Immortal Vikings are among us.

Leif Skarsganger and his elite band of immortal warriors have been charged to protect humanity from the evil Norse god Loki.

Under attack from Loki’s minions, Leif is shocked to encounter a dark-haired beauty who fights like a warrior herself. Wounded and feverish, the Viking kisses her, inadvertently triggering an ancient Norse bond. But when Naya Brisbane breaks away and disappears before the bond is completed, Leif’s warrior spirit goes berserk. If Leif doesn’t find her fast, he’s going to lose himself to permanent battle fury.

But Naya doesn’t want to be found...and he’ll do anything to find her. Because they’re both running out of time.

 (Viking Warriors #1)

Viking Warrior Rising (Viking Warriors, #1)I was hooked from the words,”Immortal Vikings are among us.” Mythology and government experiments are the backdrop for a new series that will pit the wills and hearts of immortal warriors against “mere” humans in contemporary times. Leif is the warrior King, his men have been with him for thousands of years, fighting alongside him, protecting him, yet one tiny woman not only saves his life, but teaches him to feel and trust his heart after centuries of burying it deep within the hardened shell of loss.

It took one semi-conscious kiss to begin a bond that even the feisty and unique Naya has trouble fighting. Naya is not a normal human, she is altered and within her body beats the heart, soul and strength of a warrior. But she is on a mission to free someone she loves and she firmly plans on doing it alone. Can the huge Viking King tame the beast within Naya? Can she keep her secrets from Leif or will she tell all, risking losing him forever? Naya has never felt the love and companionship that Leif offers, and she certainly isn’t going to become a meek and timid damsel. The only thing hotter than their tempers is the smoldering heat they create between the sheets. Loki be damned, this Viking King is determined Naya will be his Queen.

Viking Warrior Rising by Asa Marie Bradley is filled with great banter between characters, a sense of fierce loyalty between the Vikings and one bitter female unwilling to take what is offered. She gives as good as she gets when arguing, she can stand with the best of them in battle and her secrets are tearing her up. Asa Marie Bradley has created a richly detailed world, filled with snippets from Norse mythology, the brutal government experimentation destroying lives. What’s not to like? Sensual tension runs high and taut as two beings from different worlds collide in passion and desire. They say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall and this Viking is down for the count!

I received this copy from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
