Entangled Teen

KEEPER OF THE BEES is a tale of two teens who are both beautiful and beastly, and whose pasts are entangled in surprising and heartbreaking ways.
Dresden is cursed. His chest houses a hive of bees that he can’t stop from stinging people with psychosis-inducing venom. His face is a shifting montage of all the people who have died because of those stings. And he has been this way for centuries—since he was eighteen and magic flowed through his homeland, corrupting its people.

He follows harbingers of death, so at least his curse only affects those about to die anyway. But when he arrives in a Midwest town marked for death, he encounters Essie, a seventeen-year-old girl who suffers from debilitating delusions and hallucinations. His bees want to sting her on sight. But Essie doesn’t see a monster when she looks at Dresden.

Essie is fascinated and delighted by his changing features. Risking his own life, he holds back his bees and spares her. What starts out as a simple act of mercy ends up unraveling Dresden’s solitary life and Essie’s tormented one. Their impossible romance might even be powerful enough to unravel a centuries-old curse.

Other Books in the Series

I just finished reading this book and already feel the emptiness inside of me. I tried so hard to read this as slowly as I could, but the saying that all good things come to an end has never rung truer as they do now. Meg Kassel has an extraordinary way of encapsulating her readers with her vivid worldbuilding and beautiful characters.

Essie and Dresden's story jumped right out of the pages and captured my attention right from the start. I even attempted to guess at specific outcomes, but the truth was so much better than what I'd imagined. I loved the new characters, and the appearance of characters from Black Bird of the Gallows wraps this into the perfect gift. Beekeepers, harbingers of death, the strawman, evil, and romance exist within the pages of this superbly written book. It surpassed all of my wildest expectations and I look forward to what comes next.
