So when I originally wanted to start a blog, I wanted it to be primarily a book blog, but I changed my mind to include other aspects of my life. This is my first book review, and I'm still trying to figure out my niche in reviewing, like how I want to format it and such. So please bear with me if the first few reviews aren't all formatted the same. :)
Brynn Aksel is a valkyrie—a battle goddess tasked with protecting both the God of War and the future of Asgard. She fends off giants and dark elves with an iron fist, a glossy smile, and no less than perfekt control. She’s focused one-hundred-percent on rising through the valkyrie ranks, and not at all on her lifelong crush on Henrik Andersson—the one guy in all the realms who could be her undoing.
Henrik serves as War’s other bodyguard, and he’s too focused on protecting their shared charge to realize that Brynn’s a girl. When an unprecedented surge of darkness abducts the Goddess of Love, Brynn’s already-steely focus is singularly directed on her new assignment—accompany Henrik to recover the realms’ source of light before the cosmos descends into chaos.
While battling demons, dragons, and the not-quite-dead, it becomes clear that immortality does not equal invincibility. And when Hel herself puts a hit on Brynn, the valkyrie has to decide if staying in control is worth losing everything . . . or if it’s time to rule the realms.
A free copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book! The second novel in the Aere Saga, Perfekt Control was the perfect continuation to the series. I liked getting to know Brynn better. Her inner turmoil regarding Henrik and with Freya being taken and how she developed as a character was well done. I bet we'd be best friends in real life. It was also fun getting to know Henrik better. I love how he wears glasses to look smart. As if he isn't already smart enough, making all those tech gadgets. This book had more action and adventure to it than the previous one, which was a fun change. I enjoyed seeing some more of the realms in the Norse world. I liked seeing the other characters from the first book, especially because Tyr and Mia are my favorite S.T. Bende characters. I hope we find out more about Freya and her abilities. I want to know her story. I can't wait for the third book in this series, Perfekt Balance, and to learn about Forse and Elsa! Four out of five stars.
