Clytie, a Valkyrie, finds herself questioning Odin’s orders when Psyche comes for a shape-shifting panther, Storm. He rescues Clytie from a giant and something inside of her changes. A spark ignites; triggering an emotion Valkyries are forbidden to experience. Following her new feelings, she turns her back on all she knows to be with Storm. However, she knows it’s only a matter of time before Odin puts a price on their heads.
Odin furious with his Valkyrie for disobeying him, and proving the Well right, accepts the War is coming and Clytie will be the goddess who dethrones him, unless her sister stops her first.
Goes down as another off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book with a beautiful cover. Well it is purple and that’s my favourite colour so kind of gives it an edge. Warriors, wolves, shifters, gods of war and Valkyrie’s alike must come together to fight the battle that’s brewing. Odin must be stopped and it looks like they are just the ones to do it.
Clytie seems to have gotten herself in a bit of a tricky situation right from the get go. Luckily it seems that a black panther shifter, Storm, is there to help, seemingly having an overwhelming urge to protect her. Thing is he gets hurt and is near death, near enough for Psyche, Clytie’s sister, to come to take him to be a part of Odin’s army, something Clytie feels compelled to stop. Seems they both want to protect the other but have no idea why. Fate has pulled them together but will it keep them together? Odin might have a few words to say about that.
Clytie knows the moment her sister tells Odin of what she has done the whole of Asgard will come for them. Her sister included, the one she will need to watch out for the most. She might now be a rogue but she’s one with a panther shifter on her side so that has to count for something, right? He’s saved her life in a battle so it’s only fair she save his. Almost like ‘tag you’re it’, next time you save me.
The connection between them is so strong and neither can deny it for long. When the running danger comes too close the heat rises to the surface. A kiss to connect but in the process brings a storm in itself. Clytie was once told of a story about the Valkyrie of the earth – the ultimate Valkyrie. Fearing she is part of it, and not knowing the whole story, she runs from the one person she needs most. She is their goddess, their savior and it’s something she can’t run from.
Seems Psyche has her own protector in Borea, who inadvertently gets himself in hot water so feels the need to protect her from what’s coming. He knows she will follow Odin’s orders but will her love for her sister stop her from completing the mission? Seems when you go out of your way to stop a prophecy from coming true you end up creating the reason for why its meant to happen in the first place. Something Odin should think on with what’s to come. Those who serve must follow orders but what happens when they know they shouldn’t? A battle is coming but which side will come out on top?
Two prophecies for the price of one. Not only was an ultimate Valkyrie promised but also the shifters were told of a great Alpha from Storm’s pride that would lead them. Two prophecies coming together to create the ultimate power couple? A storm is brewing, quite literally, and it’s my favourite colour – purple! What’s not to love?
Interesting mystical world you are thrown into with this one. A journey like none other that is full force forward right from the get go. Fate and prophecies will not be denied and those that go against them will soon see the error of their ways. A battle might be won but the war is still to play for. With Storm by Clytie’s side they can do anything. Let the journey continue.
4.5 out of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.
