Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Bjorn Cursed
Series: Forgotten Brotherhood #4
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Published: January 18th 2021
This series has a superb mix of paranormal, mythology and religious beliefs and characters all given their own twist in fascinating supernatural adventure.
The first ever Norse werewolf, created by the Norse god Odin, is Bjorn Knutson. When Odin gives him the task by of killing a woman who has escaped from Freya, he never dreams the woman is the one he could never kill – his wife Anja. So begins his adventure and fight to save her and keep them both together, despite the other supernaturals who are determined to capture her and the gods who are involved, too. Can these two long parted lovers find romance again and live to share a future together or will fates intervene and part them again?
This is a steamy, action packed romance with plenty of twists. There are new characters introduced, new interventions made and arguing gods to add to the mix. It is a good addition to the series and should still work well as a standalone, though I confess I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the earlier books in the series. There’s a lot of time spent with the couple making up for lost time and with gods acting like bickering, spoilt brats but the intervention by a couple of surprise characters definitely added to the mystique and gives the possibility of further stories in the series in future.
Thanks to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
Lucifer is up to his old tricks, causing problems for the Forgotten Brotherhood. This time, he’s had a woman removed from the Norse afterlife and placed her right in the path of Bjorn Knutson. After the slaughter of his wife and family centuries ago, tortured and broken, Bjorn was cursed as the first Norse werewolf. Now he’s been tasked by Odin himself with killing the woman who escaped. Failure is not an option.
Before he can track her, he stumbles across a woman being accosted by three men in the middle of the night. Even though she’s human, he intervenes and is shocked to recognize the face of the one woman he could never kill — his wife Anja.
She’s also the one he’s hunting…and if he doesn’t kill her then both their lives are at stake.
