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 Review

Bearskin was a fabulous fairy tale retelling! It was an intricate tale with connected stories that all pushed forward a plot about a two families that became one and those that are pulled into their path as love struggles against evil. The characters were interesting and fully fledged. The ending, perfect for this story.

The characters. The evil queen who wasn't always evil and a good and powerful king who was fooled. Two princes, half-brothers, and their will that was strung again the evil queen. A sister who tried to protect and became something she didn't intend. Two sisters full of love who had separate paths to follow and love of their own to find. The characters all struggled, didn't always make the best choices, but their desires were as they should have been.

I loved how the various stories of the characters worked separately and then all came together to build this story. I was disappointed by some of the characters at some points, but they were only human with human fears and doubts. They also had so much loyalty and love, which saved them in the end.

If you enjoy fantasy or fairy tales, then I'd recommend Bearskin. A tale of sacrifice, evil intent, friendship, love, and redemption.

Content: Some violence, but clean.
