Review: The Undoing (Call of Crows #2) by Shelly Laurenston

*****5 Stars*****
I'm pretty sure Shelly Laurenston knows the way to my heart and it's a sexy yet nerd-tastic Viking with an all encompassing knowledge of philosophy and world history. In her last book, she introduced several different warrior clans sponsored by Norse gods. In The Undoing, we get a closer look at the Protectors, which are essentially Viking librarians who can also kick major ass. We also see the return of the crazy Crow Clan and all their hilarious antics. Jace, the least sociable Crow and hater of all things small talk, is now my favorite heroine in this series. She manages to balance being a kick butt berserker with an astounding knowledge of languages and history. Which makes her a perfect match for Ski Ericksen, smarty nerd sex god! Shelly Laurenston manages to pack a lot of action into the books in this series, they almost read like an action movie. But she also manages to bring huge amounts of humor to the books, this book I especially liked all the nerdy goings-on in the Protector's house. Jace, like all the Crows has a seriously messed up passed so it was really satisfying to watch her and Ski fall in love in the cutest way possible, which is a nice contrast to all the drama, action, and intrigue going on around them. As with all Laurenston books this was exceptionally well written and paced, and the level of world-building and character depth makes me look forward to the other books in the series.

A risk worth taking…
No one would ever accuse Jace Berisha of having an easy life—considering her husband…you know…killed her. But that was then! Now she fights for mighty Viking gods with the spectacular and vicious Crows.

But things are turning very bad, very quickly because a vengeful, ancient goddess has come into the world with just one thing on her mind—ending it. And the only way they can hope to stop her is if the Crows join forces with their one-time enemies, the Protectors. A Viking Clan created to do nothing but kill every Crow they see.

Thankfully, Protector Ski Eriksen is a peace loving kind of guy. Because the woman he is desperately trying to get close to is the beautiful and not-very-chatty Jace. Battling Nordic clans? Unkillable goddesses? Jace’s mean-spirited dog? None of these things would ever get in the way of a true Viking!
