Avelynn: The Edge of Faith, a stand-alone Viking Romance from author Marissa Campbell. It's the year 871. Charges of treason, murder, and witchcraft follow Avelynn into exile as she flees England with Alrik. Arriving in Wales, they find refuge among Alrik's friends in the Welsh nobility. Cast out by his half-brothers, Alrik seeks to regain his honor and earn favor with the gods. When war threatens, Alrik embraces gold and the opportunity for his crew to become mercenaries, aiding the Southern Welsh kings in their fight against Rhodri the Great. Desperate to return home, Avelynn seeks to find a way to prove her innocence, but she is pitted against Alrik as their desires for the future clash. With battle looming, Avelynn's faith in their relationship is further tested through a bitter struggle with Marared, a jealous lover from Alrik's past. Marared's threats turn deadly, and Avelynn runs afoul of magic and sorcery, causing her to question her beliefs and role as priestess. When Avelynn and Alrik are betrayed, Avelynn is captured and Alrik is charged with regicide. The two become separated, a chasm of greed, deceit, and ambition driving them apart. In an act of harrowing faith, Avelynn will stop at nothing to find her way back to Alrik and break them both free from Wales's bloodthirsty grasp. AVELYNN: THE EDGE OF FAITH is a stand-alone novel and #2 in the Avelynn series.

My Thoughts

This second book in the series takes Avelynn and Alrik flees England running for their lives. Avelynn is being sought and charged for being a witch, treason, and murder. They go to Wales for refuge. Alrik feels obligated to help his friends in their war against Rhodri the Great. Both Avelyn and Alrik have something to prove, Avelyn hopes to be able to return to England and defend herself against the charges and Alrik wants to regain his honor and hopefully appease the gods. 

This story is one that takes the reader back to a dangerous time, where at any moment a woman could and would be charged with witchcraft, whether she is or not. A time that is fraught with danger but this story is also about redemption, love, and honor. Even though Avelynn and Alrik are separated by jealousy from another woman and by greed, will their love be enough to bring them back together? To find out you have to read this wonderful series! Bringing a medieval era, superstitions, and warring factions together in one story! 

I received a copy of this book for review.
