I haven't had any book reviews here on the blog in awhile and I apologize for that! But I will be making up and reviewing several books for the rest of the year and beyond. I have been reading more and I think that is helping my own writing. Now onto the review!
Christmas time is fast approaching and its the time of year that I like to get in some holiday romances. This one is one of the faves that I have read over the years. First off let me tell you that I love anything based on mythology, Norse and Greek mythology being my favorites. As you might guess from the title, this one is based on Norse gods, with Hela, Loki, and Thor all making appearances. Now these are not the gods of the movies, but based on the actual mythology of old and I love it! Hela is an innocent yet strong goddess looking to escape the loneliness of her life. Her father Loki grants this (though why anyone who knows Loki would trust him to be fair I don't know) by allowing her 12 days on Midgard during Yule time. There she meets Bjorn, a striking Viking warrior who intrigues her but who seems to hold nothing but mistrust for her. Hela has 12 days to see if being mortal suits her and to discover if love is in her future. I will not spoil the end, but it's very satisfying. This was a well researched short, where you can tell that the author loves mythology as much as readers such as myself do. Well written, complex characters for such a short book, and a love story that leaps off the page. If you want a sweet and romantic read with a little something extra this holiday season, I highly recommend Hela Takes a Holiday! 5/5 stars!
