A must walk a dangerous line between mortal and goddess Because if she loses her humanity who will save the world?Blending fantasy and science fiction in a contemporary Hollywood setting Slay A Freya Novel is the second book in Matthew Laurence’s action packed series about an ancient goddess in a modern worl The first book in this series bowled me over I mean it was sassy and action packed absurd and so much funThis book really isn't any different in those respects but I struggled with it Part of it probably had nothing to do with the book It was a book hangover from finishing a different series and while I thought I wanted something completely different from what I had just finished apparently that was not the caseBut part of it I think was the book It's hard to put my finger on what exactly it was but I'm going to tryOk so FreyaSara is still as sarcastic and kick butt as ever She will grind you into dust and examine her nails as she does so and it's awesome But I think part of what was weird about this book was that Sara was so unsure about herself And I get that it's not a bad thing to have flaws she has plenty in other respects like being pretty impulsive and morally iffy in some of her actions but the self consciousness was odd I mean we pretty much never saw her uestion herself in any respect in the first book and then about a uarter into this one she suddenly starts feeling unsure about a lot It was an odd tone for her to takeI will say that one of my complaints about the first book was fixed this time around I thought Nathan felt like a flat character last time but that was definitely not the case this time around I appreciated that And getting to know other characters like Sekhmet She's an interesting oneThe action's also not as fast as it was in the last one Last time we were getting introduced to Norse mythology if you weren't well versed in it anyway figuring out just what exactly Finemdi wanted and discovering Freya's character This time it just felt slower Sara decides she's going to be a movie star for all the idolization but every step of her journey was mentioned Her spa days her shopping sprees her magicking her way to the top In the reality TV soaked world that we live in I thought we may not have needed all of the details I saw in a way why they were there but it slowed the paceI will say that the end was uite adventurous It took a very huge risk and I thought it paid off That was gutsy and I respected that I'm interested to see where that goes from thereIt's so not a bad story I'm still very invested in the story Just the wrong book at the wrong time I think
