March is a time for renewal. Spring comes, everything is in bloom, making it the perfect time to read a book about young woman coming into her own. Ásta has recently lost her father and brother and is left to run the farm on her own. In this feudal society this is a rare thing and everyone thinks she will fail. Her own neighbor is chomping at the bit to take her family farm from her. With a mythical wolf roaming the hill side destroying her walls it seems as if she is destined to fail. This is one woman whom it seems fate has stacked all the cards against.
Torin too has had his share of misfortunes in life. He too has lost his immediate family and feels that life is conspiring against him.
I really liked seeing the joining of these two unfortunate people. Love may not have brought them together, but like any good Spring time story, love will conquer all!
Along the breathtaking and unforgiving coast of Snæland, Ásta’s ancestral farm is plagued with bad luck. The kinless maiden’s turf walls continue to be found damaged, and there aren’t enough farmhands to maintain the property. Claw marks in the dirt revive old memories of the wolf attack that left her scarred, and she begins to fear the whispers are true—that Fenrir, son of Loki and king of the wolves, has come to claim her and her land.
Torin often leaves his uncle’s farm in the southern hills to track and ensnare valuable gyrfalcons. His secret ability to turn into the birds he trains means his falconry skills are unparalleled, earning him precious silver and gold. If the ghosts of his past didn’t haunt him daily, pushing him to numb his senses with drink, Torin might have married by now—as his uncle often reminds him. He knows the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down.
During the Althing, the gathering of the year, Ásta’s ability to maintain her property comes into question while Torin wonders if a woman in jeopardy of losing her farm is really worth the trouble.

About the author
Natasha was born in Nevada City, California. Being an only child, she resorted to using her imagination while exploring the forest surrounding her home (a nasty habit she hasn’t been able to break). Her natural interest in fantasy ignited when her parents read The Hobbit to her as a youth, and from then on anything seemed possible. Once awarded with a Hershey’s bar ‘the size of a Buick’ in her high school English class for creative writing, her passion and interest in literature has never dimmed.
She now lives in Littleton, Colorado, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.
