Valkyrie Rising - Ingrid Paulson

Valkyrie Rising (Valkyrie, #1)Serie: Valkyrie #1
Release date: 2012
Stars: 2/5 

Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there.

What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances.

I was really looking forward reading this book, but it disappointed me big time. I really did not like the writing styles, there was just to much description. Ellie is the main character, but she wasn't a likeable character to me, she annoyed me. All the characters didn't do it for me, I might add. They where just so shallow and under developed. I just didn't care what happened to them. Then there was this love story between Tuck and Ellie, it was just there. One day they where friends and then guess what, they became a couple. It was just weird and I really couldn't follow where that came from, they had zero chemistry. I could have been a great story, the concept was very good. It wasn't just for me.
