Rating: 4 stars
The Last Valkyrie is my first book I have read from Jennifer Sage and I was actually amazed at how I loved this book. I wanted to not like this book but I just fell in love with the story and of course I was just intrigued by the mythology and I wanted to find how the author would use the mythology to the story. Trust me this story truly grabbed my attention that I was actually surprised at how I enjoyed this fantasy tale of danger and action. This was no ordinary paranormal story. It was actually different and I loved every moment of it.
Kara is the last Valkyrie and she has to somehow save the world by releasing Odin's warriors before the end of days. With help from Zane, a dragon king and Rune, an elf king, she has to defeat forces of evil and unlock her power. I cannot really say what this book is about. All I know is that you have to read. You have to open up and actually see how special this book is and I do not want to ruin the moment for you. I loved this book because it kind of reminded me of Game of Thrones, Thor and Lord of the Rings which happen to be my favourite shows so I was actually excited that I could depict influences from the shows. It also reminded me of the times I was so into mythology and thus becoming so prolific and memorable to. Jennifer Sage truly wrote truly an inspiring and a captivating story that evoked both culture and history.
The characters were so addictive. I loved all their special dynamics. But to me the main character of this story was Kara. I loved how strong Kara was and how fearless she was. Yes she started out a bit naïve but he was totally a character that has so much and realness to her. I truly was impressed about that. I loved how she interacted with Zane and Rune and they were moments I found myself laughing.
However, a small problem was that it took too long for me to connect with the story. I was a bit confused from the start of the book and would have wanted a few things more clear but this was truly a fantastic read. Judging by the cliifhanger, I cannot wait for book 2 because I do want to know what happens next to Kara.
