As the enemy closes in on their doorstep, one of their own loses their life, while a second struggles to cling to the light.
Three years ago, Aonghus left his humanity behind to protect the woman he loved from an evil plaguing his soul. Bound by blood to his father, he becomes a thoughtless killer without conviction. With hands stained by the blood of innocents, his heart has become as cold as ice.
When the love Aonghus left behind happens to save his life, he isn’t sure how to handle the choices that have been presented to him. Especially when she could be the key to stopping the Cowl.
Meanwhile, Gavina is the wild card needed to tip the scales in the warriors favor. Raised as the next leader to take over the Cowl, she wants nothing more than to destroy everything her family has become.
Protector of the last remaining Volva, and leader to Thor and Freya’s guardians, she is the only one who knows the truth. What she didn’t expect was to see Aonghus ever again, let alone prevent his death.
Will the horrors of their past keep them apart, or can the warriors put aside their differences to fight as one?
Welcome back to a world of Vikings where no one is safe and war is always around the next bend.

The Brass Compass by Ellen Butler was a spy like historical fiction romance, that kept me reading.
Not my first read by this author, so I knew going in I was in for something not only well written, but well researched. I was not disappointed, this book was that and more. Now I will say that there was a little too much info and filler at some points, pulling me out of the story, but it wasn't enough to detour me, or bring my reading mojo down.
Queen of the Warrior Bees (Natural Forces Book 1) by Jean Gill was a different, original read, that kept my attention and kept me flipping the pages.
My first read by this author, I was caught by the beautiful cover and the original elements I found in the synopsis. I dove into this book, and I had it read in one sitting. Now though I say that, I did have some issues.
Kingdom of War (Kingdom Journals Book 4) by Tricia Copeland was an action packed, multi layer detail read, that had me hooked.
Not my first read by this author, or in this series, so I knew I was in for something dark and fun. And yes I know I jumped again to the middle, but this book reads like a standalone, and with the well place detail, world building, and characters, I didn't feel lost or confused. I actually got sucked into this book right away, and before I knew it I had it read. It's that type of book, and if this is anything to go by, I'm definitely going to be getting my hands on the other books.
Girl Trap (Madeline Dawkins #3) by Cynthia Hamilton was a gripping suspenseful read that kept me reading. The third book in this series, I was excited to get my hands on it.
Now this is a continuation series, so I highly suggest reading the other two books or you will not be able to get the full impact of this story.Going into this book I think I might have set the bar a little too high, as I very much enjoyed the other two books, but I found this one was a little off.
A Deal with Death (Crescent City Wolf Pack #4) by Carrie Pulkinen was an engaging, original read that had me hooked.
I have been waiting for this book, and I'm all in a good feels place cause the wait is over, but I'm sad at the same time cause I want more books from this series like yesterday. This series has been by far my favourite of the year, and I can't get enough of this world that Carrie Pulkiene has created. This book opens with a dark bang
Moves by John Michaels was a heart pounding thriller that had me hooked, hard!
Wow, like, wow, I'm still trying to process everything that went on on this crazy good read. So much, like, as I was trying to piece everything together I kept thinking I was missing something, like a word you forgot, or a lost memory that just keeps slipping away from you. I love books like that, books that keep you guessing, on the edge of your seat, and just captures you fully, to the point were it's 3 in the morning and you're deciding if you're going to call in sick to finish the book, or force yourself to stop and try and get your mind to rest. That my friends is this book.
Gumshoe And The Mysterious Mushrooms (Gumshoe Mysteries Book 1) by Laura Hawks was an intriguing original read, that kept me flipping the pages.
The first book in what I believe is going to be a crazily outstanding series, we are taken on a mysterious adventure with a talking cat and a teen who learns that her life and what she believe isn't all that true. As YA is my guilty pleasure, when I seen this quirky read pop up I had to grab it, and man oh man, I'm so happy I did.
Hoosier Dad by Elizabeth Seckman was a fun, light hearted, witty read that had me hooked from that first opening sentence.
My first read by this author I didn't know what I was getting into, and lets just say, I liked it, I liked it a lot. This book was, as I said, super fun, witty, interesting, mysterious, steamy, weirdly outrageous, and just, full of though good feels that have you going, why isn't this a movie?!.
The Good Neighbors by Kiersten Modglin was a gripping psychological thriller, that had me hooked from start to finish.
Have you ever sat at the end of a book and just went, what the hell... what the hell? That was me, full on, not really comprehending how the author led me by the nose. This book was even told in dual POV and still managed to mislead you and catch you off guard. Again, what the hell?... (These are good, what the hells, BTW)
Hidden Magic: A Sanctuary Chronicles Novella by India Kells was a fast past, engaging read, that had me hooked.
This quick short read is packed full of action, romance, emotions, growth and of course, magic. It hooked me right away, and I dove right into this little wonder. As this is a side story to the main series, it can be read as a standalone. So don't worry about spoilers or feeling lost. As someone who follows this series, it brought me new characters to grow and love, and old ones I have missed. It was a good combo and made me remember why I love this series so much.
Smoke & Mirrors (Nite Fire #3) by C.L. Schneider was a fast pace, action filled, suspenseful read, that had me hooked.
The third book in the Nite Fire series and it kicks off right away setting the stage, tone, and the deadly mystery. I got sucked in right away and I did not want to stop reading this book. It has everything I love about otherworldly magic, urban fantasy, and shifter fantasy all rolled into one hell of a good read.
