Publisher's Summary

Love. Honor. Protect.

As an environmental studies major, Allie knows the planet is in trouble - a series of natural disasters recently rocked the northern hemisphere, and species across the globe are going extinct. What Allie doesn't know is that her world's decline is a result of an ancient battle called the Night War - the Norse goddess Nott's crusade to control the weakest of the light realms. And Allie most definitely doesn't know that her existence is the only thing stopping Nott from dragging the earth into total darkness.

When four gorgeous guys show up claiming to be Allie's Asgardian protectors, she thinks they're delusional. And when they order her to hunt down the pieces of an immortal weapon, she's convinced they're insane. But when Allie's attacked, the guys' crazy stories of demigods and dark elves begin coming together. And Allie's not sure what scares her more - losing her life to the Goddess of Night...or losing her heart to one of her protectors.

Let the hunt begin.

If only

The story had potential it's a little cheesy but that's fine.... it's the writing that killed it for me and the narrator a bit... seriously the writing felt like a sixteen hour old girl decided to try her hand at writing. It felt like she tried to mix a romance novel with a YA novel but failed miserably at both. Maybe try editing and using more words then hotness and phrases like "that's what she said".

However I did like the Norse mythology the author sounded like she knew a bit and did research for it.

Love love love this book 📚

I love this story. Nothing like a Norse mythology story to ignite the imagination. Another bad ass chick and her 4 sidekicks ( 4 hot sidekicks). I would recommend to all my friends. The narrator did a fantastic job with the characters. I like her style.

Great Book But...

The book itself was really enjoyable. It kept a good pace throughout and I ended up growing quite an attachment to Allie's four protecters. However, liking them was difficult at first because of the narrator. She made them all sound like Zelda Rubinstein mixed with a dwarf that's suffering a cold; and these guys are supposed to be ultra hot demigods! So as you can imagine this is a really odd mix to try to imagine. I finally managed to get past it when I decided to just imagine them as various rolls of Chris Hemsworth ;). Another thing that the narrator did that drove me crazy was when ever the main Zelda Rubinstein (AKA Tori, the hottest of the bunch) would talk, he would talk in fast forward - seriously super fast. Even if he was being romantic; he would say it so fast in that raspy girl voice it didn't really have a chance to sink in. Other than that it was a great book and I can't wait to read the next one (and I'll make sure to READ it so maybe the characters will have a chance to redeem themselves from the slaughter of their supposed sexy voices!)

ready for book 2

I really enjoyed the book in terms of overall storyline, but wasn't a huge fan of the narration. While the main character IS fairly young, I felt like the narrator made her seem downright juvenile.

Teenagers would love but YA fans a little older not so much

Love this author and most of her series but I have to write a review and say this one lacked her usual ability to keep me interested and not rolling my eyes Narrator is one that I’ve become used to and like but her voices on some -well one character Bodie was nasally and made me hate hearing the character speak the Teenage dialogue and way the character was childish and petty made her unlikable at times Swing and a miss in the realm of home runs for this author and narrator for me I won’t be purchasing any more of this series

Feels like I'm listening to an annoying teenager

The narrator is fine but the writing is awful, I tried for over half the book and it just never gets better, the main character is whiny and the writing feels like a half baked plot idea written by a teenager who wasn't creative enough to create a fully thought out story board.

Not bad, not great

This book based its realm in Norse mythology which is fun. There is a good drive to the plot with a clear mission, but this book only covers the first steps so ends before it feels like it should. The narrator pitches the male voices so low and out of her range, that specifically the main male character lacks any inflection, which is fairly annoying. There are better read and written books out there, but it's okay as a light read

a great adventure already

Good story, characters and humour. A good pace, no slow parts. The story reminded me of bits of the first Thor movie where the warriors enjoyed battles and feasts. Similar kind of story to Hive Trilogy by Leia Stone. Except Norse Gods and Asgard instead of Vampires.

Please record the 3rd book.

From the very beginning I was hooked, just about to start on book two which I'm sure will be equally captivating. I wish each book and book series lasted far longer, please at the very least record book 3 of the series.
