Book review - The Druid (An Asgard Adventure) by S.G. Rogers
review by Becky

After Dani Avery is stranded in Asgard, will her shieldmaiden skills be enough to earn her a ticket home?

Kidnapped from Earth and abandoned in Asgard, Dani Avery must fight to return home.  When she stumbles upon a band of Elvish outlaws, their leader agrees to take her to the Rainbow Bridge personally. Although Dani is attracted to the handsome Prince Rein, his only interest seems to be in separating her from the magical sword and shield at her side -- or is it? In Asgard City, rules, regulations and bureaucrats stymie Dani's quest.  Increasingly frustrated and desperate, she seeks help among powerful immortals. Unfortunately, Dani becomes ensnared in a devious trap that may leave her stranded and alone in Asgard forever.

Becky's Review

The plot in this one isn't overly complicated and the characters have no great depth but are original enough to empathize with and the plot has enough tricks and twists to keep you reading on to see how it all turns out. The description of Frigg, the ravens and Frigg's hall/tower in the sky reveals a lot about how the author interprets Norse mythology in a modern day world. The description of Asgard City kept making me re-call the city from Never Ending Story but the Viking Policemen did make me laugh if only because it's so untypically vikingy. It is readable within a couple of hours as isn't long but its good entertainment if nothing else.
