Review: How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks
To Tame a Beast in Seven Days
The Embraced Series
Kerrelyn Spark’s previous series, Love
at Stake, constantly hit the New York
Times bestseller list and created a massive fan following for her witty
vampires. With the end of her vampire series, comes the start of an
extraordinary new fantasy romance series called The Embraced beginning with HOW
TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS (St. Martin’s Paperbacks; March 7, 2017). Set
in a medieval mythical world, the series explores a special group of people
with powers born when the two moons of the world form an eclipse. In the start
of the series we meet Luciana, who can speak to the dead, and the Beast of
Benwick who can controlling lightening.
Luciana grew up on the Isle of Moon, hidden away because of her magical
powers. But when her father arrives, he offers her a choice: remain on the
island or return with him and marry the Beast of Benwick in order to save their
legacy - and her father's life.
Lord Leofric, the Beast of Benwick, has not been touched since he was a
child. Born with the power to harness lightning, he is a danger to everyone he
touches. When he meets his betrothed, he expects a loveless, lonely
marriage...until he discovers she's vastly more powerful than he realized. But
is she strong enough to withstand his touch?
If they can survive, their love will alter the future of the kingdom.
But will their extraordinary powers cost them everything?
romance, humor, and a beautifully imagined new world, HOW TO TAME A BEAST IN SEVEN DAYS is a fantasy in the vein of Game of Thrones with all the fun of The Princess Bride. Luciana is a vibrant
leading lady that will have readers rooting for her spunk and devotion to her
family while the Beast is a swoon worthy hero worth taming.
