Some scars are more than skin deep.

After killing his sadistic brother, Brand inherits the responsibility for his brother's brood.  Now, he must convince the brood that their barbaric way of life belongs in the past and demand change in order to secure their future.

Crushed by the death of his mate, Gunni believes it's only a matter of time before he succumbs to the loneliness that plagues his life.  He follows Brand out of loyalty, but he secretly craves the peace that death will bring - until he is confronted with the most infuriating human he's ever met.

Leo is a throwback who has never quite fit in with human society.  Drawn into the savage world of the werewolves, not entirely against his will, he discovers that the Broods of Fenrir don't fear much ... except him.

These three conflicting personalities unite in pursuit of an unscrupulous trapper who has taken a member of Brand's brood captive.  They must track him down before he uncovers what they are the their secret is revealed.

Warning:  While this book contains some m/m sexual situations, don't be afraid of it - or you'll miss out on an amazing story.

Marked by Odin brings most of the lead characters from book 1, Broods of Fenrir, back to help Brand claim his new inheritance.  Focus moves to Gunni and his utter devastation from losing his mate.  Gunni has refused to change out of wolf form for a long time and Brand is worried that they may lose him forever.  When Gunni finds himself in quite an embarrassing predicament (I was laughing so hard) he changes his tune and returns to human form - only to have his life turned upside down.

Brand's new brood is a mess - and that's putting it nicely. While he has his hands full trying to change their ways Gunni develops a relationship with a strange man they rescue from a barn cellar.  But this isn't just any man and Gunni finds him irresistible - which is very taboo in brood society.

A very sweet love story between two people that care very much not only about each other, but everyone that touches their lives.  A huge surprise waits for you at the end - I finished the book with quite the jaw-drop when I discovered exactly what "Marked by Odin" means.
