(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I think this trilogy, so far, is a good example of young adult books that I actually enjoy and find well-written, with romances that make sense and are given the time to develop.
The idea of the Norse gods residing inside humans’ souls is quite an interesting one, though I would really like to know why it’s those people in particular. I also really liked seeing the appearance of one of the Valkyries, though Mist’s presence raised some more questions I would have liked to have answered.
I liked Coral as a character. She came across as really different to Raven and it was nice to see the link-ins with the previous book. I also particularly liked seeing Tanar’s relationship with his father. I’ve become quite a fan of father-son relationships and brother relationships.
Speaking of brothers… I was particularly fond of Josh and Grim. When they first appeared in the book, I wasn’t really sure what to make of them, but they really grew on me as the storyline went on.
I do find the relationship between Coral and her sisters and the Norns a really interesting one. And it was quite good to learn more about the triplets and their history.
It was also good to see more of the general magic, since Coral was the magic-user of the three of them. I also liked that the skills/abilities of the characters came across as quite realistic… at least in the world of the book.
There are still some more questions I had by the end of the book, but some of the ones I had after the previous book were answered in this one.
I do have the third book saved on my Kindle, ready to read. Having read the second book, I’m eager to find out how everything all ties together and what will eventually happen with Ragnorak.
I’m really enjoying the world in this book and learning about the characters. I like books with Norse mythology in anyway (and the references to the Thor movies were cool), but I do think these are pretty entertaining.
