I was completely captivated by this story on many levels! First, the setting, feel, tone and characters gave me a lasting impression of great fantasy. Gunhild is a bold and reckless troll hunter sent on an impossible mission. Kirabo an unsuspecting traveler; is brought along for the journey and fight for his life, learns a thing or two in the process. These two suddenly meet, and under extreme circumstances, are forced into an improbable interdependency which makes the story much more compelling.
There’s also a good element of suspense, anticipation, and theme that made this read worthwhile. This author has great skill in crafting a story. Highly recommended!
