The wedding was an interesting way to start the story. I really like the idea of the blood ring.
Woden seems not that nice of man only doing things that benefit himself, he sacrifices his men on a useless hunt for vampires just to find the golden one that he had kidnapped from the wedding that he just happened to gate-crash
Will the newly weds find each other again and will they live happy ever after or are they doomed to be apart for the rest of their long life?
The author installs hate for Wooden and if you have enough empathy your might feel sorry for him. But I don’t I think he gets what is owned it him.
