When the fate of the world is at stake
Hello everyone! To celebrate the release of Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking on January 2, 2018, I will be participating in a several day long blog tour. I hope you enjoy and of course, don't forget to check out some of the other blogs on this tour! Now lets begin!
Game of Thrones meets Blade Runner in this commanding new YA fantasy inspired by Norse Mythology from New York Times bestselling author Amanda Hocking.
As one of Odin's Valkyries, Malin's greatest responsibility is to slay immortals and return them to the underworld. But when she unearths a secret that could unravel the balance of all she knows, Malin along with her best friend and her ex-girlfriend must decide where their loyalties lie. And if helping the blue-eyed boy Asher enact his revenge is worth the risk—to the world and her heart.
Amanda Hocking is the author of over twenty young adult novels, including the New York Times bestselling Trylle Trilogy and Kanin Chronicles. Her love of pop culture and all things paranormal influence her writing. She spends her time in Minnesota, taking care of her menagerie of pets and working on her next book.

In the new Norse-mythology inspired novel by author Amanda Hocking; Malin, one of the Valkyries of Odin, is tasked with returning immortals to the underworld. But when a strange man knocks on her door bearing a secret that could change her world, Malin must team up with him, her best friend, and her ex-girlfriend to get revenge and save the world.
I loved the world that the author created in this book. Dark and atmospheric, I really felt immersed as I read it. The author uses her knowledge of Norse mythology to the maximum as she beautifully blends the myths with our world, resulting in unique characters, beautiful settings and cool technologies. As I went through Malin’s story, I could feel the thick grunginess in the air as she describes the city-states, over population and pollution that riddle the world.
Along with having a great world to set her tale, she also has created characters to fill it with. Each with their own unique personas and back stories, they all feel real and fleshed out throughout the novel. Malin’s mother for example is far from the regular loving mother that most readers see in YA. She is badass yet socially strange as she lacks the ability to say simple words such as ‘I love you’. I like how unlike the usual one-dimensional mothers that are present in YA, she felt well developed and real. Another thing that I enjoyed were the LGBT characters that frequented the novel. The main character, Malin, for example is one of these characters. I really appreciated that the author wrote her as an LGBT character because LGBT main characters in fantasy novels are so rare that something like this is refreshing to see. The author did not at all write Malin as an LGBT character just to be able to cross it off her list, but to make it a genuine aspect of her personality that flows well with the rest of the book.
And of course, no book is complete without a good plot which this book had plenty of. I loved all the twists and turns that the author wrote throughout the book. What I expected to go one way proved me wrong as the author sent me on a thrill ride littered with little fun tidbits to keep me entertained.
I would recommend this book for mythological adaptation lovers looking for a refreshing take on of tales. Some younger readers might not enjoy because of mature scenes and languages, violence, and drugs. If you are hoping to get immersed into an entertaining word, this book is for you.
