Editorial Reviews


"Delle Jacobs has written an extraordinary novel that will take you back, make you cheer first for the women and their proud stand. Then the men and their gentle hopes, and passionate needs. It will melt your heart, make your soul tingle and long for such passion while laughter at the antics of the trouble making women will echo around you. Loki's Daughters rates a definite four stars, not just for the quality of the story, but the engaging, smooth flow of the plot and characters, the rich detail and imagination that has went into it. And the superb style of writing that keeps you engrossed from first page to last." Reviewed by Shadoe for Romancing the Web, 4 stars

About the Author

A native of Illinois, Delle Jacobs has been crafting stories since the tender age of four. She earned a degree in geography from the University of Oklahoma and worked as a cartographer until eventually becoming a social worker specializing in troubled teens and families. Everything changed, however, once she began writing books in 1993, and by 2004, literary success convinced her to quit her day job and focus full time on writing. She is a seven-time finalist for the Romance Writers of America s Golden Heart Award, which she won an unprecedented three times, in addition to numerous other writing awards for her novels, including His Majesty, the Prince of Toads, Lady Wicked, Sins of the Heart, and Aphrodite s Brew. Along the way she discovered a knack for designing e-book covers, which is a great way to get her creative juices flowing when her book characters are being particularly uncooperative. She lives today in southwest Washington State with her family.

Sarah Coomes trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and spent three blissful years there, learning how to cry, speak Shakespeare, and stage fight like a tiger. She is a comedienne and an actress, appearing in numerous television shows in England, including a recurring role as Nurse Leonard in the popular series "EastEnders". She won the 2008 Westminster Prize for her play "Hookie" and an AudioFile Earphones Award for her narration of "The Unforgotten Coat" by Frank Cottrell Boyce in 2011.

By S. Wharton on January 2, 2005
LOKI'S DAUGHTERS is an absolutely captivating historical romance. It is set in the 9th century in a land called Cumbria, and filled with desperate Celtic warrior women, murderous, vile Vikings, and (though it may seem a contradiction in words) brave, honorable Norsemen. The story opens with Arienh, the female protagonist, traveling to a hill to count ancient stones which serve as a calendar of sorts for her village. On her way, she encounters a fearsome Norseman whom she believes to be a Viking. She hates Vikings because her village has suffered greatly at their hands. All of the men in her village, except one old man, have been either brutally killed or captured as slaves by the savage race. Moreover, her sister, Birgit, was raped, impregnated, and struck on the head by a savage Viking during one to their pillaging raids, causing her to slowly go blind. For all of these reasons, Arienh hated all Vikings, except one - the one Viking boy who saved her life ten years ago during a raid by hiding her from the other savage ones. All of the other Vikings she had ever met had always sought to kill and destroy all her village ever had.

She instantly recalls how they killed her father, brother, uncle, cousin and how they captured her other brother to sell into slavery. She is determined to prevent this Viking, upon whom she has suddenly stumbled, from harming anyone else in her village. Arienh knows that she must warn her village by sounding the alarm. She attempts to flee, but the man has already seen her and chases her, trying to stop her flight. He catches her hair and pulls her into his arms. In the ensuing struggle, she stabs him in his gut with her knife. Shock runs through both the man and Arienh.

I stayed up until the early hours of the morning reading this book. The characterizations are wonderful. Jacobs doesn't shy away from the hard emotional issues facing her characters and their relationships. Arienh and her sister still suffer the emotional and physical wounds of the last Viking raiders. Now a new group of Vikings has arrived led by Ronan who claims he and his men merely want to farm the land and take agreeable wives. But Arienh has seen only brutality from Vikings and distrusts his attempts to help her and her village.

Jacobs's writing is just gorgeous. She has a gift for describing the landscapes of Celtic Cumberland, as well as the human heart. The subplot of Arienh's sister made me cry.

I highly recommend this book. It's a tender story of love and healing.

Also, Loki's Daughters contains the funniest scene I have ever read in romantic fiction.

Set in a time on the cusp between the Dark Ages and Medieval Times, LOKI'S DAUGHTERS tells a tale for all times and seasons. A story of women who have had to learn to live without men, and of a band of Northmen who just want to make love, not war. The juxtaposition of the women's well-justified terror--they've lost all but one eccentric old man in their village to Viking invaders--and the newcomers' desires for safe haven and wives, not necessarily in that order, is highly dramatic, beginning with the heroine very nearly killing the hero and then, when finding herself unable to finish him off, discovering a man of warmth and humor, even in the face of death.

Ms. Jacobs paints a portrait of the ninth century as if she'd actually lived it. LOKI'S DAUGHTERS should appeal to the most fastidious historians, as well as to romance lovers, who will enjoy not just one, but multiple, romances facing the almost insurmountable conflict of turning hate and fear to love.

AUTHOR: This is my 1st time reading one of Delle Jacob's books. I'm not impressed with "LOKI's DAUGHTERS". I found the content to be repetitive. If romance books provided (3) separate layers of "something that you can sink your teeth into", this book only made it to the first layer. I never give up on an author and "fully" intend and look forward to reading another book by Delle. I want to be fair.

Many years ago the Celtic village was attacked by Vikings. A handful of women, children and one elderly man managed to hide themselves and survived. One young girl was hidden by a young Viking boy during the attack. Now as an adult, the Viking returns to seek his love, the young woman that he rescued so many years ago.

PASSION SCALE: This book gets (2) ASTERICK because the level of being argumentative takes away from the passion found in the romantic parts of the book. Intimacy is few and far between.
* NOT very descriptive and requires imagination
** WILL make you wiggle a little)
*** WISH it was me;
**** OH BODY, whew;
***** EROTICA and well over the top

FAVORITE PART: Feathers everywhere and how they got there.

LEAST FAVORITE PART: Arienh's totally over cooked and over done character page after page after page.

YOU WILL LIKE THIS BOOK IF YOU LIKE: Historical romance, Vikings, Celts

This book gets TWO Stars. Romance books = 2 central characters, 1 male, 1 female......we have that;
One or both of the main characters are in peril........nope not per se; They work together to resolve the situation......nope; The perilous situation brings them together........nope not from the point of working together during a perilous situation but they do come together.....eventually.
