Read Scion of the Fox (The Realms of Ancient, #1) Online Free - As the winter ice begins to thaw, the fury of a demon builds — all because one girl couldn’t stay dead . . .
Roan Harken considers herself a typical high school student — dead parents, an infected eyeball, and living in the house of her estranged, currently comatose grandmother (well, maybe not so typical) — but she’s uncovering the depth of the secrets her family left behind. Saved from the grasp of Death itself by a powerful fox spirit named Sil, Roan must harness mysterious ancient power . . . and quickly. A snake-monster called Zabor lies in wait in the bed of the frozen Assiniboine River, hungry for the sacrifice of spirit-blood in exchange for keeping the flood waters at bay. Thrust onto an ancient battlefield, Roan soon realizes that to maintain the balance of the world, she will have to sacrifice more than her life in order to take her place as Scion of the Fox.
American Gods meets Princess Mononoke in this powerful first installment of a trilogy sure to capture readers’ imaginations everywhere.

Scion of the Fox is an innovative, compelling read. Roan was very relatable, and helped to draw me in to this world. Accompanying her was a series of lovable (and not so lovable) characters, all of which helped to give this book a personality of it's own. But what captured me the most was...

Scion of the Fox caught my attention as soon as I saw that it was blurbed by Kelley Armstrong, one of my favorite YA authors. If Kelley liked it then I was definitely going to like it - or at least that's what I hoped (and prayed). As it turns out, Scion of the Fox was a great series opener. Uniq...
