Well it looks like it’s a bit of a fantasy friday from B&N with Ingrid Paulson’s YA Valkrie Rising ebook that is another contender to the Twilight Fantasy crown.  I’ve never been a fan of the series but I’m in the minority with all the money it made for the author, studio and stars!   I loved reading Norse tales in high school so am familiar with the mythology.  I’m hoping this will have a bit of a feminist bent to it and not the ‘woe is me’ I’m a helpless chick most of these movies seem to have as the ideal vision of young women.

Of course the translation app is useful for anyone of any age especially when FREE!  So grab a book and an app before you have have to pay and look at the authors other novels if you like this first taste of the series.
