This complete series follows the progression of the relationship between Sol and Fenris. Based on Norse myth, the characters grabbed my attention immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed reading each book. And to find them now in this box set – absolutely recommend getting the whole series. It is a must read. Excellent work by MacLeod – loved it!
The Complete Fenris series by Samantha MacLeod is a boxed set containing all five books in the series as well as the bonus short story. Such a great deal- six books for the price of one, and there’s no waiting between books! That’s a real win-win situation.
This is a wonderfully original fantasy series: with romance, paranormal elements, magic, action, suspense, drama, adventure, steamy & erotic details, sexy scenes, ménage, prophecy, rich & vivid world-building- and all based on the Norse Myth of Fenrir, the monstrous wolf, who is also Loki’s son.
I Have really enjoyed exploring all the books in this series as I can always count on Ms. MacLeod to deliver a fantastic, complex, and well developed story. It is a captivating read right from the very first page of Book #1, right through till the end of the final book. Ms. MacLeod is a talented storyteller whose unique take on Norse mythology made for a few hours of spellbinding reading.
All the books in the series are on the shorter side, but the contents are anything but lacking- with a lot happening in a small space. But as usual Ms. MacLeod choreographs the whole series superbly. Weaving twists, surprises and unexpected developments that had me on the edge of my seat. Most of the books end on a bit of a cliff-hanger, and then the next book picks up where it left off. So, this is another bonus for buying the box-set, as you can begin on the first book and follow the story right through to the end, and not miss a thing.
The series contains:
-The Monster’s Lover (Book #1)
-The Monster’s Wife (Book #2)
-The Monster and His Prisoner (Book #3)
-The Monster Chained (Book #4)
-The Monster Freed (Book #5)
-Tempting Fenris Wolf (Bonus Short Story)
I highly recommend this series to all fantasy, paranormal, and Mythology lovers- it’s well worth the read!
Thank you, Ms. MacLeod!

I have loved this series from the first book. It is a romance fairytale that will keep you fast reading through each book. Each book builds on the other to create a great Norse folklore fairytale adventure. The characters are strong and support each other and make the story come alive. I loved watching Fenris and Sol’s relationship grow through each book. Their story is one of trust, it is dark, sexy, and magical, what more could you ask for in a story. This is a must read!
The Complete Fenris Series

5 out of 5 stars
I truly enjoyed reading The Complete Fenris Series by Samantha MacLeod. It is a series that pulled me in from the very beginning and I found myself getting lost in its pages. I found myself staying up late into the night as I just had to read one more chapter. Each story takes you on a journey that I found entertaining and intriguing. I loved reading about the characters of Sol and Fenris. These are two characters that fall in love with each other. Fenris would do anything to keep Sol safe and protected. These books include action, danger, and romance. I love the mythology included in the stories. I couldn’t help but care for Sol and Fenris with each chapter that I read. The books have romantic scenes that make the temperature in the room rise. I also enjoyed reading about the additional characters that are introduced and interact with Sol and Fenris. There are those who are helpful to the couple and then there are those whose motives I questioned and wondered what their true agenda is. This is a series that I would highly recommend reading.

Born and raised in Colorado, Samantha MacLeod has lived in every time zone in the
US. She has a bachelor’s degree from Colby College and an M.A. from the University of
Chicago. Despite this, she has yet to acquire a real job.
Samantha lives with her husband and two small children in the woods of southern
Maine. When she’s not shoveling snow or writing steamy sex scenes, Samantha can be
found teaching college composition and philosophy to undergraduates who have no
idea she leads a double life as an erotica author.
The Monster’s lover (The Fenris series book one) is a fantasy romance & wow this was a firecracker of a book. A world away from the sort of book I normally read, this fantasy novel really lit a fire in me and I will definitely be delving into this genre again. With descriptive writing and imaginative characterisation, this will appeal to anyone who enjoys historical or legendary fantasy.
Sol is the only daughter in an impoverished family and finds herself promised to evil King Nøkkyn. While wandering in the woods one day she stumbles across a handsome stranger who she mistakes for a Demon. Fenris will become her lover and later her protector in this fascinating fantasy romance.
As well as the plentiful love scenes, I liked the reference to Norse legends like Thor, Odin, Askgard whose names are now familiar to fans of Marvel films like myself. Overall a fun romp in the forest.
This is the first book in the Fenris series and is an interesting fast paced read.
When Sol’s father dies in a logging accident in the woods, her family is left with HUGE financial troubles. With no way of meeting the king’s lumber quota, Sol is offered to the king as payment for the family’s debt.
With only weeks left of freedom, Sol tries to make the best of her time left and helps around her family’s land as best as she can. In the woods not too far from her house she meets a mystery man called Fenris, who she is instantly enamored with. She is promised to the king, but how can she agree to go with him when she can’t get Fenris out of her mind.
This story was a tough one for me. I had trouble connecting to the characters and the instant catch fire love the MC’s had was hard for me to get behind…. BUT the author has a really great writing style and managed to get a whole lot of detail into a relatively short story. I am looking forward to seeing how the author continues this story and seeing where Sol and Fenris end up.
I would recommend this to a friend.
The Monster’s Lover (The Fenris Series Book 1)
By Samantha MacLeod
This was a short read full of wonderful characters and detailed world building. I loved how this story pulled me into a world of mythology and steamy romance. I got invested in Sol right away and I wanted her to find happiness after all of the hardships that she keeps going through. Fenris was one hot character that I enjoyed reading about. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat and completely entertained. The author did an excellent job bringing me into this magical world. I highly recommend this book.
Sol’s father was killed during the course of his work and now the rest of her family has nothing to offer the king as payment for their land……except her. King Nøkkyn has a harem and no one really hears good things about it.
When he comes to inspect Sol to see if she’s good enough to be payment, Sol can immediately tell that he is cruel. She wants no part of him or his harem but without her as payment, her family will not survive the winter.
She escapes into the woods and comes across a strange man who is so unbelievably beautiful, she can only assume he is a demon. Fenris seems to take a liking to her but with Sol only has a short amount of time before the king comes to take her away.
I love almost everything to do with Norse mythology and this immediately caught my interest. I’ve already suggested it to several friends and will be reading the second book. The world building is fantastic and I need more
The Monster’s Lover (The Fenris Series Book One) By Samantha Macleod
I was in supernatural heaven. I really love books with Nordic legends. This book was quite a refreshing read. I like how the author was able to bring the characters to life. The pages just melted one right into the other and I couldn’t put this book down.
I felt that the pull between Sol and Fenris was indeed magical. I really felt myself going through the emotions with Sol. I found myself at the edge of my seat to find out what would happen to Sol. The fact that her family had such a hard choice they made. I found my heart in my throat till the very last page. I will certainly be reading more from this author and this series.
