Synopsis: Solina Mundy lives a quiet life, running the family bakery in her small North Carolina hometown. But one night, she suffers a vivid nightmare in which a wolfish beast is devouring her twin brother, who lives in Alaska. The next morning, police notify her that Mani is dead. Driven to learn the truth, Solina heads for the Land of the Midnight Sun. Once there, she begins to suspect Mani’s friends know more about his death than they’ve let on. Skyla, an ex-Marine, is the only one willing to help her.
As Solina and Skyla delve into the mystery surrounding Mani’s death, Solina is stunned to learn that her own life is tied to Mani’s friends, his death, and the fate of the entire world. If she can’t learn to control her newfound gifts and keep her friends safe, a long-lost dominion over mortals will rise again, and everything she knows will fall into darkness.
My Thoughts: Before starting this book I had only read a quick synopsis and had not seen any reviews so I was pleasantly surprised to discover the premise of the story. I love reading anything with Norse Mythology. The author does an amazing job creating a unique story line full of Norse Mythology. I was captivated from the very first page by the authors beautifully descriptive writing and continued to be intrigued by the suspenseful and surprising twists. This book kept me on my toes the whole time and I was never able to guess what would happen next. I loved it!!
Solina, the main character, is had not to love! After losing her brother Solina travels to Alaska in search for answers to her brothers murder, what she discovers is more than she could have anticipated. On her path for answers she befriends Skyla, another strong female lead. Together the two make a great team. Every character is this book has a uniqueness about them leaving you wanting to know more of their story.
Overall an addicting story leaving you with a million questions of what will happen next. I loved every minute and had a hard time doing much more than read this book all weekend. I am now impatiently awaiting for the release of the next book in this series. Crossing my fingers it's sooner than later!!!
