Wow, this series took me on a great ride. I loved it, and will not say much as I do not want to spoil anything for you.
I loved the characters and came to really care for them.
You can get the first book free for ebook, and you will get hooked. I had to buy the 2nd and 3rd right away as i loved it so much.

Give this series a chance if you like mythology and paranormal books.
You will fall in love with Ull like I did too.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

4.5 Stars.

Finally the Honeymoon! I must say, I love Ull and Kristia. They are just so very sweet. And fun. And funny. And sexy in their very adorable way. All the build-up of their relationship was lovely and I caught myself grinning and sighing contentedly often during this book, particularly the first half. Just seeing Ull and Kristia let loose and be completely free with each was the best. I especially loved the new fun side of Ull we got to see. This story gave me all kinds of happy.

WOW! This was such an awesome series! I was sad to see it end! However, this was the perfect ending to the story. Kristia and Ull are adorable! I've already pre-ordered the first book in a new series set with Norse mythology. This was a perfect trilogy and I can't recommend the five star read enough!
everything was too happy and mushy. It was too much, coming from someone who loves love stories. too many "perfects" "I love yous" "darlings" etc.

Where do I even begin? I will try to tell you my thoughts without veering too far into fangirl land. Ha! I have loved every single second of the Elsker Saga. This series proves that you can have a clean series that still has all the elements that people want to find in a book: love, romance, adventure, with a fabulous paranormal flair- a unique spin involving the Norse gods. Tro opens up literally seconds after the end of Endre. Kristia and Ull are on the way to their honeymoon. She has already ...more

Everything I wanted the first two books to have are all HERE! Therefore, this is my MOST favorite book in the trilogy!

I still think this book series didn't get the much deserved attention it deserves! It's a great series and I love it! Did I say I love it? haha!

Seriously though. On a random note, it's so funny. The other day, my friend and I went to a Phillip Phillip concert in Manhattan, and in between the first act and Phillip finally singing, these three HUGE tall guys worked their way and s

Review to come!

Update 12/23/14:

I didn't think I could possibly love this series more, but Ms. Bende has proven me wrong! This conclusion to the Elsker Saga was phenomenal, and sweeps you off your feet from the very first page. Ms. Bende has such an elegant way with words that you will never want to stop reading. Because of this, you'll easily devour this book in one sitting (even though you want it last forever)! The scenes were yet again perfectly and richly described so you can easily picture

Thank you to ST Bende for providing me with an advance copy

The Elsker Saga has been an incredible read and the improvement in my Norwegian has been immense!

Kristia and Ull's journey is nearing it's end, will they have a happy ending or will Asgard fall and those they love be lost?

Before anything happens though they need to have their honeymoon, at the end of the last book Kristia became Mrs Myhr (breaking thousand of fan girl hearts in the process) and Ull has one hell of a romantic honeymoon li

*I received this as an ARC for a honest review*

The teeth achingly sweetness between Ull and Kristia has returned! There’s nothing wrong with it, its just isn’t my cup of tea.

Ull is protective to the point that it’s suffocating. It seems as if he wanted a kept woman instead of a warrior/independent woman, and while Kristia is willing to indulge him from time to time that’s essentially who I feel she is not. But on the other hand I am actually liking the married Ull.

I received a copy in return for a review.

When this came through as a read and review I very nearly didn't sign up. I had already read the first books in this series, and I was left felling really disappointed after book two. So I signed up for this book, as I figured, I had read the series up to this point just finish it and find out how it ends.

And boy am I glad I signed up. This was how to write a sequel! It was packed full of action. It moved with pace. It held my attention. I flew through th

YES, I liked Tro very much! It was a great ending to a great trilogy. I will keep an eye on you, S.T. Bende!
This book was full of action, a bit (a lot) more steam (I was getting toothache of the sweetness) and interesting developments. Go read this book!

The book started in a bubble, the honeymoon bubble. Far away from the world (loved the Valkyries btw, they are awesome), a place to have fun! I felt just as relaxed as Ull and Kristia were. It had

This series just keeps getting better and better. After you attend the wedding of Krista and Ull you get to witness the making of a goddess. The honeymoon is going well but as they decide to return home the fight of their lives is before them. Krista is trying to learn to control her visions and foresee the future of Asgard. Will she be able to see the enemies and help save Asgard?

The action in this book was non stop. At times I was scared to turn the page because I did not want to see who was g

I just finished this book to the series and loved it. It really surprised me at the end and I am not going to spoil it for you, so you will just have to read it yourself. Kristia is one strong woman and even she didn’t know how strong she was until she needed to be. The fact that she never gave up on those she loved and always put them before her made for a great read. Ull and Kristia together make a very romantic couple so if you really don’t care about mythology or wars, there is a very cool l ...more

Why does it feel like Kristia is getting younger as the books progress? The constant lovie droning of the 2nd book progressed in this one. By the end it feels like you just read the diary of a love-sick teenager with her first crush, instead of an Asgardian Seer, learning and strengthening her immortal powers and becoming an all-powerful being. Ull also seemed more and more like a too-soft blubber instead of the hardened warrior learning to love. The big major battle that we've all been waiting ...more

Tro continues immediately from Endre, where Kristia and Ull are embarking on their honeymoon. It's great being a fly on the wall to their honeymoon! Kristia, being a new goddess, has lots to learn. As always, the threat of Ragnarok is there and Kristia's visions are alarming. There are new monsters, demons and old monsters identities are revealed (didn't see that one coming!). The final chapters are thoroughly enjoyable. I hav

I cannot get enough of this series. I would love to read more about some of the other characters we have met & Ardis needs her HEA what ever that might be. Five stars for this truly exciting book. It is so hard to not give away the story. Read it you won't be sorry

The story finally gets going in this concluding chapter. I would say I like these characters more than the ones in Twilight, but I still see a few parallels. This story works better I think. In the end I liked it well enough that I think I will try out the spin off series. :)

Tro; the conclusion to the Elsker series! Once again we follow Ull and Kristia during their day to day life; learning how to be married, be intimate with each other, dealing with Ragnarok, and the new powers that Kristia is inheriting.

I think this is my favourite book when it comes to Ull's personality. He's finally starting to relax and let go and just ave fun with Kristia, not just the series intense version of himself. Hes learning to embrace the fun and playful side of himself and she is le

As previously mentioned, I'm enduring a bit of downtime right now but am finding ways to fill it quite productively. Binge reading "The Elsker Saga" has been one of the most enjoyable & productive.

I'd already taken in "The AEre Saga" so it was great to see the other side of the coin as it were. It was almost as if Kristia & Ull were discovering more talents and abilities within each other on every page. The ultimate showdown and the events (visions) leading up to it demonstrate this quite admira

I'm sad this series had to end, but I loved every second of it! Book 3 was fantastic, was super fast paced but gave you everything you ever wanted/great way to end the series. One of my favorite parts was when Kristia was learning her Goddess of Winter powers while on her honeymoon and once they are back. Yeah, the honeymoon setting reminded me of Breaking Dawn, but this one was so much better and thank goodness Kristia didn't get pregnant.

Great ending to an awesome series. Starting off with a honeymoon is always a good way to start an action filled adventure. Raw emotions showcase in a battle of a life time. The mix of love, laughter, and heartbreak makes it a book you do not want to put down. And the multitude of surprises at the end. Looooove it!!!
