I received a free copy from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review.

I have not read any previous books from this author. Battle Cry is the 2nd book within the series.

I admit, I had a hard time initially just following the story. Perhaps, this may have been a non-issue had I read the first story in the series. I found that I had to keep going in hopes that the story would click for me, and IT DID!

It is action packed to be sure, there is a ton of information to process and a whole s

Great Odin!!

I was gifted this and by the author Melissa Snark for an honest review.

This is book 2 of a great story. I had the pleasure of reading the first one and this second one did not disappoint me.

Victoria, wolf shifter and Valkyrie Priestess in the service of the Goddess Freya, has lost her parents, the love of her life Hunter Daniel and son to the Hunter King Jake. She takes another mate Alpha Alrik, in order to protect the remaining few in her pack and loses him too.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Being a fan of mythology in general, once I saw the words Loki, Valkyrie priestess and wolf shifter, I knew I had to read Battle Cry. I figured it would either be a book I loved, or a book I hated. It was the former.

At first, I had a hard time getting into the book. Part of it was the writing style, and the other part was due to the fact that while this is a standalone book, it is also the second in the series. I felt like I was mi

Turmoil and discoveries
This well written self-contained story has so much going on. There are discoveries to things unknown and battles that wage on, on so many fronts. Victoria is still doing all things to save her pack to include meeting with Hunter King Jake Barrett. Some really surprises in this well written story that is extremely entertaining to read. I can’t say enough as to how good this book as well as the whole series is.
My rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

In Battle Cry (book 2, so I HIGHLY recommend trying to win book 1), we continue on the pack leader's story: a formidable Victoria Storm. She is pregnant and mourning the loss of her beloved Daniel and is finally able to tell his father and his brother that it was not HER who killed him.

The books opens in the heat of action and the action never lets up! Following the different POV of Victoria, Jake, Sawyer, and the gods, we learn of all the convoluted plot twists and battle axes thrown in the pat

A wonderful mixture of mythology and paranormal adventure with personal relationships thrown in for more conflict. A very difficult combination to successfully create and author Melissa Snark masters it.

Victoria, a white wolf shifter, has become Alpha of Storm Pack after her parents and most of her pack are killed in war between the races.

Battle Cry is actually the third book in the Loki's Wolves Series. It says you don't have to read it with the other books but I highly recommend that you do. Otherwise there are sections that would not make much sense or you would not realize the significance it holds. Victoria is building a life for herself and her pack in Sierra Pines, California. Sawyer Barrett tracks her down there but before he even talks to her a vampire att

Battle Cry starts where Hunger Moon ended but can be read as a standalone book. Melissa Snark has blended paranormal and Norse mythology to bring a world and characters to life.
These are people I learned to care about. Their joy and their losses made me laugh and cry. Ms. Snark’s gift for writing paints phenomenal pictures.

I give it 4 fangs.

Battle Cry by Melissa Snark is 2nd book in the Loki’s Wolves series. The books continue one after another. So read Hunger Moon first to have a better understanding of what is happening in this book. I suggest this book for adults and mature teens.

Warning: Spoilers from book one.

Victoria is the Alpha of her pack. But she has only been the Alpha after her father and several members of the pack were killed. Since t
I must admit to being totally biased when it comes to Melissa's books, I just love everything about them. You just know that when you buy the book you will come away having had a very satisfying read, that doesn't have any faffing about and you will be left dying for the next one. What I really enjoyed about this one was even though Victoria is a strong lead character who has been having a really bad day, week and life with more to come, she steps back a bit to let the other characters to develo ...more

This is the second book I have read in the Loki's Wolves series and the story keeps pulling me in more and more. I am on pins & needles with Victoria's battles with the hunters. And her struggle to keep her pack together just keeps me wanting to reach out and help her through it. I really enjoyed during this book that even with her own struggles she is still willing to follow her goddess and help the other children escape from the 'Child Thief' villain in the book. I will certainly be picking up ...more

I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an unbiased review.

Battle Cry is the third book in the Loki’s Wolves series, following directly on from the previous book Hunger Moon. This book starts out as almost 3 separate books in one, with the threads slowly being wound closer and closer together until, by the end, you have a cohesive whole.

I'll admit, I almost gave on on this one after the first few chapters. The jumping around an vague references kept me from connecting with characters. Since I'd read prior books Valkyrie's Vengeance, and Hunger Moon, and enjoyed them, I stuck this one out and at some point, the story line snapped together for me and I was caught up in the plot. The rating is due to the difficult start, but the book had a strong ending with a few twists and turns that kept me smiling. ...more

Powerful writing in this novel! I have no doubt that one would love to read book one in this series before starting this one. However, I had no trouble following the plot or getting involved with the characters. Melissa uses all her senses when writing. The smells of battle and death are included here. The writing is descriptive, clear and polished.
It might be hard to find a person that hasn’t been exposed to a vampire or werewolf movie or book at some point in their life. Melissa doesn’t stop a

But, she must put that aside when she realizes the vampire who took her lover also took his soul.

I received this book from the author via Goddess Fish Promotions in exchange for an honest review. I have read a lot of Melissa Snark's work over the years, but all of that work cannot compare to Battle Cry. This is by far, her best work yet that blends fantasy, Norse legend, and the paranormal. All of her work is really good, but I like Battle Cry the best!

Melissa is an exceptional storyteller. Her imagery is so descriptive that I find it complete poetry. The book had me hooked right from page

EEEEgads where do I start! Victoria is still getting used to the idea of being pregnant and is having visions of Daniel! His brother is hot on her heels and she is unsure whether its safe to approach his family and explain what happened when Daniel died or if she'll just muddy the waters and turn potential fragile links to being allies to further enmity!! I was almost bubbling at parts from the sheer emotional tug she and Daniel have on my poor wee heart!

I give 5 stars to Battle Cry by Melissa Snark. This is an urban fantasy / paranormal romance and is for readers 18+ due to sexual content.

I found Battle Cry to be an amazing book. I was caught up in the fascinating and truly original storyline; drama, action, and suspense. While reading the book, I was eagerly hanging on trying to find out what would happen next. At times, I had to keep a box of tissue handy nearby to wipe away my tears.

I didn't think it was possible, but I loved this more then the first book! I LOVE Jake Barrett's character, and now Sawyer is more understandable and tragic. Victoria has grown some, she's not overly hot headed, she feels real and I admire her drive to protect her pack.

I was worried when vampires were thrown in there, but they are not the Vampire Diaries type, so it totally works.

This is one of my favorite series, and now September can't come fast enough!

Battle Cry by Melissa Snark is #2 of her Loki's Wolves Series.

The world Melissa Snark has built is incredible; The Storm Werewolf Pack is descended from Norse Gods and Goddesses.
