Christmas time is fast approaching and its the time of year that I like to get in some holiday romances. This one is one of the faves that I have read over the years. First off let me tell you that I love anything based on mythology, Norse and Greek mythology being my favorites. As you might guess from the title, this one is based on Norse gods, with Hela, Loki, and Thor all making appearances. Now these are not the gods of the movies, but based on the actual mythology of old and I love it! Hela ...more

In this fantasy the dragon was so bored it went to sleep, poor baby. Hela is Loki daughter and he truly does not understand her. She craves someone to talk to she is always alone come on even the dragon is sleeping. Hela ask to be human and allowed to fall in love Loki gives her 12 days if she falls she will stay with her lover, but if not? This is a beautiful story, Loki is a jerk and Hela gets him in the end but the drama within is what makes the story. This is a classic tale one that you coul ...more

This was a short read, that I found lacking in a way. Even though the blurb really interested me, I just didn't get what I was expecting. The progression of the relationship was rushed, which is as expected in a short read, but I have read shorter books that actually really sold the relationship. I really liked the god/vikings references but just wanted more. It did read like more of a fantasy book though.

A sweet gem of a book! Loki grants his daughter's wish to experience life among the living and maybe find love? Hela is ported to a forest in Midgard and rescued by the jarl's son Bjorn who takes her back to his village. A mutual attraction and Bjorn's need for a wife puts these two on a fated path in spite of interfering gods. Very entertaining story.

This book is a quick read with Viking elements that seemed well thought out by the author. Some books don't do due diligence when referencing historical facts, to me, this book did. The characters were fleshed out in typical quick read style and the story was interesting enough to finish. I liked the book!
