Valkyries have one great responsibility: to return immortals to the afterlife by slaying them. As a Valkyrie, Malin has always known that the balance of the world rests on her ability to carry out orders. But when Malin discovers that her mother spared the life of an immortal who was destined to die, her world is thrown into chaos.
Malin not only wrestles with the knowledge that her mother might not be who she thought—she’s also thrust into the path of a gorgeous blue eyed guy named Asher who needs her help slaying the rogue immortal who destroyed his family. The balance of the world is at stake. And, as Asher competes with Malin’s ex for her love and loyalty, so is her heart.
Review: The concept of this book sounded so super interesting. I’ve never read an Amanda Hocking book before, so I thought I’d start with this one. Unfortunately it took me 26 chapters to actually get into the story. Malin seems like a great character – albeit one who’s super confused about love. This turns out to make her relationships kind of annoying. I also wasn’t expecting the Valkyries to be like they were in the book. I guess I’m used to the Valkyries from Rick Riordan books and other mythological stories I’ve read, so this was kind of hard to wrap my head around. Once I got through the first 26 chapters, the action seemed to pick up for me, and I did start enjoying it more. Will I read the next book in the series? Yes! Only because I need to know what happens next! If you’re into Valkyries, you may want to pick up this book – just know it’s not the Valkyries you may be used to!
