4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Erin Amsel is a shit-starter. She isn’t known for working well with others either but when she is tasked with an important mission she finds herself working with the angriest Viking ever, Steig. The more time she spends with him though the more she finds that the angry Viking is actually very sweet. 

This was a fast paced and action packed ride for Steig and Erin, and I loved every minute of it. Erin is a crazy and wild woman, but she is also surprisingly compassionate. She may act like she doesn’t care for anyone but she dearly loves her Crow sisters, even when they annoy the shit out of her. I do wish that we had learned why she ended up with the ability for fire though because that was never explained, especially since the two previous heroines’ abilities were explained. 

Steig has been the angry Viking Raven throughout this series. I fell more in love with him in this book because that angry protective Viking is actually surprisingly sweet and kind underneath that anger. I am a sucker for a grumpy but sweet hero and Steig fit the bill perfectly. These two had an intense forced relationship and I really enjoyed it. Also I love how Steig would try to keep Erin out of trouble because he knew it would most likely fail, but he does it anyways. 

My only real complaint was the lack of detail about their pasts. We get brief mentions of both of their pasts but nothing is really explained a lot. But, that said, it didn’t impact the overall story and battle. I just wanted to know more about them personally. Overall, I really enjoyed the ending battle against Gullveig. I do hope we get more books in this series though, especially after that ending scene.
