The sagas claim you can’t fight fate. I’m determined to prove them wrong.

They say your twenties are supposed to be the best years of your life.

Clearly, they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Because right now, my life is in shambles. As the daughter of one of the most powerful berserkers in the world, I should be taking my place among the noble guild of berserker

This was good yet theres something overall off missing or odd about it that leaves you unsatisfied... so it gets a 3 star average usually any norse related academy romance stuff is an almost certain 4 or favourite but yeah this feels like it fell short and went with a whimper when it promised a bang and the romance was like idk like disappointing like i liked the dude for the first couple scenes but then its like he became a different younger jerkier selfish insincere fuckboy rather than ...more

The story opens with Elin approaching BjØrneskalle Castle, home to the Berserker Academy (think of it as an assassin’s university), in a car with her father. The tension in the story builds as they get nearer and nearer – A fantastic hook in! It had me. I needed to find out what was going to happen and what this Berserker Academy was all about.

Elin is our POV character: She comes across as sweet, yet powerful and was easily likeable. Elin mother was a nymph, so she’s half Fae – She soon finds

I love anything fantasy and romance related, and Amy Pennza did not disappoint - I could not put this book down and ended up reading it in one sitting! I have never read a book about Norse mythology, so this was an uncharted territory for me, but from the very start I was pulled into this new unfamiliar world of different gods, deities and powers. The book was well written and easy to read. There was a perfect mix of action and romance, and the plot was interesting all the way through. The ...more

Rcvd an advanced reader copy from the author for giving my two cents. What a page turner. We meet Elin, being thrown to the wolves so to speak when her father drops her off at the Berserker academy. She has brought shame to his household and cant get rid of her fast enough. Being part nymph, Elin is bullied by her fellow students calling her a half breed but in a battling class smtg happens and a tall dark and handsome stranger saves the day...only to learn it is the headmaster...just great. ...more

“Unfocused, emotional and flighty” are but a few shortcomings on the long list defining Elin’s flaws in the opinion of her father, Rage Lord Harald Berregaard. Consequently, she’s been sent to the Berserker Academy to complete her training – where you vow to die if you fail. No pressure whatsoever! I enjoyed Elin’s character along with her determination to succeed despite the odds stacked against her. I found the quest she undertook with the headmaster, Hauk Sigridsson to be an interesting blend ...more
What's a berserker?

I'm not entirely sure how to rate this one. I mean, the writing was alright, and some parts of the story were interesting, but then as a whole, it seemed a bit jumbled.

At first, I thought this was going to be an academy book with its mean girls and training scenes, but that aspect was quite quickly forgotten. And then I thought it was perhaps a fae-fantasy adventure book, but then the oddly BDSM/erotica sex scene happened ("sex juices in butt cracks and milking every drop"

The perfect title, I say, for the story of such an intrepid kickass heroine who really kept the storyline flowing and so full of conflict! I loved reading this! The heroine Elin discovers her true heritage and finds her true mate while slowly unraveling the diabolical plots of her dastardly father. An intriguing thriller full of action, suspense, and deadly danger as well as the passionate and steamy love of newly found soul mates. Now this is a story that I will definitely read again!

I want to begin this review by just saying wow! The attention to detail and the clear research that went into this book was incredible. I did get a bit confused by some of the names and phrases used In the book, but my Norse mythology isn’t very good (everything I know is from marvel movies...). I loved the plot and the authors writing style. The epilogue was also incredible and just the little extra bit I needed, although I would be happier if the story just kept going. Can’t wait to read more ...more

I was not sure what to expect from this book, but I am glad I decided to read it. It was a fun read full of action, tragedy, love, and unexpected twists!
The story takes you for an unexpected journey. You may think you know what will happen, but you have no idea. This is one of those books that really takes the unexpected to another level. No matter your great mystery solving skills, this book will have you beat!
So worth the read and journey!

This was a fun and exciting adventurous story. Elin was dropped off at the Berzerker academy because she constantly failed her fathers attempts to have her taught to hone her skills. No one wanted her there because she was part nymph. Hauk was the headmaster and there were definitely sparks as Elin and he embarked on a journey together. Good story

I liked this one. It's not as good as the first book in her Lux Catena series. I keep reading her books hoping they will be similar to that one. The storyline and mythology of this book is well thought out and explained but the romance is a little too instalove for me and the depth of the hero is lacking... I still read the book quickly and didnt lose interest.
