  • Loved the Wolf!

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit! I jumped at the chance to read this book since it sounded like something that I would like. As soon as I started reading, I was hooked and looked forward to picking up the book every chance I could. I found the story to be unique and interesting while the characters were very likable. I had a great time reading this story. I will say that I went into this book expecting a Little Red Riding Hood retelling but I found this story to be closer to Beauty and the Beast, or maybe a combination of both. Red has always known that she is to be a sacrifice to the Wolf since she is the Second Daughter while her sister, Neve, is destined to inherit the throne. Those close to Red encourage her to run but she decides to go into the Wilderwood as expected of her. The Wolf is not what she expected him to be and she finds that she has a lot to learn. I really liked Red. She has lived knowing that her life is to be cut short when she is given to the Wolf. When she reaches the Wolf, she is somewhat lost and isn’t quite sure what her role there is. Eammon, the Wolf, was anything but fierce. He has been thrown into his role just as Red has. He works hard to keep the woods safe and to keep Red safe. I thought that they made a great pair. I also really liked seeing how things were going in the city with Neve. Everything came together to a rather exciting finale. I would recommend this book to others. I really enjoyed the story and found the world-building to be very well done. I cannot wait to read the next book in this exciting series! I received a digital review copy of this book from Orbit Books via NetGalley.

  • Interesting Read

    It's a good story, interesting world and strange magic. There were some things that bothered me and didn't really add up but otherwise good.

  • A fun take on Little Red Riding Hood

    Thanks to Netgalley And Orbit Books for the ARC of this in exchange for my honest review. This was some really great monster-boyfriend, fairy tale retelling, with sort of found family dynamics. I found the whole thing to be a really interesting take on Little Red Riding Hood, and it was hard to put down. Loved the friends, they were all really interesting in their own right. I’m excited to continue the series for sure.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • It was terrible

    Initially I bought it because book took raved about it. I liked the artwork and feel of the book overall but really didn’t enjoy the story all too much. You are thrown into the story and even until the end you have no clue what is really happening and why. The male lead was as boring as a slice of bread and the female lead was about the same. Hated when the story was interrupted by the sisters pov as that was actually worse than the story between the two lead characters. I actually was about to DNF this book because of it. Overall the book was too confusing without any clarification on what is going on but the idea for the plot was not bad. Will most likely not read part two. Sorry. I wanted to love it. I really did but I just couldn’t.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Slow but Intriguing

    I'll preface this review by saying that I just read A Court of Thorns and Roses, for the first time, only a month before I read For the Wolf. This is a bit unfortunate as their introductory stories are both based on Beauty and the Beast. Our leading gal is taken by a 'monster' and held 'captive' (sort of). Which, of course, results in them developing feelings for one another. Most would agree that ACOTAR is a pretty amazing read (captivating, quick, and kind of like crack, you just want more!). The opening 300+ pages of Hannah F. Whitten's first book in the Wilderwood series is perhaps the exact opposite. It's fairly boring, predictable, and seems to go on-and-on for no real purpose at times. I'm not sure why we didn't get more character development (besides a bit from our two lead characters) or why there is seemingly no foreshadowing whatsoever. Even the explanations of magic, politics, culture, etc. don't give (or at least not for me) any hints as to what might be coming next. And given how this story twists it seems fairly important to maybe give your readers a sense of what is coming. But I will say this... that first 300 pages of boredom is worth it! Things really change up and have some excitement to them in the latter half of For The Wolf. Lots of interesting gothic-esque ideas are brought about (although not as gothic and dark as I want, but for your average fantasy reader I'm sure it's just right) and some really interesting dilemmas and situations come up. Which leaves me to my last pet peeve... you absolutely cannot take a big, and I mean BIG, idea and repurpose it. This faux pas is almost as bad as having a castle in your book named Hogwarts. You can have a magical school castle but it needs a different name at least! <minor spoiler ahead...> You cannot put someone into a 'shadow land' and then describe said land as upside-down. Like literally trees are upside-down. Now maybe it's because I just finished watching season 4 of Stranger Things; but I think the show is more than big enough by now to say that you should NOT borrow from it. Or, if your story and description came first; maybe consider tweaking it a bit because as son as I read about upside-down shadow lands all that happens is I feel annoyed that someone would rip the concept right out of Stranger Things. Right or wrong; that is how it comes across to me. As I do plan to read book 2, I know I will have to get over my annoyance with this. As it does appear our shadow lands will be prominently featured in it. So let this be a warning instead to future publishers and authors; please, please make sure you change something just enough, or at least name it differently so that your readers aren't rolling their eyes at the blatant rip-off. And again, intentional or not, you just can't use something so widely known in pop culture and hope no one notices. Please note: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. This is an honest and unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
