NEWSLETTER ADVERTISING UNDERNEATH CHAPTER HEADER! This annoyed me to no end.. You gotta flip through quite some pages to finally get to the actual story, and then it says "Chapter one" only to tell you to subscribe to the newsletter after that. I don't think that is actually the start of the plot... *rolls eyes*

Emotions in this one are all over the place. One moment is so scared for her packmate, and the next she giggles. The man who thinks she is responsible for the d

this book was given to me but LoP in an exchange of an honest review

Valkyrie's Vengeance is a book made for lovers of Scandinavian mythology and supernatural........and Im proud of reading it...

Melissa Snark has a way of storing things in the readers mind and making him crave more of her book.....

Her heroine, an indepedent and brave woman inspires courage and dignity despite all the barriers life has thrown in her way

I would like to continue reading her books and I wholeheartedly rate it with a
Not sure how i feel going forward

This was a freebie.
Granted the story was decently written and I did find the supernatural elements good. It was harder to combine my thinking of the shifter world with the old school Norse world, than it should have been. Not sure if it's how the author introduced everything or just me. I'm somewhat intrigued to read the rest of the books but also not super excited about them. Probably end up on the to-read list for awhile.

Update: So I read the blurbs for the res
This was quite an exciting and fast paced book, had my heart beating a bit faster in some parts! I haven't read a lot of shifter books, but I found the Norse angle really interesting. Also really enjoyed the writing style. Melissa Snark is like an artist painting a picture with words, because I felt like I was in the scenes with Victoria. (The vision sequence Freya gives her about the little girl? Awful! I was nearly in tears.)

I receive a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, Lovers of Paranormal.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat pretty much the whole time. This was a twist on shifter lore that I really like! Adding in the Norse mythology is an angle that I have not come across before in my hunts for a good shifter read. I am also a fan of the writing style. Snark has a way of weaving the tale that keeps you wanting more without wanting me to pull my hair out (I quite like my hair where it is lol)

This is the first instalment of Loki's Wolves Series. The author crafts a wonderfully written tale which has relatable characters and really good action sequences at the end. Through her depiction of Jake Barrett, one can feel how threatening he is. Mysterious paranormal creatures, werewolves, valkyries, and priestess, all in all a really good tale. Refreshing as well. A recommended fantasy fiction.

This is a fast paced book that had great characters and a storyline that flowed well. What I loved most was the mythology of the story. You had mythical creatures, shape shifters, and hunters. I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened next.

Melissa Snark found an intriguing balance between shifters and Norse mythology to create her wolf shifter Valkyrie.

The young woman could not have a better name-Victory.

She has huge responsibilities as a protector-the Alpha of her pack, on the run from the Barret Hunters.

The Barret's Hunters killing spree rose hate and hard feelings.  The loss of her family and other pack members was unforgettable.

Victory is strong-willed, determined and resilient.

She must protect and guide her pack. For that,

I was searching for something new to read and the cover drew me in. After reading the synopsis I downloaded and started reading. The main character Victoria is a woman with a lot on her plate. As Alpha she defends and leads, but she is also a healer, a helper of the helpless, a fearless fighter a preserver of traditions. At the same time, she is suffering loss with symptoms of PTSD and racked with guilt over the death of her partner and her inability to save him. There are some harrowing scenes ...more

How cool is this book? Awesome.

I really enjoyed this book. But it does require some tissues. Just a little warning. The background tied into Norse Mythology is truly unique. I don't like to give much away because I hate spoilers. But I will start with the main character, Victory, who had to become Alpha of her pack at a young age has been through an extremely rough time. So has her pack. This is definitely one of the more original Wolf shifter books I've read. And one can't wait to read more of

This book was ok,

I read a lot and I like how this book started. But to me a good book takes a day or more to read. I'm no speed reader , but this book only took 2 hours. I known it take longer to write than read and I know if you don't commit the book always changes. The book has potential just wish it was longer.

Poor Victoria, her world has all but collapsed and she is struggling to survive but she still finds time to be a hero. This is a fast paced story and you may need some tissues, there is lots happening and the characters are all great. It does end on a slight cliff hanger but that just means I need to read more in this series.

Melissa Snark is a new-to-me author.

Valkyrie's Vengeance, a prequel short to Loki's Wolves, pulled me in the minute I opened the book! I literally could not put it down.

I love the fully fleshed out characters, and the world building is top-notch.

This is a short and quick read, and sets up the series wonderfully. You immediately identify with the main character, Victoria (Victory) Storm, and the story keeps you on the edge

Valkyrie’s Vengeance

This was a little different than the wolf shifter books I’ve read. Also, this can be read as a stand-alone book but really is a serial. I enjoyed the book but I believe I will have to read the other books in the series to get my HEA.

Heartbreaking Tale

This was an intriguing story. The plot was solid, well thought out and constructed. Victoria is a force and quite an emotional character. This ends with a huge cliff hanger that begs you to keep reading.

Abduction, death and despair. Victoria is an anomaly, in that she serves both Odin and Freya. But she is also nursing a broken heart, trying to find a missing child, and attempting to keep herself and her pack alive. Fast-paced, multi-faceted.

Really enjoyed this book

The mix of wolves and Valkyries is an interesting one. It does start out with story untold, which is rather confusing, but it picks up quickly. Some tighter editing would be beneficial. Overall, a good read.

This was a heartbreaking novel. Victoria is an Alpha wolf shifter but she is also a priestess to Freya and a Valkyrie to Odin. Loved her titles by the way. She is on the run from hunters due to a misunderstanding about a death of a certain someone but she also feels guilty about it. Because of that, there's a battle brewing between the hunters and wolf shifters and both sides suffered casualties.

And back to main story is that she needs to align herself with the hunters who want to kill in order

Victoria Storm ia a shapeshifter, a priestess of the goddess Freya and one of Odin's Valkyries. She is also her very small packs alpha, since her parents and most of the pack was killed by Hunters. The packs death was revenge for the death of Jake Barrett's son, the leader of the hunters, and it was this group of hunters that killed Victoria's parents and most of her pack.

Despite a confusing start where it felt like I ended up in the middle of the story, this book's action quickly heated up to the point where I was unable to put it down. Victoria is the alpha of a rag tag werewolf pack. There are only a handful of them left after the Hunters killed most of them, including Victoria's parents. It seems they are living out of their cars. Victoria is an alpha, a nurse, healer, one of Freya's priestesses and Odin's Valkyrie. No wonder the poor girl feels conflicted! W ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was intrigued by the idea of a werewolf serving both Odin and Freya.
Victoria Storm is introduced rather abruptly on a street corner. Horrific events have occurred causing the death of her parents and most of her pack. We are told she has little money, experience, and now must do some service to her Goddess, but she doesn't know what it is. We got very little feel for who she is, except for flashbacks with her lover, whom we know is dead

This is an exciting easy read following Victoria as she gets a message from the Norse Goddess Freya to free abducted children. Interspersed throughout the storyline is her sorrow over the memories of the tragic loss of her parents, pack and Daniel, the hunter she loved.

I love how the author brings the story to a spiritual fantasy feeling with conversations between Victoria and the Goddess. Even the addition of the hunters who are lead by Jake the father of her deceased love and who blame her for

This is the first book I have read by this author and I'm excited to to delve further into this series. This is a shifter tale with quite a few twists. You have Victoria. She is the werewolf leader of her pack, but she is also Freya's priestess and Odin's Valkyrie. These are all big responsibilities that weigh on her even more heavily after most of her pack and her lover Daniel were killed.

***I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, Lovers of Paranormal.***

It was definitely an interesting setup/plot/characters for this book, I'm just not entirely sure how I feel about it, I'm kind of torn with lots of things that I didn't like and some that I did enjoy.

I like the idea of Norse mythology, I'm not entirely knowledgeable about it, which was why this book held so much intrigue for me. However it seemed like the plot was a little jumpy and uneven which didn't allow me to

Shifters with Norse Mythology feel.

Victoria Storm is a shifter, descended from Fenrir himself. She is also a priestess to Freya and a Valkyrie. When the decades long truce between her pack and the Hunters is broken, she is left devastated by the loss of her parents and then left stunned by becoming Alpha of her tiny little pack.

Victoria had loved Daniel Barrett, son of the head hunter. But when he died whilst on a vampire hunt, she is held accountable by his family and hell breaks loose.
