3 stars – I liked it

Vampire Sebastian Ellingham just wants to marry Tessa Blythe, the Valkyrie he is madly in love with. But meeting her parents puts a kink in his plans, especially since they have found her a husband. 

So I love that we got another Sebastian and Tessa story but I didn’t love all aspects of this story. With this novella, we get to learn a little bit more about Valkyrie’s and Berserkers and their traditions. I found the trials part of proving their abilities to prospective parents interesting, but at the same time I hated it. It could mean you would have to marry someone who you didn’t love. I definitely did not like Tessa’s parents. They definitely are very set in their ways and see their daughter as less because she doesn’t embrace her Valkyrie side. 

Now I did love seeing the bond between Tessa and Sebastian growing with each new challenge and obstacle they faced. You could really feel the love between these two with this one and I was all into that. Overall, I liked this novella even with hating on her parents and the situation they put Tessa and Sebastian in.
