THE FIRST DAUGHTER IS FOR THE THRONE.

THE SECOND DAUGHTER IS FOR THE WOLF.

As the only Second Daughter born in centuries, Red has one purpose - to be sacrificed to the Wolf in the Wood in order to save her kingdom. Red is almost relieved to go. Plagued by a dangerous power she can't control, at least she knows that in the Wilderwood, she can't hurt those she loves. Again.

But the legends lie. The Wolf is a man, not a monster. Her magic is a calling, not a curse. And if she doesn't learn how to use it, the Wilderwood - and her world - will be lost forever.

Hannah Whitten's richly imagined debut is a sweeping tale of love, legends and the secrets that hide beyond the trees.

Reviews for For the Wolf (#1 Wilderwood)

I loved it! I was completely swept away by the world-building, the characters, and the delicate gorgeousness of the writing! A brilliant dark fantasy debut -- Jodi Picoult Blisteringly romantic and utterly transportive, For the Wolf is the kind of story you want to sink into and for all its danger and thorns the Wilderwood is a place you'll never want to leave. A must read -- Emily A. Duncan, author of WICKED SAINTS Drenched in atmosphere, with sharp and biting prose, Whitten's For the Wolf is a glorious journey through woods deep and so very dark. A stunning debut -- Erin Craig, author of HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS A dark, dazzling reimagining of 'Little Red Riding Hood' . . . Whitten lovingly weaves in elements from other fairy tales, including 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Snow White', while crafting a story that is all her own. With clever, immersive prose and a subtle touch of horror, this is sure to enchant -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) Atmospheric, folkloric and half-familiar. If you ever wished Beauty and the Beast had more eldritch forest monsters and political machinations, this is the romance for you -- Alix E. Harrow, author of THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY This hauntingly beautiful, fractured retelling of Little Red Riding Hood is dark, emotional and filled with tense action. Whitten's debut is epic and enthralling -- LIBRARY JOURNAL
