Along the breathtaking and unforgiving coast of Snæland, Ásta’s ancestral farm is plagued with bad luck. The kinless maiden’s turf walls continue to be found damaged, and there aren’t enough farmhands to maintain the property. Claw marks in the dirt revive old memories of the wolf attack that left her scarred, and she begins to fear the whispers are true—that Fenrir, son of Loki and king of the wolves, has come to claim her and her land.
Torin often leaves his uncle’s farm in the southern hills to track and ensnare valuable gyrfalcons. His secret ability to turn into the birds he trains means his falconry skills are unparalleled, earning him precious silver and gold. If the ghosts of his past didn’t haunt him daily, pushing him to numb his senses with drink, Torin might have married by now—as his uncle often reminds him. He knows the time has finally come to find a wife and settle down.
During the Althing, the gathering of the year, Ásta’s ability to maintain her property comes into question while Torin wonders if a woman in jeopardy of losing her farm is really worth the trouble.

Scars grabbed my attention from the start with what was going on at Ásta's farm. The situation is well described and left me wondering who is this wolf and will he come back.
The rumors about the wolf attacks did not make things easier for Ásta. Ásta's bad luck progresses as the story goes on. I frequently worried what could happen to Ásta and her farm. She is a strong character who doesn't back away from responsibilities.
I really liked Torin's character. Although he has his flaws with running from his past, he's patient and caring towards Ásta. Even when Ásta acts outside of the social norm, Torin doesn't hold it against her. He's determined to help protect the farm and Ásta from the wolf.
There is much that Ásta and Torin must do to protect their land from those threatening to take their land and the wolf that destroys their property.
