Publisher's Summary

Plagued by misfortune, Ingrid Norling treks into the woods to clear her head. She emerges a monster-slayer, the shaken executioner of a creature so ferocious that even the king's strongest warriors could not destroy it. In a land that reveres swords and worships strength, this accidental heroism earns Inge an audience at court and an ill-fated prize: King Halvard impulsively adopts her and names her as his heir.

Under constant guard to prevent her escape, Inge confronts the ignoble underbelly of the royal court: a despotic king, a clueless princess, a proud warrior, and a dangerous intrigue. As secrets unravel and the castle becomes an elaborate deathtrap, Inge must keep her wits close and her weapons closer.

The monster in the woods was only the beginning.

New twist on a classic

I loved the pace of this story, the narrator was on point with portraying the characters even the minor characters she made interesting. I love the author’s other books especially Kingdom of Ruses and Tournament of Ruses. A light hearted read that allows you enjoy the story.

Didn’t like Beowulf, LOVED this

I remember slogging through Beowulf in AP English in high school and loathing it. This book is so fantastic that I’m tempted to go back and read Beowulf again (I won’t though).

The characters are great- all have depth to them and develop as the story progresses. The story itself is engaging too. I listened to the whole thing in two days and wished there was more. It has a bit of a fairy tale feel to it, and you become very immersed in the world the author creates.

Even the prologue note by the author was so lovely and heartwarming!

The narrator was fantastic. Each character is discernible and she does a wonderful job of bringing the story to life.

So glad to have found this book!

Fantastic story!

I loved this book! Inspired by Beowulf, it had a lovely mix of mystery and magic. I had a pretty good idea what would happen in general, but some of the details kept me guessing and I loved that! It felt a little like a legend passed down through the ages too, which was nice. It took me a minute to get used to the omniscient POV, but once I did it was seamless. I loved the characters and the world created by the author. Definitely recommend!

A Pleasent Surprise

Loved it. Kate Stradling is a new author for me. However, I give her credit from pulling me out of my book slump. This light-hearted story made laugh, swoon, and respect the Stradling's treatment of characters and plot devices. Narrator kept me entertained the entire time.

Sad

It had the potential to be a great story but I couldn’t stand the narration and wasn’t a fan of the actual story itself. I think perhaps it is intended for a younger audience.
