    A great first in a series

    Don’t ask me why but while reading this first in a saga, a series I read two decades ago popped up in my mind, the Earth’s Children by Jean M. Auel. It has nothing in common except for the encounter of two different worlds and the journey of the main characters to discover who they really are and what threats await them at every turn. In all, it was a tale of epic proportions, with all the elements to keep you on edge. Mrs Leigh Ann Edwards is a new-author-to-me, what a talent she has to narrate such a tremendous legend. Torunn is a force to be recognized, why she is named The Strong. She is so determined in her quest, she sometime runs straight in the traps set for her or awaiting for her. But despite her fiery temper, she is also tender-hearted. She is sure very focused on her pursuit but she is not the sort to turn her back to those needing her help. She has an innocence in her which enlightens this story, so bad events wounded the people she meets during her journey that her simple view of life is also quite refreshing. She makes mistakes but won’t settle for half-hearted measures, she wants all or nothing as for her commitment to Brandr. Brandr is one of those scarred soul, he had lost so much, but he is still the one taking care of the others. He is the one who will bring back a startling fallen from the nest. He is a caretaker, always there to assist those in need. Even if at time, to avoid the pain brought by loosing his loved ones, he decided for a solitary life. Torunn’s intrusion in his well ordained life shattered his illusions that he was safe living all by himself. She introduced new hopes while reawakening old wounds. So which path will he choose, cautious but desolate or full of hurdles but fulfilling with the woman he cares for. The side protagonists are aplenty, each with moving background, some with scars so deep it nearly destroyed them but also hope for a better future for them. The storyline plot ends on a cliffhanger but the main couple get their happy for now end, so I suppose the next book in this series will be about the next couple Mikkel and Brenna as the tittle lets it imply. I was granted through Netgalley by the publisher Tule Publishing an advance copy, I also purchased my own. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.

    New Series, Three Sisters

    It has been over a year since Leigh Ann Edwards’ last series ended so I was delighted to see The Norse Protector, the first in a new series. This time Ms. Edwards has taken on Viking mythology. The prologue and first few chapters set the stage for what has led up to Torunn, the strong coming to the Viking world. The world building in this new series is extremely well-done as is the vivid description of the land in which she arrives. The separation of the sisters is a main plot of the story along with a subplot. Because of the world building and introduction of the quest this book feels long. The Norse Protector is a fantasy romance in a historical setting. That is the way the last series was done. It is also character driven as Torunn goes on her quest. Then add one reluctant hero, Brandr, who is battle weary and life scarred. Together they have quite a journey facing many calamities along the way. The plight of women in these times is also part of the story. I say this because it could be a trigger for some. Still life was harsh then and sadly is still that way today for many of the world’s women. One aspect I really liked is that the Torunn and Brandr story is complete by the conclusion. There is a cliffhanger but it is with the overall theme. This leads the way for the next sister to receive her story. Hope it will be soon.
