Synopsis: Ever since her father was killed just over a year ago by the Arctic fighting force known as the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun, Odessa Santin has been the leader of the Siberian werewolves. The Arctics and Siberians have been at war for centuries. So when Odessa has sex with an Arctic stranger, it is the craziest thing she has ever done.
Dan Lowell is a member of the Brotherhood of the Midnight Sun. Lowell is aghast when he realizes his mystery Siberian lover is Odessa Santin, particularly as he needs to confront her because he believes she has been poisoning the Arctic environment. The physical passion they feel for each other is equalled by their sizzling animosity as they argue over the allegations.
Lowell soon discovers that Odessa is being framed, and someone is trying to reignite hostilities between the two packs. For the first time ever, the Arctics and the Siberians agree to put aside their differences and unite against a common enemy. As they work together, Lowell and Odessa begin to realize that their feelings for each other run deeper than they thought.

My review: For me a good paranormal book is easy to read, has characters I can get behind and has enough of a plot to keep my interest. I find I only really like chic-lit books when there’s the added extra of the paranormal in so I want something to keep my interest. This book delivered on that.

As soon as I read that Odessa’s day job involved designing computer games my heart sunk. I can’t think of many things more boring & I understand nothing about coding but thankfully it didn’t really form part of the story, more a way to introduce the two leads.

I’ve read quite a few paranormal books but this is the first time I’ve read one linking werewolves to Norse mythology and Fenrir, son of Loki. That really made the book stand out for me. It explained the mythology and tied it into the modern day story so well. I love Loki and the legends so this book worked for me on so many levels.

The romance angle is fun, I liked the action. It’s fast paced and a real page turner. I really liked this. I’ve got Wold Slayer on my to-read list but will definitely be looking at getting the first two books and look forward to what Jane Godman puts out in the future
