My Rating ~ 4 bites and a nibble

After spending some time as a shooting star, Solina Mundy is human again and trying to figure out what the hell just happened. Appearing in her home state she knows it’s a dangerous place to be, so she hits the road looking for answers and her friends while trying her best to stay off the grid and under her enemy’s radar. Eventually she is found and she needs the help of her former boss Thorin. Things go downhill from there and it’s a race to grab a legendary sword that can destroy anything and everything before the bad guys do.

An excellent modern day Ragnarök in the making, this story has action, intrigue, mystery, bad guys, and sexual heat galore. However, as much as I love the story, it seems to be suffering from book two-itis. There’s a lot going on, but it seems to be a bit scattered and Solina is trying too hard to be a badass. I don’t think she’s making very good decisions and that pisses me off a bit because I thought her to be smarter than that. The hows and whys of this whole scenario are also a little sketchy, but that could just be me. But that ending? What in the actual...holy shit! I really didn’t see that coming. I’m looking forward to seeing where they go from here.


  1. I like the idea of this series. Such a great cover too:)

  2. I loved this addition to the series. Granted there is a lot going on to keep track of. I liked the fact that Skyla is learning more about her history that she wasn't aware of. As far as Solina's character flaw, you'd be just as disappointed if she got everything right as well. I am really looking forward to book three. :D

    1. I don't expect her to get everything right, but it seems like she's just willy-nillying it. And that does make me mad. I do like how Skyla is coming into her own. Book 3 is gonna be interesting!

  3. I like the sound of this series, so it needs to go on my every growing wishlist. :)
