A risk worth taking…
No one would ever accuse Jace Berisha of having an easy life—considering her husband…you know…killed her. But that was then! Now she fights for mighty Viking gods with the spectacular and vicious Crows. But things are turning very bad, very quickly because a vengeful, ancient goddess has come into the world with just one thing on her mind—ending it. And the only way they can hope to stop her is if the Crows join forces with their one-time enemies, the Protectors. A Viking Clan created to do nothing but kill every Crow they see. Thankfully, Protector Ski Eriksen is a peace loving kind of guy. Because the woman he is desperately trying to get close to is the beautiful and not-very-chatty Jace. Battling Nordic clans? Unkillable goddesses? Jace’s mean-spirited dog? None of these things would ever get in the way of a true Viking!
Some of the readers felt that the characters in The Undoing were well formed and kept the interest as well as the humor. The audio book narrator is so good you could find yourself laughing out loud. Most say this one book 2 in the series – was much lighter and more fun of a read than the first one, which had a lot more world building. Can’t wait for more. The characters are wonderful – quirky, funny, snarky, sexy, smart, etc! Jace was one of our favorites in the first book, and we still love her, but now we have added even more characters to our list of favorites Annalisa, Erin, Gundo, and Bear – oh my gosh, Bear! Many ladies said they adore Bear. The action is great, and there is just enough, and we love the animals, too. Only bad thing is waiting for the next to come out, too much cussing and not enough scenes with the dog.
Overall rating of 4.
