Title: The Last Valkyrie
Author: Karina Espinosa
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy
Publication Date: August 3rd, 2018
Blurb: Raven Romero is a washed up Valkyrie who is unable to return to Valhalla, spending her days in a haze of sex, drugs, and alcohol.
When she is wrongfully accused of murder, Raven has two options: run or clear her name. With a laundry list of enemies, she has no idea who could be framing her. One thing is for sure: they know what she is and they'll stop at nothing until she’s behind bars or dead.
With no choice but to delve into the supernatural underground she tried so hard to avoid, Raven seeks aid and learns what it means to be human.
The world believes her kind no longer exists, but Raven Romero is The Last Valkyrie.
This was a really good read. It came to me at a time when I was in a reading funk and couldn't find something interesting. Upon reading the synopsis, I thought that this would be a fresh take on Norse mythology and I am glad I took a chance on The Last Valkyrie. Raven is a badass with a drug problem. I'm not sure why exactly she does them but I'm hoping it becomes clear in the next installment. Valkyries are trained to not feel, but yet when it comes to a certain banshee, she cares.
Full of excitement, mystery, sex, drugs, and myth, The Last Valkyrie will leave you wanting more and wanting revenge on a Norse God and a shifter. Definitely a fun read but not recommended for young ones or teens in my opinion.
