Self-standing PNR novel! Here’s the universal buy link for The Beast and The Sibyl
Universal Buy Link:
“We caught a Beast! A real live poxy Beast!”
Bastards. Calling us beasts while they cheat, steal, and lie. I got kicked in the ribs, a whip laid about my shoulders, and all the time they were screaming.
“Kill the Beast!”
Then I saw her. She was standing there, staring right into my eyes. For a moment, I thought I was looking at a Valkyrie, one of Valhalla’s shield maidens. She had hair the colour of ice, and eyes as blue as the sky. Tall, willowy, and silent, she looked unworldly. There was a wolf at her side, too.
I blinked, expecting her to vanish, but it wasn’t a vision. She was real. The knowledge hit me with a punch that sucked the breath out of me. She was one of us, a Skraeling of Thule.
She leaned on the wolf, controlling it with a touch of her hand. “Lady Freyja always advises counsel before action.”
A Skraeling woman who invoked our goddess yet who was a traitor. I was filled with sudden hate, poisoned by the thought of one of our own people contaminated by foul betrayal.
If the will were a weapon, she would have fallen on the spot. Instead, the world blurred again. I think I passed out for a few moments because when I opened my eyes, he was there. The Patriarch. A cheat, a liar and all-round scum bucket
He certainly hates us Skraeling. “Glorious Ullr will bring us wise counsel. And tomorrow we will flog the Beast to cleanse him of his sins, and then we will burn him alive!”
He’s a vicious Beast, violent and dangerous. Bliss knows she ought to walk away. After all, she has a dark and dangerous secret to preserve. When she can’t leave him to burn, her rescue tumbles them both into danger, adventure and romance.
The Beast and The Sibyl by A.J. Adams
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Beast and The Sibyl is the 3rd book in the Prydain Series. “Prydain, an imaginary place that combines Anglo-Saxon England with Medieval England, the Teutonic Kingdom and the Viking Age”.
This is Bliss and Siv Olafson “(aka Skull Crusher, son of Siv Bloodaxe, who was son of Olaf the Red, the scourge of Haven)”. Bliss rescues The Beast and continues to call him “Beast” throughout this story because neither trust each other. Yet, they must learn to trust.
Another very good book that I was caught up in while reading it. As with all the Prydain books they can be read as a standalone. I can’t wait to read more books by AJ Adams.
I give The Beast and The Sibyl 4.5 stars.
I write cartel and crime romances, with twisted dark heroes and feminist arse kicking heroines.
