Book Description

Emma's life has been hell since she moved from sunny California to a remote Alaskan town. Abandoned by her father and living with the guilt of causing her mother's death, she makes a desperate dash for freedom from her abusive stepfather. But when her car skids off the icy road, her planned escape leads to further captivity in a world beyond her imagining.Dragged across the tundra by an evil mountain man and his enormous black wolf, she learns that love can be found in the most unexpected places. Amarok, as she's nicknamed the wolf, is a young man from the gold-rush era enslaved by an ancient shaman. Emma's gentle touch and kind heart win his love and devotion. When a vicious madman--trapped in bear form by the same Shaman--attacks the travelers and injures Amarok, Emma must find the strength to face her fears and free the wolf she's come to love. But that means she must face down the evil shaman, a Siberian mammoth hunter from the ice age, and he has no intention of giving up his power to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whole New Angle on Shape Shifting November 20, 2012
Format:Paperback
AMAROK by Angela J. Townsend is another wonderful paranormal romance from Spencer Hill Press. I really enjoyed the world building - Angela Townsend did a terrific job making me feel the cold and dampness of Alaska, as well as its vastness and isolation. And her use of legends from both the Old World and the New World gave AMAROK a delightful twist to the same old werewolf legend. (And I learned what Amarok means!)

While I had a little trouble getting into the character of Emma, I really liked the other protagonist, Amarok. And I really, really enjoyed Jock. For a secondary character, he was actually more interesting than the others because of the mix of good guy and oops-I-screwed-up. I wanted more scenes of him and Amarok.

For readers who enjoy a fresh twist on paranormal romances, this is a book for you! And here's hoping there will be a sequel.
Five Stars: Highly recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Fable January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this story - finally a YA book where the female MC never does anything stupid and the male MC doesn't do anything to betray her - which seems to be the formula in these books.

It's a great supernatural tale that weaves (what I believe to be) Native legends with modern twists. I thought Emma was awesome - she never gives up - she fights one of the villains who is probably two feet taller than her. She is tough. Amarok is an awesome wolf/man - you get his story mostly through his thoughts. Ms. Townsend is able to convey his character with very few words. The secondaries are quite good also.

Despite what another reviewer said, there is an unequivocal happy ending. Spring is not that far off (read the book and see).

We need a sequel, and Tok needs an iPhone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Letters Inside Out October 31, 2012
Format:Paperback
From the synopsis, I saw a lot of similarities between Amarok and, one of my favorite books, Tiger's Curse. The whole concept of a person locked into the body of an animal, I suppose. That alone was enough to make me have to read Amarok. Once I got to reading the book, I realized that Townsend had crafted a concept that was intriguing and magical. Much in the same way, but with a completely different feel. It was refreshing and very entertaining.

The book opens with a super intense moment with Emma trying to escape from her abusive situation. Emma has been through a lot and needs to get away for her own safety. You learn just enough early on that you can't help but feel for her and as the book goes on the intensity of her situation increases. This girl goes from one bad situation to another when she's kidnapped by a mountain man with a pet wolf.

Amarok follows Emma as she tries to survive the cold and this cruel man who has taken her hostage. I really enjoyed Townsend's usage of a shaman and a curse. I also loved how she described Alaska and captured the isolation in this cold, unforgiving environment. My only real complaint was that with the short length of the book it really hampered the development of the story and the characters for me. While things were explained, I'm a reader that likes more in depth explanations of mythology and concepts.

Townsend's debut book is fascinating and definitely one to check out if you enjoy books dealing in different types of mythology.

I received Amarok from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amarok January 31, 2013
Format:Paperback
the story of Amarok was born in the author's mind and then struggle begins. How does one put on paper what is so clearly seen inside the gray matter. Angela Townsend has done a beautiful job of bringing her story to life. Plot of the story has already been discussed by readers, so what I want to impart is the caring this author has taken to bring to her readers the best finished version of what developed in her mind. She succeeded well. Good job, Angela Townsend. I loved your book.
