Published by: Vestal Valley Press

Genres: Urban Fantasy, Romance
Long ago, Loki the Trickster tried to steal the golden apples of immortality. But why? And what did he plan to do with them?
Now, Loki’s mortal wife Caroline has just given birth to their first child. The sleep-deprived parents struggle to enjoy their first night out in months, but an old song gives rise to older memories, and Caroline finally hears the dark and heartbreaking story of why Loki attempted to steal Iðunn’s magical apples.
And what he lost in the attempt.
Do you want to read another Loki book she says? How quickly can I respond with a yes, without it being unseemly, I think.
Ms Macleod has introduced me to a version of the Gods which I am quite happy to go back to again and again – particularly where Loki is involved.
Forget the popularised version of Loki. I’m happy to read about the misunderstood trickster whose love for his mortal wife runs deep – and whose history (as told by Ms McLeod) is full of sexy time, love and sadness.
Don’t come to this story with pre-conceived expectations. Keep an open mind. Let your imagination romp. This one will put you through the ringer a bit – I loved it nevertheless.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Born and raised in Colorado, Samantha MacLeod has lived in every time zone in the US, and London. She has a bachelor’s degree from Colby College and an M.A. from the University of Chicago; yes, the U. of C. really is where fun comes to die.
Samantha lives with her husband and two small children in the woods of southern Maine. When she’s not shoveling snow or writing steamy sex scenes, Samantha can be found teaching college composition and philosophy to undergraduates who have no idea she leads a double life as an erotica author.
