YA Book Review: Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge - This book has turned me into a puddle of feels, and I can’t recommend it enough! Genres: Family, Fantasy & Magic, General, Love & Romance, Young Adult
Crimson Bound - Rosamund Hodge - “Crimson Bound” retells “Little Red Riding Hood” with a dark, magical twist. When Rachelle strays from the forest path, she ends up bound to an evil master and turned into a killer. With feelings for both the captain of the king’s guards and the prince she is ordered to protect, Rachelle must find a way to save both herself and her world from the Devourer.
Epic Reads Cover Reveal: Crimson Bound - Rosamund Hodge | *swoons* This is even better than the Cruel Beauty cover. And I love the tagline, which subverts the trope of the protective dude. And she doesn't want to have feels, which probably means I will.
