There was so much going on here, I just couldn't read fast enough to unravel all the mysteries. It reminded me a bit of Robin McKinley or Patricia Briggs (two of my all-time favorite fantasy authors), with layered world-building based off of Norse mythology. The glossary in the back was a nice touch, though I'm pretty sure even with the pronunciation help, I'm saying the names in my head wrong, lol.
Strong, complex characters, intricate storytelling plus that superb world-building all made for an amazing read. If this is what her debut work is like, I can't wait to see what's next. 5+ stars
The story doesn't end on a cliffy, but it left me wanting more of Trygg and Brynn! I hope there's more of them to come.
Kudos to a very well, confidently written debut for this author!
Not a dull moment in the book.
Really looking forward to reading more in this universe.

I can’t even pick one element that I loved the best from this first instalment of, The Ways of Wyrd Series.
The main characters, Trygg and Bryn are so well developed in this story. I felt like I had been reading about them for years. They have such a strong presence, I couldn’t and wouldn’t want either to disappear from this series. There is no Trygg without Bryn and vice versa.
Trygg is super strong even though he’s quite old, something like a few hundred years plus. Yeah, and he’s super hot, he is welcome to visit me anytime. I love the older man (inserted winking face here).
Bryn isn’t a weakling either, she has been taught well to defend herself. She’s a beautiful young woman with many secrets, and she suffers like you wouldn’t believe.
Both her and Trygg are hiding who they really are from each other. It’s only a matter of time before everything comes to light. The past can’t stay in the shadows forever unfortunately.
I’m happy to say that there is no cliffhanger, but you will want more. Us readers always want more. If you love romance and all things paranormal with a twist then this book is a must read for you.
In this we meet Bryn, part Norse royalty, part...darkness, utterly feisty and independent - and prickly. She lives her life on her terms, afraid to let anyone get close, because she's learned at a terrible price that others can’t be trusted. Not even her parents. And maybe not even her bestie. And certainly not the man who melts through her icy core…or can he?
That man is Trygg, a 352yo berserker, who's lived, loved and lost more than once. He’s a contradictory mix of mob enforcer and gentleman lover, and occasionally, sometimes unwillingly, utterly primal. His heritage is complex and dark and he’s laying low for reasons of his own…
Trygg has secrets that rival Bryn’s, and they’re both reluctant to open up and risk themselves, but once they come together, their chemistry takes over. There’s explosions, verbal and physical, and there’s plenty of the sassy and sexy stuff. It's a battle of the sexes tale with intelligence and humour, and with a female lead who’s as strong as the male. And, thank the Norse gods, there’s none of the dreaded 'we're in the middle of danger, but hey, let's just find a convenient nook/cranny/ledge/wardrobe/whatever and have sex' clichés!
Underlying the passion and adventure is a tale that introduces a complex world with intrigue, danger, betrayal, darkness, deceit and secrets. It’s done with passion and great detail, and with a host of characters I wanted to know more about. But, hey, the really good stuff can’t be rushed, so this world unfolds over several tales, though each will be a standalone.
Whilst the tale ends in the start of Bryn and Trygg’s HEA, and whilst there are no cliff-hangers, there’s just enough left slightly untied and untold that makes me impatient for the next.
Disclaimer: I was one of the betas for this tale, and was honoured to be asked. It’s good enough that I went straight out and bought my own copy.
yeah this was the bomb!
This norse mythology novel has it all.
Action. Mystery. Humour. Hot diggity dog sexy times!
Brynn is struggling to escape her past. Trygg wants to save her. Together they attempt to overcome their pasts and their fears and find their way to each other.
Old nemesis's, pasts, a mystery and demons all stand in their way.
Loved this story so much!
I literally laughed, cried, screamed and fanned myself (because 🔥🔥🔥)
This is a must read. 5 stars from me.
I can not wait for more.
