Are you introspective? Do you not consider yourself anti-social but find small talk to be not only boring but annoying? If you do than you can relate to Jace, the main character found in this book. She is an amazingly oblivious intellectual that lives life in her own way and at her own pace. The hardships that she has suffered through would make a grown man cry but Jace just keeps on dealing with the hardships of her second life. Didn’t I mention that she was murdered and brought back to life by a Norse Goddess? Silly me, these details sometimes get away from me.
If you want to read about an introspective loner that lives in a huge house full of women, serves as a warrior for a Norse deity, finds kinship in a house full of intellectuals under service of another Norse deity and will literally jump out of a moving car to get away from small-talk, then this is the book for you. The fast moving plot keeps your attention while the quirky characters keep you laughing out loud.
If you have trouble with women calling each other ‘bitch’ and ‘heifer’ then you might not like this book. (or anything that Shelly Laurenston writes, because, yeah, they are two of her favorite words.)
