1492 Hamlin is a town fraught with a plague of rats, a deadly beast, and children going missing. Katerina is determined to save her people even while fighting her own personal threats. When Steffan, the duke’s son, shows up seeking the reward for killing the beast, Katerina decides he might be the ally she needs. But is he who he really says he is?
Melanie Dickerson continues to give us fun, exciting fairy tale retellings. With a spin on The Pied Piper and bits of history, this story is sure to entertain fans of Ms. Dickerson, of fairy tales, of Disney movies, of adventures. I look forward to more from her and sharing them with you. The heroine is strong and determines never to give up- my kind of girl! This book is also part of the Hagenheim series, book 10, but the series does not need to be read in order.
*I received this book free from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my review. What I have expressed are entirely my own thoughts. I was not compensated in any monetary way.*
My Star Rating – ****
