Awakening to a new life isn't all Kyra hoped it would be, not when Grim isn't there. With Ragnarok in full swing, he is called away to fight before she even arrives. The majesty of Midgard and the halls of Valhalla dim without him by her side. Letters left by him help her cling to the hope that she'll see him again soon, and that he won't have forgotten her. In the mean time, she'll have to battle her attraction to another einherjar, as well as worse dangers that slither their way inside the very gates of Valhalla.

Here is a bit about Valkyrie Slumbering (novella #1):
After the murder of her father, Kyra's heart is consumed by the need for revenge. The hunt is all that matters. But a chance crossing of paths with the alluring and mysterious Grim threatens to derail her focus and her quest. Something about him draws her in, melts her walls, and speeds her heart. Like her, he is half Alfhiem, but it's more than that. He's funny, considerate, and treats her as an equal even in battle, something most of the Vikings of her native homeland would never do.
Steamy nights is one thing, but Kyra can't allow her heart to become wrapped up with anyone, not until she finds and kills the man who murdered her father. Traveling across the countryside with Grim, though, challenges her resolve in more ways than she thought possible. She still hungers for the hunt but that hunger begins to dim in comparison to the one that grows inside her for Grim.
Creatures that could only be from the legendary land of Midgard interrupt their hunt again and again, creatures that shouldn't exist in this realm. Soon it becomes unclear whether or not Kyra and Grim are the hunters, or the hunted. But who would hunt them, and why?
