Publisher's Summary

For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates….

Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task. And no one has a heart more guarded than Arienh, who has sacrificed her own happiness for the good of her village. She and Ronan are unlikely lovers, forged in dangerously opposite worlds - yet bound together by strength, sacrifice, and an undeniable passion.

Was repetitive and boring***

Would you try another book from Delle Jacobs and/or Sarah Coomes?

I like Sarah Coomes as a narrator. The story was lacking. The main character just needed to tell her beau the truth. It seemed like the same thing kept happening over and over. The book didn't start going anywhere til the last 20 minutes.

Would you ever listen to anything by Delle Jacobs again?

No

What didn’t you like about Sarah Coomes’s performance?

I like her as a narrator.

Did Loki's Daughters inspire you to do anything?

No

I wish this was a series! I didn't want it to end!

What did you love best about Loki's Daughters?

Usually, I am a terrible sucker for Scottish Highland romance novels but this book has got me stuck on Vikings!

What about Sarah Coomes’s performance did you like?

Sarah Coomes is DEFINITELY one of my very favorite narrators! Her range for different accents is surprising! She always makes the performance very believable and makes me fall in love with the characters!

Northman, not Viking

I was in the mood for a good love story, but with that, some times you get a story that frustrates you because the main characters don't communicate the one thing that is keeping them apart. This story certainly fit that bill. Ronan has loved Arienh for 10 years without her knowing it, and she has waited for his return for 10 years. When he does come back, she doesn't recognize him and even if she did, she won't get her HEA, because of a secret she is guarding and the fact he is a Viking. (He keeps insisting he's not a Viking, but a Northman, and there is a difference) It gets frustrating at times, but I listened on and did enjoy the book, knowing that this was one of those typical love stories and all would end well.

Great light listen.

What did you like best about Loki's Daughters? What did you like least?

The story was for the most part good. It was a bit typical in the way the lead female charachter was selfless to a fault.

Fun listen

What did you love best about Loki's Daughters?

This was an easy, entertaining listen. The reader is very, shall we say, enthusiastic, and keeps the somewhat predictable story moving. Pretty standard romance, but very well-written, with some interesting historical detail thrown in.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Loki's Daughters?

Jacobs writes a pretty evocative sex scene :)<br/>

What does Sarah Coomes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She's a terrific reader and can switch seamlessly from British to Scandinavian accents very convincingly. Listening was far more enjoyable than reading.

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

Lots of sighing.

It wasn't that good...

I picked this one up in the hidden gem sale, and I kinda wish I didn't. It had potential but it didn't hit the mark.
A small Celtic village off the Irish coast was raided by Vikings, it left the village in ruin with pretty much no men left. So ten years later women are trying to survive and keep the village going with no luck they collectively can't handle men's work along with their women's work simultaneously. One day the Viking's return or what the women think are Vikings, really just Norsemen to setting in the village and help the Celtic women. The Norsemen are perfect gentlemen helping out with everything and bringing the village and land back to life and all the Celtic women can do is play silly pranks on the men and call them heathen Vikings. It pretty much goes on like this through the whole book. The pranks really just reminded me of college greek week, when sororities and fraternities would prank each other, it was that silly.
It comes out that Ronin the leader of the Norsemen was at the village raid 10 years ago and saved Arienh the ringleader of the Celtic women from being raped from the Viking chasing her that night. He came back for her wanting her to be his wife and she just asks like a totally brat towards him even though she gave up her V-patch to him pretty early on in the book. Once you do that you are considered married and therefore Arienh has no legs to stand on to be such a brat. The whole book is the women struggling to accept the men and once they do...the book is over. I found it rather dull and recommend passing this one over.

Fun little piece

I laughed out loud more than once. The narrator's characterizations are fitting and believable. This book succeeds in entertaining a along the way.

So much better in Audio!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Loki's Daughters to be better than the print version?

I read this book a few years back and it is one of my favorites. Hearing it on audio just made it so much better. i love having this on audio and plan to listen over and over again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

my favorite character was main chapters sister Bridgette? not sure how you spell her name.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes I felt the narrator matched the pace of the book when it needed to speed up she did.same went when it was meant to be slow and sensual I felt she did that really good.the only thing that bugged me was she was off on the chapters. She said chapter 1 or 2 I don't remember which one a few times so by the time she got to the 6 chapter she was only saying 3 and this continued through the rest of the book.

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

I laughed a few times just because the men were just crazy.

Wonderful

I don't care at all for romance novels. This is so very much more. Rich with culture that any Celt admirer will appreciate. Characters that any strong woman can be proud of.
