Review of The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston


Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn’t for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die.

In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig “Vig” Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life—but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines.

But Vig can’t give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera’s discipline, Vig’s loyalty… and the Crows’ sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.

Kindle Edition, 400 pages
Expected publication: March 31st 2015 by Kensington 


This is the first book I have read by this author and all I can say is WOW!!!! I've been missing out! The Unleashing was absolutely fantastic!

I liked Kera's character and she was well-written. Really though, I adored Vig and his sister Kat. They were my favorite characters in the story. Jace was interesting too. 

The world building that the author wrote was extremely compelling, creative and genuinely fun to read. The characters were quirky, the Norse mythology was interesting and the romance was sweet. 

This is only the first book in her new series and now I'm stuck wondering what is going to happen next. I really hope it is more Kera and Vig, because there is so much more to be told in their story.

Overall, this was a wonderful work of urban fantasy/paranormal romance. This is one you should pick up and enjoy. I highly recommend The Unleashing and look forward to reading more by this author. This book gets five glittery stars for being exactly what I was looking for in a book when I started reading it.
