Amarrah Brewer is desperate and grief-stricken.
For ages, the town of Bitterburn has sent tribute to the Keep at the End of the World, but a harsh winter leaves them unable to pay the toll that keeps the Beast at bay. Amarrah volunteers to brave what no one has before—to end the threat or die trying.
The Beast of Bitterburn has lost all hope.
One way or another, Njål has been a prisoner for his entire life. Monstrous evil has left him trapped and lonely, and he believes that will never change. There is only darkness in his endless exile, never light. Never warmth. Until she arrives.
It’s a tale as old as time… where Beauty goes to confront the Beast and falls in love instead.
Bitterburn is such an incredibly unique take on a fairytale. Taking a familiar tale we all know and turning it into something unlike anything I’ve read before! Ann Aguirre creates a world of mystery, magic, romance, and raw emotion that swept me away into a wintery world I never wanted to leave. I was absolutely enthralled by Amarrah and Njål’s story. There is not one thing that could have pulled me away from this book.
I went through all the emotions while reading this. My heart ached for both Njål and Amarrah. My pulse pounded as the mystery began to slowly unravel while keeping me guessing at every turn. My heart soared as Amarrah and Njål’s feelings began to grow into such a beautiful love. Bitterburn is a truly magical tale and I cannot wait to see what else this series will bring!
