Mythology expert Caroline Capello agreed to marry Loki, the Norse god of fire and lies.

She didn’t realize the most dangerous part of their marriage might be the honeymoon.

Review:

I loved The Trickster’s Lover, so when I found out there was going to be a sequel I was thrilled! Though only a novella, Honeymoon delivers adventure, excitement, and a whole whack of steamy sex. And, of course, the narrative encompasses mythology in a way that’s accessible but also more in depth than you’d get from reading a basic Norse myth book. In other words, this shit is my crack.

I love Ms. MacLeod’s writing style. She weaves evocative description with action and humor in a way that you can’t not love. And the plot? The plot, people! I thought I went into this knowing what I could basically expect. I should have learned with MacLeod’s last novel that no matter how much I think I know, I will end up being surprised. And I was. In particular, there’s one sex scene that I never saw coming. I was surprisingly into it, too. Especially since it fits Loki’s character to a tee!

I only wish this had been a full length novel instead of a novella. It wasn’t rushed by any means, but I just wanted more of it. All the same, it was a good way to cap off Caroline and Loki’s story and I’m satisfied.

That being said… I certainly wouldn’t turn down more Loki and Caroline action. I look forward to seeing what Ms. MacLeod comes out with next!

This is meant as a standalone and it can definitely be read that way, but I highly recommend reading Trickster’s Lover first—if only for the fact that if you haven’t read Trickster’s Lover, you’re missing out my friend. Really, really missing out.

Rating: ★★★★★
