***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
When the girl with the golden hair betrays everyone, not even she has hope of surviving.
The stories say that Goldilocks was a naïve girl who wandered into a house one day. Those stories were wrong. She was never naïve. It was all a perfectly executed plan to get her into the Baers’ group to destroy them.
Trained by her cousin, Lowell, and handler, Shadoe, Auluria’s mission is to destroy the Baers by getting close to the youngest brother, Dov, his brother and sister-in-law and the leaders of the Baers’ group. When she realizes Dov isn’t as evil as her cousin led her to believe, she must figure out how to play both sides or her deception will cause everyone in her world to burn.
If her allegiances are discovered, either side could destroy her…if the Society doesn’t get her first.
I’ve read so many fairytale retellings! Dozens of Beauty and the Beasts and Sleeping Beauties and Little Red Riding Hoods but never, seriously guys, never, have I read a Goldilocks retelling. What a testament to K.M. Robinson’s creativity that she thought of combining Goldilocks into a Dystopian world at war. Wow! And she pulled it off amazingly!
Auluria, the girl with golden hair has trained her entire life to bring down the rebels by infiltrating them from within. But instead of a coup, she loses her memory and begins to find a home with these rebel “Baers”.
I have to say that this was such a fun and creative read, I wish there was a tad more character development especially with Auluria and Dov but the world-buidling was excellent.
