Today I am delighted to be sharing my review of ‘Wyrd Gods’ by Susana Imaginário, the first book in the Timelessness series. This was a book that had been on my radar through SPFBO and Norsevember, so I leapt at the chance to read and review and a huge thank you to Susana for the audiobook. I started with the audiobook which is beautifully narrated by Sarah Kempton, and ended up buying the ebook so that I could bounce between the two and didn’t have to put it down.
*Disclaimer: ‘I was given a copy this book in exchange for an honest review, all views are my own.’*
The God of Time wants to destroy Eternity.
A mysterious immortal seeks vengeance.
And a reclusive deity does what no god should ever do: she answers a prayer.
As punishment, she is stripped of her powers and trapped in a mortal’s body. Now a Wyrd – a fated god – she is haunted by the memories and thoughts of her host and must hide her true identity in order to survive in Niflheim, the rival Norse Underworld.
There she discovers the afterlife is not quite what it used to be. Niflheim’s new ruler threatens the precarious balance of a world overrun with outcast deities and mortals alike.
To save her own sanity and find her way back to the stars, she must help the other Wyrd overcome their grievances to defeat this enemy, but those who would be her allies appear to have motives as hidden as her fragmented consciousness.
And yet it seems the greatest threat to her freedom comes from within, and the prize it seeks is her immortal soul…
