The Forest is a dangerous place to be. Three years ago Rachelle strayed off the path and was seduced by a forestborn, a lethal creature bound to the darkness that is slowly overtaking the whole land. Now Rachelle has become a forestborn, and her human abilities are enhanced. The catch is, she has to obey every order the darkness commands her to carry out—even when it means killing the people she loves.

It contains:

• Lots of kissing (including with tongue)
• Lustful thoughts and desires
• Sex scene (it cuts off before anything happens, with only some minimal descriptions of naked bodies and tangled legs and sheets afterward)
• The word “d*mn” is used throughout
• Violence (killing innocents, beheading, cutting out parents’ hearts and eating them in a stew, stabbing people with knitting needles, fighting with swords, injuries, deaths, lots of blood, gruesome descriptions)

Crimson Bound is a young adult retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and The Girl with No Hands. It’s very violent, but does contain some good messages, and the story is led by a strong female protagonist. The writing is also beautiful to behold and should keep readers engaged in the complex plot.
