Can’t go wrong with an ass-kicking Valkyrie warrior belonging to the Goddess Freya. Her sarcasm and wit kept me entertained and grinning the whole time. I absolutely loved her. Viking Warrior Rebel by Asa Maria Bradley is the perfect mix of the paranormal and sexy. Read the rest of my review below. She’s a rebel... Astrid is a rebel warrior. She has to be, it says so in the title! But what is she rebelling against? If you read the first book you know all about the själsfrände bond. The Viking equivalent of soulmates. The only rub is that if these immortal Vikings do not find their soulmates they are forever in battle fever and are forced back into Valhalla for an internal sleep. We don’t want that happening to Astrid, but her stubborn nature refuses to accept her soulmate when she finds him. As usual with any conflict in a romance, trust is an issue. Luke Holden, I presume? Yes, he is the reason for all that mentioned above. An equally stubborn, secretive, SEXY alpha man. He knows he has an attraction to Astrid, an unusual one. Just like Naya before him, he was also genetically modified in a lab. So his hangups revolve around that. It seems to me, that the superhuman are the only ones that can mate with the Vikings. We’ll see how that progresses in the rest of the series. Creepy wolverines... Yuck. They sound gross looking and are evil to boot! Also genetically modified they still are part of the evil that the Vikings must clean up. The plot is carried over from the previous book and Loki (half God) is still believed to be responsible. We, the reader, will not find out in this book. So, I do recommend reading book 1 first. It’s a progressing storyline. Top 5 curses/oaths in the name of Freya 5. Freya’s fury 4. Freya’s mercy 3. Freya’s wagon 2. Freya’s cats And my personal favorite... 1. Freya’s crazy wagon-pulling cats Overall, stellar book for the series. Of course my eagerness for the next in the series has come back, because I really want to know what happens. Not really a cliffhanger, since Luke and Astrid’s story sums up, but the threat is still there and unresolved.

As Loki is not permitted to roam the earth – Midgard – he has henchmen do his dirty deed, wolverines.

Alas, luck is not on Astrid’s In a forest in Washington State lies a fortress where immortal Vikings hide. They must stop half-god Loki from annihilating the human realm. As Loki is not permitted to roam the earth – Midgard – he has henchmen do his dirty deed, wolverines. The immortals’ new queen, Naya, asked her friend Astrid Idrisdotter to find her brother Scott for her impending wedding. Astrid is determined to go at it alone to redeem herself for her previous mission, which went quite badly. Alas, luck is not on Astrid’s side when she runs into a few problems: new, improved wolverines, Scott who has vanished, and Luke Holden, with whom she had had a one-night-stand… If only to give you an idea how good VIKING WARRIOR REBEL is, I am not a fan of mythology per se, and I loved this book! Ms. Bradley knows her subject, but better still she is able to smoothly weave mythology, paranormal, suspense and romance seamlessly, thus creating a fresh new world. I ran into some difficulties at the beginning of the story for a somewhat peculiar reason: while they are masterfully written, there were too many action scenes, mostly fighting and sparring scenes, to my taste. However, around halfway through the book, things really take off. I hope Ms. Bradley won’t mind, but almost from the onset I pictured Jason Statham as Luke: Luke is a tough, no-nonsense alpha male, an undercover special agent, but he has a tender side and he is very sweet. He has a terrific backstory, and I would have wished to know even more. Astrid is just a fabulous heroine, and she will forever remain my perception of a Valkyrie. The romance in VIKING WARRIOR REBEL is simply glorious! The lust that Luke and Astrid experience is palpable, but they work well together, they respect each other’s talents, they are equally strong and wilful, and in spite of major bumps on the road, they trust each other, they have each other’s back. The banter is terrific all around, the characters are all well defined, but what I liked the most is the distinctive spins Ms. Bradley put on a few commonplace paranormal elements. Life mates – själsfrände – are not exactly what we’re used to see, and both Luke and Astrid are somewhat baffled by what it entails. Berserkers, a sort of collective conscience shared by the immortal Viking warriors goes deeper than what we usually see in shifters: it’s more existential than a mere communication device, if you will; it’s the essence of the Viking warriors’ soul and I loved how that it’s much more fluid and that it is not static. And it helps a lot to see real Swedish, and not some made-up Scandinavian drivel. I wonder if there will be some Finnish mythology in the future as well… I have no idea what Ms. Bradley has in store for us in the third instalment (there will be a third book, won’t it?), but I will be waiting because the possibilities are endless! VIKING WARRIOR REBEL is an innovative, exciting paranormal romance that goes beyond the usual fare; a terrific book! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I give 4 ½ stars

    Viking Warrior Rebel is a blend of Vikings and and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, only without any vamps. Wow! I was drawn right into the story from the first page and read in just a few sittings. SOOO good! Bradley immerses you with vibrant characters, kick-butt action scenes and a swoon-worthy romance. I need to read the whole series, like right now! Highly recommend! My Rating: 5+ stars

Then again I just finished a confoundingly messed-up PNR book (different series and author) I guess that helped to tone down my expectation in a big way. Reading is a very personal experience and all... Viking Warrior Rebel was the story about Astrid Irisdotter, the hot head Valkyrie on Leif's band of warriors. On a mission to bring Naya's brother back, she was attacked by one of Loki's feral minions and was saved by Luke Holden, an undercover FBI agent who had been investigating the covert bio lab and - unbeknownst to her - Naya and Astrid's connection to it. While I felt Luke's juggling his professional and personal motives while dealing with Astrid, his FBI agent persona was barely there. Same could be said for his fellow agents here; they seemed too laid-back. Considering the urgency of solving the case went hand in hand with personal vengeance, I felt the drive to do so was not that strong. However, on the personal level, the sexual tension between Astrid and Luke was pretty intense. Not that they acted on it all the darn time - which I really applauded of, thank gads! (I hate characters who let their lower members do the thinking.) And their romance also had less drama than I expected, considering the secrets both kept from each other and objections from Astrid's closest thing to a family. But I was really entertained on their interactions alone, so I was able to - sort of - disregard a few things. Such as Luke's acceptance to what's supposed to be a jaw-dropping truth was way too easy though. And then there's the matter of the emergence a new berserker. (view spoiler)[Yes, Luke had similar past as Naya, but as a couple of people said here the case could not be treated the same since Naya was a woman and bonded to the King; (hide spoiler)] yet all of the sudden everybody was peachy. No, it's not that I resent Astrid and Luke their happy beginning. I only wish certain details to be explored more, greedy reader that I am. But compared to previous book, it's no question that I liked this one more. The hero and heroine's presence were more equal in every way; more so that both raised up from unfortunate background. I look forward to the next tales in this series and hope them to be similarly enjoyable - if not more - than this one.

Astrid was my favorite character from the first book. She was fun, sassy and she could hold her own with rest of the guys and wanted to know more about what made her tick. After finding out about her life and how she worked hard to earn her status as a shield maiden I couldn’t help but admire her even more, but as much as I admired her, she also ended up frustrating me in equal amounts. She has this need to prove herself, which is understandable considering the state of her Berserker and how it affects her, but there were somethings that she took upon herself that she really didn’t need to. Thankfully, she got her shit together and proved why she was chosen by Freya to be a Valkyrie. Luke has a lot of secrets, not only that he is an undercover FBI agent, but ones that are driving him to make the choices that may or may not backfire on him at some point. His loyalty to his personal cause is heartbreaking and it’s hard to not empathize with him. I liked Luke. He was sweet, dedication and all kinds of sexy alpha male and definitely held his own when faced with an overabundance of crazy. With all the secrets between the two of them, it was a given that their road would be a bumpy one. I found Luke’s reaction to Astrid’s confession about who she was interesting and her’s pretty spot on when Luke revealed his. The sexual tension between them was explosive, but even though it was frustrating, I liked that they didn’t always act on their urges. I loved how the Vikings and Valkyrie added their two cents into their growing relationship, both helpful and not. And when they finally got their HEA, it was perfectly done. The start of this one was slow moving for me, it was probably just one of those days, but I kept wanting things to go a little faster, not only with Luke and Astrid’s storyline, but the overall one with Loki and his scary wolverine creatures. It did pick up and by the end I couldn’t put it down because I needed to know how it all would work out. I loved catching up with Leif and Naya. Ulf had me wanting to stab him a few times due to his overabundance of testosterone and Irja peaked my interest. I think I may know what is going on with her, but I’ll be patient and see if my hunch is right. I enjoyed getting to hang out with the rest of the Vikings and am looking forward to seeing what’s coming next for them. ~ ARC received from the publisher via NetGalley ~

I’ve seen quite a few viking books in the last year, but whereas vampires are easy to incorporate into stories (you can make up your mythology as you go if you need to), vikings are more confined by their link to specific geographical locations and religious backgrounds. The mythology really didn’t work for me. The vikings and valkyries are fighting injustice and evil probably sent by Loki. That part isn’t super clear, and instead of getting direct help from the gods, the warriors are forced to search the “darknet” for rumors of nefarious new developements, like this was a 1998 hacker direct to tv movie. It’s 2016 - are people still using “the deep web” as a term? Do they mean anonymous boards? And how do they get high speed internet in a secret compound in the middle of the forest that is so off the beaten track that it’s not even supposed to be there? The mythology and the plot were a bit flaky, which is unfortunate because the characters were extremely solid and interesting: Astrid and Luke are both great and I loved all the hoops their relationship had to jump through in order to get realized. I am not usually a fan of relationships that are wholly built on lies, but there are good reasons for the things Astrid and Luke are not telling each other. They don’t even know if they are on the same team for part of the book; Luke is the owner of a shady nightclub that may or may not have ties to people who traffick sex slaves. That would make any girl think twice about telling their truth about her origin and her true age (which is up there in the hundreds). The other warriors are worried about Astrid, whose “berserker” lies closer to the surface than the others’; she is less predictable, less of a team player than the other (mostly) men, but she is no less of a warrior. She has been training as hard and long as them, and she knows she can take them. Her semi-tragic background only adds to the character, and felt like a real origin story and not a sob story added in for pity points. This was a difficult book to rate; I didn’t care about the overarching plot or the specific rescue that takes place, but I desperately wanted to learn more about the main characters, and even the secondary characters were appealing. I’d love to learn more about them, but I’m not sure I want to have to read about more gods arguing in the background to do it.

They have been sent by Odin and Freya to protect humans from the evil god Loki and his minions. These battle brothers and sisters live and fight together as they continue to seek out the evil ones sent by Loki and try to eradicate the evil ones from the planet. Astrid Irisdotter is a Valkyrie who is on a mission for her queen. She needs to get the queen’s brother from a medical clinic outside of Denver and safely deliver him to the compound in Pine Rapids in time for the queen to marry the king. Astrid has been having issues with her berserker lately and she had to be physically stopped from harming a human. This has her in an unusual spot with the other Vikings and she feels like she’s on probation. She knows that getting the queen’s brother back safely is a way to feel redeemed. She’s determined not to mess it up. Then she runs into Luke Holden by chance. At least she thinks it’s a chance meeting. He’s an undercover agent trying to expose genetic labs that he believes Astrid is involved in. His undercover persona is a nightclub owner who has shady dealings with ‘interesting’ people. After everything goes sideways with Astrid’s mission, Luke finds her in a compromised position and saves her. But saving her and gaining her trust are two very opposite things. They are both hiding major secrets from each other, but Astrid’s berserker want to make Luke hers. Will these two ever trust each other enough to move forward? Or will they be in a crazy relationship limbo forever? Both Astrid and Luke are Alphas so watching them battle for dominance is almost like a movie. Grab a bowl of popcorn and read on. Each one of them is fighting for good, but each of them thinks the other is fighting for evil. They clash at every turn, but the sexual attraction is so strong, they can’t keep away from each other. I love, love, loved this story. Couldn’t put the book down and was so sad when I finished it. I see why Asa Maria Bradley is seen as a top up-and-coming author. She writes characters who are so real to the reader and actually had me looking for these immortal Vikings when I was out and about. I have already ordered her first book in this series and look forward to reading many more books from this new author. Keeper shelves everywhere are going to be making more room. -- ROBYN

A thousand years ago, she was a thrall (a slave), she learned to defend herself, to protect herself, and became so skilled, she became a Shield Maiden and earned enough to buy her freedom. Having died honorably on the battlefield, she ascended into Valhalla and was chosen and trained by Freya to become a Valkyrie.

They were experimented on, and while Luke grew stronger and faster, his brother experienced issues. They escaped when they were 14, but, his brother continued having issues and committed suicide. Luke, got his GED, joined the Marines, and now belongs to a covert FBI unit trying to discover the labs and who is funding them. Luke and Astrid have the same enemies, but they are unaware of this and as such they circle each other trying to discover the others truths, desires and plans...can they learn to trust each other?

He is obsessed with finding the labs that held his brother and he. That is his priority over anything else and I was a bit annoyed at him for it. The 'family' and how close they are and protective of Astrid was probably my favorite part. It was a 4/5 for me. I am going to look for more in this series because the characters just stay with you.

Although parts of the plot where slightly predictable I enjoyed listening to Astrid fighting to gain the acceptance/admiration of her battle brothers after some skew-ups, seeking hidden labs and fighting her attraction to Luke all while making sure he doesn't discover the truth about her past. This book was exactly what I was looking for this week, and it hooked me in!

    Wasn't sure I was going to like this one as much as the first one. Not because I don't think Astrid is a good character or anything but the track the plot started down irked me. She blamed herself for some dumb things but since other characters called her on it, it can be forgiven. It's a small pet peeve but repetition of phrases in a small book are very glaring for me. No reason to say the same line, verbatim, twice or more IMHO. I really hope there are more. I really, really want one for Irja Wasn't sure I was going to like this one as much as the first one.

I really, really want one for Irja and Scott although even I can't think of a real reason other than they both deserve love (as lame as that sounds).

    😍♥️I'm so HAPPY I FOUND THIS SERIES!♥️😍 Wow this series of Novel's are "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!" I am very curious as to where the next book is going to lead us but I will patiently wait for it because these novels literally leave me dying to know who's next to get their soul mate? Who is behind the Labs? What the hell is Loki up too? To many questions unanswered. 😍♥️I'm so HAPPY I FOUND THIS SERIES!♥️😍 Wow this series of Novel's are "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!"

    I met this author at #RT17 and the book sounded intriguing. It has Vikings/Valkyries in it. This book is number two which I didn't realize until I was in to it, but the story sucked me right in. I will go back and read the first one soon. Great book, highly recommend. I met this author at #RT17 and the book sounded intriguing. It has Vikings/Valkyries in it.

    To my surprise I actually found I like the second book on this series more than the first. I actually liked Astrid and I wasn't sure I was going to. I still think the ending needed some work bc some things got a little random but otherwise a totally good read.

    I couldn't really get into the plot or the characters much, but I did finish the book and enjoyed some of the vivid scenes. I just wish the main character had more depth and the dialogue was a bit more smooth.

    It was fantastic to read a book with immortal warriors. While I didn't have a chance to read the first book yet, I had no trouble following this one. This is sexy with strong characters who kick some serious butt. It was fantastic to read a book with immortal warriors.

    Fun, easy read, although not a lot actually happens in terms of the overarching suspense plot and all of the government stuff is both vague and kind of ridiculous-sounding. The actual romance is fun, though, and as usual the side character interactions are great.

    I actually preferred this over the first book. The characters were likeable and Astrid and Luke's romance was super sexy. Her insecurities and drama, constantly imagining she'll be kicked out of the Vikings club and the secrets was rather over the top. But overall a fun, enjoyable read.
