Blurb: Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow on the people around her. And she knows all too well what psychiatrists do to people who claim impossible powers. She’s always stayed below the radar, but when she discovers the meaning of the beautiful auras, she’s not sure why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead and be unable to do anything about it.
But Bryn is on the brink of the unbelievable truth – she is a creature from myth. Valkyrie- a warrior maiden of the God Odin. And a Collector of Souls.
Aidan Lee just can’t do what he’s told. Visiting Craven was not supposed to be a time to fall in love. He’s just helpless when faced with the beautiful Brynhildr, but there is more to the biker dude that either Bryn or Aidan himself knows.
Can their fledgling love survive the secrets and intrigue, the reality of Odin’s realm of Asgard, the pressures of being a warrior of the gods,
But Bryn lucks out when the Trickster god Loki sets his sights on her. Can Bryn hold her own against the charmingly manipulative god long enough to discover what Loki is really planning?
Review: It dragged. That’s the main complaint I have, it was just long. I didn’t see any reason to make it as long as it is. It was interesting in a couple of places but, otherwise I was constantly checking how many chapters I had left before I finished.
I wouldn’t read it again but, it’s fine for a first time read.
Actually, no let me take that back. I know I could erase that but, I like having it there. Anyways, if I’m out of things to read or I’m waiting for another book, maybe I could read it again. I don’t know if I’d be able to finish it a second time though.
Another look into Norse Mythology by way of viewing it from a Valkyrie this time, instead of Loki like in I Bring the Fire. That was pretty neat.
I just felt bored but, kind of wanted to keep going. There was a little fighting but, that’s the key word there, little. Very few and far between.
It was mainly getting ready, worried about something, drama, or a journey. I feel like it could have been shorter and gotten to the point faster.
It’s kind of like watching a show that has a lot of seasons and has these filler episodes that doesn’t really have anything to do with the main plot.
The writing was good, maybe a little plain but, otherwise I enjoyed it. It was just long.
Thank you for reading my review.
