****4/5 stars Loved itAvelynn by Marisa Mccampbell

The Dark Ages come alive in this gripping romance by a debut author.

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re a historical romantic
  • If you like a darker, more Vikings-esque romance
  • and if you enjoy a strong female in a very anti-female time, this book is for you.

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall
  • 3/5 steaminess


An era often overlooked especially in the historical romance genre, debut author Marissa Campbell weaves a fabulous tale of love, power and war.  Avelynn – the headstrong daughter of a lord – is being forced into a marriage just as Vikings are invading and raiding. Secretly a pagan, Avelynn meets a mysterious Viking who promises to meet her again.  Before reading Avelynn, I never realized that the historical genre was sadly lacking in good romances set in the Dark Ages. The author tells an often gruesome and very real story of love, war and the fight for power. I’m hoping for a sequel (or even better series).
