Book & Author Details:

The Monster’s  by Samantha MacLeod
Published by: Vestal Valley Press
Publication date: January 21st 2019
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Romance

Promised to cruel King Nøkkyn’s harem, Sol Eriksen is out of options, and nearly out of time.

When she meets a distractingly handsome stranger in the Ironwood Forest who claims to be a legendary monster, Sol thinks he must be a madman, or a demon. She knows she shouldn’t listen to him. Or trust him. And she should not, under any circumstances, kiss him again.

As King Nøkkyn’s grip around her tightens, Sol finds her last chance at freedom may lie with her mysterious new lover, the man who calls himself Fenris.


Reading books from this author always takes me a little bit out of my usual wheelhouse – but the strength of the writing and the imagination of the author in delivering these tales always makes it worth my while.

Once again, not a long book, though there is an awful lot packed within the pages.  The author presents a norse fairytale filled with dark moments, told unflinchingly.  But that means that the light is picked out more clearly in juxtaposition.  It just works.

I look forward to reading more in the series.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
