To end the murders, she must live with the beast of the forest.
After surviving years with a debilitating illness, Gisela must prove she is more than her ailment. She discovers her father, King Werner of Tursch, has been growing desperate for the herbs that are key to her health. So much so, he's willing to cross paths with a deadly legend of Todesfall Forest to retrieve the remedy.
Knorren is the demon of the forest, one who slaughters anyone who trespasses into his land. When King Werner steps into the demon's territory, desperately pleading for safe passage for the sake of his daughter's health, Knorren toys with the idea. However, not without a cost. King Werner must deliver his beloved Gisela to the demon or suffer dire consequences.
With unrest spreading through the kingdom, and its people growing tired of a king who won't put an end to the demon of Todesfall Forest, Gisela must make a choice. To become Knorren's prisoner forever, or risk the lives of her beloved people.
Perfect for fans of Holly Black and Sarah J. Maas. This is a dark retelling you won't want to miss out on!
An inspirational and heartwarming story!!
I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! My heart is actually racing and all I want to do is talk about this AWESOME book I just read!!! Oh my word, I’m going to have a book hangover!!!
Anyway, if you haven’t read Beaumont’s books YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!! Her book, The Dragon’s Bride has been on my top favorite book list since I read it, and now The Castle of Thorns will be on my top favorite book list with it!!!
First of all Knorren won my heart over!!! I loved Ronar from The Dragon’s Bride so much, and still do! But Knorren is neck and neck with Ronar for my favorite book boyfriend list!!! You will LOVE him!! And Gisela is AMAZING!!! She is such a strong girl!! The characters have so much growth throughout the story, it’s so emotional, heartwarming and inspiring!!! Beaumont has a real gift for writing characters that are vivid and have so much depth!! This is a book that you not only will have trouble putting down, but when you finish you will also want to pick it up and read it all over again! You will NOT want to leave these characters!!
I obviously highly recommend this book! It’s great if you love fantasy, romance, adventure and retellings!
