As the debut book for A.K. Morgen, what a way to breakout into the published world. I believe that A.K. Morgen has set the bar fairly high for her subsequent works.
First, the positives. A.K. Morgen's writing style is beautiful and drew me into the story quickly and fully. I dreaded the moments where I had to put the book down - like when I had to do some work or pay a bill. I also love the new perspective on mythology that A.K. Morgen took with this tale. Norse mythology just doesn't get as much coverage as other mythologies, and the author does a good job of grabbing your attention to correct that. The story itself is gripping with just the right balance between mythology and romance. I love the fact that the main characters are not flawless goody-goodies sent on a quest to save the world, but rather they are strong and vulnerable all at the same time. And, as someone who is sick and tired of the skid marks left on the world of literature by works such as Twilight, I love that this is not an easily predictable storytelling.
There were a few negatives. First, the beginning of the book had very familiar rings to it. Young girl suffers through the loss of a parent and is forced to move in with her father, meets a strange young man and becomes obsessed with finding out his truth while he does everything in his power to hide the truth from it. A.K. Morgen does a brilliant job of doing this, but that doesn't change the fact that it's been done before. Also, the idea of an insta-romance doesn't settle well with me-- at least not in a story where there are so many twists and secrets. There is no offer of a foundation other than the two are drawn to each other, which is a little unsettling. Thankfully, this wasn't completely overdone and did not take away from the entire story line.
All in all, the positives of this book far outweigh the negatives. A.K. Morgen has done a wonderful job of bringing Arionna and Dace to life. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
First off, check out the cover work. Isn’t it brilliant? It adds so much appeal to the book and is definitely eye catching for somebody like me who totally judges a book by its cover.
Fade is the first book in The Ragnarok Prophesies series. (You should also check out the second book Fall!!)
Fade is a perfect mix of ancient Norse mythology, romance, shape shifting, and suspense. It has something for everybody!
This book attracts your attention immediately upon reading the first few pages. You will not want to put it down. Arionna and Dace are very likeable characters with some relatable traits and the story moves along quickly. The only bad thing is the cliff hanging ender! If it doesn’t make you want to run out and purchase the second book, Fall, then nothing will.
Seriously, if you love a great book, then you will love this one. If you don’t finish it in one marathon sitting, then you will carry it around with you in your purse (or pocket) until you do!
In the beginning, Arionna, understandably, is pretty depressed after her mother's death. Then she meets Dace. She still struggles through her mother's death, but he helps her see a light at the end of the tunnel, but he also introduces her to a world she has forgotten exists.
I enjoyed this book. I love that it uses Norse Mythology and is based on some familiar characters and legends. I also enjoyed the connection to the wolf pack.
The internal dialogue gets heavy in a few places that, for me, really bogged down the pace and became distracting and repetitive. But at about halfway, this seemed to decrease, and although still present in places, I found it didn't affect the pace too much after that.
Aside from that, the concept if interesting, and often sad in places. I'm looking forward to seeing where the next book goes.
I also really enjoyed reading about all the myths. Not sure if they're real myths or if she made them up . . . I'll have to stop by her blog to ask:-)
One of my favorite lines that made me LOL: Dear God . . . I didn't finish my prayer either. Praying to God for someone you've only just met to . . . oh well, I don't want to spoil it! You just have to read it for yourself!!
I really can't wait to read the next installment in the series. I hope Morgen writes quickly:-)
Overall a very fluid book and look forward to the future interactions with the 'Myths' that are part of our character's everyday life now.
