    I received this book awhile back from a goodreads giveaway. I enjoy reading about and watching anything to do with Norse Culture and Vikings so of course I was interested in reading this book, a man named Gabe meets a woman named Maija who looks basically similar to his partner Jane. Maija is a viking warrior who rejected the idea of sitting in Valhalla with Odin and is instead whisked through time to modern day New York. Two murders, bring them together and suddenly the world as Gabe knows it is I received this book awhile back from a goodreads giveaway.

Maija is a viking warrior who rejected the idea of sitting in Valhalla with Odin and is instead whisked through time to modern day New York. Two murders, bring them together and suddenly the world as Gabe knows it is thrown all out of whack. I enjoyed the storyline, but found I was let down slightly as I got further into the story. I felt like as I kept reading through some things came into the picture and gave us some insights to a person or idea and then there were things where we were so overloaded (I felt) with information of things around them or descriptions that I was almost skim reading to get the more important parts. The suddenly mixture of Adam and Eve and the Bible seemed to add another layer of confusion as well on top of events that seemed to be rushing through and suddenly happening then moving to the next. I thought Maija would end up being my favorite character, but felt she seemed too 'bad-ass' character that when the 'emotional' moment for her came up it didn't really effect her much at all. Gabe came across to me as a constantly lost puppy who did at some point stand up and take charge he was a bit wussy to me, I was expecting him to suddenly have a realization and 'man-up' in a way. There were a few errors of grammar and spelling, but that is more of a pet-peeve from me (It also could be that I won a unedited version, I'm not sure as it's not stated). So in the end, after nearing the end and pushing myself through it I gave it two stars.

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, and it arrived just one week before my birthday so it was definietly good timing. Why the 2 stars? Here's what I liked: the plot is promising and I could very well imagine this book either as a movie or a TV serie. Reading it gave me the feeling of watching it on screen and without a doubt it'd make a good movie. It'd have been nice to know more of the characters' background also. I especially liked Gabe's character and his character was the one developed I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway, and it arrived just one week before my birthday so it was definietly good timing.

I especially liked Gabe's character and his character was the one developed the most. I also kind of liked Jane. I'm very much into Norse mythology myself so I welcomed the presence of Norse gods and Valhalla, all set in the heart of New York. But there were some things I disliked: Maija's character didn't impress me much, I'd have loved to know more about Bloodback and Bryn, and there was a part which got me confused and surely way a mistake: in one of the later chapters where the three sisters appear, Fenja is the one who's introduced as the pregnant one but a few pages later it's Hildr who gives birth to the baby (and who is the baby actually?). I also didn't like the Pagan Viking/Christianity mashup and Odin as a descendant of Adam. Definietly not the different cultures appearing in Valhalla. It'd have been nicer to keep it all Viking, but this is the Pagan speaking from me. All in all, I'm glad that I had the chance to read this book, and if this story ever appeared on TV I'd love to see the characters come to life in modern day New York.
