Vali and Deltinica loved each other and
the family that had grown from their love over the
centuries. Life was not perfect, especially since their
offspring and future generations shared the same curse that
Vali suffered. They were only in their human form for three
days and nights in a month. The rest of the month, their
wolf took control.
At Deltinicaís urging, Vali goes to
Odin to plea for a cure for his family. He makes a bargain,
but only for a name. He would send one of his children as a
champion to a sorcerer who might be able to find, if not a
cure, a way for them to live easier with their wolf. Morna
was sent to help guide the champion to the sorcerer.
Vulf was chosen to be champion, but he
didnít believe in their quest. The three days he was human,
Vulf felt awkward. Being with Morna, Vulf found himself
drawn to her, but there was no way he would have a mate who
was forced to live her life as his mother had.
Morna was both afraid and attracted to
Vulf. She knew that he was a killer, but whether in wolf or
human form, she inexplicably felt safe with him. Still, to
be with Vulf, Morna would have to choose to give up much
more than he knew.
Origins: A Spirit United
continues L. Shannonís history of her various series
within The Valafrn. Although it has a romance, the focus is
to learn more of what created them. This book follows
Valiís Curse, but stands alone. However, having
read Valiís Curse, and now A Spirit
United, I feel that there needs to be closure in a
following book. I enjoy this series and learning the
background to L Shannonís world.
