The man looked like a god. Then again, he was one. . .
Jord Thorson was a god– the son of Thor, the Norse God of Thunder. In his search to find his missing father, Jord seeks out the mortal, Meghan Larson, who is in possession of his only clue–Megingjörð, Thor’s magical belt of power.
But when the belt decides to take matters into its own hands, locking itself around Meghan’s waist, Jord and Meghan are plunged into the middle of a massive conflict that rages across the heavens.
Giants, magical artifacts, and a golden city in the clouds weren’t exactly what Meghan Larson expected when that amazing belt arrived at her museum. Now Megingjörð is stuck around her waist and talking to her in her head. She’s got to be dreaming, but with the wonders around her and hunky Jord Thorson at her side, Meghan’s not sure she wants to wake up.

I enjoyed this book very much, it was hard for me to put down once I started it. From the first chapter to the last S.C. Mitchell took me on an adventure of Nordic mythology. Something I had never learned about. After reading this I have a whole new appreciation for it. I love how Greek mythology, Greek gods and the Egyptian mythology played a role in this story too. The two main characters were thrown into different worlds of conflict and adventure, of different worlds, different situations. They also had to find themselves and love. Chapter after chapter the wild ride did not stop. I laughed, cried for the fallen and truly loved Mr. Mitchell's writing style. If you’re looking for something to dive into to read and forget your reality for a moment. This is it! This is everything I enjoy in a book!

Mitchell has written a really fun adventure about some pretty unlikely characters. He starts out with a museum curator and a college professor and we quickly find out that the professor is actually the youngest son of Thor. Chaos ensues and there are romantic scenes and chase scenes and political wrangling, all guiding the characters to the end of this chapter of the story.
I hope there will be more - I want to see what will happen next in the nebulous world of the gods.

I love both Greek and Norse mythology, and romance which is not too surprising since I am here, so I had to pick this up.
It kept my interest through most of the book but there were some missteps in the plot and a few characters felt forced. The love scenes were good at first but they didn't vary much so they didn't feel fresh as I continued to read (lack of a better word).
The book was a simple read and I got through it pretty quick. I gave it three stars.

While the premise of the book is solid I was hoping for much more. The execution is lacking and the writing is weak and watered down. The first hint should've been in the synopsis when we start with a cliche (take matters into his own hands) then tie that cliche to a belt. Does the belt have hands? I give the author credit for the research on the Norse Gods but that's about it. The author's writing has to drastically improve before I consider purchasing another of their books. Lots of good titles here on SoulMate, and I would recommend picking another first.
