Battlestorm by Susan Krinard

Midgard, Book 3

Synopsis: Centuries ago, the Norse gods and goddesses fought their Last Battle with the trickster god Loki and his frost giants. All were believed lost, except for a few survivors…including the Valkyrie Mist, forgotten daughter of the goddess Freya.

But the battle isn’t over, and Mist—living a mortal life in San Francisco—is at the center of a new war, with the fate of earth hanging in the balance. As old enemies and allies reappear around the city, Mist must determine who to trust, all while learning to control her own growing power.

It will take all of Mist’s courage, determination, and newfound magical abilities to stop Loki before history repeats itself.

Review: I had a great time with the first two volumes of the series and I admit that I was curious to get into this third installment. It must be said that the mere mention of mythology is very attractive and I was so happy to find all the characters again here!

Now that Dainn went in the opposite camp, Mist no longer knows what she must believe. Freya is always trying somehow to merge with her and the young woman is not sure of the consequences. Thus war is more present and both opponents are trying to tip the balance on their side. I admit that the author really leads us by the nose in her story and I was really surprised by all the unexpected revelations and I think no one will see them coming.

As I said the war is here and we learn the designs of Freya, and we therefore understand that ultimately nothing is really what it seems. But Danny is also a big focus of the story. While Mist is rising in power, those of this little boy are really amazing and we looked forward to see how far they would expend. I was quite surprised to see that finally everyone counts on that child, he is considered as either a savior or as the person to kill.

I had a great time while reading this story as always and I’m really surprised by the turn of the final. It was a very good one of course and it was once again a great discovery!
