    But it's got story!

    This book is listed as erotica, but it really isn’t. Not that there aren’t any steamy sex scenes. There are, but I don’t think they’re any steamier than a lot of mainstream romance, these days. But that’s not really it. My experience with erotica has been a lot of very steamy sex scenes loosely tied together with an absolutely minimal plot. This isn’t a value judgement; I enjoy erotica. This book, however, cannot, by the wildest stretch of the imagination, be said to have a minimal plot. It has an intricate, well thought out plot based on Norse mythology, more specifically, Ragnarok, and the possibility of stopping it. I mean, most of us would rather the world didn’t end, wouldn’t we? Our heroine, Caroline, fell in love at first sight with Norse mythology. So much so that she: <blockquote>spent her sweet sixteen summer teaching herself to read German while everyone else snuck off to Mexico and had magical first kisses on the beach? The one who decided to move to Chicago and study ancient Viking gods while every other person in my family ran Capello’s Landscaping & Tree Surgery?</blockquote> Now she’s at university, and incredibly excited that the books she’s been waiting for have finally arrived at the library.<blockquote> The Vikings and Their Gods. Being a Recollection of the Pagan Beliefs of the Northmen. And the Sem Guði Hátíð, The God’s Feast. This was an account of a celebration held for the Norse gods in Svartalfheim, and it had never been translated into English. I was going to do it. I was going to be the first person to translate it. All I had to do was teach myself to read Icelandic.</blockquote> Like I said, madly in love. She starts out with dictionaries - Icelandic/French (it’s what she could find), French/English (she learned German, not French). Fun, huh? Ms MacLeod has a wry sense of humour.
