Reviewed by Author Holly Newhouse for Eternal Book Reviews on April 12, 2015
Just as devotees of certain television shows wish for longer seasons and more episodes, readers of AJ Tipton’s “Her Elemental Viking Series” are left ending one book reluctant to return to the world of reality and yearn for one more page, one more book that will touch the heart and soul. In this regard, AJ Tipton has been more than accommodating. In her continuation of this series, “Her Fiery Viking: A Paranormal Romance (Her Elemental Viking Series),” AJ Tipton writes in such a way that readers can feel as if they are right inside the book and as if they have stopped reading and are now watching a movie play out that only they can see and it is by far an amazing movie. This is a trait she shares in common with some of history's greatest authors.
As I read the well written and descriptive prose contained within this amazing book, I was struck by the variety of emotions this fantastic author was able to evoke within myself. As someone who loves books in the paranormal genre, I was extremely fascinated by the depth of the characters contained within the lines of this book for which the author has insightfully named. You meet Mikkel, who has been cursed with one heck of a fiery temper that he’s unable to control. He also can’t control his lust for the beautiful and Sexy Joanna who also has an uncontrollable temper herself and who wants nothing to do with Mikkel, or at least that’s what she leads others to believe. Their chemistry is an inferno of heat, compassion and understanding. These two along with other characters in the book will take you on a fast paced thrill ride of sexual tension, infernos of epic proportions, anger issues and a love that can save all. It’s the kind of love every woman wants and the kind of alpha male many women can only fantasize about. Her Fiery Viking will take you for the ride of your life!
Many of the themes in the book about loss, pain, chaos, anger, hilarious laughter and that all-consuming love really resonated with this reviewer and kept me fascinated with the story as I yearned to read faster and faster to see what would happen next between the two. They will also resonate with readers of the paranormal romance and romance genres who will not experience a single dull moment while reading this amazing book!
A favorite part in the book is when Mikkel yells at Joanna aka Jo to run away and she flat out tells him to shut up and look at her now. The scenes are so realistic and believable as well as being exceptionally written that one can’t helped but imagine being right there with the two main characters in the story. The character development is exceptional and realistic, the setting of the scenes had just enough description to capture the reader’s attention but not overdo it, and the same can be said for the dialogue between characters and the descriptions of the characters themselves. I could really see everything while reading the book and that is a big plus with me, especially when the author gives just enough to spark the reader's imagination but not too much as to over-inform. The scenes lead logically in to the following one and the story line flowed very nicely while the plot was fantastic and well developed. There were minor grammatical errors here or there, very few in fact and they were not significant enough to stop this review from reading and would have never noticed them at all.
It is often said that a truly amazing author always gives a part of his or her soul in their writing and that can absolutely be said for AJ Tipton as well. This amazing author has made a new fan out of this reviewer.
I highly recommend this book to lovers of paranormal romance who seek out beloved authors that can deeply move them and send them on a roller coaster ride of various emotions throughout the story. Although, if you're not a fan of paranormal romance and it's unique prose then this book is probably not for you.
I definitely give this book 20 stars which is my highest praise for any book because it is just that good!
