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
So many interesting well developed characters. Brynn was a bada$$ with a sarcastic wit but flawed and vulnerable too. Trygg was so hot, his inner conflict resonated so much with me, fighting your own demons. Lots of fun side characters, that I hope have the potential for starring roles later on.
The storytelling was on point, easy to read and understand, with perfect pacing to keep you on the edge of your seat. All at once you could be scared to turn the page, afraid of what might happen next, and desperate to turn and find out. This is an amazing debut book, and I can’t wait for more!!
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!
Weaving in all the levels of Norse mythology only adds to the story and makes for a fast read which keeps you hungry for more. Twist is just the beginning of the story. Keep feeding us Friel.
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.

Bryn and Trygg are fantastic characters and the romance is sizzling hot.
Love the Norse mythology setting. Brings something unique to the PNR genre.
