Book review: Magnar (The Wolves of Clan Sutherland Book 1) by Mary Morgan

Amazon buy link: https://www.amazon.com/Magnar-Wolves-Clan-Sutherland-Book-ebook/dp/B08DCDYT4S/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=magnar&qid=1607478998&sr=8-2

An enjoyable mix of history, magic, and steamy romance.

There was a lot I liked about this book. I loved the two main characters. I liked that Magnar wasn't perfect and struggled with his baser side, his wolf. I really liked that Elspeth was strong and wasn't a damsel in distress. From the first page, I was drawn into the story by the author's skillful way of capturing the historical setting. I loved the mix of history and magic, though I wouldn't really call this a shifter story. The wolf shifting was part of the tale, but this was more of a story about growing love between two very different people. I did enjoy the interactions between these two character, especially how she challenged him. The passionate love scenes set this romance on fire. Oh my.

What I wanted to see more of was conflict between the two characters. It seemed a little too easy for Elspeth to accept Magnar's heathen beliefs and fall in love with him after their arranged marriage. I guess I just wanted to see her struggle with this a little more. Other than that, this was a near-perfect read. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could. I look forward to more from this author. Highly recommended!

Excerpt snippet #12 Dec 7

His eyes widened. It wasn’t disbelief I saw in his blue-gray depths. It was acceptance.

I let out a relieved sigh. He didn’t think I was crazy. Still, my head was spinning. Time travel? Maybe I was dreaming.

What do we have here?” a male asked from behind us.

I turned in King Roan’s arms.

Another man, one just as handsome as the king, entered, his eyes lighting up. “Who is this dark-skinned beauty?”

I had to bite my lip to make sure I wasn’t stuck in a dream.

The sharp sting burned my eyes.

Queridos dioses. I wasn’t dreaming.
