Gods. Always ready to screw you.

When Bix the Gatekeeper is summoned from exile a hundred and seventy years early by the goddess of the Norse Under World, the former Dark Ops agent knows there’s a catch. On the surface, the terms of the deal are simple. Someone attacked the pantheon’s ambassador to the Mid Worlds and left the ambassador in a coma. In exchange for early paro

I loved Krantz' Larcout, so when I learned about her new Urban Fantasy series I immediately ordered The Burned Spy.

And what a cool read!

Bix is a powerful heroine, but ten years of exile have taken their toll and left her with some vulnerabilities and a lot of enemies. As she tries to find out who attacked Mirri she stumbles from one dangerous situation into the next. There wasn't a dull moment in this book.

I really liked the world building. All pantheons seem to be present, although because Bix

If you've ever wondered if there's such a thing as a retina-searing book cover, there is. Right here.

The cover is also a clue - don't expect subtle and moderate content. Expect insanity, bold characters, and unexpected twists and turns.

Bix the Gatekeeper is a former Dark Ops agent, currently living in exile. Unexpectedly, she's summoned by Hel who offers her a chance to get early parole. She needs to drag a soul to Hel - pantheon's ambassador was attacked in the Mid World an

Immersing! The Burned Spy by K.A. Krantz delves into a new world filled to the brim with all the creatures you have come to love in a good fantasy. I have a bit of a crush on Bix! Can she get any cooler. I love the complexities of her relationships and how she maneuvers the dangers in her world. Strong set of characters help carry this story and add dimension. I can't wait to learn more. Tobek is dreamy and I can't wait to see just how their relationship develops. Give me a bearded, tattooed, no ...more

Having long been interested in Norse history, and a lover of Nordic Noir, I was very keen to read this story. As this is the foundation novel in this series, it gets off to a slow start as the author explains the differences between the world we know, and this world.

Bix has been released from prison, given an impossible task with a time limit to match. As she scrambles to solve the crime, the supporting characters help bring the story to life. These supporting characters (who I won’t mention by

I will not make a little summary of the book in this review, instead i will write what i think about this book.
Its a crazy non-stop adventure about Bix in this magical world, that the reader doesn´t even know when or if it exists. it`s a bit rough at the beginning with all the new mystical things and persons but if you grasp the story then you can go a bit with the flow when Bix starts analising in her head all the steps she goes through to find the final culprit.
The book is nicely written. I

This one was recommended to me from a friend. It took me a bit to understand the politics of this world, but the actions and characters were so worth it. Can not wait for the next installment. Bix is a real life kick ass woman. The plot twists and turns and you really have to keep up with everything that is going on and pick up clues. The other characters in the book are just as interesting as Bix is. I just hope in the next book, more about the competing factions is revealed. This book is well ...more

It’s an interesting story and new world. I will be reading the next in the series. My lower stars are for the clarity. The story throws you into the world with very little background or port in the storm. It takes awhile until you can get into the flow and understand enough to follow what’s going on. This happens throughout the book, where you are a little lost as to everything that’s happening due to clarity on abilities. Things aren’t introduced enough to follow and you have to piece it togeth ...more

Bix has been recalled from exile to the ether for a botched ops job where all her people were killed. Hel has tasked her to find the killer of her pantheons goddess and Bix's lover. Bix has 7 days before her life is forfeit. What she discovers goes deeper than she could have imagined. Everyone is suspect, assassins are out to get her. Betrayal, action, Gods, dragons, angels, mythological creatures. Excellent, unique paranormal. Loved all the secondary characters, great magic, LOTS of mystery and ...more

I’m not a big fantasy reader, but I know the author and I was really curious to read what she wrote. Scared, too. My curiosity doesn’t always bode well for me (or the author) when I read outside my favorite genre. In this case, I’m glad I caved. This was enjoyable. And yes, I will definitely read the next in the series. I liked Bix.
