Overview

Too Wyrd: Runespell Series: Book 1 by Sarah Buhrman

Nicola was never a hero. She was an everyday single mother, Heathen witch, and herbalist. She was happy with her quiet life until the night Joseph showed up at her door with news that her step-sister joined a cult… and she had gone missing.

Pressured by family loyalties, Nicola goes back to Indianapolis, dodging old enemies and calling on old friends to help her find her step-sister. What she finds instead is an ex with super-powers, monsters and demigods on the streets, and a detective ready to bring her in for a murder investigation…or three.

Can Nicola become the hero she needs to be, or will she lose everyone she cares for?

[Disclaimer:I received this book from a giveaway site, however it did not affect my review in any way] Nicola and her best friend Joseph have to save the world from falling into Rangarok: the apocalypse in Nordic mythology. As retired faith practitioner and interfaith supporter, the premise of this story was tantalizing enough to download, and exciting enough to finish it in less than 36 hours. Author Sarah Burhman knows her mythology, and setting the story in the top of the buckle of the Bible Belt had to be a tongue-in-cheek "dig" at the "regular folk" of Indianapolis. I Too exciting not to get lost in, Too Wyrd is a highly recommended romp into Norse Mythology you won't soon forget!5/5

Not much usual genre. But, I really liked this book. I learned a lot from it as well. So that was kind of neat. Great world building and awesome characters. Can't wait to see what's next.

Nicola sets off to save her step sister but learns she may be tasked with saving more than just her sister. Lots of magic, myths, and fantasy. Great read, lots of suspense and urban fantasy. Ready to read book 2.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It focuses on magic, quite a few fantasy tie ins from a few different belief systems, both older and newer, and the mystery behind whether or not the world is truly coming to an end. I hate giving away spoilers, so the rest you have to read this book and find out on your own. I'd recommend this book for fans of fantasy in the real world and mythology.

Wonderfully written, captivating story and characters, and heart racing action. I was absolutely riveted from the very first page. Nicola's tale starts out simply enough with a trip to find her wayward step-sister, but quickly turns into a non-stop race filled with demons, the Norse pantheon, a deadbeat ex, and a persistent detective. This is my first read by Buhrman, but it certainly won't be my last!

Give me a heroine with attitude, an excellent reason for wanting to keep the world safe, a bit of an unlucky streak, attitude, great friends and allies, and attitude. Thank you Sarah Buhrman for introducing me to Nicola! With a title like TOO WYRD I KNEW I was in for something special in the urban fantasy genre. Guess What? I got it in spades! Nicola is your average Heathen witch. She is also a single mother who will do anything to protect her child, so I guess that alone makes her a hero in my book! Then she gets the news, her step-sister has joined a cult and disappeared and now the family thinks it is up to her to find the wayward Murielle and bring her home or at least to her senses. All Nicola has to do is drop everything, head to another city, while avoiding her past mistakes and a few enemies she may have made. Not so easy when she discovers the cult her step-sister has joined is led by the father of Nicola’s child, the same jerk who walked out when she told him she was pregnant. Turns out the ex also has “super powers,” that he shouldn’t and they are part of the gifts of ancient runes. Oh, yes, and a few demigods, monsters and a detective who thinks that just because she keep showing up where dead bodies are piling up, she must be guilty of something. Along with her best friends and a couple of amazing Valkyries, this unlikely team of detectives are on the hunt for the runes so an evil god will not use them to create havoc in the human world. Hang on tight, because just when you think Nicola is going down, she bounces back up and keeps on going! Face it, if she doesn’t she could lose everything and everyone she cares about. Now that is incentive and Nicola is the perfect secret weapon, attitude and all, because that witch also has a heart, well-timed humor and is a fresh face on the urban fantasy scene!
