Waiting on Wednesday with Crimson Bound


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 standalone novel, not part of the Cruel Beauty Universe.)

This is another one that will be great for my fairy tale re-telling challenge! I enjoyed the take on Beauty and the Beast with Cruel Beauty, so I am excited to see where this one goes!

  3. I have an audiobook of Cruel Beauty but I'm lame and haven't listened to it yet! I do know almost everyone who's read it loved it though so I'm definitely reading it this year so I can continue on with Crimson Bound when it comes out. This sounds awesome too! :)
