You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr.  Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting.  He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth.  Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms.  Her orderly life just got very messy.

With the fate of the cosmos in Kristia’s inexperienced hands, she’s submerged in a world she never knew existed.  Kristia has to learn to control an onslaught of prophetic premonitions, convince Ull’s thunderous stepdad Thor to make her a god, and stop Ull from giving up his immortality in a misguided attempt to save her.  In choosing Ull Kristia risks losing everything, including her love… and her life.

My Thoughts

Action packed with a heart pounding romance!
The plot is fast paced and full of twists and turns. I loved the blending of mythology and romance in this story. There was always something exciting waiting around every turn of the page so I had a hard time putting this one down.

Kristia is a lot like me and I really liked that she was so relatable. She is a normal woman living in a normal world until everything gets turned upside down after her encounter with Ull. Seeing how she handled these crazy situations was so much fun. She was very brave and dealt with things the best she could. I loved that she never ran away even when things got really tough. I really admired that about her.

Ull is strong and so sweet. I loved getting to know his character and seeing his interactions with Kristia was so hilarious. They are so great for each other. He protective of his loved ones and can be a bit stubborn sometimes. He and Kristia are so much fun and I loved their banter.

The romance between these two was nicely paced and I could really feel the chemistry between them.

A thrilling romance that you won’t be able to put down!
