THE UNYIELDING is a fun romp through both the Norse underworld and the modern world, with a good dose of mischief and sexy romance. The characters are fun, the monsters are properly horrific and the stakes are high enough to matter. Although Ragnarok is no laughing matter, THE UNYIELDING makes it fun.

Shelley Laurenston (who also writes the Dragon Kin series as AG Aiken) has a particular way with heroines who are not your typical kick-ass urban fantasy heroines – and I love it!
Jace is a super interesting, layered character and although her quiet behaviour confuses her sister-Crows, most of us can understand the need to get away from unnecessary chit chat and noise. Jace has a particularly dark “first life”, her life before she was chosen by Skuld to become a Crow at the moment of death. Still, she isn’t overly negative and manages to care for her new family, the rowdy, loud, violent women of the Crows.
BITE ME is my favorite kind of paranormal romance. Its clever and a little bit wacky with fun characters, an exciting story and has an entertaining romantic journey. I found myself re-reading certain parts just because of their sheer awesomeness or hilarity.
When I started WOLF WITH BENEFITS, based on the title and the cover, I was excepting cheesy paranormal romance. And, to be fair, though WOLF WITH BENEFITS is a bit cheesy, it’s also clever, fun, and a really enjoyable read, with some great characters and laugh out loud moments.
