The Monster’s Lover by Samantha MacLeod
4 out of 5 stars
The Monster’s Lover in the first book in the The Fenris Series written by Ms. MacLeod and is the first book that I have read by this author. This story is about hardship, sacrifices, and love. The story started out slow but once you got into it, it was great. The characters are well written and there is a depth to Sol that wanted me to keep reading. The description of the background was vibrant and colorful.
Sol Eriksen’s family has fallen on hard times since her father’s death. Her mother cannot provide her annual quota of purple oak so she trades Sol in payment to the cruel King Nøkkyn for one year in his harem.
After running from some of the locals, she is at the river when she meets a handsome man, Fenris, who claims to be the dangerous beast that roams the Ironwood. She thinks he is playing games with her because this is the name of the mythical beast she heard about as a child. So is he a madman or a demon? She knows she shouldn’t listen to him but she is running out of options and time.
Can Sol trust Fenris? Will Fenris let Sol down? Will he be able to save her from the cruel king? Read the story to find out…
This book ends in a cliffhanger and I recommend this book….
