Title: Struck
Series: Phoebe Meadows #1
Author: Amanda Carlson

When Phoebe Meadows gets struck by a strange light in the stockroom of Macy’s, life as she knows it flies out the window. As if being hit by lightning isn’t bad enough, she’s accosted in the subway by a man with a missing hand, arrives home to find a raven on her kitchen counter, and her neighbor, Ingrid, shows up dressed like a gladiator hell-bent on protecting her.

Before Ingrid can shuttle her to safety, Phoebe is kidnapped and tossed into one of the Nine Worlds where she’s quickly forced to come to terms with what she is: A valkyrie. The only problem is, she has no idea what that means.

After a narrow escape, she finds an unlikely ally in Loki’s son, Fenrir. Together the valkyrie and the wolf must battle their way back to New York City and reach the valkyrie stronghold where Ingrid is waiting for her. But with danger and obstacles at every turn, she might not live long enough to learn the full truth about who and what she really is…


Struck begins when Phoebe ends up getting "struck" by lightning in a department store. She has no idea how that's possible, or what actually happened but she just wants to go home. However, her neighbor Ingrid decides Phoebe must run away because someone is after, and apparently she is a Valkyrie. Phoebe doesn't know what to do, but once she's kidnapped things get even worse, now she must have Fenrir help her on her journey through this new world. 

Struck was a very interesting read. It had a very good plot line, although the end was kind of frustrating.  It ties in mythology with some twists and turns along the way. It was a very fast paced book with some romance, and a lot of action. 

However, the thing that frustrated me the most was how disbelieving Phoebe was. I really hated how she handed things in the beginning. And I also disliked how there was kind of a little bit of insta love. Other than that this book was very enjoyable and I liked it.
