Scarlett and the Bear (Fairy Tales with a Shift) by Cara Wylde

Scarlett

Scarlett and the Bear is the next book in the Shift Your Fate series by author Cara Wylde. This fairy tale is a re-imagined telling of Little Red Riding Hood.

Scarlett is amazing at throwing her father’s hunting knives. She practices everyday and never misses her mark. While practicing one day, a strange man approaches her. He learns of the wolf-shifter and the hell he is putting the villages through. She lives in a place called “5 Villages”. All five villages used to have their own names but since being taken over by the wolf-shifter, they all are named collectively. Each year, a tribute of sorts, is chosen from one of the villages and this year is Scarlett’s villages turn.

All the eligible people gather in a group. The mayor spins all the names until he feels that they’re mixed up enough. He pulls out a name and it happens to be Scarlett’s. She is in shock while her mom begins wailing immediately. The men close around Scarlett so she can’t run but she’s too numb to think of doing anything.

That night, she is escorted into the woods. After they reach the clearing, she keeps walking on her own since the townsfolk are too scared to go any further.

This is a short book with around 60 pages. So it doesn’t take a long time to read. It’s a cute story although I thought part of it was rushed. I would have liked for a couple scenes to have been longer but it’s good the way it is. I love reading Cara’s works and this one is no different. I never have been a huge fan of Little Red Riding Hood but I do like her version.
