He always keeps her at arms length but when veil creatures are being wiped out in their own homes, Valkyrie is sent to investigate and join forces with the Maxwells and that leaves Gideon with a dilemma because the more he time he spends around her, the more he wants to touch her, bond with her and the living arrangements put temptation firmly on his doorstep. Valkyrie, unaware of Gideon’s feelings doesn’t understand why he is so standoffish with her, he always seems to hate her and she doesn’t know why, but she’ll give as much as she gets. Her world is much different to Gideons, her life is about survival, being the best, never failing or showing weakness and above all – obeying the laws and customs of her people. She is not allowed to fall in love, she will be given a mate when the time comes and she will do her duty by bearing children to become the next generation of warriors.
As they investigate the slayings, they are forced to enter hostile territory in the hopes of gaining information but what happens is something different, they are betrayed in the worst way possible and the consequences are dire. I could never have imagined the way the story would turn here, yes I was expecting something but wow, what a shocker and it really opened my eyes up to the perpetrator. When Gideon tried to take the blame, it broke my heart because of what he was trying to do and why, it is a big game changer in the story but also a good thing for the progression of the relationship. With the event and the fall out, I thought it brought a softer side out in Valkyrie, she seemed less rigid and willing to see another way but those law abiding tendencies still remain.
As the story keeps on going we have multiple attempts on everyone's lives that inject a lot of action into the plot, we still have murderers on the loose and there’s a real sense of dread upon all at the house. Something is brewing, something bad and this is the basis for what is to come. All of the way through the book, it’s hard to see a way for Gideon and Valkyrie to get their HEA, you really want it for them but there are so many obstacles in the way plus there is a truly tragic event that astounded me – in fact this book is filled with OMG moments that really make you feel like no one is safe. I enjoyed finding out about the other keepers of the gates, each are different and have a different way of doing their jobs but it’s Valkyries I was most interested in and that we got the most information about. Her story is really sad, her life is sad and it was tough to read of her treatment by those meant to love and protect her. The fact that she was not free to love who she chose isn’t even the worst of it so I was so glad she had the Maxells to lean on. There is a lot going on in the story that doesn’t become apparent until the ending, I didn’t feel like the book had a solid conclusion – more of a small cliffhanger ending but it does what its meant to…. Leaves you wanting more.
Phoenix's characters are kickass and so freaking lovable, even the those in leather with daggers strapped to them. I absolutely love the name Valkyrie. I've always been fascinated by the myth, but I never imagined anyone with that name - it is stunning and was so perfect for this strong female warrior. There was so much sexual tension between Val (Yeah! She'd probably kick my ass for calling her that) and Gid, and my heart was in my throat every time they were near each other. The anticipation of their first touch drove my crazy, and Phoenix set the pages ablaze with the teasing and torturous pleasure that these two shared even though they were never able to take in any further. When things finally spilled over and it felt like the ultimate betrayal and devastation for one character, I was in tears; my heart breaking for all concerned.
I loved the many subplots within this story, as well as the many twists and turns. I was thrilled to go along for the ride as the characters battled an unknown evil, while having many other curveballs thrown their way. They proved that a strong family can get through anything, and although their story is far from over I have every confidence in their success.
This book was an absolute delight to read. It was at times shocking, heartrending and soul-crushing, but at others it was light, and fun - with hilarious quips for certain characters, and a sarcasm that only people who are close and love each other dearly can share. By the end of the book I felt like I belonged at Final Judgment and I never wanted to leave.
Set against the backdrop of an inevitable war, this book is action-packed from start to finish. Thank you Airicka for another fantastic book!!
