Valkyrie Bryn Halbrook is broken and damaged…

Struggling to accept the loss of her wings, Bryn’s not sure if she can be a real Valkyrie anymore. But when a mysterious prophecy claims she will be the reason the All-Father dies, she is determined to ensure the prediction will not come to pass.

A visit to the three fates who live beneath the great Tree of life, sends Bryn racing against time to find the missing Heimdall and his horn. As Odin’s life hangs in the balance and Ragnarok draws ever closer, Bryn has to find a way to save Heimdall and Odin before she can discover the truth about who she really is.

In this thrilling instalment in the Valkyrie series Bryn must battle not only the formidable frost giants and the hated God Loki, but she must also find a balance between what she will lose and what she will gain.
Back in October last year I read the first two books in this series, I remember how excited I was about it and I was keen to see the story continue. Dead Chaos was a fabulous 3rd book in the series and even though there was a lot of action, it was an emotional read and massive secrets were revealed.

Now, if you haven’t read any books from this series, I will do my best to not spoil anything for you. There was a major incident at the end of the previous book that has everyone in shock, but no-one more than Bryn. She is doing her best to get over the incident and is getting terrific support from her friends Sigrun, Aimee and Joshua. Aidan is a bit distant now, his focus has shifted and I was a bit annoyed with him as Bryn has been through a lot with and without him. Soon however, Bryn is on a new adventure to discover more about her future and her place in the prophecy.

Bryn is still one tough chicka and even though she has had to deal with a lot she is still able to put it all aside to do what she needs too. The fate of the world depends on a few people including her, and she is able to put it all aside to do her job. Sigrun, Aimee and Joshua are her constant companions and it was nice to see more of them. They are great friends and will follow her anywhere. Aidan is a bit odd… but he too has other thoughts on his mind.

I enjoyed how this story built up. Many things clicked into place in this one as Bryn was on her own mission. T.G. Ayer has done a fantastic job continuing the story and my real issue was not reading the first two books for ages. If I read them consecutively I would’ve enjoyed the journey more. I am excited to see what happens now… Ragnarok is on the horizon and the prophecy is going to unfold!!

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

T.G. AyerI have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognise 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 practise 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.
