Red: Review

From Goodreads:
Bad girls burn hot…

Red is the color of Kia Alcott's hair.
It's her temper, which blazes hot and always gets Kia into way too much trouble.
And it's the color of fire. Fires that Kia can start…just by thinking about them.

When her latest "episode" gets her kicked out of school, Kia is shipped off to her grandmother, who works for the wealthy Blackwoods. It's an estate shrouded in secrets, surrounded by rules, and presided over by a family that is far from normal…including the gorgeous and insolent Ethan Blackwood.

Ethan knows far more about the dangers of the forest surrounding the estate than Kia can ever imagine. For this forest has teeth, and Ethan is charged with protecting the outside world from its vicious mysteries.

But inside, even the most vibrant shade of red doesn't stand a chance against the dark secrets of the Blackwood family…

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! The powers and the creatures, the Cabal, well, yeah, were really interesting! Fantastic, and like Stolen Away, I'd really love a sequel or two! There's just great worlds-and characters-to explore further from both books!

Kia, I just absolutely loved her! Such a smart, witty and sarcastic lady, who still cares for people, she isn't naive, but she isn't jaded either. Just the kind of person that you'd want in a position of power, when she grows up! Because caring, but knowing the realities, yeah.

Loved the POV's of Kia and Ethan. Ethan was a bit of a mystery, and his bad boy persona, well, it was very strong, and without his POV bits, he wouldn't have been as likeable as he was! So both POV's were necessary and great!

 There are still some questions after that wonderful and excellent ending. Questions that I'd love to be answered with another book! And since it just came out, there's a possibility that we could get another book, so we'll just have to hope and pray that we get one!

Such a great, lovely book, I enjoyed it so much! Again, really want a sequel, or even a companion novel! I just want more!

Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream.

Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with three dogs and her husband. She likes chai lattes, tattoos, and books.
