Description-

  • A fairy-tale journey of intrigue and romance that reimagines the classic Pied Piper story.

    A plague of rats. A giant beast outside the village walls. A host of missing children. And one young woman determined to save her people.

    In 1424 Hamlin, Katerina faces threats from all sides. An outbreak of rats has overtaken the village, a mysterious beast is on a killing rampage of the village's children, and Katerina's evil stepfather is a dark presence inside the walls of her own home. Katerina is determined to hunt and kill the Beast of Hamlin herself before more lives are lost.

    When Steffan, the handsome but brash duke's son, comes to town seeking glory and reward, Katerina decides he might be the ally she's been looking for—even though the only gentle thing about him seems to be the sweet music he plays on his pipe. But there's more to Steffan than she suspects, and she finds herself drawn to him despite her misgivings.

    Together Katerina and Steffan must stop the enemy from stealing the children of Hamlin. But their interference might create an even worse fate for the entire village.

    Starred review from October 21, 2019
    Christy Award–winner Dickerson (The Merchant’s Daughter) reimagines the Pied Piper story in this excellent installment to her Hagenheim series, set in 1424 in the German region of the Holy Roman Empire. Katerina, a fiercely private and emotionally guarded warrior-maiden, is determined to protect her townspeople from the evildoings of her stepfather, the town mayor. When the children of the town start going missing and are presumed to be victims of the Beast of Hamlin, the mayor offers Katerina’s hand in marriage to anyone who can kill the beast. Katerina, determined to escape from her stepfather, vows to kill the beast herself. She meets handsome but arrogant Steffan, one of the sons of the Duke of Hagenheim, who is intent on winning the prize The two become reluctant partners in their quest, and, along the way, they realize their shared values and learn to trust each other. Both discover that freedom lies in forgiving themselves and in renouncing pride and surrendering control to God. Biblical themes will resonate with Christian readers, and discussion questions that will be of great use to book clubs are also included. Dickerson brings together faith, historical nuance, and a poignant romance to make a strong saga.
