Scars by Natasha S. BrownTitle: Scars
Pages: 249

Along the breathtaking and unforgiving coast of Snæland, Ásta’s ancestral farm is plagued with bad luck. The kinless maiden’s turf walls continue to be found damaged, and there aren’t enough farmhands to maintain the property. Claw marks in the dirt revive old memories of the wolf attack that left her scarred, and she begins to fear the whispers are true—that Fenrir, son of Loki and king of the wolves, has come to claim her and her land.

Torin often leaves his uncle’s farm in the southern hills to track and ensnare valuable gyrfalcons. His secret ability to turn into the birds he trains means his falconry skills are unparalleled, earning him precious silver and gold. If the ghosts of his past didn’t haunt him daily, pushing him to numb his senses with drink, Torin might have married by now—as his uncle often reminds him. He knows the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down.

During the Althing, the gathering of the year, Ásta’s ability to maintain her property comes into question while Torin wonders if a woman in jeopardy of losing her farm is really worth the trouble.

Leels Loves Books Book Reviews

I read most of this book in one night. In one sitting. Literally, I read all but 2 chapters.

I can’t pin point what I loved about this book – I really have no clue – but I got sucked in and could not put it down. I loved it. LOVED it.

It has a mythological feel with slight shapeshifting with a touch of mystery and hint of romance.

Asta has been haunted by bad luck that will not go away. She is on the verge of losing her farm – her family farm that she is in charge of – when her luck looks like it just might change. Except that part where she is haunted by bad luck.

I think I was aware of the mystery from the beginning and wanted to see if I was correct. The romance aspect was very shaky and I wasn’t sure what was going to happen and wanted to follow that through. (I did not feel the content was “mature”, but to each their own.)

This was a very easy read that pulls you in and doesn’t let go until it’s over!

About the author
Natasha was born in Nevada City, California. Being an only child, she resorted to using her imagination while exploring the forest surrounding her home (a nasty habit she hasn’t been able to break). Her natural interest in fantasy ignited when her parents read The Hobbit to her as a youth, and from then on anything seemed possible. Once awarded with a Hershey’s bar ‘the size of a Buick’ in her high school English class for creative writing, her passion and interest in literature has never dimmed.

She now lives in Littleton, Colorado, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.
