Publisher's Summary

When Phoebe Meadows gets struck by a strange light in the stock room of Macy's, life as she knows it flies out the window. As if being hit by lightning isn't bad enough, she's accosted in the subway by a man with a missing hand, arrives home to find a raven on her kitchen counter, and her neighbor Ingrid shows up dressed like a gladiator, hell-bent on protecting her.
Before Ingrid can shuttle her off to safety, Phoebe is kidnapped and tossed into one of the Nine Worlds, where she's quickly forced to come to terms with what she is: a Valkyrie. The only problem is, she has no idea what that means.
After a narrow escape, she finds an unlikely ally in Loki's son, Fenrir. Together, the Valkyrie and the wolf must battle their way back to New York City and reach the Valkyrie stronghold where Ingrid is waiting for her. But with danger and obstacles at every turn, Phoebe might not live long enough to learn the full truth about who and what she really is.

Action-packed

Since the Norse mythology is new to me I felt this was a fresh and different urban fantasy. It had a lot of action and great characters. Emma Wilder did a great job with the voices. I'll be getting book 2 next.
I think I'm suppose to state that I won the audible copy of this book in a contest. I joined the contest because I loved the Jessica McClain books and have all the ones available at audible.

A good read.

I love this authors Jessica McClain series and on seeing she had a new one out, I just had to read it!!!

Phoebe is a normal girl, until the day she is struck by lightening. From that day on, she finds out that her neighbour and friend, is her aunt, she is being hunted by the fates, she is in fact a daughter of a Valkyrie and her father is a God!! Then to cap everything off, she is trapped in one of the nine worlds with Lokis son!! How can she escape an inescapable place, one where Fenrir was placed as his prison??

What an intense and fast paced read. This was chock full of action adventure, but best of all, Norse mythology!! I absolutely loved the authors take on Odin, Loki, Fenrir and the Valkyries. The Norse gods are sadly lacking in YA and Urban Fantasy books.

Phoebe was an awesome heroine. I loved the fact that she was so inclined to not believe what was happening to her and questioned everything, though I'm tired of the MC being super powerful or "the chosen one", it get's old!! Why can't they just be normal in an extraordinary world ;) Anyway, I really liked Phoebe. She was smart, sassy in a way and not afraid to do what was needed. I think it was her innocence that really made me feel for her.

Fen was definitely swoon worthy, though I hated that they had the "instant connection". That again get's old quickly!! I loved the authors take on him and why he was locked away!! Need to see more of him in the next book.

In all this was an awesome read. Plenty of action, incredibly fast paced and totally engaging, this is a must read. I can't wait for book 2 to see where this story goes.

Emma Wilder was good, not quite there yet, but I think with practice she will become great! She had a decent amount of tones and voices but she didn't preform the book as well as I hoped. I wanted her to portray the tenseness more and really bring this to life! I will try this narrator again to see if she gets better!
