Wow S.T Bende has blown me away Her concept of Norse Mythology was genius I blew through the entire series in two days This was the prequel and sets you up for the plot of the first book It introduces you to the main Norse characters that are present in the series Five glittery stars Fun and fast read review follows when Goodreads not glitching Great Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard On the surface she has it all great friends, a job as Odin s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm s hottest assassin But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world comes crashing down Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga s best friend Ull is first on their list With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to decide how she ll spend her final moments of freedom Because from the moment this battle begins, Inga s happily ever after will be nothing than a memorySome things are worth fighting forTUR is an Elsker Saga novella It is approximately , words long I really enjoyed this little tale from Inga s perspective There s enough action and foreshadowing in here to keep the momentum of the novella going, and it seeds the romance between Ull and Kristia in the sweetest way That last page or two Aww Ull is a very serious and intense fellow as you would be if you were the God of Winter being drafted into a different portfolio, one you really didn t want and it was fun to see Inga trying to get him to lighten up.Inga and Gunnar are definitel I really enjoyed this little tale from Inga s perspective There s enough action and foreshadowing in here to keep the momentum of the novella going, and it seeds the romance between Ull and Kristia in the sweetest way That last page or two Aww Ull is a very serious and intense fellow as you would be if you were the God of Winter being drafted into a different portfolio, one you really didn t want and it was fun to see Inga trying to get him to lighten up.Inga and Gunnar are definitely the focus of the novella, though Inga s drive to be taken seriously as a warrior by Odin, and Gunnar s desire to, well, spend some quality time with Inga This is a sweet romance though, like the rest of the series, so it fades to black at appropriate moments Part of me regreted that, to be honest, because it was so promising One touch that I really love in this series is that the gods are given a modern makeover Even in Asgard they live in modern houses and wear modern clothes It made the sprinkling of references to theancient parts of their world stand out evenFun I felt Inga s frustration at the blokes desire to protect her, given what a kick butt warrior she is At first I thought it was old fashioned chivalry or even sexism she s weak we can t let her go to battle It was a relief to discover it wasabout politics, in Odin s case at least Gunnar on the other hand just didn t want his wife in danger I can respect that, because who wants to see their loved ones get hurt Also, if this has intrigued you, here s onething to consider Tur is a great opportunity to try a new author, because it s free It can be a risky proposition buying a book by an unknown author, but you can, ah, suck it and see Speaking of Gunnar Tur is a great prequel to the Elsker series, this one is told from the point of view of Inga I have no idea yet who Inga is and if there are any myths about her or not, but I know she lives among the gods This prequel set up some things for the first book Elsker and I am really curious how this is all going to work out The danger is introduced and this books provides a peak from the supernatural side before reading about the human girl who is going to get caught up in this all.I liked Inga as Tur is a great prequel to the Elsker series, this one is told from the point of view of Inga I have no idea yet who Inga is and if there are any myths about her or not, but I know she lives among the gods This prequel set up some things for the first book Elsker and I am really curious how this is all going to work out The danger is introduced and this books provides a peak from the supernatural side before reading about the human girl who is going to get caught up in this all.I liked Inga as a character, she was really stubborn, but I liked how she did everything she could to get what she want, no matter if it was fighting, argumenting or using her cooking skills as bribe I didn t get a good sense of who the other characters are, although the reader does learn a bit about them in this prequel, just not enough to really get who they are yet, but I am sure that we will learnabout the characters in Elsker.As with all mythology books I had some problem grasping the world building, I know almost nothing about mythology so I always feel like I am missing some information Nevertheless I did understand most of it, although I just have no knowlegde about the mythology behing it all I wish there was a bitworld building, because for me there just wasn t enough of it, but then again this is a prequel.To conclude Tur is a nice introduction to the Elsker saga, I liked the story and getting to know Inga I don t have much knowlegde about mythology so I felt like I was missing some information, but I could follow most of the story Now on to Elsker
