Goodreads Synopsis:

Nordic Liosálfar Svala and Viggo have been in love for a thousand years. After two years apart Svala turns on her TV to find Viggo in the public light, posing as a movie star. She tries to seek him out and the events that follow forces some deep buried secrets to surface...

Svala and Viggo have spent a hundred lives together over the last thousand years. As Liosálfar, Nordic light fairies, their job is to do good and to uphold a balance in the mortal world. A balance, often compromised by the Döckálfar, Nordic dark fairies.

But even good fairies need incentive.

Svala and Viggo are kept apart each life until they fulfill their assignments. Only when, and if, they succeed are they allowed to be together for whatever period of time the powers that be decides. Sometimes they are together for decades, other times years and during the last union once only three weeks.

In this life, Svala turns on her TV and learns that Viggo has become a popular movie star. This is not only highly unexpected, it indicates something is wrong and that Viggo is attempting to contact Svala before their assignments are carried out, an action which is strictly forbidden.

Svala seeks him out, but not without breaking a few rules of her own, and learning that things are not always as they seem.

I can read anything from a quick read to and full length seems never to end novel.

What was this about? What were the assignments? How do they help to keep the balance between the bad and good fairies? Who are these Dark and Light fairies? How are Nordic Fairies differ from regular ones? If Viggo and Svala stayed together for decades at the time, why are they only talking about marriage now? The thought never crossed their mind in all of the 900 years? Why is being a celebrity bad and immediately sets off red flags, and makes Svala stalk Viggo? Did he violate the rules somehow? Then HOW? And for crying out loud, what are the rules exactly? And if they are supposed to stay away from each other, then how do they have the secret hand motion, which came especially useful when he ran for office? Was he running for office as an assignment, or was it after they completed whatever they needed to complete and finally got together? Oh, and finally, what's Svala's assignment now? Is she even working on one?

Love story had no substance, the characters were not developed and the timeline jumped all over the place. I had a lot of questions and was not sure what was happening after the first few pages, forget about the ending where I just went HUH?! Where was the world building again?

The last straw was when I read this line: "Outside, people hurried past with their suit cases and paper cups, missing the whole point of living". Mind you, here Svala is sitting at some New York cafe with a cappuccino in her hand, looking out the window. So what's the point of living? Sit and drink coffee at an overpriced cafes and look down your nose at people who have to... I don't know, work? The "point of living" was never explained, so I can only draw my own conclusions.

I understand that this is a novella, but really why create this (supposedly) complex world and story and then not explain anything? If there are not enough pages to write everything to make it clear, then maybe Sara Berg needs to re-think what she wants to write.

I first off want to thank the author, Saga Berg, for being so kind to send me a copy of her novella. I was very excited to get this novella, being that I had never heard about it, so it was something new and different for me. I love anything paranormal, so this was right up my alley.

"Svala and Viggo have spent a hundred lives together over the last thousand years. As Liosálfar, Nordic light fairies, their job is to do good and to uphold a balance in the mortal world. A balance, often compromised by the Döckálfar, Nordic dark fairies."

This is a classic love story, but being that they are fairies and they have to do their jobs before they can be together, that is the awesome twist. It seems pretty crappy that you have to do all these assignments and only get sometimes as little as 3 weeks with the love of you life, and really bites that all of a sudden you are 14 again, knowing you have to live so long before you can see your love again.

I really enjoyed this story, I took a little away from my rating ONLY because it was so so short. That was my only issue. I know it is a novella, but this story can be developed into so much more. I am very excited to read the next book in this series, and see what happens with Svala and Viggo! I hope you all do take a chance to check it out!

It was an intriguing story. What would you do for the love of your life? Svala and Viggo choose to make a deal with Liosálfar, Nordic light faeries. In exchange for eternal life they would have to complete missions for the Liosalfar. Once the misions were complete then Svala and Viggo could be together.

It has been two years since Svala has seen Viggo. Then she sees an ad for a movie with Viggo as the star. She doesn't know what is going on? Has Viggo made a deal with Döckálfar, Nordic dark faeries? Who can she trust?

I enjoyed the story. The author does leave us with questions hopefully to be answered in the next installment. I wil be interested to see what happens next.
