I’ve got something special planned for my blog for October.
But before that, let’s get started with a monstrous story to get everyone ready for October and Halloween.
5th Grade and Up
The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard, whose curse has girls sicken and disappear without a trace. Bryre’s inhabitants live in fear, and no one is allowed outside after dark.
But the night is the only time that Kymera can enter this dangerous city, for she must not be seen by humans. Her father says they would not understand her wings, the bolts in her neck, or her spiky tail – they would kill her. They wouldn’t understand that she was created for a purpose: to rescue the girls of Bryre.
Despite her caution, a boy named Ren sees Kym and begins to leave a rose for her every evening. As they become friends, Kym learns that Ren knows about the missing girls, the wizard, and the evil magic that haunts Bryre. And what he knows will change Kym’s life.
This story is Brothers Grimm fairy tales meet Frankenstein’smonster with a much more remarkable creature, in my opinion. Eyes and claws of a cat, wings of a bird, tail of a snake, and bolts of Frankenstein’s monster, Kymera is the perfect hybrid creature. Despite Kymera’s monstrous appearance, inside, she is an innocent soul with a heart of gold and wants to do the right thing. Her picture on the cover is what drew me to this story in the first place. Just look at her. She is so cute.
Obviously, something more sinister is going on in this story, but what exactly is a mystery. So I don’t ruin the story, I won’t go into detail about it.
