An epic saga of love, fate and betrayal.

Victoria has chosen career over love, but starts to question this decision when she finds herself working at a remote weather research station on a tiny island off the coast of Norway.

In this world of midnight sunshine, the Old Gods still watch the affairs of humanity - one of them has become fixated on Victoria, certain that she is the reincarnation of a woman he fell in love with over a thousand years before. It was a love affair which threatened the very existence of Asgard.

Dangerous love and desire are soon running out of control, as the spectacularly supernatural obliterates Victoria's refuge in scientific rationalism. Download and start listening now!

    " No words could describe how much I love this book. Though occasionally fraught with sappy dialogue, the depth of the world and characters makes up for it. Amalgamations of real life and fantasy are seldom pulled off well, but Wilkins manages to create a believable co-existence between our world ("Midgard") and the realm of the Norse gods ("Asgard") through a careful selection of point-of-views. "

    " I liked the main character Victoria, but the story line dragged on too long. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicky | 1/23/2014

    " What a beautifully told love story. The tale goes from the past to the future and back, where two characters are destined to be together no matter how many thousands of years have past. I can't say much about the plot but I was truly mesmerised by this story. I'm not usually a lover of love stories but Kim has such an original way of telling her fantasy stories you can't help but be swept away. After this book I read every one of Kims books!! I'm totally addicted to her now :). "

    " Couldn't get past the first few pages of the book. It was really lame. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Laverick | 1/13/2014

    " Not as good as Autumn Castle but still kept me gripped from start to finish. I even had a nightmare about it, so it was very effective haha It certainly reinforced my belief that Kim Wilkins is a brilliant writer. "

    " Great book for people who enjoy mythology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carly | 12/16/2013

    " I loved this book. I'd like to find something insightful to say about it, but it simply was a great bloody read. I bought it in the Vegas airport some years ago, on a layover. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Freya Roberts | 12/11/2013

    " I picked it up because of the Norse mythology - I re-read it because it's a beautiful love story set between worlds, with enough fantasy and excitement to make it palatable to anyone, even cynics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lowenna | 12/8/2013

    " I enjoyed this story and liked the mixture of the Ancient Norse mixed in with the present day. But thought the ending wasn't so good. Victoria's fate and where she ended up didnt make any sense to the rest of the book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Olds | 11/26/2013

    " I admit I picked up this book purely for entertainment and the winter theme. But I was engrossed right away. The author delves into Norse mythology, reincarnation, love and loss and redemption. Although dubbed a romance, it is more aptly called a fantasy-sci fi. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 10/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed The Autumn Castle and this book was even better. I loved all of the Norse mythology, but even more so the characters and the story line were compelling and made me want to keep reading and really care about what happened to all of the characters. This is a really good book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susinok | 8/19/2013

    " This book is a gorgeous blending of myth and contemporary. I loved the journey through Hel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zena | 4/19/2013

    " My sister asked me to read this book and I wasn't too keen but I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed the book. A very good book. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roseanne | 10/29/2012

    " Absolutely love the blending of the modern with dark Norse mythology and ultimate true love. It's so refreshing to read about characters that are deeply flawed but wonderfully quirky and truly striving for not better per say, but some ultimate goal that fulfills them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 9/14/2012

    " wasn't trilled with the ending but enjoyed the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 6/24/2012

    " This is a really good story, you have to believe in the Norse Gods a little bit, but it's a love story that mixes today's world with the world of the Norse Gods. It sounds lame but it is not at all. I recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 blackteiwaz | 1/1/2012

    " Very well written and altogether an entertaining read. The ending was not to my liking, but I can understand why the author chose to finish the story the way she did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Davina | 7/11/2011

    " This book had a good storyline unfortunately it had some really slow bits which made it easy to put down and not so easy to pick back up. The last hundred pages were good. I didn't really love the main characters which made it hard aswell but some of the miner characters were good. "

    " I really loved this book. Kim is so good at creating a world and making it real. I cried. I laughed. I vouched for my favorite characters. This book left me feeling good.

    This is my second time I've read it. "

    " Of the books I've read so far this year, this is one of my favorites. The characters were amazing, the story was so intriguing I didn't want to put it down, and the writing was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends who enjoy fantasy novels. "
