Publisher's Summary

The Valkyrie Kara stood alone against the Ragnarok horde on Earth to ensure that the Asgard race and Valhalla could escape. For 5,000 years she has fought and evaded the Ragnarok race on Earth, just waiting for her people to return. A human woman, Kate, joins her fight, showing as much conviction and valor as any Valkyrie. Their friendship quickly becomes something more as they hold the line on Earth in battle, to herald the return of the Asgard.

    "Excellent Book!"

    Great twist on Norse mythology. I absolutely loved this book. Comedy, romance, action, and aliens! Whats not to like? In this book, the Norse Gods aren't Gods at all. They are an alien race and they're coming back to Earth for Ragnarok which is actually another race of aliens. Hollie Jackson does an amazing job with the narration.

    "great new series"

    I am so glad I gave the novel a chance. Great take on Norse mythology , with grand characters. It is wonderful to have the Valerie take centre stage, rather than the usual Odin and Thor stories. I like the blend of sci-fi, fantasy and mythology, set within modern parameters.
    A few scenes made me smile and one or 2 actually made me laugh.
    It isn't as funny as the iron druid series, but it definitely holds its own.
    Can't wait for book 2!

    "Loved the series!!!"

    The entire series is a fantastic blend of mythology, science fiction, romance and action. My only complaint is that each book is too short.

    "you will love Kate !"

    This is a very good listen. Everyone I have talked to about this book agrees that they love it to. It is a wonderful start to a really good series.
    When you have a great team like Erik Schubach and Hollie Jackson they can't help but put out a audio book that will pull you into the story.

    "Great Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Return of the Asgard the most enjoyable?

    A great first book from the Valkyrie series by Erik Schubach


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Return of the Asgard?

    The powerful ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To many to choose one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me laugh .... a lot


    Any additional comments?

    I am impressed by the wealth of detail Mr. Schubach incorporates into his Valkyrie stories. Mr. Schubach writes the way every day man/women thinks. It's not all perfect grammar or poetry - it’s just hard facts with a comic twist. The book has action - history - and life lessons all rolled up in a good story. I would say it is well worth the credit! I hope his other books in this series become available to Audible Books!!!!

    "Interesting take on Nordic Myths"
    What made the experience of listening to Return of the Asgard the most enjoyable?

    A fictional scientific explanation of the myths containing Thor, Oden, and the Asgard.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The least interesting aspect of the story is that some parts felt rushed. I would have loved to learn more about the city and the main character's adventures on Earth and on Asgard.


    What does Hollie Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brought life to the characters. I wouldn't have experienced the dialect and passion Hollie associated with the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Waiting for book 2

    "Brilliant Twist on an old Mythos"

    Schubach takes the classic Norse mythology and twists it. Instead of the gods of Valhalla we have an alien race. Instead of the Valkyrie and the Einherjar preparing for an event called Ragnarok, they are fighting other aliens called Ragnarok. In the story the ancient norse mythology was actually all started by Kara, the main character, when she got drunk and told the tales of her people to a group of vikings.

    Though all the characters are a little larger than life, since they are super old and powerful aliens, they all still feel real. And Schubach adds plenty of humor into his books too that make the characters feel that much more real.

    I absolutely loved this book and the series just gets better with each book. I highly recommend it.

    Where does Return of the Asgard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is well written with a very good story line that keeps you interested and wondering what is next.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Return of the Asgard?

    There wasn't any one thing, but the whole story itself.


    What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

    She did a 5 star performance. She played Kara so believable.


    Who was the most memorable character of Return of the Asgard and why?

    The main character Kara


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next book. Can't wait. Looking for more books like this.
