Book Review - The Piper's Pursuit (Hagenheim #10) by Melanie Dickerson + Giveaway

The town of Hamlin is plagued and overrun by rats. A giant beast is roaming the city walls. And over several dozen children have gone missing presumably eaten by the beast. Katerina is determined to help her people. However, her evil stepfather seems to have plans of his own.

Steffan is the rowdy son of the Duke, who is hellbent on proving himself to his family. Steffan arrives in Hamlin desperate and broke for glory and reward. When he crosses path with Katerina, they both find they might be unlikely allies.  

I found the novel to be an interesting read. I liked both main characters but, I was annoyed by how Kat kept treating Steffan even though he kept showing her how much he liked her. I thought the novel moved at a good pace without tons of filler.

The Piper’s Pursuit
by Melanie Dickerson
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release date: December 3, 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling


A plague of rats. A giant beast outside the village walls. A host of missing children. And one young woman determined to save her people.

In 1424 Hamlin, Katerina faces threats from all sides. An outbreak of rats has overtaken the village, a mysterious beast is on a killing rampage of the village’s children, and her evil stepfather is a dark presence inside the walls of her own home. Katerina is determined to hunt and kill the Beast of Hamlin herself before more lives are lost.

When Steffan, the handsome but brash duke’s son, comes to town seeking glory and reward, Katerina decides he might be the ally she’s been looking for—even though the sweet music he plays on his pipe seems the only gentle thing about him. But there’s more to Steffan than she suspects, and she finds drawn to him despite her misgivings.

Can Katerina and Steffan stop the enemy from stealing every child of Hamlin? Or will their interference create a worse fate for them all? Melanie Dickerson delivers another exciting fairy tale journey of intrigue and romance in this reimagining of the classic Pied Piper story.
