Melanie Dickerson Delivers Another Exciting Fairy Tale Journey Of Intrigue And Romance In This Reimagining Of The Classic Pied Piper Story Well this is a darker Melanie Dickerson book I will admit that considering the fact that I ve only read about half the books in this series that trying to keep up with all of the characters who have starred in this series does get a tad difficult I wish there was some sort of family tree that I could have looked at for easy reference But fortunately the last Dickerson book I read was The Warrior Maiden so I did have a somewhat foggy recollection of Steffan I actually ended up loving this dud Well this is a darker Melanie Dickerson book I will admit that considering the fact that I ve only read about half the books in this series that trying to

last Dickerson book I read was The Warrior Maiden so I did have a somewhat foggy recollection of Steffan I actually ended up loving this dude, I found his efforts to always set people at ease with humor admirable Katerina was a little hard to like at first, but she grew on me too.The stakes are high with this one With a beast or two And is the beast on four legs or two The descriptions are chilling and the mystery compelling I hate the villain with a passion This is definitely one of my favorite, if not my favorite Dickerson book I ve read to date.I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own I have enjoyed these fairy tale retellings that Melanie Dickerson puts a new twist upon for adult readers This one based on the Pied Piper of Hamlin along with a connection to the story of the Prodigal Son was my favorite so far Katerina is a strong young woman who cares deeply for her town and its people She has a wicked stepfather who has educated her and trained her in the use of sword and longbow just to show her off in public but behind closed doors, he berates and threatens her Childr

and longbow just to show her off in public but behind closed doors, he berates and threatens her Children are missing and a large beast has killed several people and the town is overrun by rats Steffan is the youngest son of the Duke Of Hagenheim, but he has spent the past years running wild Now he s heading home, but his attitude and guilt over the things he has done still haunt him This story was filled with the normal fairy tale characters both good and evil and generally, is the typical fairy tale that shows good winning over evil But Dickerson added descriptive scenes with fleshed out characters along with a well written Christian theme that made this book a very enjoyable read I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley Opinions are mine alone I was not compensated for this review Gah This was such a good book I love Melanie Dickerson so much Her writing is so beautiful and her stories are so amazing that I can hardly put them down Though this wasn t my absolute favorite I slightly blame that on the fact that I had to read this one on e book in not in paperback I still enjoyed it so much I loved all the characters Kat and

arc of Steffan in this book, that probably was my favorite part about it all I love quality redemption stories and this one is at the top of my list I really loved getting to see the Piped Piper as a retelling This fairytale fit perfectly in with what the original fairytale was about I loved Kat s and Steffan s influence in the fairytale and how everything came together I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion All thoughts are my own I was not required to write a positive review It s a good story with strong characters and a good grasp on history and fairy tales This is a Christian book but if you aren t Christian you won t feel overwhelmed by too many or over the top references and so on that can sometimes override a novel The Piper s Pursuit by Melanie Dickerson is the tenth book in Ms Dickerson s Hagenheim series This is a series of fairy tale retellings set in a non magical medieval world This story is a loose retelling of The Pied Piper of

retellings set in a non magical medieval world This story is a loose retelling of The Pied Piper of Hamelin There are so many things to love about Ms Dickerson s books I love that this quest like story involves a mystery as well Who is the mysterious beast and why are children disappearing from Hamlin Our main characters, Katerina and Steffan, work together to fight evil and figure out the mystery I love both characters and their personalities and I think they have a great chemistry Each grows personally throughout the story Ms Dickerson gives these characters some great dialogue and quips that had me smiling as I read As in a lot of Dickerson s novels, the characters pray when in danger They learn about finding their worth in Christ and not by the things they do There are some heavier subjects in this novel than in some of the past books of the series Katerina has a stepfather who is abusive to herself and her mother Dickerson deals with this topic with great care and sensitivity.I love this story and can t wait for the next book Content I give this book a PG 13 rating due to the topic of abuse Some examples of the content are gruesome descriptions of victims of the beast there is a controlling and emotionally and physically abusive husband and father allusions to alcoholism in a character s past child slavery a man suggests having his way with a girl.Rating I give this book 5 stars.I want to thank Melanie Dickerson and Thomas Nelson for the complimentary copy of this book for review I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I express in this review are my own This is in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s CFR 16, Part 255 I really enjoyed seeing Steffan s path to redemption and getting to know Katerina these characters

townspeople and children Katerina is complex, with major trust issues and a defensive exterior, while inside she is full of compassion for those being abused and willing to fight for them We see Steffan s rebellious nature in The Warrior Maiden, but in this book we begin to understand where his head was and why he made the choices he did I liked him much better as he seeks to become a better man and realizes the folly of his past There is plenty of suspense and action, and the romantic tension slowly grows as Steffan proves himself worthy of Katerina s trust I wish I could have envisioned the setting better, and would have loveddescription of the town especially Overall, an exciting and satisfying escape into this creative retelling of The Pied Piper I received a complimentary copy of

regrets fighting His determination to redeem himself lands him right in the middle of another battle, but this one is worth the risk Katerina is a brave, determined warrior type also, tirelessly working to rid the town of dangers that threaten the people She and Steffan have some fun banter after the sparks fly, and she learns to trust him Her faith becomes stronger as the intensity of the peril increases, and her character grows in depth I liked seeing her rough edges get sanded off as the story progressed.Loved how the gospel message is threaded in while Steffan realizes his need for forgiveness and mercy from his parents and God Their reconciliation is a particularly touching part of the story He and Kat go through some serious trouble to fight the evil preying on the town, particularly on the children They are a great pair Plenty of action and adventure keeps the story moving at a brisk pace This would make a terrific movie Some mature subject matter makes this a better read for older teens Overall an excellent read Recommend An ebook was provided by the publisher via NetGalley All opinions expressed are my own 3.5 stars, rounding upI really love the cover for this book I think it s so pretty This story has excellent character growth, for Steffan especially He holds much guilt and remorse over past decisions and actions and is anxious to prove himself better His road to redemption is a satisfying one I love how hard he worked to be someone Katerina could trust and depend on.Steffan and Katerina have quite the adventure, trying to solve the mystery of the

The author did an excellent job at creating a villain of Hennek My skin crawled right along with Katerina s every time he appeared I love the way Katerina stood tall and didn t cower to his vile words and actions.I enjoyed the story but mostly the character growth The romance is gentle and very slow building definitely not the prominent part of the story This one got a little long winded with the whole confession and I will admit to skimming over that part but overall there was much to enjoy here.Content mention of abuse, bullying Some violence, fighting Kissing Christian elements I received a
