This book blew me away. I love fairy tale retellings and I love Ann Aquirre’s work so it’s not surprising that I would love this book so much. The lead characters are so good and noble even when tested. The plot unfolds at a perfect pace. It feels like an old-fashioned fairy tale but with modern sensibilities. And at the heart is beautiful love story. I highly recommend it.– Amazon Review
(Gothic Fairytales Book 1)
Amarrah Brewer is desperate and grief-stricken.For ages, the town of Bitterburn has sent tribute to the Keep at the End of the World, but a harsh winter leaves them unable to pay the toll that keeps the Beast at bay. Amarrah volunteers to brave what no one has before–to end the threat or die trying.
The Beast of Bitterburn has lost all hope.One way or another, Njål has been a prisoner for his entire life. Monstrous evil has left him trapped and lonely, and he believes that will never change. There is only darkness in his endless exile, never light. Never warmth. Until she arrives.
It’s a tale as old as time… where Beauty goes to confront the Beast and falls in love instead.
