Synopses & Reviews
New York Times bestselling author SUSAN KRINARD launches her first urban fantasy series with MIST.
Mist lives a normal life. She has a normal job, a normal boyfriend, and a normal apartment in San Francisco. She never thinks about her past if she can help it.
She survived. Thats the end of it.
But then a snowy winter descends upon San Francisco. In June. And in quick succession, Mist is attacked by a frost giant in a public park and runs into an elf disguised as a homeless person on the streets…and then the man Mist believed was her mortal boyfriend reveals himself to be the trickster god, Loki, alive and well after all these years.
Mists normal world is falling apart. But thankfully, Mist isnt quite so normal herself. Shes a Valkyrie, and shes going to need all her skill to thwart Lokis schemes and save modern Earth from the ravages of a battle of the gods.
"A kick-ass Valkyrie with baggage teams up with a brooding elf to battle Loki and a band of Jotunar (frost giants) after they enter the human world of Midgard from the Great Void in Krinard's urban fantasy series opener. Mist, a Valkyrie living in San Francisco, fights off a Jotunn and rescues Dainn, an elf dressed in rags. He was sent by the goddess Freya to protect Mist, but she doesn't think she needs much protecting. Then she learns her live-in boyfriend was really Loki in disguise. As Mist comes into her full power with Dainn's help, he grows unsettled by the part she will play in Freya's strategy to defeat Loki. Krinard's background as a romance novelist lends her an ability to write well-defined, multi-dimensional characters who help this story stand out in a crowded field. All that's missing is a primer on Norse mythology for readers not in the know. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
