When a weakness of Valkyrie sight is uncovered, Kara, Kate and an unlikely ally, must race against time to stop a saboteur before Valhalla falls.
Arina copes with being a new type of Valkyrie and defies Odin while reminding the ruling caste what the ideals of the Asgard are and what they should all aspire to be. She must help a young Ragnarok, who was sent to die at the gates of Valhalla, to learn the truth about the Asgard and her own people.
Old enemies and lost friends weave a web that could spell the end for one of Odin's own.

"Can't wait to listen to more"
Definitely near the top of my library.
Yes, definitely as good as the first book fans of the first won't be disappointed.
My only complaint is that i really can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.... ;)
"Loving the series so far!"
This series keeps getting better and better! I love the different take on Norse mythology. The characters are great and the narration by Hollie Jackson is superb! Looking forward to the rest of the series!
"2nd Book in Valkyrie Chronicles one word FUN!"
Tacky Funny Soap/Drama. Sorta of cheated on the last word. But the story is a little B-Movie Tacky yet amazingly FUN soap opera-ish Drama that pokes fun in it's own way at the whole genre while being tenderly interesting. Radclfyee good this is not. The woman in the story might get a kiss here or there and a funny passionate feeling there but there is not one real sex scene in this novel yet the whole thing is about a group of lesbian women saving the day for Asgar. There is even a few bits of mythology tossed in on the side but it remains a true science fiction story. Still it's a fun story and you find yourself liking these Valkyrie.
Mostly the parts that made me laugh because they where so tacky. The little lines about "but first I have to take care of my passionate mate Kate" And when Whispering breeze is recovering from near fatal wounds Cara or maybe it's Kate says to her "You can't die because if we were to take a third to our bed it would be you." Just off the wall lines that make it tacky but oh so fun to listen to, and have a good laugh.
When the Ragnar girl claims the Whispering Breeze as her mate, or finally admits she wants her and is willing to fight of anyone who comes near her dying mate. It was a kind predictable scene but fun and funny.
In the future where the earth is hopelessly out number and out gun, Earths only hope is a handful of Valkyrie who have landed Asgar on Earth to help out. OK TOO LONG, Short version Space Monster attack Earth but Earth is Saved by Valkyrie.
This a well written piece of fluff but it's fun fluff with lesbians in a positive light. It made me smile if not laugh. If you enjoyed the first book you will love the second but read/listen to the first one first.
"Excellent follow up"
This is an excellent sequel to Erik's first work of this series, Return of the Asgard.
"Another great book by Erik and Hollie"
Absolutely! Because it's fun and exciting.
Arina. She has such a sweet spirit.
The stand of the sisters. Very very emotional.
You have to see it to believe it...
These books make me laugh and cry and sit on the edge of my seat more than any book has for a long time.
"The concept has potential, but..."
The story falls short of its potential. The author could do so much but settles for characters with little depth and no realism. The same goes for their enemies. It reminds me of a Seventies sitcom.
"Another great Voice over!"
Hmm.. the suspense! I mean I've read the book before and no matter how many times i have it still surprises me everytime! now especially with the voice over from Hollie Jackson. it was Perferct!
The Story well the all around play on Norse Myth... I've always loved ancient Myths! Norse, Greek, Roman... they all just sound to amazing. and who would've thought the great war god Odin was such a softie :D
in this book i would have to say Arina the Whispering Breeze! I love how she made Arina's voice so soft and mellow... as expected of The Innocent.
oh gosh... this is... like one of the hardest questions i have ever seen... uhh... if I pick Arina, Inatra might kill me or the very least maime me... I don't know about Kara or Kate though... uhh....i think... maybe... uhh... I'll pick Geiravor!! I hope Odin doesn't notice when he is in his scientist mode
another great book and voice over by Erik Schubach and Hollie Jackson. i have to say they make a great team :D
