Private investigator Grace tracks a kidnapped child to middle-of-nowhere Iowa. Encountering a strange creature she knows can’t be a local animal, she doesn’t need her psychic abilities to figure out the sleepy town is not what it seems. When she meets the intriguing Aiden, she’s plunged into a world of Norse gods and fire demons where the Wild Hunt still rides the night.
Aiden needs Grace’s help to cross the portal between worlds and rescue his daughter. Grace is unlike any woman he’s ever met. He’s drawn to her courage, distressed by her vulnerability, and doubtful of her motives. But he knows that her visions are the key to defeating the enemy and bringing everyone home alive.
Grace wants a future with Aiden, even if it means she’ll never have a normal life. When a test run to the portal takes a terrifying turn, they must learn to finally trust each other or Aiden’s daughter, and their chance at love, will be lost forever…
This novel was a brilliant cross between urban fantasy and paranormal romance and was a book that I overall enjoyed reading.
I did find the concept of the book to be confusing at times and I did find myself wanting to move this book onto the do not finish pile however I am glad I stuck with it as it was overall a good read.
The romance between the two main characters felt forced at times and I did not enjoy these scenes. Especially when she attacked him during their first sexual encounter it seemed like it led to force sex and this was not something I enjoyed reading.
The use of Norse mythology throughout the book was an interesting concept but I thought it was highly flawed in places. It felt like the concept was being developed throughout the novel when I feel like it should have been thought out a bit more before being put in the novel.
Overall it was a good read that I am glad I persevered with the novel and finished it.
