Book review - Valkyrie The Runawayby Kate O'Hearn
Review by Becky

In the world of Asgard, living among Odin, Thor and Loki are the Valkyries of legend. Norse goddesses, reapers of souls from human battlefields - they have the power to cause death with just one touch. Fourteen-year-old Freya is a Valkyrie - but she has not followed in the footsteps of the legends before her. She has been to the World of Man to befriend humans - and not to reap their souls. Now she must return to the World of Man on a new quest to track down the runaway Valkyrie of legend. There she will discover a dark secret that leads her to the Land of the Frost Giants where she must take on new enemies. But this time she has friends to rely on, and lots more to gain. Enter a new Valkyrie legend ...'Kate O'Hearn serves up a winning mix of modern adventure and classic fantasy.' Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson

 

Available on Amazon.com: The Runaway (Valkyrie)

 

Becky's Review

Oh My Word. Kate O'Hearn has OFFICIALLY joined the ranks of my favourite and super exciting and refreshing Valkyrie authors with this first class sequel to Valkyrie. The characters we loved in the first book are back to face even more danger, experience even more adventure, discover even more secrets and teach us as readers even more powerful lessons so simple and beautiful that connect to us all as humans.
Whereas Valkyrie 1 explored the issues of bullying and social family collapse with Archie's alcoholic mother - Valkyrie The Runaway expands into the wider and deeper value of family whether blood or not. I won't say any more as it is a key part of the excellent gripping plot that had me dedicate many hugely enjoyable hours doing nothing but reading chapter after chapter. And that is the real magic of Kate's writing is that although I am an adult I am enchanted and hooked on the story as much as any young child or teenager would be. Her Valkyrie books each have so much for everyone of all ages and gender.
This sequel is truly fantastic and raises the bar even higher for these fab characters and the world they live in. And as Book 2 has raised the bar higher than first expected I can guarantee that Book 3 will literally be a world changer for readers and characters alike.
If you or a young sibling or relative have any interest in Norse Mythology then I insist you read Valkyrie & Valkyrie: The Runaway asap.
