As a nearly immortal Valkyrie, Mist is the guardian of the greatest of the Norse god’s Treasures—Odin’s spear Gungnir. But Mist believes all the gods are dead, and she’s slowly settling into a normal life in San Francisco. Just when Mist is ready to give up the duty the All-father laid on her, she meets a mysterious woman, Bella Stratus, and a man who helps her save Bella’s life: Eric Larsson, the perfect embodiment of a Viking warrior. He’s charming, good-natured, and nearly her equal in strength; and for the first time in centuries Mist has found someone she might be able to love… and trust.
But even as Mist remembers the past she left behind and contemplates a new future with Eric, Bella warns her that she can’t fight her fate. No matter what happens, no matter how hard she tries, she’ll never be able to escape the destiny that awaits her…
Praise for MIST:
“It’s a fast paced, gripping thriller, with a few interesting twists and turns and some excellent divine conspiracy.” — Booklist
“A kick-ass Valkyrie with baggage teams up with a brooding elf to battle Loki and a band of Jotunar (frost giants) … Krinard’s background … lends her an ability to write well-defined, multi-dimensional characters who help this story stand out in a crowded field.” — Publishers Weekly
“This is really good! A brilliant concept—Norse fantasy in a modern setting. Highly recommended!” — C.J. Cherryh, SF writer
4 Stars! “The talented Krinard draws from the world of Norse mythology as she introduces a dark new urban fantasy series featuring a disillusioned Valkyrie. Krinard’s new heroine is guilt-ridden and bitter, but she has adapted to the modern world. There is plenty of deceit, drama and action in this launch book!” — RT Book Reviews
Meet the Nightsiders
4.5 STARS! “A complicated and fascinating mythology makes Daysider a fun read. Its fast-paced excitement will keep readers’ attention from beginning to end.” — RT Book Reviews
welcome to a world of vampires, dhampires and humans, a world following a devastating war between the Opiri—an ancient vampire race risen from centuries-long sleep during the cataclysmic event known as the Awakening—and humans fighting for survival.
Humans and Opiri have struck an uneasy peace and divided the earth into vampire Citadels and human Enclaves. Between and around them lies the Zone, a no-man’s-land where only very special agents operate—the half human, half Opir race called dhampires and the Daysiders, mutant vampires who can walk in the daylight.
As the threat of a new war looms, dhampir Alexia Fox and Daysider operative Damon have been chosen to work together in maintaining the peace. Only their courage and developing love for each other give them any hope of sparing the world another terrible war…one that may result in the destruction of civilization.
