I can stress the importance of reading this series in order. The main story arc in each book continues on after each other, and you may be a bit lost if you just pick up any of the series. But it’s well worth the time – this is a fantastic series, full of action, Norse Gods, hot scenes, and great dialog. This story has some great twists in it, especially in the back end of the book and will keep you guessing on the edge of your seat. What a fantastic series this would be on the small or large screen.
Freyr, the God of Love, is on a mission when he wrecks to avoid hitting a girl that comes out of nowhere. This girl is Lilly. Lilly can't leave Freyr, and he's in no condition to drive, so she takes him home. Lilly is offered a safe place to stay and fed for the night. When Freyr makes a miraculous recovery, Lilly knows something is up.
When a planned battle doesn't go as expected, Freyr has to face the fact that there was a betrayal, and he's to blame. There may not be a day to fight anymore, but a day to flee.
Fast paced read! I liked that the Protagonist, although must do things not of her choosing, at her heart exists a good soul.
I received an ARC in a giveaway, and I have voluntarily reviewed this book.
Chicago. Gods. Mortals with their own powers. This volume expands the tale, yet focuses more on Freyr, as described by Lilly:
"God, he was gorgeous. Blonde, with a too-handsome face and the kind of cheekbones seen on billboards and fashion ads. Very gently, Lilly wiped the corner of her scarf across the cut, catching a small rivulet of blood. He was breathing okay. And the bleeding was slowing down. Mostly. Reaching out again, she went to brush away another drop of blood when his hand caught her wrist in a crushing grip. Foggy golden eyes locked with hers and held on like there was an unbreakable lifeline stretched between them."
The gods are beautiful, hulking intelligent men who each seem to have a weakness for a human female. Hel, the villainous goddess, is an interesting character smitten by girl stuff like name brands, high heels, torture, and world domination. The human ladies are stronger than mere mortals for a variety of reasons.
As the saga ramps up, each book is more action than the previous. This one ends in a bit of a cliffhanger that makes me happy the next is not only released, but already downloaded on my Kindle. A highly engrossing, enjoyable series.
Freyr is lonely, even more so after watching his brothers fall in love. Lilly isn't anything he expected but even after her betrayal he feels connected to her.
While the whole gang works to prepare for the upcoming battles with Hel, Orobus and her brother's forces, Lily proves valuable to the team with her keen insight and ability to piece information together.
There's a lot of fast paced action, but very little resolution on the overall story arc, with Orobus. There's battles, kidnappings and additional information revealed about the stones, Hel and Odin but they are all teasers, not giving any true solutions to ending the threat once and for all. The story cuts off abruptly, not giving a reader a feeling of closure for this segment of the storyline making it feel unfinished or missing pages.
While I like these characters and the action, this book seemed to just tread water. The romance between Freyr and Lilly was nice but I enjoyed their characters more than their romance itself.
