Enduring, undying love.
A woman caught between two worlds...
The man she can never have...
The Kine and the Alfar, enemies since before Odin sat upon the throne of Asgard...
When Charlee Montgomery discovers Asher Strand’s true nature and the feelings he has for her, she also learns Asher's love puts her in mortal danger.
Prophesied long ago, the ancient bridges connecting Earth to the other eight worlds are opened. The Alfar descend upon Earth and the Kine must emerge from their hidden life to take up their role as Man’s protectors.
Without Asher, the Kine will fall and Man with them.
To defeat the Alfar, Asher must give up any hope of a human life with Charlee.
Love. Duty. An impossible choice that must be made.
Man’s survival depends on it.

My Thoughts

Spanning over 3 decades as well as at over 700 pages long this is a story of such scope and breadth that it thoroughly encompasses every fantasy that comes to mind when one thinks of the Norse gods whose mythology is the basis of it’s origin.

One cannot help but be awed at the detailed world, characters and conflicts that are created to thrill and the star-crossed romance that develops amongst the action packed suspense compels one to hope against hope that all works out for the best even when it seems there is no way in which it can.

As someone who enjoys a good science fiction tale this one fits the bill, it also falls under the categories of paranormal romance, epic fantasy, action adventure and suspense thriller so it covers quite a bit of reading ground within it’s pages.

As we enjoy the journey that starts with Charlee meeting Asher when she was merely 10, and that continues for many years, following a relationship that develops despite it being all but forbidden we find out fascinating facts that enhance not only how we perceive these main characters but the rest of the cast as well.

One can never anticipate what surprises are in store next but can say with full confidence that there is no boredom as the pages unfold and the story plays out, for such a prolonged journey when it ends you feel like a veil has been lifted from your eyes as the real world intrudes once more.

I enjoyed the intricate weaving of multiple story lines that all converge together at the end to create a cohesive whole, it was an undertaking that was a joy to read even while it meant taking breaks to fully digest what was taking place.
