    A Test of Time

    I picked up Giants of the Frost when it was first released, and it remains one of my favorite books four years later. I have read this book three times and with each reading I am captivated with the characters and story just as if I was reading it for the first time. Since Giants of the Frost, Kim Wilkins has been one of my "go to" authors--I just wish she had more out! If you love mythology, fantasy, or just a good love story, this is a great book for you.

    A Fantastic Love Story

    Will Vidar have the chance to ever see his love again? The one that had saved his soul? The one he had seen so serenely gazing into a pool of water that pulled at his bloodstained-heart's strings? So fragile and ethereal is she despite of her frail humanity. When Vidar's father, Odin, god of war, finds out by slip of tongue, that his prized son 'who is destined by the fates to save him from the end of the world' has fallen in love with a mortal and plans to never return, he is sent into an infuriated rage and slays her without mercy. Vadir is thrown into a raging fury, but in honor of what is good and pure, a virtue that had awakened him the day he met Halla, he rescinds his birthright of power, strength and blood lust. Follow Vadir, a valiant warrior of love, as he fights fiercely for the one he loves over a span of a thousand years, a quest to find what he had so dearly loved who may have returned but in modern times. This story is very well researched by Kim Wilkins and very dynamic and will keep your fingers turning the pages. Other characters will help supplement the storyline, making it fuller and complete. I LOVE this story and wished that Kim had created a sequel to this enchanting love story!

    beautiful romantic fantasy

    Victoria Scott travels to the island of Othinsey, two hundred nautical miles off the Norwegian Coast as a meteorologist at Kirkja station. This job will help her in getting her doctorate in meteorology but the drawback is that many of her fellow workers believe this island is haunted as they hear voices in the woods at night. One evening she meets Vanir whom Victoria feels as if she has known all her life and beyond. --- She is right because they have loved once before when she was Halla who lived on Othinsey circa 1104 with her missionary uncle and his family. Odin didn¿t want Christ worshippers on his island so he sent his son Vanir to kill them but he fell in love and was unable to do it. He was prepared to leave Asgard and stay with Halla but Odin destroyed that dream. Now Halla has returned as Victoria and is once again in danger from Odin who fears that his son won¿t be there to save him on the day of Rangorak. Vanir vows to save her this time and find a way to be together but fate is immutable and some things are not meant to be unless someone can get the Fates to change their minds. --- Kim Wilkins has written one of best and most beautiful romantic fantasies in years. The hero is prepared to die for his love or give up his mortality while Victoria fights the supernatural creatures on the island who destroy to gain Odin¿s favor. Her love for Vanir is so beautiful it will bring tears to the readers¿ eyes because she doesn¿t seem like she will get the happily ever after they both desperately deserve. --- Harriet Klausner
