Giants of the Frost by Kim Wilkins
From the Publisher
Taking a job on an isolated island in the Sea of Norway, scientist Victoria Scott wants a quiet place to finish her doctoral thesis. But Victoria isn't prepared for the strange shadows outside her cabin window, the rumors of a murderous hag who sucks one's soul during sleep, and the tales of mythic monsters lurking in the forest. More frightening than the island's nightmarish mysteries: to Victoria, everything is hauntingly familiar.
When an enigmatic stranger appears on the island, Victoria's sense of foreboding peaks. For she learns that they are connected by a conflict centuries old--one that can end only with her death.
This is the second Kim Wilkins book that I have read and I loved it. It is quite a bit different from The Autumn Castle though. While Autumn Castle was a darker Urban fantasy, this book was romance with a little supernatural fairy tale thrown in.
I loved the characters and enjoyed the Norse mythology. The ending kind of makes you sigh in relief, exasperation, wonder? But all in all a wonderful love story.
Looking forward to reading more of Kim Wilkins books.
