When Conrad, Moiria, and Heppson’s evil enchantress mother tries to convince them to follow her dark ways, they must each decide where the line lies between good and evil, magic and mythology. Based on a lesser-known fairy tale, this young adult book features an impossible romance, an intricate plot, and twists you won’t see coming.
My thoughts: Bearskin has been one of my favorite fairy tales since I was a young teenager, so I was thrilled to have the chance to read this re-telling of the fairy tale! While there are a lot of twists that keep the reader guessing, I was surprised how dark this re-telling is. I never quite thought of the story in the way that it is told in this book!
While it is a bit darker than I care for, I think it is well worth reading if you enjoy fairy tales.
I received this book from Cedar Fort in exchange for my honest review.
