The plot churns mightily without any particular conviction, and amid the hustle and bustle, there are lots of battles with magic and swords. It all has an air of being phoned in.

Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author SUSAN KRINARD launches her first urban fantasy series with MIST.
Mist lives a normal life. She has a normal job, a normal boyfriend, and a normal apartment in San Francisco. She never thinks about her past if she can help it.

She survived. That's the end of it.

But then a snowy winter descends upon San Francisco. In June. And 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.

Mist's normal world is falling apart. But thankfully, Mist isn't quite so normal herself. She's a Valkyrie, and she's going to need all her skill to thwart Loki's schemes and save modern Earth from the ravages of a battle of the gods.

Dear Author

Good
Reviewed by Marthine on Jul 21 2014

Mist is an incredible ride through the streets of San Francisco. I was yanked into the action and conflict right away...The entire book takes place within a week, at most, and Ms. Krinard catapults the reader along breathlessly from conflict to conflict. Her plotting is expert and does not feel contrived.
