Read full description of the books:
Right now at this exact moment in time, Venge would have taken on an army of ale-crazed dwarves just for a few more moments in her arms.
This was a good book. By the time I was half-way done with it, I couldn't believe how many things had happened already! And I couldn't imagine all the things that would happen before the end.
Geysa is a Valkyrie. Venge is a hellhound (Risk's son - Risk was the hero in Unbound). Venge is filled with hate for his father and wants to kill him. He wants the ErlKing's horn so that he can control all the hellhounds and send them to murder his father.
Geysa is posing as a barmaid, along with her sister and her aunt. Her mother was slaughtered by the ErlKing in the Great Hunt. She and the other Valkyries are determined to get the Horn and hide it away so that no one else will die.
A Valkyrie and a hellhound? They've always been mortal enemies. But Geysa and Venge start having feelings for each other, even though both are hiding huge secrets...
Fun, fun, fun. Devoti weaves Norse mythology into a modern world. It's very entertaining.
This book is exciting, fast-paced, and full of twists and turns. Geysa and Venge both have their dark pasts, and Venge's murderous dark intentions are rather frightening. Geysa has this very curly red hair and I was just picturing her in my mind! Venge is a redhead, too, well, more auburn really.
How's the sex, Carmen?
This is the one place where I felt the book could have done better. It's not as if Devoti can't write good sex. She OBVIOUSLY has the tools and skills to do so. The problem is, she lacks follow through.
For instance, the characters will start kissing. Yay! I settle back in my chair, ready for some good kissing, but then the kissing just abruptly ends before it even really started, and they are having sex. o.O I flip the page back and forth. Did I miss something? Where is the extensive kissing? Where is the foreplay?
Now. If you just want to fuck and you are just going to skip some of the fun stuff, that's okay. I completely understand. Sometimes things just go this way. But this is not 'sometimes,' this is a pattern with Devoti.
I like slow, intensifying buildup with lots of foreplay. Devoti tends to skip this and get right to the (not very described) penis-in-vagina sex. That's not satisfying or thrilling to me.
If Devoti fleshed out her sex scenes a bit more, we could potentially have a five-star-romance on our hands. She's certainly got the plot, excitement, and world-building down pat. However, this is the third book of hers that I've read, and I think I can confidently say that she's got a pattern - and it's not one I particularly enjoy.
Now, is the sex BAD? No, it's not BAD. Nothing bad happens. It's not stupidly written and nothing upsetting happens.
Tl;dr - A wild book that moves at breakneck speed. Devoti is excellent at weaving Norse mythology into a modern setting. With longer and more slowly paced sex scenes, this book could potentially be a five-star romance. As it stands, there's something missing.
