Author: Karissa Laurel
Genre: New Adult Paranormal
Format: Ebook - ARC
Thoughts: That was such a fun ride! Solina is one of my favorite female characters. She’s not afraid to admit fear but she’s not willing to let it rule her life either. She stands up for what she believes in and won’t back down. Such a great ending! As much as I hate that this series is over I absolutely loved reading it! Other than a few spots of “down time” it was nonstop action and adventure with a bit of romance (finally)near the end. If you’re looking for a modern Norse tale then look no more.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work and chose to write a review.
Molten Dusk, is the perfect marriage of Norse mythology with modern day life, the descendants of the old gods are waging old wars – including the second coming of Ragnarok which will end the world as we know it.
Solina, the heroine, is one of my favourite literary characters of all time. She gets stronger and more worldly with every instalment of this series but she never loses the qualities that made me adore her in the first place – she’s brave, loyal and sensible (which is a greatly underrated quality in a heroine!). She’s becoming more practical as time goes on and she’s taking control of her powers so she can protect herself and those she loves.
Of all the side characters, I think it’s the women that I love the most – they’re all tough and vulnerable in their own ways and nobody treats them as lesser humans because they’re damaged. There’s a lot of love going on in this book (not just the romantic kind) and it hits me in right in the feelings, that said – the romance does amp up a little bit this time round and may I be the first to swoon over Thorin? I speculated in my first review that I may have a slight crush on him, now I’m unrepentantly in love.
The battles in this book are even more dramatic than those in the last two, with all of the characters pitching in to do their part. This means that some of the intrigue becomes a thing of the past when things become clearer so that characters can take action – personally, I savour this part in a series when things become clear so that loose ends can be tied up.
Laurel’s writing style is like wrapping yourself up in a fleece blanket and enjoying a mug of hot chocolate with a shot of something naughty in it – I can’t even put my finger on exactly what it is that appeals to me so much, she has a wonderful storytelling ability and all of her characters are complex and well written.
This is a book that you do need to read in series otherwise you’re missing up on a lot of the plot and tension building, but it’s well worth your time to catch up. If you have so much as a passing interest in Norse mythology or fantasy, you need this series on your bookshelf. I’ll be investing in the print copies soon, the covers are too gorgeous to pass up on!

*I received a free copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed
Solina’s journey is enhanced by a vision quest, which helps her sort out the nightmares she is having and the guilt she feels about her brother’s death. Thorin also shares some of his fond memories as well as heartbreaking times of his past with Solina.
Through it all Solina remains true to herself, meaning she still defies Thorin occasionally. Despite that, they both do their share of saving each other in dire times. Solina knows how Thorin feels about her, but she is strong-willed and won’t admit her emotional walls are crumbling.
There is so much more I haven’t mentioned and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed in “Molten Dusk.” All plot points are tied up nicely with a satisfying ending. I’m not sure if this series is finished though, I can see other stories stemming from this solid foundation.
FYI: “Molten Dusk” is book three in THE NORSE CHRONICLES. I would recommend reading this series in order starting with “Midnight Burning” then “Arctic Dawn.” **Originally written for "BigAl’s Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy.** September 13, 2017
