[Fangirl Corner] Crimson Bound Cover and Synopsis

Earlier this year I read and adored Cruel Beauty and immediately devoured the short story "Guilded Ashes."Finally Rosamund Hodge graces us with another fairytale retelling, this time she tackles Little Red Riding Hood. 

Check out the cover and synopsis below.

When Rachelle was fifteen she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless— straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat.
Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in an effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most—Rachelle forces Armand to help her find the legendary sword that might save their world. As the two become unexpected allies, they uncover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic, and a love that may be their undoing. In a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night?
Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.

Release Date: MAY 5, 2015  //  Publisher: BALZER + BRAY

I am SO excited for this title! Rosamund Hodge has made it clear that it's not the same universe as Cruel Beauty so we get more world building! 

I also love how Crimson Bound has similarities to Cruel Beauty. 

Also both titles are CB, I wonder if that's on purpose. 

So as you can see, I'm super excited!! Anyone else excited for this title? What do you think about the cover and synopsis?? Tell me below so we can celebrate together!


  1. I. Am. So. Excited. There are not words to express how pumped I am for this book!!!! I love love LOVED Cruel Beauty, and Crimson Bound is a beautiful title with a cover to match, I'm just full of excitement, I'm babbling.

    1. YES. W CAN BABBLE TOGETHER. Did you read Gilded Ashes? I ADORED that one!
