Review: 5 stars
General: This is the second book in the series. I recommend getting The Fade, and reading it first as they are dependent upon one another. I loved so much about this book. In all honesty my only complaint is the cliffhanger ending.
I love the concept of playing around with mythology, especially Norse as the literary world is so filled with Greek, and I love Norse mythology. The world created seems to be heavily built upon in this novel so world wise, if you skip book one it should not cause any confusion at all. This book did seem to move a tiny bit slow as a lot of it was set upon back story and myth. I loved that concept because it helped me to understand but I also would have liked a little more action/ plot moving forward the whole time.
Characters: Ari- Ari was a very strong and enjoyable female. This book showed her really coming into her own. I think the scenes that showed her interacting with her wolf (no spoilers read to understand!) were the most impactful and entertaining. Although, her chemistry with Dace was very strong.
Ronan- He really seemed to catch my attention in this novel, even though he isn't "the hero". I found his character very compelling and his tension and storylines with both Ari and Dace almost as intriguing as the general plot line.
Dace- Dace faded into the background a little bit for me in this book, I'm not sure how he was in the first though. He was strong, fun and I enjoyed his backstory a lot. He just felt a little too tragic and backseat for me in this novel.
In Fall (The Ragnarök Prophesies #2), A.K. Morgen picks up right where she left off with the first book. And she does this brilliantly. Fade was great, awesome even, and set the bar for this series to be fairly high. Fall is spectacular and continues to raise the bar.
The positives: A.K. Morgen fills in more of the myth background--she really dives in. This book also covers a lot of the relationship between Arionna, Dace and their respective wolves, illuminating just how important they are to each other. Ronan's character is also explored in much more depth, which is very nice.
The negatives: Come on! What's with the cliff hanger? This book left me pining for book three. I guess that should be listed as a positive, as it is a mark of a very good book... But since the sense of pining annoyed me slightly, and it left me wanting to read book three right in the middle of my maternity leave but unable to read book three (because it's still being written and all that)... well, you get what I'm saying.
Fall continues right where Fade finishes; with Arionna recovering in the hospital. Dace is at Arionna's side to help her recover, but Skoll and Hati are still around.
Like book 1, this one was a little heavy on the internal dialogue for my taste. But I like that it delves deeper into Norse Mythology.
It also develops Ronan's character, which I enjoyed. He's a good old fashioned bad boy, with a hidden good guy side.
I wouldn't call this fast paced, in fact, I found the first half a bit slow, but once Arionna leaves with Ronan and Fuki, things start to really get interesting until you reach that cliffhanger ending I mentioned. I flicked the page on my kindle and thought, "No! You can't leave it like that!" It definitely leaves you needing to know what happens next.
