it was amazing

I received this book from net galley for an honest review. Thank you!!

This novel was a great read and I could not put this book down!! I enjoyed the plot and the characters. It brings together the believers of the Norse Gods and Christians. Each had different beliefs and had their own petty fights due to those conflicts. This novel also contains romance, action, adventure, trust, and betrayal, and so much more!!
Elfwynn is a bastard born child of a lord, who loves her mother but cannot marry her. She has 2 half-siblings from her father's wife, who hates her and her mother with a passion. However, she cares for people and her brother Wulf adores her despite his mother's hatred.
Rorik of Vargjfell is a master at pillaging and a ladies man. However, he has a troubled past that has shaped him into the man he is and has control over his rages. When the Earl of Redbank burns down and kills 2 of his men, Rorik demands retribution from the earl. He decides he will kidnap one of the earls daughters as ransom.
Elfwynn is captured by Rorik and her father will not pay her ransom. Rorik has other reason for keeping Elfwynn with him. Elfwynn is hurt by her father's rejection of her. However, nothing is as it seems.
Elfwynn is surprised at how well she is treated at Vargjfell, nothing about the stories she has been told. She still plans to return home. She meets many people and they accept her, unlike her own village. Rorik promises to get the ransom from the church and then she will be free. Elfwynn does not give into Rorik, who has never had to work for a woman, but she intrigues him. Elfwynn does want to become on his women. Rorik cares about what happens to her and she causes him to think about his current life style, but he cares more about his reputation as a leader to his warriors and people and his ships. As they spend more time together, feeling between them grow, but Rorik is afraid to let anyone close due to his past. Elfwynn wants to return to her mother and tries to escape but Rorik cannot let her go and does not understand why. He becomes jealous about how other men see Elfwynn. They agree that Elfwynn will weave a sail for his ship as payment. Rorik has an ulterior motive for keeping her, hoping she will want to stay. Feelings become relevant between them, but both are afraid to let their hearts become engaged with the other. Still, nothing is as it seems and truths are revealed when Wulf finds Elfwynn. Will she return home or stay with Rorik? Can Rorik let the woman he loves go? Read this novel and find out!!
