“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.
“Hang him!”
“Beat him!”
“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

A Prydain novel

By AJ Adams

75,000 words

Price $3.99

The Beast and The Sibyl is part of the

Prydain series and it follows Beast, a very dark romance. However, this novel

can be read as a standalone, and unlike the first novel it’s a paranormal

romance.

Excerpt

“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.

“Hang him!”

“Beat him!”

“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!”


Blurb

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.

This series isn’t for me. This is a continuation of book 1 but can be read as a standalone. The setup of the book like book one will not be for everyone.

This is all fiction and there is a lot of crossovers from various different times but here it was just too much for me. By contradicting myself here now it is well written and the author keeps a good pace of the characters and their development. But I didn’t like the characters. I am in the minority here so take my review with a pinch of salt.
