This book was so good. Granted I wasn’t sure about it entirely because I didn’t like the second book. But I honestly enjoyed this one and once I got into it I couldn’t put it down. Additionally, not only was I wary but it did take me a bit to get back into the swing of this series. I had to remember who all of the players were and the larger plot line that the reader is being lead to. But don’t let that deter you from picking up this book. I did receive an ARC for an honest review of this novel and I always try to be honest.
Jack is the trickster of the group but he can do more than any other trickster which is because his father is a the god, Loki. Only no one knows that little tidbit about his family. He also may or may not be the one destined to cause Ragnarok but that is something he would greatly like to avoid. Jack thinks that he is helping to save Charlie from the clutches of Sebastian but in reality he is making an enemy by taking her away from her son. The monster within him recognizes her as his mate and he has an unexplainable attraction to her. Can he have her though?
Charlie was kidnapped by the murderous psychopathic vampire Sebastian in order to read the scrolls of Atlantis. Because apparently she is the only one that can. In order to get her to do what he wants her to he has her little boy held hostage and anytime she threatens anything he will take punishment on her son. So when she believes she is rescuing him but in reality is abandoning him she knows she must escape her kidnapper. But in this world of the supernatural not all is as it seems. Her kidnapper may be an asshole of the first degree but they can help each other. It is through that and the growing attraction to him that she not only comes to trust him but to care for him. And though that is true she can never forget who has her son and what it will take to get him back.
I really really liked the Norse mythology in this book. You don’t see that much in the paranormal world. Even though this one deals with all the mythologies I liked that it was a different one and that the god in question wasn’t one of the mainstream gods that everyone knows (Loki, Thor, Odin, etc.) but rather one that only those who know the myths would pick out and those of us who don’t got to learn more about. The one thing I wish this book would have explored more was Charlie’s past. I think having a chapter or so just with Jack discovering her past would have made the book deeper. There was an obvious connection on Jack’s part to her (hello, mate!) but I didn’t feel it on her side. She totally should have opened up about something, even what killed her husband. It would have made Charlie a deeper character in my opinion. Don’t let this little thing keep you from reading the book though. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this one.
