Publisher's Summary

For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates….

Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task. And no one has a heart more guarded than Arienh, who has sacrificed her own happiness for the good of her village. She and Ronan are unlikely lovers, forged in dangerously opposite worlds - yet bound together by strength, sacrifice, and an undeniable passion.

    "I wish this was a series! I didn't want it to end!"
    What did you love best about Loki's Daughters?

    Usually, I am a terrible sucker for Scottish Highland romance novels but this book has got me stuck on Vikings!


    What about Sarah Coomes’s performance did you like?

    Sarah Coomes is DEFINITELY one of my very favorite narrators! Her range for different accents is surprising! She always makes the performance very believable and makes me fall in love with the characters!

    "Real characters and a great story."

    I have only recenty discovered Delle Jacobs. The two books I have read of hers are Romance but so much more. Loki's Daughters has a very real and believable setting with honest characters. The plot is traditional in many aspects, but it also has enough nuances to keep the listener engrossed. While the narrator isn't the best ever, she's easy enough to listen to. I bought it during a sale, so it was under $10, but I would have been happy to use a credit for it.

    "Was repetitive and boring***"
    Would you try another book from Delle Jacobs and/or Sarah Coomes?

    I like Sarah Coomes as a narrator. The story was lacking. The main character just needed to tell her beau the truth. It seemed like the same thing kept happening over and over. The book didn't start going anywhere til the last 20 minutes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Delle Jacobs again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

    I like her as a narrator.


    Did Loki's Daughters inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "It wasn't that good..."

    I picked this one up in the hidden gem sale, and I kinda wish I didn't. It had potential but it didn't hit the mark.
    A small Celtic village off the Irish coast was raided by Vikings, it left the village in ruin with pretty much no men left. So ten years later women are trying to survive and keep the village going with no luck they collectively can't handle men's work along with their women's work simultaneously. One day the Viking's return or what the women think are Vikings, really just Norsemen to setting in the village and help the Celtic women. The Norsemen are perfect gentlemen helping out with everything and bringing the village and land back to life and all the Celtic women can do is play silly pranks on the men and call them heathen Vikings. It pretty much goes on like this through the whole book. The pranks really just reminded me of college greek week, when sororities and fraternities would prank each other, it was that silly.
    It comes out that Ronin the leader of the Norsemen was at the village raid 10 years ago and saved Arienh the ringleader of the Celtic women from being raped from the Viking chasing her that night. He came back for her wanting her to be his wife and she just asks like a totally brat towards him even though she gave up her V-patch to him pretty early on in the book. Once you do that you are considered married and therefore Arienh has no legs to stand on to be such a brat. The whole book is the women struggling to accept the men and once they do...the book is over. I found it rather dull and recommend passing this one over.

    Story
    "Like Listening to Bad TV"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    There was no depth to the story or the characters. It was like watch bad TV when you are home sick. It is mildly entertaining, but only slightly better than silence.


    Has Loki's Daughters turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine.


    What character would you cut from Loki's Daughters?

    There were many poorly developed characters. I wouldn't cut them, I would give them more depth.


    Any additional comments?

    In the end, it was just dumb.

    "surprisingly good"

    I am a military history buff. I read this book out of a diversionary break. I bought it on recommendations and found that it was quite interesting and the narrator was really awesome. Not a work of art by any means but a nice change-up!

    "The story takes you there!"

    I'm sure I'd recognize the landscape of this story, so well is it evoked. I loved the story, even though the story line is a bit predictable. If she wrote another episode I'd buy it.
