Brynn Aksel is a valkyrie—a battle goddess tasked with protecting both the God of War and the future of Asgard. She fends off giants and dark elves with an iron fist, a glossy smile, and no less than perfekt control. She’s focused one-hundred-percent on rising through the valkyrie ranks, and not at all on her lifelong crush on Henrik Andersson—the one guy in all the realms ...more

S.T. Bende…………………. My heart belongs to Ull but now you introduce me to Henrik!!!!!! I am so torn but I couldn’t get enough of this book. You have done it again and you have left me wanting more!

So Bryn is a Valkyrie in training & Henrik (Brother of Gunnar), he is the bodyguard for Tyr, God of War and one hell of a cook (sexy), a fighter, scientist and friend ***give me a second while I just drool for a second****

Being a Valkyrie in training has a hitch, you are not allowed to date, and sadly

Bende has brought us yet another exciting adventure where the world we know collides with the Asgardian legends and characters we have come to love! Henrik and Brynn have been two of my favorites ever since they were introduced to me for the first time in the Supernatural Chronicles Anthology. I love their banter, genius, and comradery. As you see more of their relationship in the first book of this series, you start to get excited for what happens when they finally have their chance. Bende does ...more

This second book in the series follows Mia's best friend and epic Valkyrie warrior Brynn, who along with her mega crush Hendrik is protector of the Norse God of War! Until the beautiful love Goddess Freya goes missing she must band together and go on a mission with her crush for her whole life Hendrik Andersson!.

I love the character of Brynn she is such a badass warrior and could kick anyone's butt however she has such a sensitive side with a lot of things going on making her really relateable.

An emotional rollercoaster ride of perfektion!!!

In this second instalment of S.t. Bende's fabulous Aere Saga, we discover that that age old adage "No rest for the Asgardians" definitely rings true. This time round, the tale unfolds through the viewpoint of Brynn Aksel - resident technical Goddess and vivacious Valkyrie.

Following straight on from the dramatic ending of Book 1: Perfekt Order, our favourite Norse Crew are ready for some down-time celebrating Mia's eighteenth birthday. However, the

The best word to describe ST Bende’s Ære Saga book 2 is: PERFEKT! I thoroughly enjoyed book 1, Perfekt Order, but honestly, for me, Perfekt Control is realms beyond its predecessor. I read it in 2 days and promptly added it to my Favorites Shelf. (I'll try to keep this review short, but it's hard not to express all I loved!)

In book 2, we again get to see Mia and her hunky Norse God of War, Tyr, but this time from the POV of his perky Valkyrie bodyguard, Brynn. However, being privy to Brynn’s tho
Get UR Battle God/Goddess on it's time to Rule The Realms!!! I'm 100% head over heels in LOVE with Perfekt Control. I devoured this book in one night, couldn't put it down even if I wanted to!!! Brynnrik is absolutely to die for, the chemistry was out of this world! What a ride this book is full of wicked twists, fun, killer action and smokin' hot romance. A story of love conquering fear and finding forgiveness. I totally adore Brynn she's a sassy sweet little fireball, so loving, full of spirit ...more

The second book in the saga surprised me, in a very good way. I bought the first book and absolutely loved it and got the chance to win a copy of the second story. I didn't realize until I started reading it that the story continues with the point of view of another character but keeps everyone from the first story intermixed. That's what I get for not reading the story blurb but who needs it when I know the book is going to be great just because S.T. Bende wrote it? lol. I love that idea as it ...more

Another PERFEKT book by ST Bende, each book just gets better and better.

Book 2 we get to meet Mia and her God of War Tyr but it's mainly about 2 of my favourite characters Brynn and Henrik and is written from the beautiful Valkyrie's POV. It shows her fight to keep Perfekt Control over her growing feelings for hunky Henrik whilst trying to rescue the Goddess Of Love Freya.

Brynn prides herself on her tight control locking her feelings of guilt, fear and her love for Henrik locked up tight in a

Perfect Control is the second book in the AEre Saga, and what a saga it is. Henrik and Brynn are the bodyguards of Tyr the god of war and his girlfriend, human Mia Ahlstrom, we learned about them in Perfekt Order, book 1. ST Bende continues to draw us into her Relms. The book is exciting, it's sweet and it's an adventure. You travel with "Brynrik" into several relms, you feel like you are part of their effort to save the Goddess of Love before the world is impacted adversly. I really enjoyed get ...more

Ahhhhh such a perfekt book it was so glorious it almost made me cry. Poor Brynn going through so much sadness and fear but at the end was able to let it all go and choose love. Brynhildr and Finnea are jealous bitc...... and Freya was all for Brynnrik. This book was an adventure and a romance story well mixed like Henrik Hotcakes. I mostly like this book because it showed realms not showed in the other books before and from what I've gather from this one and perfekt match this is before or durin ...more

Best YA book I've ever read!!!

I have read all of STs other books and this was by far my favorite. I felt so many emotions while reading this amazing book! Suspense, happiness, shock, happy tears and everything in between! ST has this amazing gift of drawing you in and making the character so real that you feel like you know them personally and you even start talking like them! Brynn and Henrik have stolen my heart and I look forward to many more fun stories from them!

This is the second of the series and it just gets better and better. I love how st bende builds on the relationship between the two characters byrnn and henrick and how you. Just want them to be together despite the promises made. The story is brilliant through the different levels and the ending is perfekt. Can't wait till the next one.

Awww it was sooo sweet! I loved Brynnrik!Their dynamic and chemistry were Prefekt. Even when I didn't understand a word they were saying (science is not my fort). I have to say, I loved this book more than the last one (sorry Tyr & Mia, still love you guys). Hope the next is even better.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely love Perfekt Control, the second book in the awesome Aere Saga. This book includes all of the characters from the first book but instead of Mia and Tyr being the focus, it shifts to Brynn and Henrik, who I have to say, we're my favorites from book one.

Its my most favorite of S.T.Bende's books. She outdid herself this time.Its great!We finally get to hear Brynn's, Mia's friend,story. The plot is thick and unique,this book has the perfect mix of romance and action and there's a good level of suspense thrown in. The characters are very well developed and the editing is good too.
I loved Brynn! Even though Brynn is a battle goddess ( a Valkyrie), her struggles, her feelings seem genuine and she feels like a real person. We get

This contains all the characters fro9m Perfekt Order, but focuses on Brynn and Henrik, from Brynn's point of view. Goddess Freya has been kidnapped and is up to our norse friends to get her back before all the worlds loose the ability to love.

Another great book of S.T.Bende from Aere Saga! From the very beginning we jump in to the middle of some good action, it's claiming our undivided attention and not letting it go till the end! Kept me on the edge throughout the whole book. Interesting characters with variety of personalities and abilities. I love Nordic mythology and author is deepening the world of myths so somehow it's becoming your new reality. I highly recommend everyone who love myths and fantasy and S.T.Bende's style of wri ...more

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, S.T. Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (where she became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of McVitie's cookies. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the books of The Elsker Saga (Tur, Elsker, Endre, and Tro) and The Ære Saga (Perfekt Order, Perfekt Control, and Perfekt Balance). ...more
