Overview

The climactic conclusion of a supernatural romantic trilogy starring a savvy, sharp-tongued heroine who taps into ancient Norse secrets.

After surviving her (shall we say) intense adventure in Iceland, Katla is psyched to be back for a blissfully uneventful senior year of homecoming and fashion explorations. But her hopes of dodging unfinished business are dashed by the arrival of two Icelandic exchange students: Marik, an oddly alluring merman-in-disguise, and Jinky, a tough gypsy girl. It seems Katla not only enraged the Snow Queen by rescuing her boyfriend, Jack, she also was tricked into promising her frail baby sister to the water queen — and Marik has come to collect. What’s worse, Katla doesn’t dare confide in anyone lest she endanger them, so even her soul mate, Jack, is growing suspicious. And now Katla’s stork dreams, her guide for matching babies with mothers, have become strange and menacing as well. Hold on for a thrilling finale as the heroine of Stork and Frost calls on her wits (and her wit) to protect those she loves and face a final mythic disaster.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The final book in an unforgettable trilogy, this story delivers the same level of clever word play, sneaky smart plot twists, and sweet soul-mate moments readers have come to count on... Using Norse mythology as the framework and strong relationships with family and friends as the motivating force, there is plenty of substance holding this very stylish series together. The ending of the book, as the end of the series, is as satisfying and hope-filled as any reader could ever wish.
—VOYA

Delsol makes it all work with Kat’s spunky personality, plenty of dry, hip wisecracks, friendships, rivalries, a little romance and lots of suspense. Readers will care about each character with their distinct personalities, often quirky but acceptable as real humans.... The whole trilogy stands out for originality and great entertainment.
—Kirkus Reviews

VOYA - Stacey Hayman
Katla is starting her senior year at Norse Falls High School, and she is hoping to keep life simple. It only takes a moment on the school's front steps before Kat is agreeing to be a welcome guide for one of the new students, and her hope for simplicity begins to fade. When Kat sees that Marik, a merman currently in corporeal form, and Jinky, a shaman in training, are the new kids, that is when she knows the bar has just been raised on what makes an unforgettable senior year. Keeping track of who has heard which half-truth is tough enough; add growing Stork powers, her baby sister's struggle to survive, and romantic drama for all, and the sum total might be too much for Kat to handle. If she cannot, it could mean the end of the world as we know it. The final book in an unforgettable trilogy, this story delivers the same level of clever word play, sneaky smart plot twists, and sweet soul-mate moments readers have come to count on. Kat's willingness to acknowledge her bad habit of leaping before looking and her never-say-die approach to the consequences of those leaps make her a favorite heroine. Using Norse mythology as the framework and strong relationships with family and friends as the motivating force, there is plenty of substance holding this very stylish series together. The ending of the book, as the end of the series, is as satisfying and hope-filled as any reader could ever wish. Reviewer: Stacey Hayman
Kirkus Reviews
The Stork trilogy ends in a whirlwind of Norse mythology as Katla tries to escape the deal she made in volume two. Frost (2011) saw Kat battling the Snow Queen to save her boyfriend, Jack, who has paranormal powers as Jack Frost. Kat has her stork powers, but she runs afoul of the other storks when she takes things into her own hands. Meanwhile, two characters she met in Iceland, Jinky, the rough-cut shaman-in-training, and charismatic Marik, actually a selkie in disguise as a human, show up as new students in her high school. Marik reminds her that she promised her newborn sister Leira to the court of the Norse gods as payment for the opportunity to rescue Jack. Now Kat has to find a way to save Leira without angering two Norse goddesses so much that they'll bring the entire world to an end. Yes, it sounds too over-the-top, but Delsol makes it all work with Kat's spunky personality, plenty of dry, hip wisecracks ("Jinky shook her head, demonstrating the possible origins of the headbangers brand of dance style"), friendships, rivalries, a little romance and lots of suspense. Readers will care about each character with their distinct personalities, often quirky but acceptable as real humans. The prose trips along, always entertaining, until the story just zooms, even though this plot becomes a bit complex. Best read with the previous two books, the series ends with an unforeseen but rather satisfying surprise. Although Katla's story may be over, readers will certainly look for more from this talented writer. The whole trilogy stands out for originality and great entertainment. (Paranormal adventure. 12 & up)
