What would you do to find—and keep—your perfect soul mate?
In an arctic world of magic and monsters, three powerful women face their deepest fears…and find their truest loves.
The tribes are facing the fiercest battle in their history, and the last thing the chieftain's daughter wants to do is recruit warriors from a village rumored to be cursed with cowardice. But when she meets the muscular blacksmith, Otuku, all of her preconceptions are shattered. Can Inaluk's love for this man allow her to embrace her shaman powers and save her people?
Shaman Za'lla has a vision that compels her to make a dangerous journey to find a sister she can't even remember. When the chieftain's son helps her, she realizes the man she's only admired from afar is enamored with her. As she faces the memories of a traumatic childhood, will the wall of ice around her heart melt so she can accept his love?
Young Shaman Kalaka has been obsessed with gaining the affection of the artistic and handsome Alloc. Then a stranger comes to her village, and she must rely on this mysterious man, Manuk, to help save Alloc from certain death. After she travels to the spirit world and understands the truth about these two men, Kalaka must decide which one to choose before she loses her perfect soul mate forever.

SHAMAN'S SEDUCTION is a delightful collection of three short stories, all set in the world but at different times. We start off with Inaluck, who has worked hard to earn the respect of her father's warriors, and her place as Chieftain's Daughter. When The Great Cold comes, Inaluck is sent to the outlying villages for reinforcements. Going to one of them, with a reputation of being cowards, she finds more than she bargains for, and takes her first step to becoming a Shaman. Then we meet Za'lla, who dreams of a sister she never knew, which leads her on her big adventure, finding love on the way. Lastly, we have Kalaka, an apprentice Shaman who needs to learn more than the basics, and will help to figure out who she is in the process.
These are quick reads, but all of them without any editing or grammatical errors. There was enough world-building that it is all clear, without taking over the essence of the stories. If I had one criticism, it would be that I felt a bit lost with the two following stories. I had no idea if they were after Inaluck, or before. That is only a small thing though, and probably wouldn't bother the majority of people!
A thoroughly enjoyable read, divided into three bite-size chunks, which make this perfect for a coffee break book. Absolutely recommended by me.
