ARC REVIEW The Unyielding by Shelly Laurenston

Book three of Shelly Laurenston's The Call of Crow series, The Unyielding surprised the fuck out of me. Erin in the previous books was a pain in that ass, annoying and it just made you think, what the fuck is wrong with her! Well this one explains it, kind of, it really helps with understanding how her brain works and honestly as the main characters she's not as annoying as she was a side character. Half way through the book I started to view as her as a Harley Quinn  type character, crazy as fuck but everyone still love her (but with way more of a temper and a non-existent fuse). Steig is the strong silent type, my favorite, a difficult and tough childhood but ultimately a viking through and through. His rough demeanor gives him a very intimidating look and a don't fuck with me attitude but really the guy has a soft spot for animals, just ask Hilda the goat. Erin is oblivious enough to not notice his feelings for her or even her feelings for him for that matter.  

This book was wow, it was a rollercoaster ride from the start. So much happens I couldn't even possibly begin to try and sum it up in a couple of paragraphs without rambling on and giving away the whole book. It can work as a stand-alone but I really wouldn't recommend it to much of what has happened is important. But the journey up until now has been been fighting to prevent Ragnarok, too late, and now all the other faiths are telling them, "It's your fuck up you fix it". Everyone has been working to find out how to stop Gullveig, and after all their research they discovered only one way to do it and only one of them can do it, the craziest of them all Erin. Meanwhile Erin has a theory on who the high priestess for Gullveig is and with the help of an unlikely partner, the Raven Stieg. Stieg found Erin attractive from the beginning but her abrasive personality was off-putting. But trouble seems to find Erin no matter where she goes and Steig is determined to stick close by and protect her from her enemies and from herself. It's up to them to save the world.

Overall, Outstanding! my favorite so far.
