Great Odin's Raven! Check These Sweet New Covers

Hey, gang! It's mid-April and tax day here in the US, so I'd imagine some of you could use a drink. *hands mead to all the A-Z-ers and the tax-poor*  :)

Today, I'm sharing TWO fantastic new covers for a dear writer friend of mine. The talented (and cool!) S.T. Bende is re-releasing Elsker, the first book in her Elsker Saga with a shiny new coat of paint, AND she's giving us a prequel story, Tur.

These upcoming releases will lead up to a brand new book in the series (coming soon, I'm told ;). If you're fans of adventure, romance, and Norse mythology you definitely can't miss with these stories! 

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for a giveaway opportunity. 


Elsker - The Elsker Saga #1

You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God - an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms. Her orderly life just got very messy.

Tur - The Elsker Saga #0.5

Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. On the surface she has it all -- great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world comes crashing down. Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga’s best friend Ull is first on their list. With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because from the moment this battle begins, Inga’s happily ever after will be nothing more than a memory. 

Some things are worth fighting for.

S.T. Bende 

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.
