Publisher's Summary

When a weakness of Valkyrie sight is uncovered, Kara, Kate and an unlikely ally, must race against time to stop a saboteur before Valhalla falls.

Arina copes with being a new type of Valkyrie and defies Odin while reminding the ruling caste what the ideals of the Asgard are and what they should all aspire to be. She must help a young Ragnarok, who was sent to die at the gates of Valhalla, to learn the truth about the Asgard and her own people.

Old enemies and lost friends weave a web that could spell the end for one of Odin's own.

Can't wait to listen to more

Where does The Valkyrie Chronicles rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely near the top of my library.

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, definitely as good as the first book fans of the first won't be disappointed.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint is that i really can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.... ;)

Loving the series so far!

This series keeps getting better and better! I love the different take on Norse mythology. The characters are great and the narration by Hollie Jackson is superb! Looking forward to the rest of the series!

2nd Book in Valkyrie Chronicles one word FUN!

If you could sum up The Valkyrie Chronicles in three words, what would they be?

Tacky Funny Soap/Drama. Sorta of cheated on the last word. But the story is a little B-Movie Tacky yet amazingly FUN soap opera-ish Drama that pokes fun in it's own way at the whole genre while being tenderly interesting. Radclfyee good this is not. The woman in the story might get a kiss here or there and a funny passionate feeling there but there is not one real sex scene in this novel yet the whole thing is about a group of lesbian women saving the day for Asgar. There is even a few bits of mythology tossed in on the side but it remains a true science fiction story. Still it's a fun story and you find yourself liking these Valkyrie.

What did you like best about this story?

Mostly the parts that made me laugh because they where so tacky. The little lines about "but first I have to take care of my passionate mate Kate" And when Whispering breeze is recovering from near fatal wounds Cara or maybe it's Kate says to her "You can't die because if we were to take a third to our bed it would be you." Just off the wall lines that make it tacky but oh so fun to listen to, and have a good laugh.

Which scene was your favorite?

When the Ragnar girl claims the Whispering Breeze as her mate, or finally admits she wants her and is willing to fight of anyone who comes near her dying mate. It was a kind predictable scene but fun and funny.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

In the future where the earth is hopelessly out number and out gun, Earths only hope is a handful of Valkyrie who have landed Asgar on Earth to help out. OK TOO LONG, Short version Space Monster attack Earth but Earth is Saved by Valkyrie.

Any additional comments?

This a well written piece of fluff but it's fun fluff with lesbians in a positive light. It made me smile if not laugh. If you enjoyed the first book you will love the second but read/listen to the first one first.

I have fallen in love with this series almost as much as the Techromancy Scrolls.

Good Lesbian Urban Fantasy Story

It had good storyline. Happy to hear family dedication, action, love, valor, & heroism. One of the reasons it didn’t earn 4 stars from me is that I lost track of who was talking multiple times. The confusion was frustrating because I to rewind & replay to keep up with what was going on. I still enjoyed it and will purchase the next book in series.
