Book Review: Dead Embers by T.G Ayer

Title: Dead Embers (Valkyrie #2)
Author: T.G Ayer
Release Date: e-book: August 15th 2012, print: August 30th 2012
Publisher: Evolved Publishing
Source: Received from the author for an honest review.

Valkyrie-in-training Bryn Halbrook just can't catch a break. With her boyfriend stuck in Hel and the taunting laughter of Loki still ringing in her ears, she struggles to concentrate on her training and duties in Odin's realm. The last thing she expects or wants is more adventure—but then treachery, a shocking abduction and a chilling discovery send her forth on another perilous, globe-hopping mission.

As the ultimate battle, Ragnarok, draws closer, it's a race against time for Bryn, Fenrir and their team to discover who kidnapped her foster brother from the halls of Asgard and what's causing the mysterious deaths of so many of Odin's chosen warriors.

In the exciting sequel to DEAD RADIANCE, Bryn encounters dwarfs and dragons, new friends and old foes—but worst enemy of all may be the person she trusts most!

My Thoughts

I reviewed the first book in this series Dead Radiance, earlier this year and you can read it here.
I should also state that after reading Dead Radiance, I had the incredible pleasure of meeting this talented and very sweet and unassuming author in person, but that has in no way colored my judgement in writing this review, as always, this review is unbiased, honest, and my own opinion.
                                           ~<3 ~      ~<3 ~

Dead Embers picks up immediately from where Dead Radiance finished, throwing the reader headlong into the emotional and heart wrenching moment that shocked many to the core.

Second guessing every decision she has ever made has left Bryn confused and in a tailspin of self doubt - and without her most trusted friend at her side, she struggles to cope as Ragnorak quickly approaches.
Warned by the god's to trust no-one, Bryn is yet again thrust into a journey fraught with betrayal, leading her to question not only her own actions but the actions and intentions of all those around her.

The depth of emotion with which T.G Ayer writes, is such that I was immediately sucked into her hauntingly beautiful world of Norse mythology yet again.
Insanely intense at times, I was kept on the edge of my seat - desperately trying to anticipate the next unnecessary death, the next friend to turn.
Darker than book #1 - Dead Embers will have you in knots as you try to unravel all the plot twists and turns.
And I knew there would be an ultimate twist, a reason for all the betrayal and deceit, but I was still shocked by the sheer hatred that this well organized and despicable plan entailed
and O.M.G - what an ending - Holy Helheim!!

Full of suspense, intrigue, and astounding revelations - Dead Embers is an incredibly emotional, and shockingly additive adventure that will be enjoyed by readers both young and old.

Another richly deserved 5 Star read ~<;]
