Review @VampWereZombie - Red the Were Hunter by Rebekah R. Ganiere (Fairelle #1)

Red the Were Hunter
Fairelle #1
by Rebekah R. Ganiere

Goodreads blurb:  What if you were the key to an ancient prophecy that would begin to heal your lands, but fulfilling your destiny meant you had to turn your back on everything you'd been taught to believe in?

Redlynn of Volkzene, member of the Sisterhood of Red, is heartbroken to discover another girl kidnapped and her best friend slain by werewolves. Defying the head of her order, she sets out to kill the beast she believes responsible. The King of the Weres-- But there are worse things in Wolvenglen Forest than the wolves.

Adrian, reluctant heir to the throne of Wolvenglen, and his band of wolf brothers are bound to protect the humans; especially the Sisterhood. Finding Redlynn unconscious in his woods, awakens in him a passion he's never before experienced and a protective instinct that has him ready to turn on his own men. Problem is, a female is the last thing Adrian needs complicating his life.

But all is not as it seems in Wolvenglen Forest and to save the missing girls before time runs out, Redlynn and Adrian must move past their inner demons and learn to trust each other. In the search for vengeance however, sometimes you must give up what you desire most.

Red The Were Hunter won 2nd Place in the Hook, Line and Sinker Contest and is a current finalist in the Great Beginnings Contest.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review, but I am buying it as soon as I get paid :)

The cover is subdued, but intriguing all at the same time.

This is the first book I’ve read by Rebekah, and I’m definitely going to be reading more in the future especially in this series that I’m now hooked on :)  Rebekah builds a wonderful world full of intrigue, prophesies, and in need of healing.  I love the undercurrent of the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood!  And I see the same undercurrent is probably in book 2 as well :)

When I first started reading the book, I was disconnected.  I’m not sure if it was just getting to know the new author’s style or building the new world.  This happens for me sometimes, but I’m definitely quite taken with this series and plan to read more.  Red is this amazingly strong woman, but she has blinders on so to speak.  She is definitely stubborn and so much so I was yelling at her in my mind while I was reading several times.  Adrian is sexy and just as stubborn but haunted by his family’s past misdeeds.  By the end, I was totally on Red and Adrian’s side, and I hope I will see more of them in the series because I become attached to my characters and like to see them in the rest of the series even though I know they will not be the focus of the book :)  I’m going to have to get my hands on book 2 very soon :)

I recommend this book to paranormal fans of shifters and vampires and to anyone who loves to see new stories evolve from very old fairytales :)

Interested in reading???
