Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there. What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them. Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl’s unexpectedly-epic coming of age.
Hmmm...i don't know how I feel about this book. It's definitely interesting. The cover is GORGEOUS!! I went into this with a vague idea of it containing Valkyries. And i LOVE anything with NORSE MYTHOLOGY. SO this was a definite attraction. There was good and bad in it for me. I LOVED Ellie's relationship to Tucker. It was sweet having her discover his true feelings an seeing him in a new light. He acts like a party boy flirt with everyone else but with Ellie he's sweet and seem like he cares for her.
