My rating: 3.5/5 stars
I am glad I got opportunity to read this story. It’s good and interesting.
Blurb (in my words)–
“Carla” is about Vikings, Norse gods and the other immortals. The story revolve around main character of the book, Carla, 16 yr old, living normal mortal life in Shetland Islands. She is troubled with her occasional dreams about Norse Gods and immortal warriors. Life is normal until she is forced to become immortal. Granted powers that are equal to Gods which can decide fates of the other immortals. Story is about surviving in the world of immortals and finding out the purpose for which she made immortal.
Talking about characters- Antagonist was really nice, full of surprises, and interesting. Carla’s trainers were amazing, I liked Daryl. Bond between Carla and Amy was nicely described, I liked their love for books and how they found solace in it. Carla was Okay! As she was warrior, I expected her character more strong. I felt she was not ready to face the situation, to trust her powers, and gaining control over it. Her struggle in surviving immortal world and her love for mortal life was very deeply described.
I feel, this book was serious, full of betrayal and survival. Dreams of Carla made story bit confusing in the beginning. There were lot of unrevealed secrets till the end of the book which kept me going. Legends in the book were interesting and satisfying in answering questions I had regarding story. I liked that part of the book most, but it took too long to reach there.
End was sad and unexpected. There are still more uncovered secrets for the next parts of the series and I am eagerly waiting for it. Overall, it’s a good read!!
Who should read it? Those who like to read Mythology fictions.
