Dead Embers Review (Giveaway Included)

Hello Readers : )

There’s a review with a giveaway link included in today’s post so make sure to read along and find out how to enter.


Book Blurb:

Valkyrie-in-training Bryn Halbrook just can’t catch a break. With her boyfriend stuck in Hel and the taunting laughter of Loki still ringing in her ears, she struggles to concentrate on her training and duties in Odin’s realm. The last thing she expects or wants is more adventure—but then treachery, a shocking abduction and a chilling discovery send her forth on another perilous, globe-hopping mission.

As the ultimate battle, Ragnarok, draws closer, it’s a race against time for Bryn, Fenrir and their team to discover who kidnapped her foster brother from the halls of Asgard and what’s causing the mysterious deaths of so many of Odin’s chosen warriors.

In the exciting sequel to DEAD RADIANCE, Bryn encounters dwarfs and dragons, new friends and old foes—but the worst enemy of all may be the person she trusts most!


Teaser Excerpt:

“For a shadow of a second, I stared into his eyes, shocked, horrified he’d do such a thing to me. A thousand fears filtered through my frigid brain. Was he in cahoots with Loki? Or was he Freya’s dog all along?

It took an eternity for him to blink. Even longer for me to blink.

Then Fenrir pushed me and I fell off the cliff, into pure white oblivion.”

My Review:

When I began to read this story I did hoping it wouldn’t disappoint. Thankfully, it did not. Although I am yet to read the first book in the series, Dead Embers drew my attention enough that I definitely feel like I have to go back to the beginning.

Intriguing, well written, and full of page after page of non-stop action, this was definitely one heck of a fantastic read. With twists and turns where I wasn’t expecting them, I found myself completely submerged in the plot and well, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the characters a little too.

With this said, I have to go out and buy the first installment of the Valkyrie series. Unfortunately, I have to wait until next year for the continuation : (


About the author:

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each other’s loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.!/TGAyerAuthor
