    Modern day girl collides with mythological

    *I requested a copy of this book for an honest review. Phoebe thought New York was dangers, until she gets a glimpse into the life of Asgard. Phoebe is struck by electricity at her day job at Macy's. She's tossed into the whirlwind world of Asgard and more as the shock was sent to awaken her Valkyrie side. Phoebe comes to grips with crazy notion that the mythological gods and creatures really do exist with a first hand experience of the terrible pain they can inflict. Yet, she finds Fen who helps her at every turn when he doesn't have to. With Fen's help she returns to New York where her and Ingrid were separated, just to learn now she must find her way to the Valkyrie stronghold. Phoebe is dropped into the dangerous mythical world of Asgard and beings of power to learn about them. Her way through it, is the rough way. By rough I mean painful and deadly. But in all the pain she suffers, she finds one person that helps her. Fenrir the wolf. Fen, as Phoebe has taken to calling him, is trapped in a different world and those wanting Phoebe dead send demons and more after her, drawing the two closer to each other. Fen... Mmmm. He is a hot catch! Fen sounds delicious but he's also the strength that Phoebe needs at her side too. He's old in human terms but he know much of the Asgard ways and beings. Without knowing it, he's teaching Phoebe about his world as they come across dangers. I love that Phoebe is an honest person. She's not hiding information from Fen. Well, maybe one piece of information, but that will have to come out. Right? Even if it's not verified yet. Phoebe trusts Fen and doesn't want to lose the one person that's helped her in this crazy new world. I love how Phoebe is determined to keep her friends with her and all are to stay safe. This is a strong will that I find great in a character. A modern day girl trying to make a living has collided with the mythical world of gods, demi-gods, demons, the hags, and many more powerful creatures. Phoebe is stronger than she ever thought, and will have to fight to not be a victim, and she's determined to do just that. A great story of Phoebe coming to her power but still needing to understand it, but she suffers along the way realizing she is more and can do much more than she thought. She comes across many things and people, but she knows she has much ahead of her to set straight the prophecy that the Norn (the three hags) will do anything to stop, including kill her. This book is the beginning for Phoebe. She never knew of the mythical world or valkyries, demons, demigods, and more. Her eyes are opened to the world that exists parallel to the one she grew up in. We get to see, with Phoebe, the dangers present and why they want her. This story is Phoebe learning who and what she is, and accepting it to live. I'm curious to see how Phoebe grows in the books to come, now that she finally has seen the truth. I didn't feel as drawn to Phoebe in this book, but I wasn't turned off either. I liked what a saw and I'm wanting to see it grow with each book. We have a cast of characters that have their own troubles and complications that could conflict with each other, but they have knowledge and power between them that will come in handy. The action that Amanda is known for writing is present in this book as well! There are terrible troubles at every turn that Phoebe has to face, along with decisions to make. If you enjoy Amanda's Jessica McClain series, you'll love this one too!

    A whirlwind adventure!

    Struck is book one in the Phoebe Meadows series by Amanda Carlson. Struck is deeply rotted in mythology, it’s full of action-packed fast-paced adventure, and gripping characters that will enthrall you from the moment they are introduced.  This novel moves at a whirlwind, giving you multiple twist and turns. Once Phoebe meets the people she feels she can trust, she gives them her un-devoted loyalty and will stick with them. Together they make a powerful team and will make their way to a safe haven for the time being, until the next adventure.  Phoebe was a great heroine. She felt genuine and some of the things she goes through, all I can say is that the author made those moments very vivid, and I can’t believe she held herself together so well. WOW! Fen is pretty awesome. I liked him. He’s strong, loyal, and I look forward to seeing more of him. Their is a little insta-love thing going on that I didn’t really get into, but I understand why the author put it in. I would like to see it flushed out more. Tyr, he doesn’t talk much, but he defiantly has a presence. I’d like to dig deeper into him. Sam I really liked as Phoebe’s best friend. She was funny and rolled with everything that went down. I’d love to see her hook up with Tyr.  Last, I loved the sneak peek into Freed. I did a little girl squeal. Can’t wait for the next adventure in the Phoebe Meadows series.  Many reads will love this world. It’s unique and their aren’t many stories like this one. If you love valkyries, you are guaranteed to love this series. If you haven’t had a chance to try a valkyrie story then I suggest picking this one up and giving it a try. It was my first valkyrie book and I relished the story.  Rated: 4 Struck Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary ARC copy provided by Amanda Carlson with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.
