Valkyries have one great responsibility: to return immortals to the afterlife by slaying them. As a Valkyrie, Malin has always known that the balance of the world rests on her ability to carry out orders. But when Malin discovers that her mother spared the life of an immortal who was destined to die, her world is thrown into chaos.

Malin not only wrestles with the knowledge that her mother might not be who she thought—she’s also thrust into the path of a gorgeous blue eyed guy named Asher who needs her help slaying the rogue immortal who destroyed his family. The balance of the world is at stake. And, as Asher competes with Malin’s ex for her love and loyalty, so is her heart.

Between the Blade and the Heart is a brand new series by Amanda Hocking that is based on Norse Mythology and more specifically the training of a young Valkyrie who discovers that her life and all she believed was twisted lies and hidden agendas.

Easy, entertaining a full of potential for another series that will be added to the must pre-order list, I am looking forward to seeing where this story goes.

I'm a fan of Hocking's novels but I had a difficult time connecting with the characters, mostly Malin. I'm chalking this lack of connection up to a newly developing series and hoping that the connection is going to build with the progression of the story/series.

The story is fast paced, action filled, quite unique.

I received this ARC copy of Between the Blade and the Heart from St. Martin's Press. This is my honest and voluntary review. Between the Blade and the Heart is set for publication Jan. 2, 2018
