Selah's journey starts in England where she meets her first suitor, but it's her guard she's attracted to: Bear. However, Bear has his own secrets that break Selah's heart when they come to light. Next, she's taken to Lysefjord, Norge. Here, we meet Torden who is strong and honest. As the days pass, Selah finds herself growing closer to him, but is afraid to be hurt again. However, something is stirring with Lang and his crew and expose secrets that will change everything.
Rather than a retelling, THE BEHOLDER weaves together all kinds of different myths and brings us more than a simple romance story. I like how no matter the beautiful places she sees, she doesn't forget her father back home. Instead, it makes her stronger and more resilient. She is a little naive, but I love watching her grow. I'm excited for the next one to see how everything plays out!
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of mythology, fairytales, lies, betrayal, romance, and taking a peek into different ways of life.
