Review; Fade (The Ragnarök Prophesies #1) by A.K. Morgen

What do you do when you realize nothing in your life is what you’ve believed it to be?

When Arionna Jacobs loses her mother in a tragic accident, her world is turned upside down. She’s forced to leave her old life behind and move in with her father. 

Dace Matthews, a teaching assistant at her new college, is torn in two, unable to communicate with the feral wolf caged inside him.

When they meet, everything they thought they knew about life unravels. Dace has intimate access to Arionna’s mind, and something deep within her fights to rise to the surface. They don't understand what's happening to them or why, and they're running out of time to sort out the strange occurrences around them.

Their meeting sets an ancient Norse prophesy of destruction in motion, and what destiny has in store for them is bigger than either could have ever imagined. Unless they learn to trust themselves and one another, they may never resolve the mystery surrounding who they are to one another, and what that means for the world.

My Thoughts
I think I have found a new favourite series, and a new boy book crush. I love Dace. okay so he might a bit possessive and protective but he is struggling with his feelings and struggling with who he is. he as no more answers than Arionna does but together they need to discover the truth about there connections and who they are

Arionna is a strong girl, still reeling with the death of her mother she then as to cope with all the crazy stuff happening to her, She handles Dace well and even handles his wolf who Dace is disconnected with.
Dace keeps the wolf caged inside, scared to let him out, scared of what could happen if he did but he struggles even more when Arionna is around, his wolf wants Arionna as much as Dace does which makes him all the more possessive of her. I liked that Dace was a shifter and not a werewolf it meaning that this book is different to other wolf type books I have read the Norse mythology also added a different dynamic to the story

I loved the Norse mythology in this book and so much is explained as the book goes on to explain the instant connection between Arionna and Dace.

Dace is a complicated character mainly because of his struggles with his wolf. he is an Alpha shifter and also as some control on normal wolves I did love the scenes when he was interacting with the wolves.
although he keeps himself mainly to himself he would lay his life down for those he cares for and would do what ever he can to protect them and there family.

Arionna's dad was a cool guy, he loves and understands his daughter realising she is an adult (19) he treats her like one and because of this they have a great relationship. 

This book kept going at a good pace, hardly giving me a moment to put it down, I had to be careful to only read once my son was in bed for fear of being neglectful, I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series
