Madly & Wolfhardt (Madly #2) by M. Leighton

Goodreads Description:

Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.

Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants. 

The first spirit to arrive is that of Ulrich Wolfhardt, a man that was once obsessed with wolves and a young maiden he would follow through the woods. After a bite from a wolf, Wolfhardt’s obsession with the girl became an unnatural hunger and the young maiden’s grandmother cursed him with a fate worse than death. And now he’s back…with a vengeance and a bite that can infect others as well.

Madly must learn the identity of Wolfhardt’s descendant and stop him before he kills again and spreads his curse across the earth. But the only person strong enough to help Madly is Jackson, the Sentinel who vowed to protect her and the one person capable of breaking her heart. Can Madly resist forbidden love long enough to save the world from Wolfhardt? Or will she have to sacrifice her heart and her destiny to save the ones she loves?

Mary's Review:

M. Leighton keeps the twist and turns coming with book 2.  I love how M. Leighton can intertwine mermaids and fairy tales together.

Madly and Jackson have to figure out where the "big-bad wolf" is and how to capture him.  First, they need to figure out who the descendant and try to save her.  On top of that, Madly and Jackson's feeling are growing stronger. Oh and let's not forget Madly has to save her family and save Atlas.

In this book M. Leighton twisted Little Red Riding Hood into the story and I loved how she did it.  It is somewhat hard to explain because I do not want give away any of the details BUT its so easy to read.  M. Leighton is amazing on how she twisted these into an amazing story.  The one thing that I did like it is how M. Leighton leaves the story on a cliffhanger.

Onto Book 3!
