She would have given anything to be like the other Volsung girls; tall and fair. Her nickname, “Mouse” said it all. She was small and dark-haired, but the name did not tell of the scar on her cheek that seemed to disqualify her as a bride. Nor did it hint she was the best archer in the valley, and the only one not afraid to enter the dread Holberth Forest, haunt of shades ...more

Meet Mouse, but don’t under-estimate her. She is a small, dark-haired Volsung girl with a bow and arrow and she knows how to use it. This little girl it full of strength and courage. She is a heroine that readers will not soon forget.

FRANK ALTOBELLI'S "TRUE HEART" (REVIEW)

This book was wonderful! It had the perfect amount of fantasy and adventure along with a love story that was sweet and unexpected. Mouse, the heroine of the novel is almost sprite-like in her mannerisms and you can tell she has a heart of gold. When she decides to leave her home rather than be given in marriage to a man she does not want or love she realized that the one she does care for has no feelings of the sort for her.

This was a wonderful story, Filled with Adventure, adversity and love. It pulled on all the strings of drama and filled one with the need to turn the page and try to keep up with all that was going on with Mouse and Orlean as well as their friends and enemies. You want to cheer when Mouse finally starts standing up for herself against Bryant the rather selfish and egotistical guy she was in love with and used her to try and only gain more for himself.

You find a fatherly figure in almost all her

I love Mouse and Orlean's story. That being said, there were parts I felt could have been foreshadowed earlier in the story to make the sudden jumps more believable or understandable. It was a lengthy story, though I found myself skipping over certain parts and still following. The strength of the characters and the creativity made the story interesting enough to keep reading until the end. It had suspense, romance, and mystery. All together, and enjoyable read. Happy reading, everyone!

Stayed up to finish and worth it.

The folk saying's made the story worth staying up for. Had to keep reading for the next tidbits of wisdom. Plus cliffhanger chapter ending's for me made this book enjoyable and fun. Please write book 2.
