Every fairy tale has a dark side...
Elodie Rose has a secret. Any day, she’ll become a wolf and succumb to the violence that’s cursed her family for centuries. For seventeen years she’s hidden who and what she is. But now someone knows the truth and is determined to exterminate her family line. Living on borrowed time in the midst of this dangerous game of hide and seek, the last thing Elodie needs to do is fall in love. But Sawyer is determined to protect her, and the brooding, angry boy is more than what he seems. Can they outsmart a madman? And if they survive, will they find a way to beat the curse for good?
I really liked the connection between Sawyer and Elodie. She calms the beast within him and it was nice to see him not so angry and allowing himself to heal from his mother's death. I also really loved watching Elodie find her voice. She went from being a quiet girl who allowed people to bully to a pretty awesome person and I loved reading that transformation.
I thought Red was very original. There are a lot of YA paranormal books out there right now about werewolves, but I enjoyed Kait Nolan's take on it.
I will definitely have to check out Nolan's other books after reading Red!
