Title The Weight of the Soul
Author Elizabeth Tammi
Description from Amazon
When Lena’s younger sister Fressa is found dead, their whole Viking clan mourns—but it is Lena alone who never recovers. Fressa is the sister that should’ve lived, and Lena cannot rest until she knows exactly what killed Fressa and why—and how to bring her back. She strikes a dark deal with Hela, the Norse goddess of death, and begins a new double life to save her sister.
But as Lena gets closer to bringing Fressa back, she dredges up dangerous discoveries about her own family and finds herself in the middle of a devastating plan to spur Ragnarök –a deadly chain of events leading to total world destruction.
Still, with her sister’s life in the balance, Lena is willing to risk it all. She’s even willing to kill. How far will she go before the darkness consumes her?
Notes About the Description
Besides books set in Asia or Asian-inspired fictional lands, I am on a huge Viking kick this year. I can’t get enough and when I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I am interested to see how Norse mythology plays a role as the other books I have read this year have not directly featured it.
This is a NetGalley ARC so I want to finish it pretty quickly. I started the first chapter but got distracted by some other books before I could really dive in. I want to finish a few other reviews before I read this one but I should have a review coming soon.
