For the Wolf
For the Wolf | Hannah Whitten
The first daughter is for the Throne. The second daughter is for the Wolf. As the only Second Daughter born in centuries, Red has one purpose - to be sacrificed to the Wolf in the Wood in the hope he'll return the world's captured gods. Red is almost relieved to go. Plagued by a dangerous power she can't control, at least she knows that in the Wilderwood, she can't hurt those she loves. Again. But the legends lie. The Wolf is a man, not a monster. Her magic is a calling, not a curse. And if she doesn't learn how to use it, the monsters the gods have become will swallow the Wilderwood - and her world - whole.

This was blazingly good — a fantasy woven of fable and its own myth, promises and obligation, love and need, secrets and magic and loss. The characters live and breathe in a way almost tangible, and the story just pulses with their emotion and experiences truly exceptional, esp as a debut novel.

Two nights before she was sent to the Wolf, Red wore a dress the colour of blood.

This felt like a good fall-winter read, but boy am I sorry I picked it up over my lunch hour. Kickstarts right into the main action of the story, and is immediately compelling. How I am supposed to pay attention to work now is beyond me🤣

Maybe this makes me sound kind of dumb, but this book was a little hard to follow at times. It was another one of those situations where the main character(s) don‘t know the whole or true story of the situation they‘re in, so that might have something to do with it. I liked it, but I‘m in no desperate rush to read the sequel.

For the Wolf is a devouring book with strong roots in fairy/folk tales. The world building could have been tighter. Definitely invested enough to read the sequel.

My new favorite duology. I love how each book followed a different twin but still showed how their lives intertwined the whole time.
Red is to be sacrificed to the Wolf to keep her kingdom safe, but she might not be the only person given a role they don‘t want.
Neve is trapped in the Shadowlands after trying to save her sister and the only person she can trust might be the one person she shouldn‘t.
TW:if you‘re a twin, book 2 will make you cry

For most of this book I liked it a lot but wasn‘t sure it would live up to the hype… but then things started coming together, and exploding, and WOW, it totally does. I love all the characters, the setting, and the twists on fairy tales so big they leave the original stories in the dust. I want to play a video game set in the Wilderwood (I don‘t even play video games)! Of course I put For the Throne on hold immediately.

I enjoyed the dark twist of Little Red Ridinghood with beauty and the beast. The magic is within the woods, claiming them both. A subtle theme was choice. Choosing who you want to be in accordance with what has been given to you. That‘s why it was different for Red, the generations Second Daughter for the wolf. There was a lot of time in the wood, fighting the wood, that could‘ve been whittled down a bit. Their attraction is mutually blooming

Not a bad book, just not my favorite. I almost gave it a pick but it took so long for me to get engaged, that I decided so-so was more appropriate. Oddly, I think the next in the series will be much better! I was frustrated with the character development at first, but eventually I clicked with the MC. I‘m glad to learn that Neve‘s story (I liked her dev. better than the MC) continues in the sequel, For the Throne, and I willread that too. 3/5⭐️

4.5/5

In this matriarchal society, second daughters are sacrificed to the Wilderwood that trapped the world's gods, monsters, and magic centuries ago. Red has had a taste of the dangerous magic the forest contains, but she learns that the stories she's been taught aren't entirely fictional or entirely true.

Ms Whitten‘s fairy tale is competently crafted but, in a word: overwrought. A bit too much unfulfilled sexual tension; a few two many familiar tropes, but at its foundation an okay story. The Wolf, Eammon has inherited the role of Wilderwood warden, keeping evil forces imprisoned. The 2nd regal Valleydan daughter is traditionally sent as a sacrifice to the wood. Redarys (Red) embraces her fate because she fears the wild magic within. 1st in series

Kimberlone I gave it a pick but agree with your criticisms! The political drama at the court involving the sister was my least favorite part of the book… 7mo

A retelling of both Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast, we enter the world of a magical forest and the Wolf, a title given to the man/monster/God (no one is really sure) who lives within the woods.

Really enjoyed this - definitely uses very familiar tropes and set pieces but the characters are very engaging and the story is compelling. A solid dark fantasy with aspects of fairytale retelling. It is going to be a duology but the first ends satisfactorily; the core of the story is the relationship between two sisters and so it‘s basically one book for each sister. I will definitely be getting the second when it comes out.

Started slow, but eventually I was pulled into the story. Kind of a Red Riding Hood/Beauty and the Beast retelling mashup. I liked the build up of the romance and the fantastical elements mostly worked really well. The main thing I didn‘t enjoy was the interludes following the MC‘s sister back in the kingdom - way too much boring political/religious machinations. I will probably check out the sequel even though it continues with the sister‘s plot.

Small post binge this morning as I am a bit behind!!

I don't want to say a lot a lot about this one because it was an #LMPBC read, but I did overall enjoy it, although I did find the world-building a little uneven/slow, which meant that there were times that I was frustrated because I didn't really know what was going on. Still a pick overall, and I'll definitely read the sequel when it comes out.

TheAromaofBooks @Nessavamusic - There was a lot of potential here, but I felt like she chose to keep some things “hidden“ for too long - I also found it a bit unbelievable that The Wolf wouldn't tell Red what was going on much earlier, so it felt a little contrived. 10mo
Chrissyreadit @TheAromaofBooks I was really torn. I think this story concept could have been incredible but she needed a few more edits to tighten up and create more cohesion. 10mo
TheAromaofBooks @Chrissyreadit - I'm really interested to read the second book when it comes out. With some of the world-building aspects already settled, maybe it will flow better? I just felt like she was trying too hard to be mysterious. 10mo

I DNF'd the tagged book (yes, already)...It just wasn't cutting it. I need to quit adding fantasy to my tbr...because there isn't much that interests me lately. It's kind of weird it starts out feeling like a retelling of Red Riding Hood and then turns into a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

Sorry friends! I just did not like this one. It was so painful for me to read. I didn‘t really connect with any of the characters and they seemed a bit flat. I could never get a grasp on the world. I don‘t want to say too much more, but hopefully you‘ll all like it more than me!

🎧 I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy this.

This book is similar to Beauty & the Beast down to meeting in the Wolf‘s library. Then there‘s Red in her red cloak heading into the woods as the second born to give her life to the Wolf so there‘s a it Little Red Riding Hood.

There‘s a legend. It‘s been a 100 years since the last second born was sacrificed to the Wolf.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 👇🏻

Twainy Red‘s spunky. (Her magic is a calling not a curse)

Amon‘s grouchy. (The Wolf who is actually a man)

The 5 kings Red‘s sacrifice is supposed to unleash are the monsters not the Wolf.

Red‘s twin sister is a queen too soon & disappears mysteriously.

If any of that interests you then you might enjoy this book.

My feelings are complicated- about this mashed up Beauty and the Beast with Little Red Riding Hood vibes retelling, but since this is an #lmpbc book no spoilers- until comments that will be hidden! If anyone else has read this and would chat with me I‘d be so appreciative! I can‘t wait to hear what my group thinks!!! These are my two absolute fairy tales- so really really want to chat about it!

Chrissyreadit So, I really liked the premise a lot- I thought it was original and interesting. But I felt like there were inconsistencies in the story and some tropes that were too juvenile for what the story could have been. I also wondered if I missed context without realizing it. 12mo

I thought this would be more Little Red Riding Hood but really is closer to a Beauty and the Beast rewrite. It's YA in the sense that it's a pretty mild and muted story and honestly a bit confusing at times but I think I like it enough that I'll listen to the second one, For the Throne, as well.

This was a pleasant surprise. A retelling of Little Red Riding Hood but spun on its head with magic, mystery and love woven into it. Red is more than just the girl who stumbles into trouble. She is the fierce woman who is driven by a soul deep purpose she doesn't quite understand but trust.
