Once the belle of her village, life took a dark turn for Adelaide upon her parent’s death. Plagued by lingering grief, there was not a soul who didn’t turn their back on her. They called her angry and spiteful… Hell, they called her a monster.
One fateful day Adelaide finds herself alone, lingering on the edge of The Perished Woods–a cursed and evil place. Without warning, an orc army attacks.
Her village ablaze, Adelaide races into the Perished Woods, seeking refuge in a place of nightmares. With orcs at her heels, she’s desperate to escape. But when the young woman crosses an aging stone bridge in the middle of the cursed forest she’s met with an even more fearsome enemy. A troll… one who is determined to save her.
I’ve been on an RH / Menage kick for about 2 years now, so going back to the M/F romances seems odd at this point, but this book didn’t disappoint.
The Perished Woods, I’m sad that there are only 2 books in this series. I stayed up reading both back to back and was still reading well past the time I normally wake up for work…
Much like villains, I think monsters just need a hug and a blowjob in life. Our main female character is emotionally damaged due to a recent trauma in her life and then has to run for her life when Orcs attach her village.
And everyone knows, there’s a toll when you step foot on a bridge guarded by a troll. Such a lonely job for a troll. I loved Brom, he was devious as he was sweet.
I really enjoyed this book.
