Waiting on Wednesday: Valkyrie Rising





Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.
I am waiting on:
Valkyrie RisingTitle: Valkyrie Rising
Author: Ingrid Paulson
Publisher: HarperTeen
EXPECTED PUBLICATION: October 9, 2012

Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there.
What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them.
Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl’s unexpectedly-epic coming of age.

Why am I waiting?
It sounds really good for one, and I love the cover. 
It is unique, and I like that is it set in Norway. I am sure it is going to be an action pack awesome book!

What are you waiting on?
Leave me a link so I can check it out!

Thank you for visiting Unabridged Bookshelf!

I like that it is set in Norway too! I've never read anything about a Valkyrie. Plus she falls for her brother's friend so there is romance too.
