For the last month, Phoebe has been training in the Valkyrie stronghold readying for battle. But when she stumbles into a secluded valley after a day of grueling practice, she's given a dire prediction. Phoebe must leave the stronghold immediately with the aid of the giant, Junnal, to rescue her mother from the dark elves. If Phoebe fails, Leela will be transported to a place that can no longer be reached.
Leaving Fen behind threatens to undo her, but Phoebe stays true to the mission. Along the way, she allies with the god Baldur and an old white elf mage. Together, they storm the realm, and with the help of an angry wolf and her Valkyrie sisters, they just might stand a chance to free the valiant shieldmaiden. But Phoebe soon learns that rescuing her mother comes with a price, and she's about to lose something too precious to sacrifice.

Love the voices/accents she does!
Loved this book! Really hoping the Norns get their butts handed to them soon! They are truly evil hags! I adored the new characters we met in this book as well, can't wait for book 3!
Yes. Having an auditor put voices to the characters gives them a personality that I couldn't in my own mind.
Baldur god of light. His sense of humor and life is contagious.
When Callan and Ray meet.
Yes. Made me laugh, cry, smile and ache.
this story is great. I'm really hooked. I'm invested and can't wait to find out what happens next. she is surrounding herself with amazing friends and family. I love all the characters. the narration was fabulous. I would recommend this book to friends.
I love reading! I also love looking for mistakes in what I'm reading.
Yes, I feel like I rarely come across a good series, or soon to be series; but after reading book 1 I knew this one was for me. The story, overall, is very unique and I can't think of any other series/story that is similar. Can't wait for book 3!
I'm not sure how you spelled his name but the troll/ogre mix guy. He appeared as the bad guy at the beginning but then did a 180 and helped Phoebe throughout the rest of the story, well into book 2.
I wasn't sure about Emma Wilder's performance in the first story, but she ended up growing on me. She's very 'into' the story, if you know what I mean. Unlike some narrators that read in a monotone/I don't care what I'm reading kind of way, Ms. Wilder did a great job.
She narrated a wide range of characters in this book and all of them in a great way.
The fight scenes were well narrated, they made me feel like I was in the middle of the action.
What I most liked about Emma's work was her narration of the villains in the book. Chilling !
The tenderness and emotion while mother and daughter unite, the sadness while a character fulfills its destiny, you ache and cheer for Phoebe and her family.
All the emotions the books stirs in you due to the good writing and narration.
The series is fast paced.
There is non stop action. But in this book, we get so much more depth.
I naturally loved the fight scenes, the world building and the Norse mythology thrown in .
I loved seeing Phoebe train to be a Valkyrie. She needs to work and improve in order to be a worthy warrior and capable enough to rescue her mother.
As much as the fighting and political intrigues entertained me, moments like Phoebe reuniting with her mother were the heart of the story.
Freed is also a story about a human adjusting to the reality not just being a warrior but a Valkyrie at that.
And amidst all the war ,Gods and mayhem , Phoebe and Fen added a touch of romance to the book .
If you like action, myths , romance and adventure, this series is for you.
I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.
The story is unique and quirky and interesting, it keeps you guessing on what is going to happen next as it twists and turns.
The narration is first class, the character voices are great and the over all delivery really brings the story to life.
Yes to both, this is a requirement to get a 5 star review out of me.
I liked book one, but I really loved book two, I'm totally enthralled and now I need book three!
This is a series that needs to be listened to in order so if you haven't listened to book one yet, go get that one first.
This series is perfect for any reader/listener who loves mythology mixed in with their stories.
