Valkyrie Bryn Halbrook is broken and damaged…
Struggling to accept the loss of her wings, Bryn’s not sure if she can be a real Valkyrie anymore. But when a mysterious prophecy claims she will be the reason the All-Father dies, she is determined to ensure the prediction will not come to pass.
A visit to the three fates who live beneath the great Tree of life, sends Bryn racing against time to find the missing Heimdall and his horn. As Odin’s life hangs in the balance and Ragnarok draws ever closer, Bryn has to find a way to save Heimdall and Odin before she can discover the truth about who she really is.
In the thrilling installment in the Valkyrie series Bryn must battle not only the formidable frost giants and the hated God Loki, but she must also find a balance between what she will lose and what she will gain.
I’m a newbie to the Urban Fantasy genre so I’ve been very pleased with the Valkyrie series. When I was first asked to read and review Dead Chaos which was book 3 in the series I was also given the opportunity to read Dead Radiance (Book 1) and Dead Embers (Book 2) and needless I was pleased to have agreed to review Dead Choas.
I felt so bad at the end of Dead Embers when Valkyrie Bryn Holbrook had lost her wings that when I started reading Dead Chaos and found that it picked up where Dead Embers left off I was very pleased.
Bryn has always been a fighter and has refused to be brought to her knees no matter what has been thrown at her. She is strong but has doubt. She is brave but has fear. She loves but doesn’t feel she deserves to be loved. This is even more true now that she is wingless and feels she can no longer fulfill her destiny as a real Valkyrie but do the wings define the Valkyrie or does the heart?
As Bryn visits the Tree Of Fates she finds answers to many of her questions on her journey but she also finds out things about her friends and allies but are these revelations for the good or the bad? Are those closest to her who they appear to be? Again is a Valkyrie defined by their wings or by their heart? I’ll leave you to find those answers in the fabulous stories told by T.G. Ayers in Dead Chaos and the previous two Valkyrie novels.
I give this novel an A+.
