Dead Radiance - T.G. Ayer
I have never read a book about Valkyrie. I've seen them mentioned in books, but not as the main type of creature. Dead Radiance did not disappoint.When you begin Bryn's journey, you don't really know what is going on. With Aidan's arrival, pieces begin to fall together. The only thing I didn't understand was the instant attraction between the two. I'm not sure if there is more to it other than he's hot and mysterious. I love the world building. We've seen Asgard in movies like Thor, but Ayer's description is a million times better. I could see the palace walls forming around me.There were a couple of moments when the writing seems a little choppy, but that could be because I have zero knowledge on anything dealing with Norse mythology. I know a lot more though, and I love how the gods are portrayed in different books, as well as mythologies. I have been left wanting to learn more. :DThe characters were great. It was easy to be annoyed with Aidan considering how he behaves. I love Bryn. She's a strong character. She may not always make the right decisions, but she is loyal to those she cares about. She is also protective.All in all, I really liked this book. I'm ready to jump into Dead Embers to see what Bryn is up against next. :D
