Update Review:

I have a not so shocking confession: I am obsessed with S.T. Bende's Elsker Saga. I love it...hardcore! I raved about it. I championed Kristia's WINNING wedding dress. I even used my absolute favorite GIF on Goodreads begging for more.(See Below)

And finally S.T. gave me more Ull and Kristia in the form of Endre (Elsker Saga #2)!

Endre is a fantastic follow up to Elsker that simultaneously left me satisfied and longing for more. Ull and Kristia have gone from the love struck college

My my my, do I love this series! S.t. Bende has hit another homerun with Endre.

It is just one of those series that you know will capture your heart and will stay with you forever. And believe me when I say that it is rare for me these days to finds books that I actually want to finish and look forward for the next ones - So that says a lot about this series for me that is.

In this book you are cordially invited to attend the wedding of the millenium. A weddin

Endre: Everyone’s Favorite Norse God is Back. And This Time, It’s Matrimonial

If you read and loved ST Bende’s Elsker, you’ll know that it’s an exciting romance about a Norse god, Ull, who falls in love with a mortal named Kristia, and their love is as sweet as a Norse waffle. And they would get the happily-ever-after that they deserve, if it weren’t for a little thing called Ragnarok, or the End of the World as We Know It. (And Kristia does not feel fine).

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my hones review.

After reading Elsker, I was super excited to read Endre. Wedding plans? Goddess lessons? Ragnarok? I wanted this book like yesterday!

Kristia and Ull are great as ever. Seriously, this couple is so sweet, they will give you a toothache (in a good way of course). I like how strong Kristia is. She had too deal with so much in such a short amount of time (graduation, wedding, changing into a goddess, learning to use her visions and R

I really love this series so far, the first book was free, then after reading that I was hooked. Had to go buy this one and Book 3 as well. I love Ull he is so hot, and i guess overall a great guy. Great characters that you will fall in love with. This book is written very well too.

I highly recommend to anyone who likes paranormal/mythology type books.

5 out of 5 stars

it goes a little something like this:

Kristia: "ohhh he's so dreamy, but such a gentleman. ohh I have all these visions. So crazy but anything terrible that happens in my life is worth it for Ull, a million times over."

Ull: "I will protect you with everything I have, love of my life."

The end.

Well if I thought I was already completely in love with this series, I was wrong! Endre has cemented these characters into my heart forever. Every aspect of this story played out perfectly, I never wanted it to end.

Kristia and Ull have come so far since they first met. Now together and planning their wedding they are in the midst of the happiest time of their life, yet the real, and imminent threat of Ragnarok is looming over their heads. Kristia is not only planning a wedding (or rather reinin

Endre is the second book of The Elsker Saga. Elsker is the first book. There is also a prequel novella, Tur. This saga involves Norse mythology, taking place in both the world of the Norse gods as well as on Earth. Endre picks up right where Elsker left off, with Kristia knee deep in wedding plans (though she delegates well) and preparing to be a goddess herself. And that's just a part of what she's dealing with.

I have really enjoyed reading this series so far. I love the way Bende has combined

***ARC provided for honest review*** - originally posted at Reading Rainblog

I loved Ull in Elsker, but I absolutely adored him in Endre! Endre starts out with one of Kristia’s dreams/visions where she has to deal with the dreaded “Elfie” who started trying to make her life miserable in Elsker, and has definitely not eased off now. Kristia is busy planning a wedding – with Inga’s help (and you can check her out on Pinterest), getting ready to graduate, and preparing to leave Mortal life behind in

**The following review is for the original version of this book. Hopefully I'll have my review for the UPDATED version very soon!!**

I've been obsessed with all things Elsker (Who am I kidding? Ull, I've been obsessed with Ull) for a while now, so I was SO excited to finally get this Endre ARC into my grubby little Norse loving hands. I was definitely not disappointed with Elsker's sequel-- I only wish it could have been a bit longer! As with the first book in this series, I was so wrapped up in

This series has so much potential, and promises an exciting future with the all of the possibilities she's laid out in the plot. The upcoming ragnarok war, her goddess abilities, being the answer to stop the downfall of the asgardians. And yet, we have another book that was all dialogue. There is always talk and no action. Literally nothing happens. They argue over how much they love each other and how he wants to keep her safe. Oh, and they get married. Kristia talks about all of the struggles ...more

So I was very kindly sent an advance copy by Ull and I was so excited to find out how his and Kristia's wedding plans where progressing plus I was crossing my fingers for Tom Hiddleston's Loki to show up (he never does....). It kicks right off with Kristia dreaming of an evil elf who seems to know far too much about what she has planned and is down right threatening.

Ull of course is naturally worried for her but Kristia not only has this elf to worry about she is about to get married to the God

It has only begun!

After all they have been through Kristia is finally able to plan her dream wedding to Ull. Between that and Goddess training she has a lot of things on her plate. Things aren't all sunshine and roses between the two, however, with the upcoming apocalypse threatening to tear there new found happiness apart forever. The second installment is jammed packed with action and suspense leaving me turning each page in anticipation of what was to come next. Not to mention the amount of s

After reading the first book in this series, I was hooked. Endre was a lovely story about Kristia coming into her own. She really does grow up in this book. I totally enjoyed the fact that this story has ties to Norse mythology.

What is the best part is that both of the main characters, Kristia and Ull, are so honest and strong. It is great that Ull is so protective of her and he continues to try to protect her even though she calls him out on it. He does try his best to honor her wishes that sho

In a god!!..

This book begins right where the last one left off - I am so happy that I can continue on!

Again, I love the Norse mythology in here and the fact that the relationship (while it's a major part of the book obvs), isn't the only focus. I love the plot and I was captivated.

I was really keen to see how her wedding plans pan out and this definitely had be hooked. Kristina has also built a support network around her and it's great to see her finding her feet in the realm of the gods. The gods are easy

Two days after finishing the first one, I'm done with the second!!

Another absolutely fantastic book. In this one, I continued to be thrilled with the relationship between Kristia and her girls, particularly the developing friendship with Inga. The wedding prep scenes were especially wonderful. I also loved the scenes between Kristia and Olaug/Elsker/Sif.

Ull continues to be the pinnacle of perfection, and I loved his extra-protective nature. The honeymoon and Loki scenes were my favourites. :)

You often read a second book and walk away disappointed, that is NOT the case here. The second book is as good as the first if not better.
Ull is an unbelievable man, I mean god. The God of Winter is romantic, sexy, sweet and protective. Kristia is sweet, brave and as protecitve

Well, as in book 1 of The Elsker Saga, book 2 is just as exciting. If you can imagine marriage to a Norse God, then you will have an idea
what's happening in this second book. Besides the obvious love affair between Ull and Kristia, there is plenty of drama and scary situations as well.

This book is a page turner and keeps the storyline going throughout. It definitely deserves the 5 star rating I gave it. Looking forward to the next in the series.

I enjoyed the first book in this series a lot. This was a nice addition to the series, although it felt a bit like a novella and really could just have been added to the last book. But I like the characters, and the back story a lot.
If you like vikings, gods, romance and the end of the world all tied into one, your going to love this series.

First book was the initial romance, second book is the wedding prep and wedding.

The things you do for love - like nearly die and become immortal. Keeps the promise of the first book - women remain as strong as Norse women should be, and those who would be friends with them. Worth buying the boxed set after being sucked in by the first story.
