Books On Our Radar: Freya by Matthew Laurence

When a book is described by an early reviewer as norse mythology meets Clueless, AS IF, we’d pass up featuring it as a BOOR post. Taking a norse god and placing her in a modern contemporary setting is a stroke of genius and I for one, can’t wait to get my hands on this one when it releases on March 14, 2017.

Freya

Freya is the myth. Freya is the legend. And she’s about to make one hell of a comeback.

Sara Vanadi is more than she appears to be. In her prime, she was Freya, the ancient Norse goddess of love, beauty, war, and death. Her power comes from belief, but she’s been laying low for a few decades—for an ancient goddess in the 21st century, true believers are hard to come by. But when a new, rising power threatens to destroy the world and bend the divine to its will, Sara is determined to take this evil down. But first, she’s going to need some new clothes and a manicure.

Blending elements of fantasy and sci-fi in a modern-world setting, the first novel in this new young adult series is perfect for fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.
