I love the world that Gratton has created in this book. A contemporary setting akin to our own, except the dominant religion is Norse and the gods and magic are real. The differences range from minor, everyday details to pretty significant, and she develops it seamlessly. I would have kept reading for that alone.

On top of it is a very good story that feels, in its basic structure and contents, like it could be one of the classic Norse myths and well-developed characters that we come to care about. The further I read the more engaged I became and the more excited I was to keep reading.

The one thing that didn't work for me as well as it could have--and I say this both as an introspective sort myself and knowing that saying it is a cliche (though I don't say it that often myself)--is that the telling, particularly at the start, was too much inside Soren's head. I wish we could have gotten to know him and his issues through his actions instead of his angsty, overwrought navel-gazing; I wish Gratton had done more showing and less telling.
---
That's a pretty minor concern in this instance, though, and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
