him a passion he’s never before experienced and a protective instinct that has him ready to turn on his own men. Problem is, a female is the last thing Adrian needs complicating his life.
But all is not as it seems in Wolvenglen Forest and to save the missing girls before time runs out, Redlynn and Adrian must move past their inner demons and learn to trust each other. In the search for vengeance however, sometimes you must give up what you desire most.
Red The Were Hunter won 2nd Place in the Hook, Line and Sinker Contest and is a current finalist in the Great Beginnings Contest.
I was super excited to read a Red Riding Hood retelling, this story had a great set up for that. Red as a character was brave and strong, however in other areas was rather un-intelligent. I think that might be what threw me off in the whole book. There may have been ways to set up the book without her being so naïve. Her being brave and excelling in combat was a super selling point to me throughout the whole book. I enjoyed that she was fulfilling one of the prophecies. My heart broke when I realized who one of the bad guys were toward the end. I enjoyed every single one of the side characters in this book even the main hero. He had a lot of emotional turmoil dealing with a tragic past and the curse. I kind of wish him accepting his Alpha status would’ve been a little more dramatic than it was but it was, what it was.
All in all this was a decent page turner with some slight flaws, as far as I can see each book will probably follow another character into the prophecies. I might continue on into the series because the next one involves a character I liked in this book.
