Top Customer Reviews
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
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.
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.
She doesn't make it.
A bull moose , an iced over highway, an accident waiting to happen.
And it does.
The start of this book is quite frightening. Emma finds herself kidnapped, falling nicely into the hands of a killer.
The chapter POV's alternate between Emma and Tok . Both in their own way are being held captive by Weasel Tail.
Throw in Uncle Jock, who I really liked and Ben and you have a story of survival and rescue.
I liked the whole idea of the evil ice aged Sharman and how he captured his victims and what he did to them.
Tok aka Amarok is a seventeen year old from the gold rush era. He is more wolf than man. I really enjoyed being in Amarok's head and learning of his pain.
Emma is fighting for her life and she doesn't waiver in helping even though she doesn't fully understand, but knows she is Amarok's only hope.
This is the story of a girl who went from fleeing an abusive step father to finding herself captured by an evil mountain man and saving more than her own life.
Two characters who are trying for a way out, an escape from a life they have been forced to endure find themselves and a hope that wasn't there before.
I enjoyed the whole concept of this story, but I would have liked to have learned more and possibly built a stronger connection with these two lead characters. The start of this book was very exciting in a frightening way and it really grabbed you.
