    Dark Fantasty - Wonderful!

    The Beast and the Sibyl by AJ Adams A Prydain Story #3 Make believe fairytales for adults set in a world that does not exist but links well enough to places read of in history books makes this story a splendid read. Prydain is a place that has laws and lords that do and don’t get along; it has a belief system filled with myth and more; it has people that speak the same language; it is a place comprised of more than one kingdom; it is a splendid place to go and spend time with women, warriors; human and feral beasts; it is a place I can see in my mind’s eye; a place like no other; a place to visit when I want to get away. In this story we are able to catch up with the group known by others in Prydain as Beasts. They are coexisting with their Brighthelme women in Skraeling Point – and not always thrilled to be together. Siv, one of the men, has gone off to fish alone but a storm blows him off course and as a result he finds himself in a world of hurt with a painful death in his near future. Into this nightmare walks Bliss with her tame she-wolf. Bliss has been raised in Prydain but is not of their blood and has not been totally accepted. Her story and Siv’s overlap and their journey kept me reading without stop until I finished the last page. I love the camaraderie of the Skraeling men, I love the way they work together all for one, I love the fact that they are able to vote democratically and include women in their democracy, I find their love of family heartwarming and hope they will one day be reunited with family who they miss, I love the idea that the men see the women as more than a commodity, I guess I love this book and fantasy world filled with warrior men known as beasts. I also admired Bliss and her strength in adversity – what a wise and wonderful woman she is. Her canine and feline friends added fun and a separate dimension to the story. And, I loved the way Bliss did not back down but instead was on equal par with Siv in their interactions. As a group the “Beasts” are more than capable of taking on any adversary whether it is the elements or human adversaries and they do so with both skill and wisdom. I can’t wait for the next book in this series. I don’t know if I will be taken to a new kingdom or not but wherever in Prydain the story is set I am sure I will enjoy it immensely. Thank you to the author for the ARC. This is my honest review.
