Many thanks to Patricia and FFBC Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Quite a descriptive read portraying the love between the sisters with a backdrop of Nordic mythology.
Lena’s younger sister was found dead. She couldn’t get over the shock and hence made a deal with Norse Goddess of Death, Hela, to get her back. Conditions applied.
My first book by author Elizabeth Tammi, the Nordic mythology appealed to me. The love between the sisters and the grief that Lena felt at her loss struck a chord with me. I lived how she was willing to do anything to get her sister back, I meant anything.
The writing was long and quite descriptive, extremely slow for most parts of it. The rest of the characters helped to take the story further. The plot came to fruition at the end, but left me with some questions probably for Book 2.
The concept was the story and the mythology intertwined in it made me turn the pages to get to the end. A different read, for sure.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Elizabeth Tammi was born in California and grew up in Florida, but is currently double-majoring in Creative Writing and Journalism as an undergraduate at Mercer University in Georgia. When she’s not writing, you can probably find Elizabeth at work for her university’s newspaper and literary magazine. Her other interests include traveling, caffeinated beverages, and mythology
When Lena’s younger sister Fressa is found dead, their whole Viking clan mourns—but it is Lena alone who never recovers. Fressa is the sister that should’ve lived, and Lena cannot rest until she knows exactly what killed Fressa and why—and how to bring her back. She strikes a dark deal with Hela, the Norse goddess of death, and begins a new double life to save her sister.
But as Lena gets closer to bringing Fressa back, she dredges up dangerous discoveries about her own family, and finds herself in the middle of a devastating plan to spur Ragnarök –a deadly chain of events leading to total world destruction.
Still, with her sister’s life in the balance, Lena is willing to risk it all. She’s willing to kill. How far will she go before the darkness consumes her?

Thank you so much ❤️
I’m not familiar with Nordic tales, you have a vastly wider and deeper breadth of knowledge than I do
I learned more with this book
Great review! I love mythology, but sometimes the heavy descriptions and slow pace fail to keep me interested! x
Thank you so much ❤️
I love the title but the slowness of the story does not attract me at all. Nice review, Shalini!
It was pretty slow. I too don’t like very slow books. I tend to driff off then
