Freya is dreading turning fourteen - that marks the official end of her childhood and when she takes up full duties of a Valkyrie - a collector of souls from humanity's battlefields. But Freya is unlike any other Valkyrie. She doesn't want to follow in the footsteps of the legends before her. As she observes from Asgard, she tries to understand what it is to be human: to make friends with girls her own age and laugh with boys, without the fear of causing their death with one touch. Little does she know that her dreams will soon be realized: on her first battlefield mission, Freya reaps the soul of a soldier with unfinished business that will send her to the human world on a deadly quest. And there she must battle both ordinary and extraordinary enemies to create a new VALKYRIE legend. 'Kate O'Hearn serves up a winning mix of modern adventure and classic fantasy.' Rick Riordan, author of Percy Jackson… (mais)

I really disliked this. From the frustrating plot to the equally frustrating characters, I did a lot of skimming. The premise of a Valkyrie who doesn't think she can do her job was so interesting, but the story very quickly/strangely moved into a crusade against bullies. And as a result, I don't think it works well as a mythology retelling or as a story about bullying.

The writing is very basic, with short sentences and simple vocabulary, so it could be a good fit for a struggling reader. But, honestly, I disliked it so much I don't think I'd recommend it when there are so many other books about similar mythology that are better. And this isn't the book's fault but OMG I WASTED TIME READING THIS WHEN I COULD HAVE BEEN READING A MILLION OTHER THINGS. I just need some good middle grade that will appeal to 6th graders, people. This decidedly didn't fit the bill and now I'm just cranky and still behind on my school visit reading. UGH. ( )

Warning there might be spoilers in this review. I loved this book so much! It really opened up Norse Mythology for me and to you folks that say there is made up stuff, the author actually says that she did that. She said she made up the Dark Searchers 'cause she couldn't find any evidence of 'Odin's Police Force'. Also she said she added in the Angels of death. I really liked how the book showed a lot of Norse Mythology. One problem I did have was that it was a little bit predictable, but over-all I just LOVED it! ( )

Cute, fun, simple. For fans of Percy Jackson, early Harry Potter, early Fablehaven. ( )

It wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't recommend it, either. The mythology is off just enough to be annoying, the main character is selfish and short-sighted, and the writing is mediocre at best. But, several of the supporting characters are endearing and it's inspired by Norse myths, so it's not quite disappointing enough to just be a one-star book. ( )

Freya is about to turn fourteen, the time when she will take up full duties as a Valkyrie goddess. She will be an angel of death and collector of souls from humanity's battlefields to add to the warriors that fill Valhalla. But Freya is filled with dread at the thought of the soldiers that feast in Valhalla by night and practice their battle skills by day for all eternity. From her home in Asgard she wonders what it is to be human, whilst knowing that to touch one would cause their death.

During her first battlefield mission, Freya reaps the soul of a soldier with unfinished business and promises to help his troubled family. Always impulsive and often recklessness Freya sneaks away with the help of trickster Loki, breaking the rules and crossing Bifrost, the light bridge that connects Asgard to Midguard (Earth). Will helping the soldier's family fulfil her desire for to learn more about humanity?

Would have liked to see more character development and the ending was a bit predictable but a good story with a new concept. ( )
