Become what you believe.
Elsa Fredriksen knows there’s a thin line between love and fear. As High Healer, she rights the wrongs committed by those who choose the darkness. But even Asgard’s secret weapon can’t undo every injury—especially when her fate is completely entwined with the god she’s trying to save.
Elsa’s in love with the Norse God of Justice. But Forse’s heart is ruled by fear—fear that the past will repeat itself; fear that opening his heart will compromise his ability to do his job; fear that he’ll hurt the one girl he desperately wants to protect. Again.
When Elsa faces off against the very monster she once swore to protect, her survival depends on a power she isn’t sure she can control. And when Forse’s worst nightmare unfolds in front of him, Elsa has to decide whether it’s more important to hold the realms in perfekt balance . . . or hold onto the guy she can’t imagine existing without.
Strong women, Swoon worthy men
I want to thank ST Bende for creating her Realms. I cannot wait to read what is the next book in the series. What an adventure she has taken us on. The action and adventure makes this a book I could not put down. Elsa has a warriors heart but the compassion and goodness that literally shine out with every word you read. I love all of ST Bende's books and this one finally brought home to me one of the many reasons her characters are so real to me, the love and caring they show to one another makes us all wish, hope and dream that we too can surround ourselves with the same. The pureness of heart and spirit are clearly apparent. I wnt ot live in the world created by ST Bende, although there are bad and negative things and people the good and just rightness of it outweigh the bad. I love the twists found in the book, family found in the least expected place. Hope given where you you never believe it could be found. One final thing, the book boyfriends she has created are swoon worthy, the female's in her books are strong yet kind and pretty darn amazing. This book will remain one of my favorites and is already on my read again and again list.
I just finished all three books and I love them! I love the stories and the characters. I fell in love with Forse and Elsa. There story was so perfect. Can't wait to read more and see how the relationships develop!
"I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review."
I love this book, this series, and ABSOLUTELY love this author!!! This part of the series features Forse the God of Justice and Elsa a High Healer and God of War's sister. Elsa is such a sweetie, you can't help but love her. Her heart is so good, there's a reason she's a high healer. In fact, she's so great that I was quite frustrated with Forse for being so blind and stubborn by friend-zoning her. Forse, Tyr, and Brynn just do not let her down in this book, and not to mention all the background we learn! I can't wait for book number 4!!!!!
One of the things I love is this book contained more action(fighting against the dark forces in the realms) then the others in the Aere Saga and makes you understand why things happened the way they did with Tyr and Elsa's parents and the way they are today!
