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.
