ARC Review: Viking Warrior Rebel by Asa Maria Bradley

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

I couldn’t get enough of these Vikings from book 1, so I was eagerly awaiting Astrid’s book. Can’t go wrong with an ass-kicking Valkyrie warrior belonging to the Goddess Freya. Her sarcasm and wit kept me entertained and grinning the whole time. I absolutely loved her. Viking Warrior Rebel by Asa Maria Bradley is the perfect mix of the paranormal and sexy. Read the rest of my review below.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

She can't let him discover...
Immortal Vikings are among us

Astrid Irisdotter is a Valkyrie-a fierce warrior fighting to protect humanity from the evil god Loki and his brutal minions. She's on an urgent mission for her queen when everything goes hideously sideways. Undercover agent Luke Holden arrives on the scene just in time to save her life-and put his own on the line.

Luke may have saved her, but that doesn't mean Astrid can trust him. Tempers flare as they hide secret upon secret from each other, but Astrid's inner warrior knows what it wants...and it will not take "no" for an answer.

ARC Romance smart and funny

She’s a rebel…

Astrid is a rebel warrior. She has to be, it says so in the title! But what is she rebelling against? If you read the first book you know all about the själsfrände bond. The Viking equivalent of soulmates. The only rub is that if these immortal Vikings do not find their soulmates they are forever in battle fever and are forced back into Valhalla for an internal sleep. We don’t want that happening to Astrid, but her stubborn nature refuses to accept her soulmate when she finds him. As usual with any conflict in a romance, trust is an issue.

Luke Holden, I presume?

Yes, he is the reason for all that mentioned above. An equally stubborn, secretive, SEXY alpha man. He knows he has an attraction to Astrid, an unusual one. Just like Naya before him, he was also genetically modified in a lab. So his hangups revolve around that. It seems to me, that the superhuman are the  only ones that can mate with the Vikings. We’ll see how that progresses in the rest of the series.

Creepy wolverines…

Yuck. They sound gross looking and are evil to boot! Also genetically modified they still are part of the evil that the Vikings must clean up. The plot is carried over from the previous book and Loki (half God) is still believed to be responsible. We, the reader, will not find out in this book. So, I do recommend reading book 1 first. It’s a progressing storyline.

Top 5 curses/oaths in the name of Freya

5. Freya’s fury
4. Freya’s mercy
3. Freya’s wagon
2. Freya’s cats
And my personal favorite…
1. Freya’s crazy wagon-pulling cats


Overall, stellar book for the series. Of course my eagerness for the next in the series has come back, because I really want to know what happens. Not really a cliffhanger, since Luke and Astrid’s story sums up, but the threat is still there and unresolved.

Turn on the light!

OMG!! I love those curses!! Would you believe I still say some curses from a series I read 8 years ago?? It totally slips out in public and people are like, “What????”.

Great review!
