When Ruth was young, she was attacked by a wolf with green eyes. Luckily her brother was there to protect her. For years she lived with physical and emotional scars. Her fears are heightened when her brother leaves with her cousin to the Crusades. Without her brother to help her father, she takes his place at the family's shop and becomes a woman blacksmith.
After nine years, her cousin comes back but alone. She continues life working and also visiting her grandmother in the woods who was exile for being an accuse witch. One day she meets William, an earl, who is shadowed by his families curse. With more and more time William and Ruth fall more and more in love.
Although the ending is a little simple, its great.
Of all the Once Upon A Time books, this one appealed to me the most and I just LOVED it! I highly recommend it.
That being said, it's not all that great. That is, some books are better than others, and this one... is kind of in the middle. My one problem was that it was about werewolves. Almost every other book written for teens seems to be about werewolves (the other half is about vampires) and I've yet to read a Little Red Riding Hood retelling that does not turn the "Big Bad Wolf" character into a werewolf. (Except The Sisters Grimm. But I don't think that counts.)
I must mention that this book also did not follow the fairy tale very closely. (Wolf didn't eat Grandma, so I give apologies to all you bloody-minded folks. :D) But it wasn't too far off, either, and it really didn't bother me.
One thing I DID like, though, was that the romance here was well-paced. In a lot of books, characters fall in love at first sight, which always bugthers me to no end. Here, however, it wasn't lightning-fast or torturously slow. It was just right.
Also, the plot made more sense than the original tale. All the characters had clear motives, and I especially enjoyed the mirror-shielded cloak.
So, overall, this book was good, but not great. One of the better few of the series, but not the best. All in all, just a book to read when you've got nothing better to do with your time.
