The Unleashing
The Unleashing | Shelly Laurenston
Winging It Kera Watson never expected to face death behind a Los Angeles coffee shop. Not after surviving two tours lugging an M16 around the Middle East. If it wasn't for her hot Viking customer showing up too late to help, nobody would even see her die. In uncountable years of service to the Allfather Odin, Ludvig "Vig" Rundstrom has never seen anyone kick ass with quite as much style as Kera. He knows one way to save her life--but she might not like it. Signing up with the Crows will get Kera a new set of battle buddies: cackling, gossiping, squabbling, party-hearty women. With wings. So not the Marines. But Vig can't give up on someone as special as Kera. With a storm of oh-crap magic speeding straight for L.A., survival will depend on combining their strengths: Kera's discipline, Vig's loyalty... and the Crows' sheer love of battle. Boy, are they in trouble.

I love large teams of complicated women so this book worked so well for me.

The #birds prompt reminded me of this series and the kick ass Crows!! It‘s really an amazing series about bad ass women, Norse mythology and giant sexy men!! #springintoreading @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88

The only two books I've read in June. I've been really stressed at work and also nervous about having knee surgery in a couple of weeks, so the reading just isn't happening. I'll be off of work for several weeks after surgery, so hopefully I can get my mojo back.

Power went out. Fire is burning in the fireplace, baby is asleep, and Little Man is playing with his LeapPad. It's the perfect excuse to crack open a new book and do nothing! #NotThatINeedAnExcuse #ReaderRationale #nslittens

I liked most of the characters and the mythology was good, but man that ending was too open for my liking. I may pick up the next one because the characters in that one seem even better.

#breakfastandabook Today I'm having egg in a hole, with hot sauce, bacon and coffee. I'm hoping to finish The Unleashing today. I'm enjoying it more than I was initially and am curious to see where the story is headed.

Fun book. Not my favorite in terms of style of romance, but fast-paced and witty.

Ignore the cover of this book. It's stupid and has nothing to do with the plot and all of its amazing characters. Yes, there is a romance but it is unimportant and unrelated to the story line.
I really enjoyed this and look forward to the other installments. Shoutout to the BookRiot podcast 'Recommended' for the suggestion.

Fantastic! I love the Crows! Kera‘s acclimation to the crow clan is wonderfully awkward and Vig is gloriously straightforward! And Kera‘s dog, Brody Hawaii is just the best! Oh my goodness do I love that pooch! This is a fun start for a new (to me) series, and I can‘t wait to move on to the next book. Definitely a pick!

CoffeeK8 💖 this book! 2y

An enjoyable enough read that I'll be picking up the next in the series. Kera, a former Marine, is given a second life after she's murdered by becoming a Crow, a Viking Clan. These Clans carry out tasks for various Norse gods, which is interestingly different world-building for a paranormal romance.
4/5⭐s

willreadforfeels I liked this book, but I liked The Undoing (book 2, I think?) even more. Because the main character in that one is an introvert book nerd Crow; her sister Crows love her but don't understand her. It was very cute. 3y
ScientistSam @willreadforfeels the berserker Crow? She's a great character! 3y
willreadforfeels @ScientistSam: Yes! I just about giggled my way through most of her story! Partially because I could totally identify the whole "why won't you leave my alone? I'm reading" sentiment. 3y
ScientistSam @willreadforfeels looking forward to reading it more now! 3y

drokka I've read about a third of this and the one throng that bothered me was that I felt the cover didn't match the person it is meant to represent (in my mind). Having said that, I like the story. 3y

This book was so much fun! It's marketed as a romance, but it's really not. It's about a bunch of women kicking ass for Norse gods. The romance is a side story, but still very much appreciated.

Not sure yet how I feel about the switching POV. So far kinda wishing she'd stick to one.

"You wallow in their dislike. You love it." - a book in which women are actively NOT seeking approval? OK. I'm on board.

This book would have dwindled on my TBR had it not been for the Under The Covers Roundabout book challenge. I LOVED it!! Originally recommended by smart bitches trashy books. Bad-assery, norse mythology, tribes of women, saving the world with a smidge of romance thrown in. My first #urbanfantasy read. I did find it odd that the cover is not of a member of the clan of crows though. #Romantsy

An ex (or late) Marine and her rescue pit bull join a Valkyrie like bunch. With a weapon-making Scandinavian-dour Viking hero and bloodthirsty "Crow" warrior women supporting cast. For fans of #KresleyCole 's #Immortalsafterdark

This was a random grab for me and it turned out to be quite fun! It gets a bit silly at times and I did get really tired of all the arguing that slowed down the pacing, but the humor is pretty good and when the action does happen it's spot on.
Overall it's a quick and fun read

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love anything by Laurenston. This start to her new series was amazing. It has all the humor of her other books with Vikings and gods!
