Blue Remy
Author Bio
Native of Santa Maria, CA, Blue Remy is the author of The XIII Hour™Series, and the raw, gritty series Twisted In Love. When she’s not writing, Blue lives to ghost hunt whenever she can, which tends to help her imagination and outrageous character ideas. She was first introduced to the paranormal world through her Grandmother and her haunting bedtime stories. Blue then found the Grimm’s Faery Tales, and fell in love with spinning wild stories about the evil characters that everyone hated, giving them their own past and history to be told. Blue is a total fan girl when it comes to anything Wonder Woman. She collects Living Dead Dolls, rubber duckies, Sugar Skulls, stuffed animals and tarot cards which she is an adept reader of. Blue currently resides in the paranormal hub of the South with her husband, who feeds her gourmet coffee and cupcake addiction. Blue Remy is a member of The Paranormal Romance Guild.

From Hel, With Love by Blue Remy

Hel hath no fury like her Raven scorned…
Fallen Valkyrie Legionnaire, Raven Aquilus, has always known she was an outcast to her kind. Stuck 
in New Orleans as the Protectress of the Nine Gates of Yggdrasil, she lives as close to the edge as her 
family will allow. One fateful night would change it all – Someone ritualistically slaughtered a guardian in 
one of her Gates, leaving Raven lying in a pool of blood. Ordered to find the killer before she dies along 
with her precious guardians, Raven is placed in a race against time, being forced to enlist in the help 
of a Human FBI paranormal agent. Together they must stop the serial murders before an ancient war 
reignites – and Raven loses everything, including a new found love, all to a jealous half-breed …
Welcome the XIII Hour™ series. Betrayal, Lust, Love, Murder, Jealousy and Revenge. The faery-tales that 
your mother never told you about just came true.

My thoughts:
This is dark fantasy at it's finest.  A host of incredible characters led by an amazing heroine, Raven.  Raven's character is both unreal and believable.  Duncan is in a class all his own.  All the characters, however large a part they play in the story, are carefully constructed and intricately designed.  The plot unfolds, billowing like a cloak, around mystery, betrayal, distrust, loyalty, evil, love and an incredible sense of family.  Steeped in Norse mythology, this story grabs the reader tight and doesn't let go - even at the end.  
If this is what Blue Remy has offered as a first book, I can't imagine what is in store for the rest of the series.  I finished the book wishing that there were already more books to read.
