Love. Honor. Protect.

As an Environmental Studies major, Allie knows the planet is in trouble – a series of natural disasters recently rocked the northern hemisphere, and species across the globe are going extinct. What Allie doesn’t know is that her world's decline is a casualty of an ancient battle called the Night War – the Norse goddess Nott’s crusade to control the weakest of the light realms. And Allie most definitely doesn’t know that her existence is the only thing stopping Nott from dragging the earth into total darkness.

When four gorgeous guys show up claiming to be Allie’s Asgardian protectors, she thinks they’re delusional. And when they order her to hunt down the pieces of an immortal weapon, she’s convinced they’re insane. But when Allie’s attacked, the guys’ crazy stories of demigods and dark elves begin coming together. And Allie’s not sure what scares her more – losing her life to the Goddess of Night . . . or losing her heart to one of her protectors.

Let the hunt begin.

Loved it! I love a good mythology story. And this one wasn't just good. It was great! I was concerned this series would be too similar to Bende's other series (which I love), but fortunately this one had all the great writing and character building I was used to, but was its own special combination of awesome. I'm super excited about this series.

I loved going on this journey with Allie. First of all, she's awesome. She's no doormat, damsel-in-distress. She's strong and tough, yet fun and compassionate. She's got it all. Then she gets thrown into the Norse World, and boom! She keeps getting better.

Let's not forget her protectors. Seriously, I loved these guys. Allie sure hit the jackpot. The camaraderie and love could be felt through the pages. Just remember... Mack Pack. And Tore! This guy could be silently frustrating, but had a heart of gold. I especially loved watching his transition throughout the novel. He won me over.

And it wasn't all training and relationship building. There's plenty of action. These folks are on a mission. A huge mission, in fact. Lives are on the line! I loved the excitement of this novel and the anticipation of all the things to come. Can't wait for book 2 - Defender!
