Narrator Inés del Castillo conveys the menace and tension in Whitten's intoxicating fantasy debut. Red--a Second Daughter of the Valleydan queen--is fated to be sacrificed to the Wolf in the Wilderwood. Once there, however, Red learns that her childhood lessons were nothing but lies. The Wolf is no monster, the legendary imprisoned kings are not gods, and Red herself is filled with the power to heal, rather than destroy. Del Castillo's voice is dark and seductive, with a rough edge that perfectly reflects the Wolf's ragged power and the unsettling nature of the Wilderwood. Her pacing is occasionally rushed, but her delivery is so attuned to the novel's intensity that listeners will be wholly captivated, and eager for the next installment in this enchanting series.
