Book review: Slay: A Freya Novel
review by Becky
After Freya escapes from the power-controlling Finemdi Corporation, her quest to defeat her new enemy takes her to Hollywood. The ancient Norse goddess of love, beauty, war, and death disguises herself once again as Sara Vanadi, now an up-and-coming star on a scandalous television series. Freya knows that today’s modern gods live on the screen, and Los Angeles offers her both fame and believers.
And she desperately needs strength from her believers.With sinister forces at her heels, an ancient enemy returned, and an unknown threat lurking in the shadows, Freya must walk a dangerous line between mortal and goddess. Because if she loses her humanity, who will save the world?
Blending fantasy and science fiction in a contemporary Hollywood setting, Slay: A Freya Novel is the second book in Matthew Laurence’s action-packed series about an ancient goddess in a modern world.

This a stunning sequel to the first book. It starts off not long after a volcano destroyed the secret base Freya escaped from. Immediately Her sassy attitude comes through and as a reader you can't help be reconnect and support her.
Now Freya may have escaped the clutches from the god manipulating agency but pretty quick a new enemy and source of danger emerged and this time it is very very very personal. For this person is the cause of Freya's fall from heavenly grace and power for over 600 years.
So Freya decides to launch her quest for overdue revenge with the Egyptian cat goddess and her friend and high priest. They set off for LA in order to make Freya a TV celebrity which will give her enough belief to become strong enough to match her enemy.
It is a real roller-coaster of action, drama, love, vengeance, secrets and surprises and the ending is a really powerful finale for both readers and characters.
I really hope we get a sequel. For Freya's story is far from finished.
