When Rachelle was fifteen she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless— straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat. Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in an effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most—Rachelle forces Armand to help her find the legendary sword that might save their world. As the two become unexpected allies, they uncover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic, and a love that may be their undoing. In a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night? Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.
This is a retelling and that’s why I’m excited. It’s been a while since I’ve read a retelling and I love the cover of this book! So gorgeous. I remember a friend told me to read Cruel Beauty ’cause it’s an awesome read, but I forgot to check it out. I’ve learned that Crimson Bound is also written by Hodge who wrote Cruel Beauty so I’ll make sure to get a copy of that too. I just need to clear out my TBR as soon as I can ’cause it’s out of control now. Lol! I’m so excited for this. Are you? 😀
Anyway, let’s just get to your favorite part. Giveaways! Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find an International giveaway so sorry for all my friends from outside US. 😦
