Publisher's Summary

There were certain truths everyone knew. Never wear red or any other bright color. Make as little sound as possible if one had to be outside the protection of the sanctuary settlements. And never, ever, go out in the wild places alone. The Ragoru, an alien species set down to live among them, dwell within the forests and everyone knows that they crave all things red.

Arie’s life has always been one of playing by the rules. She doesn’t draw attention to herself. She doesn’t leave her home without her hood that conceals her bright red hair. It is a secret from everyone, and her hood protects her secret so that she may continue to live safely within the village until one day that secret comes to light. Absconding into the woods soon becomes her only safety, and she will risk her very life into the care of the very dreaded beings that all people fear, the Ragoru, in hope of making it to her grandmother’s house in the citadel at the other side of the great forest.

When circumstances reveal them to not be the monsters of human imagination, but that they stir the ravenous beast within her, Arie finds that she is willing to risk far more to find a way to be with them forever. Even if that means severing ties with her grandmother, rejecting the human comforts of the citadel, and facing the horror of the Order of the Huntsmen.

A new spin on the Little Red Riding Hood Story, bringing a well known fairy tell to a dystopian future with a wolfish alien species.

This fairy tale retelling is RH between three Ragoru males and the one woman they are devoted to. It contains adult situations, graphic sex and violence. It may not be suitable for all listeners. For those who enjoy a walk on the wild side - welcome!

I loved it but then was so upset - nothing is missing!

I loved everything about this story, the characters, the adventure, the romance - and the steamy scenes :-)! But then I read someone’s review before leaving mine- that something was missing in chapter 27. I was so upset so I bought the kindle book and read it. Nothing at all was missing. Some people are just never happy and want to cause trouble because they are so miserable themselves.. The Story Red is wonderful. I’m going to send an email to Audible about this - it’s just not right.

I'm surprised how much I liked this

Re-readable story! I usually don't care for fairytail re-imaginings, since I usually think you should leave children stories alone, but this was truly just inspired by, not literal with a few aliens thrown in. The story has some really cool characters that I didn't expect too, other than the Rigoru . I like how the narrator and author worked together to make this interesting story that just does so well taking you on a "not too complicated" ride, instead of just going on and on for 12 hours. The narrator's voice is odly soothing too, like its hard to just tear yourself away from his story telling. I can also tell the difference in voices of ALL the characters which makes the story even better. There's even some hot sexy time in here! Very refreshing adult paranormal romance.

Perfection!

This is book that I love! I’ve listened to it twice and read it once! I’ve also read The Huntress and White by S.J. Sanders. The three books have been a delight and pleasure to read and listen to on audible! I would definitely recommend this book. The author wonderfully describes the scenes and allows the reader/listener to escape!!

Review of Red by S.J. Sanders

This book was the first book of a retold Grimms tale that I have read so intently. I could not put this book down! The characters were so well written, that I felt I knew them. The narrator voice was very soothing and pleasant to really listen to. S.J. Sanders was descriptive, but not overly so. The story flowed, and did not make listening a chore or burden to listen to. Very enjoyable!

Great story!

I really enjoyed this story. It's a great flip of the traditional Red Ridding Hood. I loved the tenderness and the openness of the characters.

Amazing worldview!

I lived the world building in this book. It was amazing and sucked you in. I was just as interested in this world as I was the plot.

The twist on little red riding hood was super interesting along with the corruption of religion.

I kind of wished there had been more books and to see both humans and aliens come together.

This is most definitely one if the more memorable books I've listened to in a while.

I'm off to read the next ones!😍💗📚
