Publisher's Summary

Stieg Engstrom, Angriest Viking Ever, has big problems. The human Viking clans of Earth are in danger of being obliterated-along with the rest of the world - and the only one who may be able to save them is a super pain-in-the-ass Crow. Most people annoy Stieg, but this is the one woman he really can't stand...

Erin Amsel loves being a Crow! Why wouldn't she, when the other Viking clans are so hilariously arrogant and humorless? She's not about to let all that come to an end! She just didn't expect to be shoulder to shoulder in battle with Stieg. Then again, he's so easy to torment - and also kind of cute.

With the future of the world riding on them, Stieg knows he'll have to put aside his desperate need to kiss the smirk right off Erin's face. Wait. What? He didn't mean that-did he? No! They have one goal: To conquer the idiots. Because nothing bugs Stieg more than when idiots win. If only he can keep himself from suddenly acting like one...

I love this series, the author and the narrator

The story line completely holds my interest and the narrator has the perfect tone of the story. I am really looking forward to the next book.

successful third book in the series

Where does The Unyielding rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like Shelly Laurenston and her early Pride/Shifter books can be very raw and uncomfortable. The Author had evolved a style that is both comedic and female kickass. The Author does empower females but it is a concept that can go over board especially in a character like Erin Amsdal. The Author stayed true to Erin's brass, assholish character but managed to add depth to her. I liked how she and Stig played off each other and it was not a normal he man save little lady rescue romance as that would never work.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hilda the Goat. Because she can head butt you. Liked the dragon and the squirrel too.

Which scene was your favorite?

Not sure. Liked the book overall but I do remember the scene when the dragon was eating the leg of a corpse like a chicken bone. That sticks in your mind.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but was not able to. It was actually more enjoyable spread out over several days.

Any additional comments?

The author maintains a nice balance between comedy, brashness, and the end of the world is coming. She manages to put together very bizarre characters and make it work. The author's world is not for the quiet, shy, introvert. Although at times you want to push the lot of them off a bridge or balcony.

Best one of all!

I love, love, love, Erin's story. Thre sarcasm is the female version of deadpool. I could help but laugh out loud from some of things she said. The story line was great and wished there were more...😊

Awesome and Hilarious!

I love all of these books, I did not expect a lot of them but I do, in the beginning of the books I had an issue with an aerator, but I got over that quickly. She is the perfect narrator for the series, someone with less attitude would definitely have had more difficulty pulling this off. I really hope there are more books in the series, this trilogy was thoroughly enjoyable.

Awesome series!

This is one of the top most entertaining books I've read to date and Shelly Laurenston has just gained a new fan! I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't what I got. I adored this book. It had such a crazy and wonderfully, entertaining storyline with so many characters. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up and learn who was who but I think I was just so drawn into the characters it really wasn't an issue.

The balance of creating a serious storyline and being able to mix humor throughout can't be an easy accomplishment, yet it was spot on. I can't tell you how many times this book had me laughing out loud. The humor was great and I never felt it was over the top. I can't do this story justice if I tried to explain it. Just know there are the 9 clans, humans, Gods, shifters, a dragon and even a goat plays a part. It's bloody and full of gore while they are all trying to save the world but I can guarantee you laugh just as much as there is fighting. I can't wait to go back and read the first two books in the series.

Love this series

This book brings back the human clans as outlined in the world building from the previous two books. In the conclusion to this story arc we see our heroine and hero set off on a quest where they meet up with all manner of obstacles.

Once again the narrator is top notch, deftly handling multiple characters and instilling them with their distinct personalities.

Great series

Absolutely love this series!!

Nordic gods, the four horseman, avenging angels, and those gifted by the gods - Crows, Ravens, Protectors, Valkyrie, Giant killers and more.

The world Shelly Laurenston created is incredible and great read!

I can only hope that there will be more books in this series.
