Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson
I really liked this story about the Valkyrie and all the old Nordic folklore. I like that this was a little different take on the whole paranormal romance story. The story was engaging, entertaining and written well. Really a fun read.
Ellie doesn't know what she is all she knows is that she can do some interesting things. She and her brother Graham, and his friend Tuck all head over to Norway to spend some time with Ellie and Graham's grandmother Hilda. Things start to happen to Ellie that shake her up and send her to her grandmother for answers that she knows she has, but Hilda is very aloof with her. This really drove me a little crazy because her grandmother doesn't answer her but rather makes her think she is just imagining things. Hilda does redeem her self later, but I would be frustrated if I was Ellie wondering what the heck is going on with me and everyone else. Ellie over time comes into her own and with that comes great responsibility. Boys are missing and she has the ability to help will she? It means going up against Odin the god of War. Will she make alliances with the wrong people and who should she trust? There were all sorts of wonderful things going on in this story. I loved the characters too especially Tuck he is gorgeous and knows it but yet he really isn't cocky about it. I really liked his relationship with Ellie lots of bantering between the two of them. There is definitely more to him than meets the eye. Graham is great as well he is very handsome and is the very overprotective keep you safe big brother. Their father died so he takes this to a whole new level of annoyance, guys are actually fearful to ask Ellie out. Astrid is another great character one of those you love to hate kinds. She is beautiful and one intense kick-butt kind of girls. Can't wait for the next one. This one really did finish up nicely no huge cliff hanger, thank you Mrs. Paulson.
