Publisher's Summary

A fairy-tale journey of intrigue and romance that reimagines the classic Pied Piper story. 

A plague of rats. A giant beast outside the village walls. A host of missing children. And one young woman determined to save her people.

In 1424 Hamlin, Katerina faces threats from all sides. An outbreak of rats has overtaken the village, a mysterious beast is on a killing rampage of the village’s children, and Katerina’s evil stepfather is a dark presence inside the walls of her own home. Katerina is determined to hunt and kill the Beast of Hamlin herself before more lives are lost.

When Steffan, the handsome but brash duke’s son, comes to town seeking glory and reward, Katerina decides he might be the ally she’s been looking for - even though the only gentle thing about him seems to be the sweet music he plays on his pipe. But there’s more to Steffan than she suspects, and she finds herself drawn to him despite her misgivings.

Together, Katerina and Steffan must stop the enemy from stealing the children of Hamlin. But their interference might create an even worse fate for the entire village. 

Praise for The Piper’s Pursuit:

The Piper’s Pursuit is a lovely tale of adventure, romance, and redemption. Kat and Steffan’s righteous quest will have you rooting them on until the very satisfying end!” (Lorie Langdon, author of Olivia Twist and the Doon series)

Snore

HOW did this book get decent reviews?! I've read thousands of books. Literally. And I think this one may have shot to the top as the most boring, formulaic, uninspired thing I've ever read. I actually fell asleep a few times during it and didn't bother rewinding. I cannot believe how little I cared about these characters and their plodding romance. No magic, flat characters, and predictable events.
I've read another title or two by the same author and liked them well enough, but this one was like she needed a quick paycheck and cobbled this together in a weekend. Waste of a good credit.

Great story, great characters

I enjoyed this story as much as I did all of the others. I have become a diehard fan of Ms. Dickerson’s. As such I’ve read the books in this series multiple times. My only disappointment in this story is I expected to hear a more substantial mention on Volten aka Lord Hamlin and I was wildly excited to read some of the story would take place in Keiterhafen because I hoped the story would then include Sir Gerek and Rapunzel (Elsebeth). When last we heard of Keiterhafen, it had been gifted to Sir Gerek. Wolfgang, Rapunzel and Volten are my favorite characters so I’d hoped to see there stories converge. No matter - this was a fine story nonetheless.
