Publisher's Summary

The Valkyrie Kara stood alone against the Ragnarok horde on Earth to ensure that the Asgard race and Valhalla could escape. For 5,000 years she has fought and evaded the Ragnarok race on Earth, just waiting for her people to return. A human woman, Kate, joins her fight, showing as much conviction and valor as any Valkyrie. Their friendship quickly becomes something more as they hold the line on Earth in battle, to herald the return of the Asgard.

    "Excellent Book!"

    Great twist on Norse mythology. I absolutely loved this book. Comedy, romance, action, and aliens! Whats not to like? In this book, the Norse Gods aren't Gods at all. They are an alien race and they're coming back to Earth for Ragnarok which is actually another race of aliens. Hollie Jackson does an amazing job with the narration.

    "great new series"

    I am so glad I gave the novel a chance. Great take on Norse mythology , with grand characters. It is wonderful to have the Valerie take centre stage, rather than the usual Odin and Thor stories. I like the blend of sci-fi, fantasy and mythology, set within modern parameters.
    A few scenes made me smile and one or 2 actually made me laugh.
    It isn't as funny as the iron druid series, but it definitely holds its own.
    Can't wait for book 2!

    "Originally Refreshing"

    It is about time someone wrote great science fiction with a strong female character who happens to be a lesbian. The story is great and does not have sappy sex. what it does have is a strong story that integrates with legends and folklore. It is a refreshing reminder, there are still good science fiction writers. Isaac Asimov Quality.

    "Kroffing awesome!"

    I was so happy to listen to this! The build up between Kate and Kara was really fleshed out and such a delight to explore. Loved the use of lore in Norse mythology... I need to get more of the audiobooks!

    "Loved the series!!!"

    The entire series is a fantastic blend of mythology, science fiction, romance and action. My only complaint is that each book is too short.

    "you will love Kate !"

    This is a very good listen. Everyone I have talked to about this book agrees that they love it to. It is a wonderful start to a really good series.
    When you have a great team like Erik Schubach and Hollie Jackson they can't help but put out a audio book that will pull you into the story.

    "Great Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Return of the Asgard the most enjoyable?

    A great first book from the Valkyrie series by Erik Schubach


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Return of the Asgard?

    The powerful ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To many to choose one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh .... a lot


    Any additional comments?

    I am impressed by the wealth of detail Mr. Schubach incorporates into his Valkyrie stories. Mr. Schubach writes the way every day man/women thinks. It's not all perfect grammar or poetry - it’s just hard facts with a comic twist. The book has action - history - and life lessons all rolled up in a good story. I would say it is well worth the credit! I hope his other books in this series become available to Audible Books!!!!
