Bards + folklore + the Beast of Gévaudan + a historical French setting? YES PLEASE. An impossible quest, bards and historians at odds, a sweeping political conspiracy, and a twist on the tale of the Beast of Gévaudan, all set in a provincial, historical French setting... this book contains pretty much everything I look for in a historical fantasy novel, and the author does not disappoint in bringing them all to life in an entertaining, page-turning read. I stayed up past my bedtime reading this book, and then finished it first thing the next morning. The world-building is fantastic, the characters both interesting and flawed, woven together with intrigue and mystery. The style hearkens back to classic men's adventure novels, and therein lies my only complaint: there aren't many women in this book. Still, this is a fantastically written novel, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys their historical fantasy with a bit of folklore and conspiracy in the mix.
