Wren by Rachel Rossano

A bounty hunter meets a denounced nobleman.

In her world, Wren Romany is as unconventional as they come. Born to a large, devout family and then forced out to fend on her own, she earns her living as a bounty hunter. As her second winter alone looms, she decides to stay in one place for the season. Seeking shelter, she offers her hunting skills in exchange.

Tourth Mynth, the master of the ruined fortress in the valley, needs help. His small household faces a hard winter. As son of a disenfranchised noble, he has plenty of space beneath his roof, but not much to eat. Wren’s offer seems a good fit.

Wren soon learns the residents of Iselyn need more than simply meat on their table. The valley’s residents squirm beneath a harsh master. Unsolved murder and betrayal lurk in the Mynths’ not so distant past. And Tourth’s battle with his emotional scars from the recent civil war will determine the fate of the whole valley.

Tifferz Take-
Wren is an intriguing story of a women bounty hunter with serious skills. She can totally take care of herself and others she cares for. I would want her as my friend.  Wren comes upon Tourth by word of mouth. You see Wren wants a place to settle for the upcoming winter months. That is where Tourth comes in. He is in need of her hunting skills. So, they make a trade hunting and help for room and board. Then we are introduced to  Kat, Svhen, Arthus and Dardon a wonderful supporting cast. Tourth has a past that is haunting him. Wren speaks her mind and that rubs Tourth the wrong way. Now the Enforcer is taxing  everyone and building up his army.  Now, this story had everything danger, murder, broken trust, secrets, treason. Along  with friendship, loyalty, sweet romance and the element of surprise! I was entrapped in what would happen next. One of my favorite parts is Wren is climbing the tree in a dress and after had to get information on what a soldier wanted and Arthus said she couldn’t go because she could not act like a lady.  It just made me laugh as she changed her whole domineer and became a lady before his eyes. Some great dialogue as well in this read. I would recommend you pick it up for yourself.  I sure hope Ms. Rossano writes Adien and Krystalyn’s story. It would be fun to know what one of Wren’s brothers were up to.

JUST FYI- This story contains NO swearing or sexual situations!
