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.

meh...

kept listening but throughout it felt like it was a poorly written tween book. The narration was too teen sounding, high pitch. i slowed it down to 75% to get through it. Rainbow bridges, sleep curses and some Nordic mythology. Not the worst not the best.

Trying too hard

I did love the plot of this book, but I feel like the authors were trying way too hard to make it relatable to a teen audience. While some parts of the boom were great, other parts, mainly about her “favorite protector” were very cringy.

I wish I could've given it 2.5 stars

I have to agree with one of the previous reviewers in that this story fails on two points with the author and with the narrator. As far as the author goes the previous reviewer hit it on the head in that it almost seemed as though she could not decide which audience to write for so i thought the plot suffered for it skirting that line between a tween youth book set with young adult but hiring at adult themes. It has some potential as a series and I like in general what she is attempting to do with the book so as far as worldbuilding she did a pretty good job but character, and verbiage were to the detriment. As far as the narrator, she has a good female voice and overall did a great job with the pronunciation with only a couple errors, but her male voices all sound the same and if you have one female lead, and four males in frequent conversation the right narrator can make the conversations so much easier to follow.

Overall, I can see why some will give it high marks and you might enjoy it, but for me my opinion is that I need to be as far as I can be in comparison to the hundreds of other fantasy, romance books and see how I feel it compares hence my rating of a 2, because it is just a little below average. But I urge the publisher to consider a revision and another narrator.

fascinating

I rather enjoyed listening to this audio version of the Book. the narrator does a lovely job of bringing Allie to life, I can see myself buying the 2nd audio once I finish reading the book itself.

Good book,

Good book, good story. Nicely written, just on the teen side of the books. Look forward to book 2.

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.
