Valkyrie Brynn Aksel is ready for some downtime. But when an urgent warning arrives from Asgard, heralding the death of a beloved god and the dawn of Ragnarok—the not-so-mythological end of days—it becomes clear there’s no rest for the gods . . . not when future of the realms is on the line.
Goddess of Love Freya Skönsten can’t shake the darkness that’s clung to her since her Helheim imprisonment. An unsanctioned romantic connection with a mortal is the only thing keeping her in the light, but Freya’s vow to the Norns prevents her from fully uniting with her perfekt match. When Hel returns to finish what she started, Freya must decide how much she’s ready to sacrifice to save the family she loves . . . and whether she’s willing to give up everything for the worlds she’s sworn to protect.
With the forces of darkness aligning to destroy the realms, it’s clear more than just Love hangs in the balance. Ragnarok has arrived. And it's shaping up to be the perfekt storm.
Perfekt epic finale with love AND Ragnarok excitement
Perfekt Match is the perfekt finale for the Aere saga, with the crew's typical epic action escalating to realms-wide Ragnarok-level war, humor to balance, and romance to tie it all up--especially when the Norse Goddess of Love is involved! As with other S.T. Bende books, the crew reminds the reader about their own life--things to appreciate and enjoy and aspire to and have AEre for--while still being an energetic, magical, mythical, exciting whirlwind. The new dual POV in this book, as compared to the single in predecessors, gives a full view of the action and growth of all the characters (and incorporation of new), with one side from more of a down-to-Midgard view and the other more of a fantastical-Asgardian view. I won't say more than the ending made me sigh with completeness. It's true, I'm a Norse myth nerd, but regardless of that, this book really managed to round out the series, wrapping up all the plot lines and life lines, while simultaneously keeping the reader on their toes and their heart beating from emotion as well as twists and turns! Bende has outdone herself. One of my favorites!
