Dagger Heart by Porter Davis

Book 1 of The Odin Blood Series

Norway, 704 A.D.

The valiant King Ulfur defeated the evil that swept the seaside village of Nornör into despair; Morgan, the demon witch, has been dead for nearly twenty years. The truce between King Úlfur and the Queen of the Fae has remained intact since the day that Morgan’s dark curses vanished. It seemed that peace had finally come to the wounded souls of the village.

But this peace is shaken when three curses that Morgan promised with her dying breath are placed upon the Norwegian village: who among them has cast the spell?

Seventeen-year-old Erica finds herself trapped in the middle of a witch’s deadly revenge scheme with no way out but to fight for survival. On top of trying to end the curses devouring her village like a savage beast she finds herself at the center of attention when it comes to Viking King Úlfur’s three sons: Kriger, Paul, and Finn.

Three of them will fight alongside her.
Two of them want to marry her.
One of them could be the son of King Úlfur… and Morgan.

About page 380 this story started to ramble. It was about witches, killer trolls and revenge. It has a convoluted plot with twists and turns tangling into a knot which suddenly unravels and makes sense. I wish it had had a better, happier ending. But perhaps there will be a sequal with a better resolution. This was so much better then the last fantasy book I read.

500 page free book. The story was good, but the editing errors at times were distracting. Erica is a good strong character. Would recommend if free. Some further editing would help BrynnS

I can honestly say this has to be one of my favorite stories! it reminded me a little of the hunger games even though the story line was a lot different. The main character Erica reminded so much of Katniss and even the love triangle that is going down follows the hunger games even though this one is between brothers. The only thing is, if you are going to read it, it is easier to read it on paperback rather than on ibooks, even though its free on ibooks. I loved that it had all these mythical creatures an witches! But it does get a little gory towards the ending and it does have a really great twist I really wasn't expecting! But its really a great story and if you liked the hunger games or gory mythical stories you should defiantly check this story out!

And witches, trolls, draugs , poor orphan girl saves town, and princely brothers make an interesting tale.

Erika has been an orphan her whole life. Her only true friend is Finn, the son of the king. They met as children and have been inseparable since. She longs for the day Finn will finally express his feeling to her. She does get a confession, but not from whom she wanted it to be from. Finn’s brother Paul wants to marry her. She had to take Paul home one night and they run into an undead. It seems that the old witch tales are true and they have another witch on their hands. Erika has to find out who it is before there is nothing left of her town, but that is easier said then done, when everyone is a suspect. It is a race against time and many lives will be lost in the process. I really liked this book. It seems I’ve been hitting the jackpot with books lately. Erika was a very likeable character and I like how the author incorporated Fae and witchcraft into the story. I think it would have been just as great without it, but come on who doesn’t love magic? I could picture every thing in the book and that is very important to me. I need to feel like I am there for me to really enjoy a book. This was one of those books. :D It took me out of the real life and took me on a journey that I didn’t want to end. I hope the next one we get to know a little bit more about the Fae and their world. I want to say other things, but it would spoil the book for you. What I can say is that this book is not about romance. Yes, it plays a role, but it’s not the main focus of the book. If you love a good witch hunt this book is for you. Erika- She has never truly fit in anywhere, with her flaming read hair and not wanting to be tied down to a man. She is a free spirit and that’s what I like about her. She had to face many hardships and she has become a better person because of it. She can only truly be herself when she is in her wolf pack, which consists of her and Finn. Finn- He is another free spirit. He is the son of the king, but wants nothing to do with the crown. And that’s one of the reasons him and Erika get along so great. It’s hard not to fall for his bright green eyes and dark hair. Not to mention that BOD *MEOW* He likes to live on the wild side from time to time. There was only one part in the book when I thought he was a total douche, but I don’t wish to speak of it. Astrid- She is the only girl that Erika actually gets close to. I’m glad she has a friend like her. She is a sweet soul in the beginning and still is, but death will change a person. Paul- I don’t really know what to say about him. H just suddenly pops into Erika’s life asking her to marry him. You can tell he really cares for her. I felt bad for him most of the book.

This story tells the tale of Erica, an orphan, and how she connects with 3 royal brothers. The story is part mythology, part fantasy, part mysticism and ALL good! The characters have depth, the plot is very well-paced and the whole book leaves you wanting more. I'm very glad that book 2 is now out as I've just put it on my wishlist! There is no 'shock' value to this book, apart from the variety of creatures that appear in it, but this in no way devalued the plot or the writing style that it was written in. I have read some of the other reviews and there seems to be a general complaint that the conversations made it seem like it was present day rather than 704 A.D. My response to that is that I love how it was written as it makes it very easy and pleasurable to read. I'd love to see if the same people would read it if it WAS written in olde language! Like books chock full of mythology, witchcraft and fantasy? Then try this one! Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

This book has it all. Action, romance, intrique. I absolutely loved and am buying the next one as soon as i am paid. The only think that upset me was the way things ended with finn and erica. But im hoping that gets fixed in the next book. A must read! I started this book at noon amd finoshed ar 4 am. I could not put it down and became very unproductive for a day but it was worth it.

I didn't expect this book to be very good; I only read it, because it's free. I was badly mistaken, though. This book sucked me right in and I was engrossed to the end. I can't wait to read the sequel.

The characters were well written, the story line interesting through out, and twists to keep you guessing make for a freat book. Every time I thought I had one thing figured out I was pleasantly suprised with something new that kept me turning the pages.

Erica is a good character, especially when you need a heroine that is strong but still easy to relate to. The ending was sad but the best for the story, it made it so not everything is wrapped up in a bow but most questions are answered. I love Finn!
