Exiled by Amanda Carlson

Audible

Phoebe having freed her half-brother from prison only to have him die at the hands of the Norns is now on trial for his death. Her arrival in Asgard is met with mixed feelings of intrigue and hostility. She is a novelty to the Asgardian population as the hidden daughter of Odin. The Goddess Frigg is inconsolable over the loss of her son and she holds Phoebe personally responsible even if hers was not the hand that killed him.

Phoebe and Fenrir must now navigate their way through their own trials and find a way to survive Helheim and Fenrir’s sister Hel as well as keeping clear of the Norns who still wish for Phoebe’s death while trying to save Baldur.

I loved the book and all of the twists Amanda put into the book. You definitely need to read Struck and Freed before reading Exiled. These stories are thoroughly enjoyable and Amanda’s rewrite of Norse Mythology is believable. If you don’t like any deviation of Norse Mythology you may not enjoy parts of the story as Amanda does take liberties, but her understanding of the Mythology shows even when she deviates from the storyline

Freed (Phoebe Meadows book 2) by Amanda Carlson

Freed
Amanda Carlson

Phoebe hasn’t had it easy since being struck. She’s been tossed through the 9 realms, and along the way found Fenrir (hunka hunka wolf) her boyfriend and Tyr (her half brother). Life at the Valkyrie Stronghold hasn’t been a cake walk either, although she’s getting stronger and learning to fight. When an old friend comes and tells her that if she doesn’t move quickly all chances of getting her mother back will be lost, yet more adventures come her way.

Phoebe’s ability to inspire loyalty among those she meets is amazing and she has a knack of finding the people she needs to succeed in her tasks. In this book we meet a whage (White Mage), a Milf (Not what you think it is), and Baldur the Norse god of light.

Again Amanda seamlessly wove mythology into our world, and you barely notice the liberties she took. You really have to know your (Norse) mythology to catch the inconsistencies.

You will love the antics Phoebe gets into and I loved the ending.

I do wonder if we meet Hermod in the next book.

Must read. 5 Stars
