Aleksandra Rybakov dies but is given a second chance to do the impossible, but she’ll need to dig deep for courage or lose all that she loves. As a Russian Japanese woman, Aleksandra straddles two worlds. She finds her destiny awaits her as a night witch. Dying at the Battle of Kursk wasn’t part of the plan. Norse goddesses Freyja and Idunn offer her a second chance and possibly immortality. Joining forces with handsome resistance fighter Jakob Matthau, they must battle monsters in order to secure not only their own lives but billions of people before Hitler exterminates them. Will they succeed or will they fail?
The Peacemaker takes the reader on an unforgettable adventure filled with action, romance, and of course two Norse goddesses. The backdrop is WWII and yet again, Heidi Vanlandingham creates a fantastic world steeped in history. The hero is a tortured soul bent on vengeance while the heroine is trying to find her way in a world gone mad. It’s interesting to see these two not only fall in love but work through their fears. The plot is so well-paced, there were times when I would get caught up in the story. The writing is superb with plenty of emotional tension. The characters come alive and the reader is pulled into the story. I thoroughly enjoyed The Peacemaker and look forward to the next installment in the series. Highly recommend!
