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.

Absolutely AMAZING

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It would be hard not to, an awesome blend of humor scifi and romance i cant wait to see more of the series on audible

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Unfortunatly no, im definitly going to be keeping an eye out for her other performances

Who was the most memorable character of Return of the Asgard and why?

Kara stole the show for me, and i think id love to see more of her story in a prequal or series of prequals to Return of the Asgard, a character with alot of potiental

Any additional comments?

Well worth a credit keep an eye on Erik Schubach definitly an amazing up and comming author

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!

Great book

I was totally captured by the story. I had to listen all the way to the end. Good to have strong female leads in a story that normally would have gone to a man. Can't wait to listen to the next book.

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.

Very average

Return of the Asgard was a disappointment on many levels. It was well read, but the writing was average and the story line hard to believe on any level. Not a chronological I'll be following

Fantastic start

Really great start to the Valkyrie Chronicles. It’s really quite a different and interesting variation to the Norse gods story including really interesting and likeable characters. Can’t wait to listen to the rest of the series. Really great narrator too.
