It’s almost been one full year since Amanda was claimed as one of the Favoured, the teenage mortals who inherit magick from the gods of Asgard.
Thankfully the past six months have been fairly quiet. Amanda has spent her time traveling to other realms, practicing new spells, and helping the Light Elves with a swarm of Hel bees.
But now there are rumors that the Dwarves' new king isn’t happy with Asgard. Worse, a malevolent curse is spreading through the Nine Realm, unleashing a terrifying darkness long thought lost to Ragnarok’s fires.
Amanda must battle this growing darkness within herself to help the Valkyrie to rise once more. If she fails, no one will survive the coming battle.
For fans who liked the darker turn in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, you will love the twisting shadows explored in the second book of the Asgardian Exchange series.

As a Norwegian I enjoy books about Asgard. This is an interesting book about the end of times. Well worth the read.
If you are looking for a young adult, fantasy series with strong ties to Norse mythology then look no further.
Amanda and the favoured are back to safeguard the realms, but all is not quiet for long, and they must save everyone from the wild hunt.
Mark Bryan builds fantastic worlds, like floating islands, and the magical creatures that inhabit them.
I can't wait to read this to my daughter when she get a little bit older!
The Asgardian Exchange: The Touch of the Valkyrie is a well written and complex book with a lot of background rooted in Norse mythology. It is action-packed, somewhat dark and mind-capturing story with great world building and well-written plot.
This was a great start to the series! I love seeing the characters grow and this is exactly the fantasy mythology style of book I’ve been looking for! Definitely recommend to any fantasy lovers!
This was a great entry in the Touch of the Valkyrie series, it does what I was hoping for based on the description. I had enjoyed the first book in the series and was glad that this series continued. It had the same style and was what I enjoyed about the first book. The characters were great and I enjoyed that they grew from the first book to this. Mark Bryan has a great writing style and I look forward to more from him.
"Cassie took Amanda’s hand. “Sorry. I know I’m being a bit of a blubbering mess, but Connor and I have only ever been apart a few times in our lives. We may not be brother and sister by birth, but I always know when he is in trouble—which is frequently. Usually I am with him, though.”
