The Unleashing (Call of Crows #1) by Shelly Laurenston

The Unleashing - Shelly Laurenston



Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn’t for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.

In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig “Vig” Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life—but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines.

But Vig can’t give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera’s discipline, Vig’s loyalty… and the Crows’ sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.



My thoughts:


I love anything with Norse Mythology  and Vikings, so having that in one book was great. But it is also about second chances which was another great aspect for me to pick up this book.

I really enjoyed this book, it was fast paced, had plenty of action, and some pretty great humor in it as well as some romance.

I thought it was well balanced and everything had its shining moment and not take away something else from the story. All the charterers were great, they were strong, funny and could kick ass.

I wasn’t sure about Vig at first , he seemed be coming off a little strong but than a gain he is a Viking and what else can we aspect from him. But I started liking him the more we knew about him.
