Who is more dangerous, supernatural foes or enigmatic allies?
That's on Magnus' mind a lot while the thousand-year old "Chosen Warrior" deals with bikers, cartels, a Yaqui shaman,
visitations, explosions, crashes, brawls, and the occasional gunshot wound. Being an Einherjar hiding out from Odin and his Valkyrie is hard enough without having to wonder who is on your side and who is just waiting with a knife for your back. To make matters worse, it's one of Odin's own immortal wolves that Magnus aka Mouse is sworn to rescue. This time, being tough, scrappy, and a fair hand with runic magic might not be enough.
Narrated by Gary Bennett, Wyrd Gere by Steve Curry is the second audiobook in the Valhalla AWOL urban fantasy series. Action, suspense, and magic kept me enthralled as Magnus sets out to save a wolf.
Friend or foe? Magnus will soon find out as he clashes with the cartel, bikers and explosions to save one of Odin’s immortal wolves.
This series is fun, fast-paced and filled with mythology, magical creatures, thugs and more. This installment moved at a faster pace than its predecessor as Curry peeled back Magnus’s layers and expanded the world building.
Through it all Magus remains fairly calm as he battles the baddies, finds himself incarcerated, kidnapped and befriended. All the while he is thinking about one particular female, but an oath keeps him focused on the task at hand.
Curry blends Norse mythology with current culture references and even had me craving some roadside tamales.
As for Magnus, he may be over a thousand years old and an Einherjar, but he has his limits which gave way to brawls and beatings that required him to think fast and ask questions later.
There is an overall story ARC from government agencies and supernatural hunters to those hunting him from his past, but each book contains a suspenseful task.
I am looking forward to Freke Wyrd Voodoo coming this spring.
The books are available in Kindle Unlimited, which reduces the cost of the audiobook. I highly recommend listening as Gary Bennett does a wonderful job of bringing all the characters to life. Each has their own distinct voice from tone to accent. The stories work well in audio format and enhance the overall storyline.Action, suspense, and magic kept me enthralled as Magnus sets out to save a wolf in Wyrd Gere by Steve Curry #audiobook #UrbanFantasy #GaryBennett Click To Tweet
