The end? THE END?! What do you meant 'The End'? At the end I was ready for some more of the story. I was ready for some fluffy moments between the two and then some family moments later...

I'll add a real review soon lol

3.5 stars

Im always skeptical of historic ff romances just because reality of it can be really harsh and i like the stories to have obatacles that can be overcome to some extent within the course of the book. This book however is not a ff romance. Yes it has some of that but its more of a story about Thora and how she goes from an usual slave to more. Not much really happens to be honest with you and the stuff that does happen is a bit spaced out. It is a historical story with a little sex (of bo

Set in classical Greece, the plot of this novella is fairly straightforward: upper class woman who is Not Like The Other Girls is intrigued by the beauty and defiance of an exotic (in this case, Norse) slave and purchases her in order to tame her and (as we eventually find out) with the goal of some sort of interpersonal relationship.

First, the constant "head hopping" really ruins the flow of a story for me-- one sentence we are in the head of one of the main characters and the very next sentence we jump into some random minor characters head for no reason, then jump back or to someone else completely.
Secondly, I don't like when writers refer characte

I greatly enjoyed the historical aspect of this story and delving into the world's drama kept me wanting to know more. The pace of the story is quick, and the drama, intrigue and action and how each character reacts as the story progresses are well written, and at a few points, I even cheered them on! While this story may not have explicit sex scenes, the romance is emotional and portrayed by the character dynamic as the story progresses. ...more

I loved it!!!

It was so touching! I felt the emotions of every character as if the were my own! I love Thora's spirit and the commonality between and all the other personalities in the story! It's like she bridged everyone!
