I've really never read anything like this book before. Brutally attacked, Kiera and her nephew are transported to another reality, another Alaska, where Feudal lords--Mages--have enslaved the native population--Shapeshifters--and forced them to fight their wars.

At first, Kiera is so unsure of what to do with herself you wonder how she is going to get herself and her young nephew anywhere--let alone survive in the strange world she finds herself in. But, as the author seamlessly weaves several s

Fortunately, the story line improved because I was almost ready to give up after the first couple of chapters. The whole tattoo thing at the beginning was strange and never fully explained. The tattoo thing was the reason why everything happened and so it should have been explained more.

I do not consider myself a prude when it comes to sex in a novel, but I really hate when gratuitous sex is included. Why would the main character just sleep with the captain on the army? It made no sense. There

In her debut novel, Lauri J. Owen has created an enthralling world of magic and shapeshifters. The remarkable tale, set in Alaska, starts off with introducing us to Kiera, a plus-sized woman with a tenacious personality, and her young orphan nephew, Alex. After an incident with a mysterious curse and a wild dog, Kiera and Alex are transported to a feudal version of Alaska where the noble class of mages has enslaved a population of shapeshifters. Naturally, Kiera is horrified and becomes involved ...more

Lauri Owen has crafted a magnificent tale of romance and political intrigue, tightly interwoven through
the visions of grandeur and depravity that are her alternate Alaska. From the first page one is gripped
by the story as one follows Kiera and Alex, living out a pretty ordinary existence in present day Alaska,
through their shocking initiation into the realm of magic, where they must survive or be destroyed. The
pages of this book turn of their own accord as one devours the images that flow from t
Doris Herrmann
This is a wonderful debut novel by Lauri Owen. Characters are so richly written that this book would be a great study in characterization for any classroom. What I like best is that the main characters are quirky, far from perfect and feel very real. So much time is spent building the characters and the setting that you can't wait to see what happens in the next novel.

Perfect for students who love fantasy, with a bit of romance to keep the non-fantasy fans enthralled.
