In this novel the heroine Erica has a few tough decision to be made. Living in the home of Mother Selma, who takes care of orphaned children, Erica finds a friend in a young boy Finn. As the years go by, Erica finds herself having strong feelings for childhood friend.
As the story progresses Erica is placed in a position where she must choose...the man she loves or the man who loves her. Strange twists of events takes our heroine and her childhood friend in directions they couldn't have imagined. A split moment decision causes the small town to stand against Erica, only to be save by the man who wants to marry her. Tensions rise and Finn finally approaches Erica with words she longed to hear...too late? Maybe.
The town is forced to fight for their lives against a troll, a witch and evil spells. Will Erica be able to fight off the evil that surrounds the town?
I found this book very captivating. The story was slow going at first, and gradually gained momentum after the halfway point. I found the characters very likable although the plot was very predicable for the most part. I figured out where the story was going just as it got interesting. Even knowing where the story was going, the author was able to maintain my interest as a reader. I do feel as thought the editing could have been much better. The run on sentences were annoying at times, but you learn to live with it. If you ask me if I'd read any of Ronnell D. Porter's other novels...I would have to say, as a storyteller he does a wonderful job. I'm giving this 4 stars because of the editing. I know editing shouldn't take away from the rating, but we have to face facts...some people rely on honest opinions. I am looking forward to reading more of this authors work in the future.
The romance between the two main characters was believable and I quickly found myself looking forward to their interaction throughout the story.
The plot description is fairly accurate - the book is about one girl's (Erika's) journey of self-discovery in the shadow of the ruling family. It explores how her life is intertwined with theirs while giving the reader glimpses of the world of Fae, witches, and otherworldly beings that coexist with the humans. I also particularly appreciated that Erika is clearly a girl with a spine.
I am looking forward to the next installment of this series.
I just can't live with the mixed up paragraphs and the missing words and sentences. PLEASE take the time to go through this book on a Kindle Reviewer and fix the errors! I had probably ten pages where I couldn't make heads or tails out of what was happening because of the errors!
The story was amazing, but the book and its delivery was a little slow or choppy for me in the middle. It started off with a great hook, but once the plot started to thicken, it all seemed like, "You'll be asked out by him. Yes, now you will run. Now go do this. Okay, now that. Then this will happen." Just stuff like that. The flow wasn't very good for me, and it didn't really improve in the end. THE END THOUGH. UGHHH <3
The ending totally blows all the imperfections away for me, but I can't overlook it for the sake of rating. The flow isn't very good through most of the book for me, and if it'd been smoother, this would be a definite 5 Stars. But back to the ending... I can't tell you without giving it away and spoiling it for you, but I've got to say - there was something about it that resonated with me. Depressed me, yes, but it was still beautiful in the most sharpest sense of reality. Does that make sense?
If you like villages and curses, witches and trolls, you'll love this. My friend read it with me and she said it was 'kind of depressing' and it's true, but the story's still really good. It was free when I got it, and it might be still on Amazon if you go and look for yourself.
Happy Reading :)

This story is largely based on Norse myth and has a fairy tale feel to it. The build up certainly fleshes out the characters but then the ending seems rushed and disjointed. Read morePublished on May 7, 2014 by suz
