's review

it was amazing


This is a novel based on Norse Mythology, which is part of why I ultimately decided to give it a try. Most authors focus solely on Egyptian/Greek Mythology when they write stories like this. I was not disappointed in this novel.

We follow Nora Hunt as she navigates her trials in the world of the Raiders. She has no idea who or what she is, but over time she finds out.

There was so much I loved about this book. The characters were all interesting, and even though it occasionally felt like the plot was obvious, it ended up not being that obvious. Plus, though Nora has abilities that make her slightly more superior, she can't control them. So she really only has a mild edge over everyone else and her perils are still terrifying.

Even though this book is Norse Mythology based, as a reader you don't need to be heavily versed in the mythology. Farah does a wonderful job of explaining the mythologies readers need to know.

I really need the next book. Like, now.
