Red and Her Wolf is a fairy tale retelling with M.Hall's personal twist on a story we all know so well. The first two books in this series were amazing, so I couldn't wait to read Red and Her Wolf. This book was no different, I love the Kingdom series and can't wait to read book four.

I'll start off the review with the Big Bad Wolf. Ewan is a wolf of the Black Foot clan. The story opens with Ewan seeing Violet. He realizes that she is his mate, and winds up saving her from being murdered. Sadly, he is forced to part ways with her in order to protect her. This of course causes Ewan to be the sad, tortured type of character that just broke my heart.

Violet is whisked away to the human world and left in the care of her "Aunt", a fairy. She has no recollection of her past, or why her Aunt makes them move so often. Though not in the story, you can tell that Violet grows into a strong, independent woman. She gains back her memories, the main being a wolf almost killing her, and becomes aware of her powers rather quickly.

The actual plot in the book is Violet and Ewan together on a journey. As always I'm impressed with the characters not being in insta-love, considering this is a novella length book. All in all this series is a must read. If you haven't read anything by Marie Hall, do yourself a favor and grab her freebie of book one in the Kingdom series (Her Mad Hatter) on Amazon. If you enjoyed fairy tales/Disney movies as a child, you will love these.

  1. I loved book one in the series! The Big Bad Wolf was so the one I wanted to read about next. Can't wait for some more free reading time to get to these again. So glad to hear it rocked too :)
