Review: Valkyrie Slumbering by L. Vanhorn

Title: Valkyrie Slumbering
Author: L. Vanhorn
Genre: Erotic Fantasy
Source: Author Request
Length: ebook 121 pages
Reviewer: Cerridwen

After the murder of her father, Kyra's heart is consumed by the need for revenge. The hunt is all that matters. But a chance crossing of paths with the alluring and mysterious Grim threatens to derail her focus and her quest. Something about him draws her in, melts her walls, and speeds her heart. Like her, he is half Alfhiem, but it's more than that. He's funny, considerate, and treats her as an equal even in battle, something most of the Vikings of her native homeland would never do.

Steamy nights is one thing, but Kyra can't allow her heart to become wrapped up with anyone, not until she finds and kills the man who murdered her father. Traveling across the countryside with Grim, though, challenges her resolve in more ways than she thought possible. She still hungers for the hunt but that hunger begins to dim in comparison to the one that grows inside her for Grim.

Creatures that could only be from the legendary land of Midgard interrupt their hunt again and again, creatures that shouldn't exist in this realm. Soon it becomes unclear whether or not Kyra and Grim are the hunters, or the hunted. But who would hunt them, and why?

Valkyrie Slumbering is rich in Norse lore.  If you would like to learn more about the stories that the Vikings grew up on this is your kind of read.  I very much enjoyed this novella. I used my Kindle quite a bit to check on the creatures that she had brought into the story. She stayed true to the legends and lore.
You connect with the characters since Vanhorn gives you just enough to introduce them and the situation that they are walking into together. Seems that she may be building up for a longer book to go with this series? One can only hope.
And just how did those creatures of snow and ice keep warm? Vanhorn will show you that as well. The sex was HOT.  ~ smile~
  So a short review for a short book but I suggest that you check this one out for sure.
