It’s taken Viking hunter Sven Knutson six frustrating months to find her. To track down the angel responsible for compromising the Forgotten Brotherhood and waking the drakon. She may be clever. Resourceful. But no one ever gets away from Sven. Ever.
All Rivka longed for as an angel was a chance to serve on Earth and help humans. Instead, it all went impossibly, horribly wrong, and she still doesn’t understand how or even why. All she knows is that she’s on the run—not only from Heaven’s dangerous elite guard, but also from the Brotherhood, who want answers.
She might just have to trust the immortal Viking whose icy blue eyes make her feel almost wickedly human. Because someone wants Rivka dead and the Brotherhood eliminated. Someone powerful enough to take on the most dangerous assassins who have ever lived. Someone who could unleash the fury of both Heaven and Hell…and Rivka is the key.
Each book in the Forgotten Brotherhood series is STANDALONE:* Fury Unleashed* Arctic Bite* Burning Ash* Bjorn Cursed* Ancient Desire* Hunter Avenged
Sven Knutson is a Viking hunter that worked for as an assassin for the goddess Freya for a millennia. After he is released from her service, he joins the Forgotten Brotherhood. The Forgotten Brotherhood is a group of assassins that police the paranormal world. If someone or something paranormal needs killing, they are the ones that do it. They only have a few rules. One is to never betray a fellow assassin & the other is to only kill people that are guilty.
Sven has been tracking an angel for six months. She’s proven to be very resourceful, but Sven always gets his man (or woman in this case). As he follows her around the globe, he starts to wonder if she’s as bad as he is being told.
Rivka was the Keeper of Angelic Records. When she’s offered a chance to leave the celestial realm & go to Earth, she is thrilled. She’s given a chance to help people with the Angel Foundation. What she doesn’t know is that she’s being used by a higher power to find psychic women. When she realizes what the foundation was doing & that the Forgotten Brotherhood is after her, she runs.
I really liked Sven & Rivka, but the book was missing something. I read it quickly, but there was just no depth to this book. It was all very surface oriented to me, if that even makes sense. There was no delving into the past & learning more about these two. It was all very much in the present. I’m not sure if I’ll read the next book in the series. There is not another character that I am interested in reading about. It’s been several weeks since I read this book & I honestly don’t remember that much about it.
Rating: 3 out of 5.
