Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris--the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.

Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?

I bought this book for one third of the original price at a book fair in my town. I checked the rating on Goodreads and it didn't even reach four stars. I reconsidered on buying this book. But, oh well, how bad could it be? Besides, I'd be able to buy it while it was cheap!

Turned out, I was pleasantly entertained by this Red Riding Hood retelling more than I could've thought possible.

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing.

They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.

I've been avoiding this book for as long as I can remember. Every time I saw it in a bookstore, I was never interested even in touching it. Why? Because it was about love! As a disease! It practically shouts the whole story line already. Of course the book would be about romance. Like, hundreds of pages of sickening romance. I predicted it'd be about a girl who (OF COURSE) eventually fell for a guy even though she wasn't supposed to.

But, well. I was wrong.

When Eadlyn became the first princess of IllĂ©a to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.

This book is a lot of things. But predictable isn't one of them.

I read through this finale with a HUGE expectation because seriously, I've been waiting for it for a whole year! And well, I didn't exactly get what I wanted.
