 Nordic Liosálfar Svala and Viggo have been in love for a thousand years. After two years apart Svala turns on her TV to find Viggo in the public light, posing as a movie star. She tries to seek him out and the events that follow forces some deep buried secrets to surface...

Svala and Viggo have spent a hundred lives together over the last thousand years. As Liosálfar, Nordic light fairies, their job is to do good and to uphold a balance in the mortal world. A balance, often compromised by the Döckálfar, Nordic dark fairies.

But even good fairies need incentive.

Svala and Viggo are kept apart each life until they fulfill their assignments. Only when, and if, they succeed are they allowed to be together for whatever period of time the powers that be decides. Sometimes they are together for decades, other times years and during the last union once only three weeks.

In this life, Svala turns on her TV and learns that Viggo has become a popular movie star. This is not only highly unexpected, it indicates something is wrong and that Viggo is attempting to contact Svala before their assignments are carried out, an action which is strictly forbidden.

Svala seeks him out, but not without breaking a few rules of her own, and learning that things are not always as they seem.

(Although I got to read this for free my review is still 100% honest)

This story is so sad. Well I mean it is but it isn't. Its only the first part of the full story but I'd have to say I'm intrigued so far. Its a story about Svala and Viggo two nordic fairies who are pulled apart from each other. They have to complete tasks to be back with each other until that life end. Then they have to start all over again. Being away from the person you love is hard enough but having a happy life with them and then being pulled away the next to only start all over again must be terrible.

The main character is Svala who is blonde with the nordic fairies blue eyes. She seems to only want to be with Viggo and makes all of her choices around that statement. I feel really bad for her in this section of their story because of how Viggo treats her.

In this section of their life Viggo is a big movie star and has all the girls loving him. He is dating his co-star who isn't Svala. He seems like hes just trying to get through this life without her.

Anyways this book was better than I thought it would be. Of course their is a lot of unanswered questions but that is why this is novella series. I would like to read the next one to figure out what happens next. I would say that this is diffidently worth a try.

I gave this 4 out of 5 bats.
