Read my full review of this book here:

In 10th century Bavaria, wars are not always fought on the Eastern Marches.
Sometimes, they are fought in homes and bedrooms.

Revena’s life is a battlefield when she becomes part of a land deal.
Her husband, a stranger, is her enemy.
She runs, but she can not hide.
She fights, but she is restrained.
She is attacked from all sides and seeks revenge.

This work of fiction contains scenes of
abuse, violence, sexual assault, and rape.

Ornery Owl's Mini Review
(The following is a duplicate of my review of this book on Amazon)
I received an advance review copy of this book. I was immediately drawn into the story. Revena is a tough young woman living in difficult times. Reviled for her appearance, her innate magical abilities, and for being female, she must keep her wits about her if she is to survive an arranged marriage to a brutal Baron. 

This is indeed not a pretty love story. It is intended for adult audiences only. There are scenes of violence including sexual assault that some readers may find upsetting. However, these situations are depicted in a forthright and realistic manner rather than a lurid or gratuitous fashion. Being misused by men was a reality for women living in the Dark Ages. 

Revena is the kind of determined, gritty heroine often missing from fantasy fiction. I highly recommend this powerful story.
