    Keeper of the Bees has all the makings of a popular YA modern fairy tale—cursed protagonists, magical villains, and a romance for the ages. It has even been described as a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, though personally I find that comparison to be a bit of a stretch, and, to be honest, a disservice to the world of this book, considering how unique it is.

    The story is told from the perspective of two teens: one who h

    First of all, how stunning is that cover?! I didn’t read Black Bird of the Gallows -yet. Still, I couldn’t resist requesting Keeper of the Bees on just the cover art alone. I’m not usually someone in love with watercolor, but in this case it resonates with me. There’s a dreamy quality about the cover that matches the horror of Dresden and the delusions of Essie. I love it so much.

    Now, onto the story itself. I wasn’t really sure what I got myself into when I started reading. Keeper of the Bees ha

    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. When he meets Essie, a 17-year-old girl who suffers from debilitating delusions and hallucinations. His bees want to

    That was... wow. I don't even know where to begin to describe this book.

    It was so different, unlike anything I've ever read.

    A Young Adult paranormal romance revolving around a faceless, cursed boy whose body contains a bee hive, who is forever condemned to feed off people's misery, the evil his bees' stings draw out of them. And a girl who's been suffering from hallucinations for years, who's been shunned by the people who should've protected her, who can't tell reality from fantasy anymore.

    I need all of the stars for this one but it feels more appropriate to say it like this: 💛🐝🖤🐝💛

    I was initially denied early access to this book and I completely understood why. This is the type of book I’m supposed to want to avoid. The love between this girl and (sort of) boy is insta and as sweet as honey (sorry, I had to go there) so it makes perfect sense that a romantiphobe should steer clear. So why did I beg for it? Because I should have wanted to stay far, far away from its companion, Bla

    Review:

    *I received an ecopy of this book via YA Bound Book Tours. This has not influenced my review.*

    It was actually the premise for this book that got me interested in this series. Supernatural beings with faces that constantly change to that of their many victims and chests full of bees that cause psychosis? Now that is different, and totally intriguing.

    Upon reading the first book, I definitely thought the beekeepers were interesting, and getting the POV of one this time made it even
