Publisher's Summary

When the gods play in mortals’ lives, the only certain outcome is uncertainty. Especially when that god is Loki.

In the course of a night, I found out my entire life was a lie. Now, Yrsa, Eydis, and I will set off to recover Tyrfing. I must leave Dalr - and the dream I’d shared with Hofund - behind. Eydis is sure the gods have plans for me. I hope she’s right. For on the distant island of Bolmsö, the last of my father’s line is besieged by enemies, and only the blood of a berserker can make things right again.

Continue the Road to Valhalla series with audiobook two, Shield-Maiden: Under the Hunter’s Moon.

Fans of Vikings, The Last Kingdom, and The Mists of Avalon will relish this sweeping Viking historical fantasy as it retells the Norse Hervarar Saga, depicting the life of the shield-maiden Hervor, the inspiration for J. R. R. Tolkien's Éowyn.

Never Disappoints

I love all things Viking, the Norse gods, a strong female character, and a well written book, all of which are in this series.
I was so happy to find that book 2 was finally available on Audible. Regretfully it had been such a big gap between when book 1 & book 2 were distributed I had to listen to book 1 again. I was so happy with how great the story flowed from 1 to 2. Book 3, Shield-maiden: Under a Thunder Moon is on Amazon, when will it be released onto Audible. I hope soon, I can’t wait to listen to what happens next in this saga!

Great Follow Up

I really enjoyed this sequel! The narration paired with a story of a strong female sold it for me.
I love Norse mythology and I loved listening to the character's story colored by it. The narration is perfection. Lesley Parkin has such a great accent and gives each character their own unique voice.
Author Melanie Karsak continues to build a beautiful world. I enjoyed the action and fight scenes in this installment. The love story isn't overbearing and complements the lead's character.
Once again, I look forward to the next book.
I received an audio copy for review; all opinions are my own.

Excellent Viking Historical Fantasy!

This is the second book in “The Road to Valhalla” series. The first book was very well written, and I am pleasantly surprised that this second book is even better. This was such a fun journey with Hervor! She finally knows who her father is and sets off to meet her other grandfather. Thank goodness he is nothing like her mom’s father!

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

It was great to see her learning about her past and interacting with her father and uncles. She finally meets a grandfather that values and respects her.

The story is very well written and sucks you in right away. There is suspense, action, betrayal, and a touch of romance.

The characters are well developed and the story progresses at a great pace. I’m looking forward to finding out what will happen next.

Enjoyable story

As always Melanie Karsak wrote a great story that is easy to follow with wonderful world building and characters you are definitely invested in. I liked the chosen narrator, I thought she did a good job portraying the different characters. Over all I would recommend the audio.

Shield-maiden book 2

This is the second book in the series. It is a good story about vikings, following a would be shield maiden who has learned who here father was and is carving her way into the world, and the gods with there plans. listening to the story draws you in and I enjoyed listening to it. I'm looking forward to the next book to see what advature and trouble is still to come.
