The set-up is that Ragnarök is coming and Erin is the only one who has the slightest chance of stopping it. Stieg is assigned to guard and protect Erin in the hope that she can stop the end of the world, and Stieg can stop Erin from getting ended. And, of course, romance ensues.
Stieg and Erin work. He is quiet and "mean" enough to deal with our lovely Erin, who is basically a dick. She totally is, and enjoys every minute of it. Although the only reason she messes with people is of course, because everyone else "starts it".
This is a fast-paced story with interesting characters and continual action. The series keeps getting better and better and I anxiously await the next book. Thank you Ms. Laurenston for a wonderful, entertaining read.
The scenes surrounding the hit and protection from the vatican types seemed pointless, as did the inclusion of the 4 horsemen. To me the book really takes off when the pair head off too the nine realms--that's when the story starts.
Between the three books in this trilogy (1200 pages) there's really only about 500 pages of worthwhile story, I wish this author would return to her older editor to tighten up her books.
I feel like this is another author who is a victim of her success. They write a few successful novels and get a clause in their contract giving them final edit and all of a sudden the stories unravel, loose ends aren't addressed, scenes that really need to be deleted, aren't. I find it frustrating when the quality of the work of a one beloved author falls.
This book suffers greatly from a massive lack of balance between humor and gravity. When you have a group of people facing the potential end of the world, is there really time to write in scenes that add absolutely nothing to the plot aside from comic relief? I'd say at least six chapters'-worth could easily have been cut out without harming the book as a whole, and that's a BIG problem for me when said book is priced at $9.99. Especially when, as engrossed as I've been in the plot of this series, its climax battle was utterly RUINED in the end by juvenile humor that had no place in the scene. It was a parody. I was so disappointed.
As for the characters, I liked Erin. I felt meh about Stieg. He was a generic male lead with nothing to distinguish him from the other Ravens, aside from the fact that he happens to have a goat as a pet. Seriously, he could have been anyone. Vig had his shyness, Ski kept the peace with his brethren. Stieg just... is. The romance between him and Erin was nonexistent. They were basically battle buddies who had sex. I'm not a fan of purple prose, so I didn't expect or want any, but there was NO hint of deeper emotion from either of them throughout this book. Their first sexual encounter even had a decidedly rapey undertone that left me cold and kind of disgusted.
honestly the only reason I'm giving the book 3 stars instead of 2 or less is because of the side characters. I got to check back in with the previous two couples (still love Ski and Jace), and the other familiar names carried me through to the end. Worth the read to see the series end. Definitely NOT worth the exorbitant $9.99 price tag. My advice: get this one from the library or wait until the price drops to a more reasonable level.
