I loved this story! It drew me in and hooked me. I stayed up late reading it. Astrid’s character while starting out thinking she’s a monster and unsure of her past, comes to love and appreciate herself. In her quest to save the survivors of her village, she learns the truth of her past, and must come to terms with it and make the choice of who she wants to be. She’s strong, courageous, and vulnerable—all the things a good heroine needs to be. I look forward to reading the next story in the series.
