Pub. Date:
From the bestselling author of the Pegasus books, Kate O'Hearn, comes an exciting new series that puts a fresh twist on Norse mythology. Valkyrie: Norse Goddess. Reaper of Souls. Defender of the Weak. Not someone you want to mess with… Freya is dreading her upcoming birthday when she'll officially have to take up her duties as a Valkyrie. She doesn't want to follow in the footsteps of the legends before her--legends including her mother and sisters. And she certainly doesn't want anything to do with humans! Freya thinks humans are cruel, hate-filled creatures, but as she observes their world, she begins to wonder what it would be like to make friends with the girls or laugh with the boys she sees. And what would it be like to live without the fear that she could cause someone's death with a single touch? Then when she's sent on her first mission, she reaps the soul of a fallen soldier with unfinished business…business that sends her on an epic quest to the mortal world. Will Freya find the true meaning of being a human, or will she finally accept the legend she is destined to become?

display_description "Freya is a Valkyrie, a reaper of souls. But she hates what she must do. She doesn't like humans and the pain they inflict on each other, and she never wants to visit another battlefield. But when a soldier begs her to help his family back in the human realm, she agrees and discovers a world of friends. Now she'll have to find a way to keep her promise to the soldier and prevent the wrath of Odin from destroying the world"--Provided by publisher.
