Viking Warrior Rising by Asa Maria Bradley…Review




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.


My Review:

SQUEEE! That’s exactly how I’ll sound when the next book in this series comes out! Viking Warrior Rising is the first in a new paranormal romance series and the debut for author Asa Maria Bradley. I was pretty blown away by the worldbuilding. It’s complex but easy to follow, giving me one of those rare reads when putting the book down is a hardship. Bradley mixes ancient Norse mythology with modern government conspiracies. It’s fun and fascinating.

In my many, many conversations I’ve had with fellow readers about this book, I’ve likened Viking Warrior Rising to early Black Dagger Brotherhood, and, like that series, this first installment is about the leader, but instead of ancient vampire warriors we have a band of Viking warriors. Leif is their King and when our heroine Naya triggers an ancient Viking bond, things get interesting. Leif’s inner berserker has chosen her as it’s mate and now it’s up to Leif to convince Naya to complete the bond. Understandably she’s a little skittish…at first.

The band of Viking warriors promises lots of great stories to come and I, for one, will be lined up to read them all.
