Between the Blade and the Heart is the first book in a brilliant new young adult fantasy duology inspired by Norse mythology by New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking.

As one of Odin's Valkyries, Malin's greatest responsibility is to slay immortals and return them to the underworld. The balance of the world rests on her ability to carry out orders. But when Malin discovers that her mother spared the life of an immortal who was destined to die, her world is thrown into chaos.

As Malin wrestles with the knowledge that her mother might not be who she thought, she’s also thrust into the path of a gorgeous blue-eyed guy named Asher who needs her help slaying the rogue immortal who destroyed his family. Malin, along with her best friend and her ex-girlfriend, must decide where her loyalties lie...and whether helping Asher enact his revenge is worth the risk—to the world and to her heart.

Kelly | 1373 comments I’ve read 13 chapters and I’m liking it! Here are my thoughts so far:

Chap 2 - (view spoiler)

Chap 10 - Well, the first meeting with Asher was pretty interesting. ^^ (view spoiler) I’m intrigued now. (view spoiler)

Chap 11 - (view spoiler)

Chap 12 - (view spoiler)

Chap 12 - (view spoiler)

The world is so inventive. I’ve never read something similar (the animals, the food, the different immortals, etc.) And the classes she has to take seem cooler than mine ;). Divinity and Immortality? Yes, please.
