It's always difficult to review an anthology particularly when there are quite a lot of stories in it. I picked this up expecting sexy alpha type Vikings but these talented authors each bring a unique perspective into just what a modern day Viking would get up to! First off, I did expect to read paranormal tales so the addition of werewolves came as no great surprise. Of course the Gods are always fun to read about and the addition of the of Demi gods opens up avenues that allow the reader into a rare and possibly lonely world. If Vikings were roaming the modern world, it would be easy to imagine them astride motorcycles as the idea of a Viking MC really works and I know many readers have a soft spot for those bad boys! What I was completely surprised by was a story that felt almost steam punk and had an underlying message so that certainly made me sit up and take notice. I love it when an author can take a sexy story and yet at the same time feed my soul. It's a rare talent to write a paranormal romance that tackles the dark side of human nature whilst entertaining the reader.
So there's something for everyone here I feel and although it's a given that some stories will resonate more than others, I do feel it’s a very good mixture. Yes, one or two are very steamy but there's action and suspense to follow too. I suspect many readers will wish the stories could be longer but they are without a doubt entertaining with twists to satisfy the most discerning paranormal reader. Unusual situations and very interesting characters that certainly caught my imagination. Do I have a favourite? Well of course but I'm so pleased to have discovered new authors to follow.
I'd recommend this book if you want something to just dip into, but I suspect like myself once you start you will stay up late trying to read all about these fabulous Vikings!
