The Valkyrie’s Daughter

We rated this book:


Sigrid is a stable hand who dreams of becoming a valkyrie. But she was paired with a normal horse at birth, and so her dream is reduced to a faint longing. But when Vanahalla is attacked, Sigrid leaps into action to stop the enemy from stealing an ancient relic. When she holds the relic, she has a vision of herself riding the stallion Slepnir, and realizes that maybe her dream of becoming a valkyrie is within reach. Sigrid teams up with a valkyrie named Mariam in hopes of discovering her destiny, but her journey is complicated by growing feelings for Mariam. As they get closer to Helheim, Sigrid must unravel what it means to be a valkyrie. Will she fulfill her destiny?

This was an enjoyable book with Norse mythology throughout! I liked Sigrid’s character development from a brash stable hand to a leader who was confident in her decisions. I also liked the slow-burn romance between her and Mariam. It didn’t immediately jump into a love scenario, and I appreciated that the author gave their romance time to develop. I loved that the story incorporated Norse myths while still holding onto its originality. Loved it!
