It’s hard to be good when the other side is oh, so bad.

The Valkyrie, Book 2

Linnea isn’t exactly happy with her life as one of Odin’s handmaidens, but she has always done what is expected of her. Yet all the while she knows the truth—the Valkyries are stretched thinner every day. And now Evil has stopped playing by the rules and started recruiting minions from the supernatural gene pool.

Her newest assignment: counter the vampires’ plan by seeking out brave male souls with supernatural powers to join Valhalla’s cause. Leaping through waterfalls of time and into legendary battles has never bothered her before, but even with her magic, it’s tough to beat the bloodsuckers to the best warriors before they can be turned.

She never expected her quest to bring her face to face with love, in the form of Kerr Laochailan. Their innocent temptation flares into desire, so hot and fast it attracts the wrong kind of attention. In a cruel joke of fate, Kerr is torn from her. Yet her mission goes on. And Fate isn’t through playing tricks on the lovers yet, nor is it done introducing lovers to her bed…

Warning: This book contains a butt-kicking female, torn between her love of a stubborn Scottish vampire and a super-sexy Italian blood sucker. Oh, and a lot of fight scenes.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Valhalla is a myth that is old as time. It has been told and retold for centuries. Mandy M. Roth has given us another rendition of this mystical tale. It’s very passionate with a sad side that will make your heart cry. Linnea goes through hell; the question is will she make it back? Karr, Gregorios, or Lucha, which is destined to be by Linnea’s side? I love Ms. Roth’s use for a waterfall in the story. Never again will I look at a waterfall the same. From now on every time I see one I’ll wonder, could it be possible. When an author can leave a reader with that kind of feeling she can say she’s done her job. Ms. Roth’s interpretation of a Valkyrie’s life is a hot, sizzling love story that will have you coming back for more. Be sure to get Valhalla The Valkyrie Beginnings by Mandy M. Roth. And be careful you don’t go over the waterfalls. You never know where you may land. Enjoy!" —Reviewed by: Diane Fallen Angel Reviews

"VALHALLA: The Valkyrie Beginnings is a dark paranormal story with a little romance and a lot of suspense. It chronicles Linnea's journey from Valkyrie to vampire, and the men she loves along the way. Gregory, Lucha, and Kerr all have great strengths and gifts beyond anything imaginable, but they also have one weakness — their love for Linnea. The story flows smoothly, following Linnea's many sexual encounters, her battles, and her struggles to remember who and what she once was. Linnea is the best at her job of capturing souls, and those in Valhalla know it. Once she's turned and her memories are gone, Linnea teaches the newly turned vampires how to live and survive, and she feeds off the blood of evil doers. She might not have her memories, but instilled deep inside her is the need to protect the innocent.

Ms. Roth writes a thriller that readers of dark romance will find enjoyable. But if you're looking for a romance and a happily-ever-after, then VALHALLA: The Valkyrie Beginnings may not be to your liking."—Romance Reviews Today

"Ms. Roth has written an interesting beginning to a series. Linnea’s character is a woman bucking against the old guard of the elders. She doesn’t like the fact that she is dragging men away from their time and their battles back to Valhalla. Her character is strong and sensitive. At times I wanted to cry with her as she encountered problems in her travels. The many men she develops an interest in during her time in the human world are fascinating. Kerr and Beau are the most interesting, since their characters are in the book longer. Kerr is a man of great passion and you feel the joy he has when he finds himself in Valerie’s arms. Beau is tempted and wants the forbidden fruit that Linnea offers. The sex scenes in this story are powerful. I found that there was so much happening in this first installment that it was overwhelming. It will be interesting to see how Ms. Roth handles the next installment in this series." —Just Erotic Romance Reviews
