Wishlist Wednesday #1

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper at

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

The Count is VERY grumpy when he adds books to his wishlist because he wants them NOW! So which book is he so keen to get a hold of this week? It is Mist by Susan Krinard. I love the legends of the Norse Gods and I love urban fantasy so this seems like the ideal combination for me. I've been twitching to buy this for AGES but I'm on a budget!!!

Centuries ago, all was lost in the Last Battle when the Norse gods and goddesses went to war. The elves, the giants, and the gods and goddesses themselves were all destroyed, leaving the Valkyrie Mist one of the only survivors.

Or so she thought.

When a snowy winter descends upon modern-day San Francisco in June, Mist’s quiet existence starts to feel all too familiar. In quick succession, Mist is attacked by a frost giant in a public park and runs into an elf disguised as a homeless person on the streets…and then the man Mist believed was her mortal boyfriend reveals himself to be the trickster god, Loki, alive and well after all these years.

Loki has big plans for the modern world, and he’s been hanging around Mist for access to a staff that once belonged to the great god Odin. Mist is certain of one thing: Loki must be stopped if there is to be any hope for Earth. But the fight is even bigger than she knows….

Because Loki wasn’t the only god to survive.

  9. This book sounds awesome! I love Norse myths. I'll have to wait for the paperback too.

    1. There just aren't enough Norse mythology books out there-not that I've heard of anyway. I got right into that after watching Stargate SG1!

  10. I am planning to read this too. Great pick! Hope that we both enjoy it.
