Wow! I really enjoyed this book.
What better match could you have for a woman who can turn people to stone with a single look than someone who is blind? Greek mythology mixed with Beauty and the Beast made for an interesting tale of love and heartbreak. Not only did this story contain some really funny dialogue, but I found myself near to tears on multiple occasions when the story took a sad turn.
Miranda Grant has a talent for weaving an incredible story and hitting the reader right in the feels. Bjerner and the Beast is the perfect mixture to make a heartbreakingly amazing love story.
My rating 5 stars
He’s Sworn to Protect the Emperor at All Costs
When he was a child, Bjerner sacrificed his eyes to the Goddess of Death. Raised as a warrior, he’s now a trusted member of the Varangian guard. As he struggles to keep the emperor alive, Bjerner is forced to take a mission that will either see him killed or see him hailed as a hero.
She’s Tired of Heroes
All they ever want to do is try to kill her. Ever since she was born, Ophidia has been hunted like an animal and all because of what she is: a beast that has the power to turn people into stone.
Forced to hide in a cave her entire life with only the dead heroes for company, Ophidia desperately wants her next visitor to be a little less stabby.
And less inclined to look at her face.
And would it really kill them to just talk to her first?
But as the centuries pass, she’s starting to lose hope that such a man exists…
