Claimed by Gods
The gods walk among us. And they just might steal your soul… or your heart.
I thought I’d survived everything life could throw at me. All I wanted was to keep my distance from the criminals I work for and get my little brother out of the hell that is our mother’s house.
Then I died and woke up to four stunningly hot gods telling me I’m now a valkyrie.
Sly, sharp Loki. Jovial but ferocious Thor. Dreamily compassionate Baldur. Grim and secretive Hod. They all have something to teach me. And around them, my walls start to crack.
But the gods didn’t summon me just for kicks. Their king is missing, and they need me to find him. The first three valkyries they sent on the job never made it back.
More power is awakening in me than I could ever have imagined—and the gods’ enemies are more devious than even they knew. It’s going to take every trick in the book for me to save myself, my brother, and these divine men who’re getting under my skin in the most alluring way.
I’m Aria Watson, and Valhalla ain’t seen nothing yet.
Uncaged Review: This book was quite the surprise, and in a good way. I didn’t expect to be greeted by a version of the Norse gods, but there you have it. When Aria died, she ended up being summoned by the gods to become a Valkyrie – to find the Allfather – Odin who had been taken by dark elves. Ari is a spitfire, and a survivor, having grown up on the streets with a horrible family life, and the only thing she loved, was her little 6 year old brother Petey. Aria is smart and resourceful and pretty badass in her own right and she’ll prove it to you.
The sex in the book didn’t even begin until you were about 80% in, but I doubt the next one will wait that long. But it did not in any way, distract from the story. Another thing I really enjoyed was the different POV’s. Even though this is written in first person, the author switched up from chapter to chapter, with the character name in the beginning of whom had the narrative during that chapter. It was easy to keep them straight, and I enjoyed what they all were thinking and feeling. This was a nice original take in the fantasy genre, and I am looking forward to book two.
