The Norse Chronicle is an Omnibus edition of three books. Although it’s long, the story is so captivating that I didn’t even notice it. :) It's perfect mixture of modern world with mythical world of Norse Gods.
Ragnarok already accured and killed most of the Aesir, ones that are left are living more or less peacefully with humans. After decades of peace, there is threat of new Ragnarok. There is mystery to be solved, different creatures and Gods, amazing friendship, romance and alliances forming.
Thorin. He came across such a creep in the beginning of the story. As we got to know him bit by bit, I started to like him and respect him. Not only is he one of the most powerful being in the story, he is such a rock for Solina.
Solina. My favourite part about her, was her development. She wasn’t bad-ass, or strong from the start. She was scared and confused and not very sure about her self. As the story continues, we could see her growing into herself, gaining confidence, developing her powers, redeeming past mistakes and becoming on the strongest characters…ever. :)
Mythology. Usually, I hate stories that go to far from original mythology, but this take on Norse gods, was just … perfect. The author brought modern times and sense of realism into mythology and made it her own. And I loved reading about the world(s) created.
Val. Not to give too much away, but he was one of my favourite characters in the story. I like him in the beginning, hate him in the middle and absolutely loved him in the end. HE is just something else. :))
All father. He was to wimpy for my taste and not to all-fathery. However I did love the romance of his reincarnating wife
Valkyries. Just no. (not hating all, just select few :))
It’s such a complex story. Highly recommend to anyone who loves mythology. :)
