Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy read and a healthy dose of Norse Mythology If, and for some this may be a big IF, you can look beyond the dizzying romance between Vidar and Victoria, then this is a wonderful work of fiction. The romance IS the backdrop to the story, but it isn't really THE story. Enough all else happens in the book that I was really engrossed in it despite the lovey-dovey stuff. I enjoyed the original ending - without the sweeter deal that a re-write for the North American audience provides. This is a romance novel, in some ways, but it is also a great illustration for Norse Mythology and Kim Wilkins' writing is fantastic in painting the story in imaginative ways. I recommend this for it reads like a modern day fairy take - but offers up a more challenging epilogue than anticipated :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from eh, good for a mental nap curled in the sun I actually found it an enjoyable read for lounging on the sunny lawn near science world after work. The dogs and children frolicking around me did not distract from the fairly content free urban folklore. I think I enjoyed the supporting creatures more than the main characters though: Skripi the wood wight, Grid the giantess, and Loki the conniver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Work from an Excellent Author found this book to be gripping, fast paced and interesting. Ms. Wilkin's didn't delve into the science too deeply (of the meteorology), but enough that her conversations and circumstances were believable. I thoroughly enjoyed each character, being fleshed out appropriately for the story, but without superfluous detail. I found the descriptions good, the world described accurately and with interest. While I didn't know anything about the Norse gods and their relationships, I still found myself very interested, and I found them relatable. Some times I feel like if I didn't know the basic Arthurian story, I would be lost reading some of the adaptations. I didn't feel this way at all. I think that anyone could pick up this book and catch on pretty quickly. It did leave with interested in the Norse god structure, and relationships, but again, not imperative to the story. Nothing is more frustrating then having to study before reading a book of fiction. Kim Wilkins is one of my favourite authors. She did not dissapoint in this story. It wasn't as dark as some of her other work, but was just as thrilling. I would rate this book with a 14+, as there is brief and somewhat non-descript sex in it (most teens wouldn't feel that it was graphic), and there is some violence, but not excessive. It is all related to the story, and not described in detail. Not knowing what 14 year olds can relate to as far as parents losing children, consequences for your actions, etc. I think that if I had read this at 14, I still would have loved it. I recommend this book to everyone who wants something fantastical, but slightly different then the norm.
