I'm just going to stop right there. Just because I know what you all must be thinking. Why would Freya who is engaged to Bran start an affair with Killian? And why would you read a book about that? Well I already knew of the love triangle because I read Triple Moon and it was mentioned.
And knowing how the love triangle ends it really doesn't bother me. I really wanted to read this series because I wanted to know more about Freya and Ingrid and their past.
The book is narrated in third person. It switches between Freya, Ingrid, and Joanna's point of view. It is also divided into parts and there are chapter titles.
I find this surprisingly because most books don't use chapter titles anymore.
I found that it was better than in this book then Triple Moon. Joanna, Ingrid, and Freya are all Norse Goddesses.
