Wren by Rachel Rossano Book Review
A bounty hunter meets a denounced nobleman.
In her world, Wren Romany is as unconventional as they come. Born to a large, devout family and then forced out to fend on her own, she earns her living as a bounty hunter. As her second winter alone looms, she decides to stay in one place for the season. Seeking shelter, she offers her hunting skills in exchange.
Tourth Mynth, the master of the ruined fortress in the valley, needs help. His small household faces a hard winter. As son of a disenfranchised noble, he has plenty of space beneath his roof, but not much to eat. Wren’s offer seems a good fit.
Wren soon learns the residents of Iselyn need more than simply meat on their table. The valley’s residents squirm beneath a harsh master. Unsolved murder and betrayal lurk in the Mynths’ not so distant past. And Tourth’s battle with his emotional scars from the recent civil war will determine the fate of the whole valley.
I was literally hooked from the first chapter of this book! At no time during the book did the pace lag or did I feel like I needed to take a break or put it down. In fact, just the opposite was true! I didn't want to put it down and read it continuously! Wren is a fast-paced action-packed novel full of intriguing characters and a great story-line! I loved Wren and she became real to me; an amazing woman with no fear of being out of the ordinary! This novel comes full circle and answered almost every question that I had during the book! That is amazing itself since normally I am always left with many questions. I promise that if you just give Wren a try, you will be hooked and won't put it down until you are finished! I am hopeful that this is a start to a new series, hint hint! Great cover, great story, great characters, great writing!!!
