The book is full of action, quests and mystery and evolves around Nora Hunt, the female protagonist who shifts from East to West – bit of Divergent theme here, which I loved, and also reminds me of Hunger Games, I’m a fan of those books, so loved how the story unravelled into something unexpected as Viking and Norse mythology. The book is full of surprises, and I love the tension between Nora and Frederick. Will they be lovers or rivals?
Fighting her fears, she takes control of her life, one battle at a time. Strange though it seems, she fits in this environment better than she ever did in her past life. Competition here is applauded, contests abound, whether they are personal or not.
She learns that what she is, is not wrong, but is definitely different. Not all is as it seems, and she is not the only one who is different, there is a boy...and did she imagine it, or did he fly her out of danger? Why won't he admit it to her?
This story has many merits. It is an interesting plot and the story keeps up a steady pace. However, the action scenes are not well written, sadly, and the emotions described, seem way over the top for the situation they spring from.
I like the characters Nora and Frederick. They seem like their relationship is possibly going somewhere but the rough handling the dialogue gets in this book tends to leave one confused as to which emotional aspect it's coming from. The trust, don't trust, part of each chapter is also frequently confusing at times...it is inconsistent and tends to be expressed in extremes, when these extra emotions are uncalled for in the plot. Having said all that, this is still a fairly good book, which could perhaps just do with a quick rewrite in certain areas. Especially the action scenes. The characters are slowly developing and their growth is steady, and predictable.
This book has huge potential if handled by an experienced hand. It's possible that the quirks in the story are just due to translation issues. But I don't know if it was translated from another language or not.
Marks out of five stars for this one? A positive 4 stars, mainly given for the huge effort the writer has gone through to tell this fascinating and richly tapestried story. A very good effort
I'm so glad I listened to her and decided to get it and read it.
I fell in love with the characters, and I'm already a Big fan of the Norse Gods and the Vikings etc.
A real page turner that I read in one sitting including through the night (I must learn not to start a book just before bed!)
Highly recommend this to all book lovers
This story contains a lot of adventure mixed with a pinch of attraction to someone who is effectively forbidden.
I was lucky enough to receive an Advanced readers copy, and now I can't wait for the next instalment...!!!
