For fans of The Strange & Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender and Lemony Snicket's: A Series of Unfortunate Events
An eccentric tale of tragic loss and renewed hope.
Do not go gentle into the wolf's asylum...
Once every twenty years, pack alpha Luther takes a new wife. On the day of Selection, Red is chosen. Just as her family always planned. Just as she always planned. Until she met Alex Plain.
Alex took Red to worlds she never imagined, where the ordinary is seen as magical, and the upright is abstract. With the help of this new friendship, Red begins to see a future for herself outside of the pack. But, unfortunately, Alex Plain came along too late.
Red is obligated to marry Luther now, and taken to live in the mysterious Ravenswood Mansion, where truth lies and the walls have eyes. What Red learns there about her alpha will ignite some burning questions--ones that, when answered, could undo the entire order of the pack: What happened to all the children born there? Why hasn't this mansion left the last century behind? And where are all his previous wives?

The Untold Story
Angela M Hudson
Unexpected; different; special!!!
- The cover is amazing!!! I would have bought this book without even reading the blurb. It’s catching, mysterious, sexy!
- I have enjoyed the plot. In fact, the author works with two sub-plots, that will merge at the end. It’s a fast-paced read, that keep you guessing.
- It’s a very creative concept and really surprising. I was expecting one thing and got something totally different. Really better than what I had in mind.
- Red is a great character. She is a bit of rebel, the sort of female that will stand up for herself. She is easy to like and relate.
- All secondary characters are also very interesting. They play with all of my emotions.
- I felt like laughing, crying,cussing, hating, loving … really a well written cathartic experience.
- When you think you are going to the fairytale, it’s a very modern realistic story. Creatively written!
- I guess sometimes both main subplots, the one with Red and Luther and the other with Red and Alex, had a bit of trouble converging into the same story. I can’t really explained but I had trouble a few times in believing it all was the same story.
- I’m uncertain that I would call this young adult. Even though the main character is young, the whole selection thing with a too old man, could border taboo for some. Not for me really, but I love taboo.
You MAY buy this book because you like fairy tales; you SHOULD buy this book because you want to read something different; you MUST read this book if you are ready to be taken out of the norm into the UNEXPECTED!!!
