Giveaway: Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver


Red's Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver // VBCFairy tale retellings have been hot for some time, and we have to admit: we’re fans. If you’re hooked on the TV show Once Upon A Time, you’re going to love today’s giveaway. There’s a Fairy Tale 2.0 series featuring books spun from characters on the show. The Fairy Tale 2.0 campaign features different revamped fairy tale novels by different authors.

We have a giveaway of Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver, but peeking at the #FairyTale2pt0 hashtag on Twitter you’ll see giveaways for the other books in the line A Whole New World and A Frozen Heart. All three books work as standalones, which given the towering nature of our to-be-read piles is rather appealing.

Read on for details about Red’s Untold Tale and your chance to win a copy plus some sweet swag.


Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help’s Granny with Granny’s baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales. Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of “control” as she discovers she has a hot temper when the “mean girls” push her too far. (“When we learn to control it, we needn’t fear it,” Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname “Red.” She is plagued by nightmares that she doesn’t understand, but the Once Upon a Time fans will recognize them as her wolf side coming out. Red balances the difficult times with Granny at home and the girls at school with an emerging and satisfying romance with Peter. (Learn more about the book.)

    I had no clue this book even existed. That is odd for me because this is one of my favorite genres and I usually know all of the new ones before they are released. These stories are hit or miss for me, but when I love them, I really love them. I am very curious to see how the author does with this one.
