This is perfect for lovers of romantasy that also have an obsession with Norse Mythology!

Freya has kept the secret that she has a drop of goddess blood and she is the long awaited Shield Maiden. She is betrayed by her shitty husband and is given over and forced to marry Jarl Snorri. He believes he is the one to control Freya’s fate….. but did I mention his HOT warrior son Bjorn??

Will Freya find her place as the shield maiden and control her own fate? Will she give in to her forbidden attraction to Bjorn and will that risk everything she holds close??

Also DID I MENTION FOIL EDGES???

Three teens come back from the dead in their old high school’s band room. Their former music teacher tells them they must complete tasks to remain alive. What follows is a beautiful, gritty, sometimes savage, modern – day fable. (My Favorite of the Year…so far!)
