The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ludvig “Vig” Rundstrom finds Kera Watson stabbed and dying behind the coffee house she worked at in Los Angeles. He calls upon Skuld to give her a second chance with the Crows.
Shelly Laurenston did an exception job with the contemporary story founded on Norse mythology.
Kera makes an interesting Crow. Having been a marine, she is much more organized then the average Crow, a fact that makes the others amusingly nervous. I love that they all call her new girl no matter her protest.
Vig is part of the Raven Clan: for the most part, the male counterparts of the female Crow Clan. I found Kera’s first impression of him humorous. They are both good for each other. I love their time together in Asgard.
Kera’s dog Brodie is the best. I think it was funny that everyone always wanted to take her out. I had a dog in college. All my friends used to borrow her. One time my roommate was stopped by someone who asked her “Who’s dog is this anyway; I never see her with the same person.” That is also, Brodie. So I can relate.
I love Shelly Laurenston humor. The dialog is very entertaining and kept me laughing. The characters all have interesting quirks. This is a great book to put you in a good mood.
The plot was interesting and original. There was a lot going on that kept me intrigued. The ending was unexpected, and I look forward to the next book to find out what happens.
