You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.
Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms. Her orderly life just got very messy.
So what is this story about, you ask? Well meet Kristia Tostenson, she's plodding along in her small town of Nehalem, Oregon - Population 300 with ONE solitary stoplight, and she's desperate for a change. So thats when she decides to transfers to Cardiff University, Wales. She settles in quite nicely, finding solid friendships with her roommates, but what she didn't count on was meeting Ull Myhr, and for her whole world to be tipped upside down. You see, Ull is a god (not just in the figurative sense, but literally as well) descending from the Asgardians, as an immortal warrior (did I mention Thor was his stepdad? Yep!) So, you could say Ull has a lot of baggage. So how do they make it work? An immortal God and a Human? Especially with Ragnarok looming, which has Ull and his family fated to die. No one said it was going to be easy.
My brain, slowly lazing through its blissful fog, was beginning to grasp that this man was not meant for me. I couldn't think of any myth in which a human and a god has a successful relationship. And I wasn't naïve enough to think I'd be the human to change the game.
Kristia is not your typical NA heroine, mainly because she's fairly well balanced, and hasn't suffered any major trauma, oh and lets not forget her visions! I really liked her character. She's smart, sassy, brave and incredibly loyal, and I loved that her Mormor taught her impeccable manners! When she is faced with the reality of Ull and his identity, she doesn't run for the hills screaming. She actually stopped, asked questions, took her time to understand the situation (Take note people). She is a really strong person, and I can just imagine the great things she will accomplish in the next instalment Endre.
When faced with the decision of whether to choose Ull or choose everything else, there was no contest I would always choose Ull.
I liked Ull -- A lot. And he liked me. The rest was just stuff to be handled together. But exactly how much 'stuff' came along with dating a Norse god?
I couldn't get over the shock I felt at each touch or the way my pulse spiked when I looked at him. His endless supply of fitted sweaters didn't help either. If this kept up I was going to suffer a stroke at a tragically young age.
