Sometimes you just have to believe.

Finding her destiny nearly cost her everything. Kristia knows she can handle whatever The Fates throw at her next—including her long-awaited honeymoon with the God of Winter. But as things heat up between Kristia and Ull, a frost settles over Asgard. An unexpected death marks the beginning of the end, much earlier than anyone expected. Kristia’s barely begun to understand what she’s capable of, and controlling her powers seems completely out of her grasp. With her new family fighting for their lives, and Ull fighting for their future, Kristia has to make a devastating choice: preserve the life she loves, or protect the god she can’t live without?

my thoughts

Everything I wanted the first two books to have are all HERE! Therefore, this is my MOST favorite book in the trilogy!

I still think this book series didn’t get the much deserved attention it deserves! It’s a great series and I love it! Did I say I love it? haha! 

Seriously though. On a random note, it’s so funny. The other day, my friend and I went to a Phillip Phillip concert in Manhattan, and in between the first act and Phillip finally singing, these three HUGE tall guys worked their way and stood in front of us, where we were standing for an hour or so already. And we were like, ‘what are you doing?’ and they said “we’re from Iceland and we’re really huge Phillip Phillip fans…” we were like ‘we don’t care if you’re from wherever you are and if you’re huge fans, we got here first and you are all so tall, go stand in the back.”. haha! Okay, how does this connect? Well, I don’t know why but when I saw them, tall guys and one was gorgeous and they all have white blonde hair, and I just couldn’t stop myself from thinking “They must be from Asgard!” haha. ALL because of this series, I relate tall gorgeous white blonde guys with accents to be Norwegian, where the setting of S.T. Bende’s series is based.

Anyway, the last book is where all the action and all the answers are! This is the most exciting book in the series! Ull and Kristia are now married and the first few chapters are dedicated to their honeymoon. In all honesty, it kind of reminded me of Breaking Dawn, the last book from the popular Twilight series, because yeah, the first parts of that book was also about the honeymoon…same setting: beach, same anxiety for the girls- the first night. ONLY- Kristia didn’t get miraculously pregnant! lol. Then after the “honeymoon phase”, literally honeymoon phase,lol, comes the exciting phase where all the action happens. I’m not going to spoil you whether or not who dies or what exactly happens, but every question and every mystery there is in the first two books are finally answered! The sequencing of the events are perfect. The plot is perfect. Aaaah. I just love everything! 

So, from me, an honest book reviewer, to you, fellow readers, I highly recommend this book series. Especially if you love, Norse mythology, or if you’ve never tried reading a novel with Norse myth on it..or if you love some light paranormal romance. I don’t know if this is categorized as paranormal, but it’s clearly not normal. lol. 😀

NOTE: A copy was received in exchange for an honest review. I wasn’t paid to say what I said above. 😀 I was never ever paid ever in any of my reviews if that info helps. 🙂
