" Started out very interesting but as the story went on it just didnt hold my interest. Could have been better as a one or two book series. " said.

" This is truly the best book I have ever read. I love the plot and how it ends. I can not type enough things to express how good this book is. I just have one word for it : Amazing! " said.

"great conclusion to the trilogy!

One of the things that truly had me liking this book out of all three of them was that O'Hearn did not make Loki the Trickster into Loki the Villain. She shows that Loki cares for his family--and Freya is in a way his family--and will fight to defend his home and family from anyone who attacks them. Loki is the catalyst to help Freya begin her journey to save the realms and that to me is very fitting. I loved the journey to Vanaheim and everything which followed.

Loki's battle with the Frost Giants was epic and so was Freya's with Dyran. The resolution was well done and something I could live with especially because even those who died were reborn in a sense. I will say that Archie continually harping on Loki made me want to punch him out, but maybe that was the point.

Would like to see a sequel soon.

"WOW! The first book was exciting. The second book was thrilling. Now this final and third book should come with a warning that there will be jaw-drops, heart break, stomach punches and the occasional chuckle. Sooo much happens and it truly is an epic finale that befits and honours all the adventures Freya had before the impeding danger of Ragnarok.
I really enjoyed following the adventures of not just Freya but also so many other characters.
Kate has become a master of working with Norse Mythology in all aspects and characters. She has kept the traditional essence but given it new energy and created a superb set of stories that are enjoyable for all ages from the first line to the last.
I will honestly miss this norse fantasy world and its fantastic characters.

"Valkyrie: War of the Realms by Kate O'Hearn is the third book in this fantasy trilogy. Have you ever wondered what life would be like in a diverse world? All nine realms has had one question stuck in their minds for days now: How will Ragnarok possibly be kept from happening? Ragnarok-the war of all the nine realms including Earth-has been on the verge of arriving to Asgard, and slowly making its way to all the other realms. Freya, a well trained reaper of souls who claims Asgard as her homeland, has the weight of Ragnarok on her shoulders. Forced to leave Asgard and find shelter elsewhere, the young Valkyrie has now decided to gather her friend Archie-a reaped human soldier- to escape and make a plan to stop Ragnarok. However, she will also have to travel with her brother, Kai, and Loki, the trickster god. With unfortunate events now holding her back, her trust for Loki is slowly decreasing. With new allies willing to help her fight for the safety of the realms, Freya now discovers the truth of how Ragnarok must be stopped, and who is in her way to stop it. Will Freya be able to keep her loved ones safe and be worthy enough to stop whoever is behind Ragnarok? I rate this book a 10 out of 10 for the attention-capturing affairs that never come to a stop in this book, and the unexpected turns this book will take.
If you like mythology and strong characters, you will like Valkyrie: War if the Realms by Kate O'Hearn.

"I had been wanting to read this book for seemingly ages. I loved the first two, and this one did not disappoint! I was worried I'd be unsatisfied with the ending, but it was great, just like the ending to the Pegasus series. (I personally prefer the Valkyrie series to Pegasus, but both are favorite fantasy series in my mind.)

Without giving away a ton of spoilers, I'll just say you'll alternately be thinking OH NO and AWESOME and AHHHHHHHH etc throughout the book. There is a revelation regarding Freya and her family that I honestly pretty much saw coming, but I was happy that my guess was correct. I also very much like that throughout the Valkyrie trilogy, Archie and Freya remain just best friends, nothing more. We see this clearly when they end up meeting Skye and Quinn.

Dirian is awful, as expected, and his fate is very satisfying. Let's just say he got his just dues thanks to Freya and Skuld.
I also like that Freya sharing goddess Freyja's name is explained. That had been minorly bugging me since book one (why did Freya, who's a valkyrie, have that name when there was a Norse goddess already of the same name?), so having an explanation that goes along with some plot points I had guessed made me happy.

I like how all of the humans on Midgard are suspicious but come to team up with Freya and her fellow Asgardians eventually. It comes across believable in my opinion, and I like that a lot.

I will also say that I like that Loki is a trickster and pretty much an annoying turd a lot of the time, but not...totally villainous/evil. He's just a mischief maker and likes causing trouble. Also, the banter between him and Archie is funny.

I 100% recommend this book to anyone looking for a good fantasy read. 5 out of 5 stars from me. I will say, do read the first two books in the Valkyrie series first, both because of spoilers and because it won't make as much sense. Kate O'Hearn writes great mythology-based fantasy in my opinion. Her Valkyrie and Pegasus series are two of my favorites.

" This was a amazing close of to the series. It had a satisfying and heart warming ending. This book sits on my favourite shelf shelf. One of favourites definitely worth the money " said.
