Shattered Steel by Shauna Richmond

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This story is perfect for readers that enjoy Vikings and Game of Thrones type stories and characters! It’s a prequel to the Raghnall series, but you could probably jump in here and not be lost.

I really loved Catherine. She is a sassy, feisty lady that doesn’t take crap from anyone! Reading her story was so much fun, and I’m excited to see how she gets from here to House Raghnall to make this story come full circle! Catherine is rescued after an injury by the Olden clan. They were surprising and full of a variety of personalities, and I enjoyed that the story was told through multiple POVs. I had the chance to get some great insight into other characters!

This plot isn’t quite as gory as previous books have been, but it still had its fair share of adventure and excitement…and some swoon-worthy romance! The Olden clan definitely gets into some trouble, and I easily fell into the story and lost myself in the book!

Overall, I loved this book, and I cannot wait to dive into the next story! The characters were amazing and well-developed, and the story was exciting and fast-paced!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Shattered Steel to readers that like fantasy with lots of adventure, romance, and wonderful characters!

In a world plagued with demons, bandits and shape-shifters, Catherine finds herself straying from her pack as they escape the hunters that stumbled across their camp. Finding herself in Oakwood, the land of the gentry, the brazen peasant finds herself attracting all sorts of attention. Catherine must find a way to survive in the world of the nobles even if that means being auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Her world turns on its head as a chance encounter with a man known as the Highland Reaper turns into a secret love affair. How will this notorious killer react when he finds out what she truly is? Will his unsavoury past come back to bite them both? too many choices, too many expectations and two questions.

How do you tame a wolf?
How can you love a monster?
