For Thor to live, Thunder Hunter must die.
A thousand years, that's how long I've been hunting the Fallen Ones that escaped Freya's field. One-hundred and ninety-five down, five to go. Just five disgusting evil spirits until I die and Thor's thunder will be returned to him. Nothing will stand in the way of me completing my mission, not even the woman who claims to be a descendant of Freya. I will kill the next Fallen One, no matter what.

This was an interesting book. There is Norse mythology & magic Trygger is the grandson of Thor. He is tasked with retrieving two hundred souls that have escaped. The story starts then it fast forwards about a thousand years when only the last five souls are missing.
The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. His female voices were ok which is the case with several male narrators.
I found the main character a bit annoying at times. He has lived a thousand years and treats women like sex objects. The story jumps around some but it was not too hard to keep up.
I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. Hopefully, he will have a bit of a change of heart on how he views women!

I loved the main character"Thunder Hunter" . He is so jaded and hardened by his situation that when the woman is thrust into his life he is outraged. Of course he overcomes and the two make a cool pair. Plenty of action and packed with great characters and good narration, I recommend it to any paranormal romance fan.

I'm an avid reader/listener very eclectic in my books. From classics too erotica to young adult, I love paranormal, futuristic and fantasy.
The story is enjoyable, though Triggers attitude was a bit annoying.
Oh my where to start. The voices for Trigger and Chloe sounds like there from the slums of London. After 1000 years and being Viking raised, I don't believe he'd sound like that. Chloe is over 200 also raised somewhere else I don't remember where, well educated and so nope wouldn't sound like that.
When I got past the wrong voices for characters the narrator was fun to listen to.
There's a 5 second or so spot where it skips a little, dang I can't remember where.

I loved the mix of present day and Norse mythology. Everything that Trigger has gone through and how he just picks up and keeps moving even though he never asked for this is pretty awesome. I really enjoyed listening to Ian Fisher, Because while he used different accents and voices it was done really well and flowed naturally. After this I want to listen to/ read the rest of the Viking Soul series.
This book centers around the main lead, Trygger, who has been given the task or rather mission of smiting down
all of the "evil ones".
The concept was interesting but the book was slow in certain parts.
Overall, a mildly entertaining weekend read and I am interested in the other books in this trilogy.
Ian Fisher did well with the narration.

I have both read the ebook and listened to the audiobook. Although I found the concept of the story intriguing, I found the part about training Freya's descendant slow and boring. However, since this is the first book in the series, perhaps this is background that will make succeeding books more enjoyable. Perhaps it was needed to make the rest of the trilogy more understandable. As when I read the book, I found the character of Jack to be the most humorous and enjoyable.
I did enjoy the book more in audiobook format than just reading the ebook, so the narration definitely improved the book for me.
I would recommend this audiobook for someone who enjoys mythology/fantasy stories. It IS a good listen. I just didn't feel like there was any real threat or challenge to Trigger, and I didn't find myself really caring that much about the characters or how it ends. There is really no depth of character or emotional growth. It's just a good casual read/listen.
I received a copy of this audiobook free from the author. This is my honest, voluntary review.
I read all kinds of books, but I have an obsession with paranormal and fantasy at the moment. Sorry about any spelling mistakes/typos.
Possibly before listening to the next book in the series if it's a while before I get to it. I think this might be a book where details I didn't pay much attention to the first time come into play in later books, and that will cause me to re-listen.
I don't re-listen very often, there are too many new books waiting for me to get to them.
I loved his voice, very smooth and nice to listen to, he did a good job with the characters voices, even the female voices worked well.
Yep, gave up some sleep to finish this one before going to bed, I had to know how it ended. Now I need the next book.
There was a small problem with the production in chapter 5 of the recording, there was 5-10 second of skipping in the first 2 minutes.
This book builds a good case of lead characters.
Trigger is the Thunder Hunter and it revolves around him, he's on a mission and after a millennium he;s been sent help.
Chloe has been sent to help, but at first it's not clear what she's going to be able to do to help, that will change, but she makes some rash decisions sometimes which makes for some interesting outcomes.
Jack is someone who could be playing both sides but so far it seems he's on the side of 'good', I suspect he'll keep things interesting.
The interactions between the three of them are amusing.

The book started out great; Ian Fisher really brings a strong vocal talent, giving real life to the characters. I did find that (like most male narrators) his feminine voices can be a little off but that is to be expected. Overall I enjoyed the narration, good, not the best, also not the worst either.
The story on the other hand was....lacking. I appreciate all of the work that goes into making a story, fleshing out characters, greeting a plot and following thru with all of them to the inevitable conclusion...this story was just all over the place. The main character who fights Loki hundreds of years in the past is sent to live like a Highlander hunting down Nordic demons with no problems until he's on to the last few. I love historic retellings of viking warriors sacking towns and conquering the lands of ancient times, but you're going to tell me this guy lives thru centuries with time and societies advancing and progressing and still looks at every woman like they're another sexual conquest? I wouldn't think so.
Good read if you're looking for mindless action.
I will look forward to more from
Rachel Medhurst and Ian Fisher
"The Blood of Thor cleansing the world of evil"
I really liked how Trygger warmed up to and trained Chloe.I mean how do you say no to a Goddess?
Thats quite difficult but if I had to Id say some elements were like Cassandra Clare's Mortal instruments series in the way that there is a shadow world and only a specific weapon can vanquish the evil.In this case send the Dark evil spirits back to Freya's fields where they escaped from a thousand years ago.Trygger ( Thor's Grandson ) is tasked by Freya to do this,If he does then he may die as a mortal and come to live with the Gods.This happens after Loki's plot to kill his foster brother Thor and steal his thunder goes awry .It has the Dark under word of London that the Fallen ones(evil dudes)run around in .that is until Trygger catches up to them...95 down 5 left to go.
What I did enjoy of course is the performance, there are some narrators who you know aren't going to let you down. Their voices, attention to tone and story telling are great, you can put the book on and know you're getting the right everything for your money.

"Vikings, Gods and evils in today's world."
I did not quite know what to expect when I started listing to this book, what I got was an awesome story following the tea drinking Viking the Thunderhunter. Rachel Medhurst crafts an interesting world where the Gods and evil things that go bump in the night can meddle in the world and people's lives.
Ian Fisher got the narration just right, the main character's voice is just perfect for them and as they are the viewpoint character it enhances the whole experience.
All in all an interesting listen, I am more than happy with the time I spent listing to this book.
The main plot of the book is resolved nicely but enough is left open to leave me wanting to findout what happens in the next book. A strong start to the Viking Soul Series.
