Freya is the Norse goddess of love, beauty, war, and death, but this book takes place in modern times. Freya, who has disguised herself as a girl named Sarah, finds herself being asked to join a shady organization that wants to gather all of the gods remaining in the world today, and move them to a facility where they can keep them away from the human society and use them to their advantage. If she refuses to join them, they will work to try and either erase her from existence, or force her into joining. She runs away with a random boy that she had just met. Together, they will work and try and find away to destroy the organization. They work to get other gods to help them, and meet quite a few colorful characters. Read Freya to find out how it ends.
I think that Freya was an excellent book. It had action, adventure, suspense, and a little bit of romance too. There are some swear words sprinkled into the story, but it doesn’t really take away from the experience of the book. If you do not feel comfortable reading that type of content then I would not recommend it, but if you are fine with it then by all means I suggest you look for the book. I think that it was a good book, but it was a little slower than I usually like a book to be. I love fast paced books, so it was kind of awkward trying to read it. If I were to rate this book I would probably give it a 4 out of 5.
