Review: Beast Hunter: A Prequel Novella to Kill the Beast by Michele Israel Harper

About the Book
Ro’s people are starving. A curse has overtaken her land, blackening the soil, wiping out crops, and bringing ruin to all. She doesn't know what to do.

The only people who thrive are the huntsmen, brought in by the mysterious Gautier to stem the flow of ravenous creatures looking for food.

When Ro accidentally kills a wolf, an idea begins to form. Could she become a huntress? Earn enough livres to feed her family?

But her world is shattered when her father promises her to a beast in exchange for his own life. If she doesn’t go, a curse will fall on her family worse than the one destroying their land. But Ro is determined to save her family another way.

Will Ro have the courage to seek her own fate instead of the one pressed upon her?

My Thoughts

I love fairytale retellings, Beauty and the Beast most of all. Beast Hunter gives an excellent and unique twist to the classic tale. I also sensed a few nods to other beloved fairytales as well, which I really loved.

I became completely wrapped up in this story, practically from the first word and once I hit the halfway point, I could not put it down. It was so engaging. The writing was descriptive and really transported me into the story. Ro was a great character who's fierce and easy to root for.

Anyone who has ever enjoyed a fairytale is sure to love Beast Hunter. I can't wait for Kill the Beast!

Four Stars
