Sonia doesn’t know who the bad guys are and who the good guys are. All she wants is to rescue her Mom and she will do whatever it takes to accomplish that.
I love this story! I am hooked. I can’t wait until the next book comes out. I even started rereading the book right after I finished it just to experience it all over again. It’s Norse Mythology but it’s happening today. I absolutely love stories that make you think, this could be someone I know and make our world even more mystical. I’ve always been interested in Norway but now I’m obsessed with the folklore. There is plenty of action in this book and a heart gripping romance. My favorite is how it ties in with the other series by E.J. Squires, A Viking Blood saga. http://norsevikingsaga.com/home.html
This seriously has surpassed all other YA series and is by far
my favorite. I mean it; I’m more captivated than I ever was
with Twilight, Hunger Games, or City of Bones. And if you
know me, you know how much I loved those series. This is a
different kind of paranormal/fantasy story and I want to
know more about these magical people and places.
When I read a book I imagine what the movie would be like. This song should be on the playlist.
The Green Children
Actually, any song from them would be great. If I did the casting I would have Milla, who is the lead singer for The Green Children, play Sonia the main character.
Now to find the perfect Anthony….. Oh I got a good one!
Now go read the book so we can start obsessing over it together.
