Publisher's Summary

Leif Skarsganger and his elite band of immortal warriors have been charged to protect humanity from the evil Norse god Loki. Under attack from Loki's minions, Leif is shocked to encounter a dark-haired beauty who fights like a warrior herself. Wounded and feverish, the Viking kisses her, inadvertently triggering an ancient Norse bond. But when Naya Brisbane breaks away and disappears before the bond is completed, Leif's warrior spirit goes berserk. If Leif doesn't find her fast, he's going to lose himself to permanent battle fury. But Naya doesn't want to be found...and he'll do anything to find her. Because they're both running out of time.

Exciting

This is a new author for me and one which I will follow. The story was interesting from the first chapter to the last. The characters were well developed and intriguing. The narration is the primary reason I was interested in the book and it did not disappoint. I will listen to this many times. Love the voice and the story told!

Loved this story; can't wait to follow the series!

I’m in such a depression now that I’ve finished this book. This is the first Viking themed PN/Urban romance I’ve read, and it certainly won’t be my last – I’m definitely stalking this author and series! Leif and Naya are perfect as the lead male and female hero. They both know what they want and are stubborn about attaining it. Their chemistry was hot, but coming together as a couple was not easy due to misunderstandings, each person’s beliefs, history, etc. I was on pins and needles as their relationship was drawn out, but in an agonizingly good way (I listened to it on Audible, and I was literally screaming in the car at characters and situations). The author was able to weave so much action, intrigue, and suspense that I was never bored. Leif and Naya were also supported by a very interesting supporting set of characters by way of Leif’s warriors. Each played very different roles with their own distinct personalities; it appears future books of the series will feature these warriors, and I hope we go through all of them because that would mean a long term series of awesomeness! I cannot say enough great things about this book, and it (as well as the author) deserves all the attention, praise, and awards it receives.

Exceptional narrator, decent story...

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

Yes. Because it travelled at a reasonable pace for an action/romance, had an exceptional narrator in making you feel the characters, see the details, experience the story from their point of view, and was just a very fun read.

Would you be willing to try another book from Asa Maria Bradley? Why or why not?

Yes, if the same or an equally talented narrator that could present the cultural aspects did the reading of the book. The interplay between the different characters was part of what made reading this so special to me.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the heroine turns back the raging Viking.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Vikings meet the apocalypse.

Any additional comments?

It is a sweet, enjoyable read, a nice HEA with a real touch of culture, making a Science Fiction into a really interesting peak into a bygone culture.

Good - can't wait for book 2.

Pros: Great Story, Great characters, action and romance.

Cons: I would have liked the hero to have come to love the heroine faster than he did.

great moral to the story

I loved the berserker soulmate element that the viking could fall in love with anyone. It was a great moral for the story. Loved Neya's inner batter it showed she was more human than she thought, the one to protect her brother, the other to fight the affections she felt for Leif.

It was okay. I couldn't finish it because it never really hooked me. Still, I got more than halfway through.
