The gods walk among us. And they just might steal your soul... or your heart.
I thought I'd survived everything life could throw at me. All I wanted was to keep my distance from the criminals I work for and get my little brother out of the hell that is our mother's house.
Then I died and woke up to four stunningly hot gods telling me I'm now a valkyrie.
Sly, sharp Loki. Jovial but ferocious Thor. Dreamily compassionate Baldur. Grim and secretive Hod. They all have something to teach me. And around them, my walls start to crack.
But the gods didn't summon me just for kicks. Their king is missing, and they need me to find him. The first three valkyries they sent on the job never made it back.
More power is awakening in me than I could ever have imagined—and the gods' enemies are more devious than even they knew. It's going to take every trick in the book for me to save myself, my brother, and these divine men who're getting under my skin in the most alluring way.
I'm Aria Watson, and Valhalla ain't seen nothing yet.
Claimed by Gods is a fun, action-packed read, with plenty of potential romance in the offing. I've not read much reverse harem so far, but I loved the set-up of this book. Ari is a fascinating, strong character, and the plot kept me intrigued. Norse mythology is my favourite, and it was great to see so many familiar faces appearing and events mentioned. I would have preferred if Loki hadn't been designated a frost giant, but that's just because it goes against my reading of him in the original tales and probably won't matter much to most readers. The cliffhanger ending certainly left me hungry for more, and I definitely wish to read on in the series. If you enjoy myth-based fantasy with sexy gods and epic adventures, this is a book for you. 4.5 stars
