Katla Elínsdóttir has always believed in the old ways. She grew up in a rural village worshipping Heimr, an ever-changing and seductive god of the hunt. Offering blood to make the crops grow is second nature, but part of Katla fears a darker side of her nature that longs for prey. 

Abandoning her worship for a normal life in the city seems to tame that thirst, until Heimr appears in Katla's dreams and calls her back to the wild. They offer her everything she desires, but at a price her body and soul might not survive.

  • consensual transformation

This was awesome. I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read more from you.

A fantastic, bloody streak of desire. Gray brings their signature intoxicating lushness to this winter-themed erotica, where horror and romance are one and the same (as they should be!).

This is marvellous, making such a wild story feel so natural. Katla has such relatable aspects it's worth a read just to see how things go for her.


God I love this. Rien Gray truly has a knack for writing a supernatural as a way that comes off as both unsettling and desirable. I especially loved how the human protagonist, despite not being a shapeshifting ancient god, was just as unhinged as her monster lover. DEF a rec.
