    Black Birds of the Gallows was one of my favorite books from last year! So I couldn't wait to read this since we were going to see the world from the beekeepers view. Those creatures terrified me, so I took a deep breath and dove right in. I happily found myself pulled in and I finishe...

    *I want to thank Entangled Teen and NetGalley for providing me with this copy in exchange for an honest review* First I must mention how beautiful both covers are, they look amazing together, I just love them. Going to the important thing, I ADORE this book, there is something so ...

    Black Birds of the Gallows was one of my favorite books from last year! So I couldn't wait to read this since we were going to see the world from the beekeepers view. Those creatures terrified me, so I took a deep breath and dove right in. I happily found myself pulled in and I finishe...

    Dark, haunting, unique, beautiful, sweet YA paranormal romance. ...

    Keeper of the Bees has one of the more intriguing (and by intriguing I mean, potentially really, really odd) premises of any book synopsis I?d read this year, which in Misty-world basically translates to, ?I need to read this and see.? I needed to know if its oddness would be car...

    Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books* Ahh how I missed Meg Kassel's writing! "Black Bird of Gallows" was a very interesting, scary and emotional read and learning that there was another book tied into this larger world I decided to read it. And I concluded that Dresden's c...

    The tale revolves around a boy who was cursed to murder people with bees that livea inside him for centuries, and a beautiful young girl whose insanity runs in the family. The very instant I read the synopsis of this book, I was intrigued and so I read it. Despite how short it is, ...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/09/23/... 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 Beas...

    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 ...

    Well, I haven't read the first book in this series, so was a little leery of reading this one, but my worries were all for nothing. This is more of a companion novel I guess, so I wasn't missing any knowledge that would keep me from enjoying this one. For me, the story started out a...

    Meg Kassel has another smashing hit on her hands!! This is a companion novel to Black Bird of the Gallows. They can be read separately and not in order and I loved each of these book equally as they very unique in their stories. Keeper of the Bees is a YA fantasy novel about Dres...

    Like a really really really high three crowns??? There was just something so captivating about this book that I wanted both this three and four crown mix. There were a lot of really good things about this book, and then there were the cheesy things that would pop up and make me stop...

    Black Bird of the Gallows was one of my favorite books of 2017, and I absolutely loved the various mythologies used and the curses involved. The harbingers were so creative and interesting, but the Beekeeper was hands-down my absolutely favorite. Creepy, yet tortured, Rafette the Beeke...

    Keeper of The Bees was a beautiful, sweet story, and I totally fell in love with it. Dresden and Essie were such complicated yet beautiful characters. It was fun to watch the story unfold from both of their perspectives. I especially loved how the author wrote Essie's poi...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I enjoyedBlack Bird of the Gallows, but if I had to choose between the first and the second, I loved the second so much better t...

    I wouldn't have realised that this is the second book in a series if I hadn't added it on Goodreads. However, it is perfectly possible to read this as a stand-alone. Characters from Black Bird of the Gallows make a cameo appearance which might please fans of the first book. I had no i...

    I?m not a big horror fan, but I love the macabre and delightfully creepy. So this book hit all the right notes for me. I didn?t read the first book, but this story is about a different set of characters. So I didn?t have trouble following along. This is a nice YA love story ab...

    ?Keeper of the Bees? is an excellent companion story to 'Black Bird of the Gallows'! I loved the two lead characters, Dresden and Essie, even more than Reece and Angie. Author Meg Kassel skillfully switches narration between Dresden and Essie, and there is so much more to enjoy due...

    I can't believe Kassel is going to try and make us feel sympathy for (and maybe even come to care for) a KEEPER!! But I am so here for it and can't wait to get my hands on this one! ...
