Ragnarok Unwound

I loved this book! It pulled me in from the beginning and wouldn’t let me go!
Ives meets her destiny in a bar (I’m not talking true love!). As the Fate Cipher, Ives has tried to brush off her power and ignore it; she doesn’t need or want the responsibility. 41146916But when Ragnorak (and the end of the world as we know it) becomes imminent, she has no choice. Accepting her blood given gift, Ives sees the whole world in a different way and makes friends she would never have imagined.
The book has dashes of Christopher Moore and a sprinkle of Rick Riodiran while being completely unique, fun, and enchanting. Kristin Jacques gives a spin on the traditional Norse lore while weaving in other religions and pantheons that all work together. She pulls off a twist that respects the traditions of the past while creating her own spin.
I really love how there was no romance. Ives has too much going on learning her history and taking ahold of her future without adding a romantic over layer. When the world is ending, there isn’t time for a forced coupling and that aspect often pulls down action movies and other adventure stories.
The characters are charming (Hel is the best), the writing funny and action exciting. I would love to read more tales of the Fate cipher.
I received an ARC from the publisher; all opinions are my own.
