When Rachelle was fifteen she was good-apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic.
But when Rachelle was fifteen she was also reckless—straying from the forest path in pursuit of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness.
Rosamund Hodge – Crimson Bound
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 hunt for the legendary sword that might save their world.
Together, they navigate the opulent world of the courtly elite, where beauty and power reign and no one can be trusted.
And as they become unexpected allies, they discover 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?
random thoughts about fantasy & science fiction books
The most pronounced Red Riding Hood aspect that I noticed is only in the beginning of the novel, and as far as I could tell, the only part of The Girl With No Hands fairy tale in the novel is that Armand has no hands. So I was slightly disappointed that this self-proclaimed fairy tale adaptation was more of an original fantasy with small fairy tale references. The romance was the usual type and so were most of the plot reveals; nothing was truly surprising. Of course she would be the one person to overcome it and save the day.
The Crimson Moon's Fairy Tale
I was impressed with the originality of Cruel Beauty , but Crimson Bound relies much too heavily on overused and obvious tropes. I did like the character of the Bishop and his role in the novel.

It also showed that Hodge was going to be two-dimensional with the religion in the book after all, rather than the very one-dimensional front that had been displayed up until that point.

The Sultan was sitting in the hall of justice when Abu Nowas entered, his eyes streaming with tears, for he had rubbed some pepper into them. They smarted dreadfully, and he could hardly see to walk straight, and everyone wondered what was the matter with him. What has happened? And when the money was counted out Abu Nowas bowed low, and left the hall, his tears still flowing, but with joy in his heart.
Now you must go to the Sultana, clothed in sackcloth and robes of mourning, and tell her that your husband, Abu Nowas, is dead, and you have no money for his burial. When she hears that, she will be sure to ask you what has become of the money and the fine clothes she gave us on our marriage, and you will answer, "before he died he sold everything. Then Subida took up a purse containing two hundred gold pieces, and said: 'Your husband served us long and faithfully. You must see that he has a fine funeral. They spent some happy hours planning how they should spend it, and thinking how clever they had been.

Oh, if they only knew, how angry they would be! She came to tell me herself only a couple of hours ago,' replied Subida, 'and as he had spent all their money, I gave her something to bury him with.
But Abu Nowas happened to be sitting with his wife behind the latticed window, which looked on the street, and he saw the man coming, and sprang up at once. They have sent him here to find out the truth. She was only just in time, for the sheet was hardly drawn across her when the door opened and the porter came in. Be quick and spread the sheet over me.
