3 1/2 stars
Odin Yorkshire is a very unusual character-to say the least- with his antisocial behaviour and sarcastic toughen up approach to life. Mind you there is more to his background that we slowly discover. He has very little concern for others except, eventually, Jessica. He does care about his niece, Frankie but shows it again in an odd way. Frankie, oh boy, I wanted to wrap that girl up and smuggle her away as quickly as possible. However, she could stand on her own two feet and with some female company started to bloom. Charlie, Jessica’s son, is a breath of fresh air in the story. Now, Jessica is the backbone to the story, I feel. She is the glue that holds everything together. I love the way she isn’t afraid to stand up to Odin and can be sassy in her comebacks.
There are some funny parts that do make you actually laugh out loud with some very witty expressions like this one... “Yeah...Henchman with a big wrench.” Odin has a way of talking that either makes you want to groan and slap him or chuckle. He is quite precise in his estimations but off the mark with others.
The story is quite complex and there are many parts which seem to become closed or solved and then the story moves on. With this small pieces of a much larger puzzle slowly start coming together, however, I found it was on the slower paced side as well as a tad confusing at times and these are the reasons why I gave it this rating. Even though there was so much packed into the story I enjoyed the story overall.
