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. 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. But the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down.
If they are to overcome their problems, they must do so together, or the scars from their past might destroy them both. TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
Scars: Time of Myths is part of the Shapeshifter Sagas; however, it’s the first I’ve read. It’s also the first of Natasha Brown’s book I’ve read. This book is different from any shapeshifter book I’ve read. Its setting is unique, and the characters are living in another era. Once finished, I enjoyed the book; but not until I was over halfway through it. It was slow in the beginning, and I found myself confused throughout the book. I’m not sure if there wasn’t a sufficient amount of backstory of if there is another book I should have read first. I’ve never had this unsure feeling about a book before. Because of this, I have to give it 2 Boundless Stars “It was ok. It could have been better.” I did like it; it just took a LONG time to get there.
