Kindle Review Bjorn Cursed (Forgotten Brotherhood Book 4) by N.J. Walters

Bjorn Cursed (Forgotten Brotherhood Book 4) by N.J. Walters

Description

Lucifer is up to his old tricks, causing problems for the Forgotten Brotherhood. This time, he’s had a woman removed from the Norse afterlife and placed her right in the path of Bjorn Knutson. After the slaughter of his wife and family centuries ago, tortured and broken, Bjorn was cursed as the first Norse werewolf. Now he’s been tasked by Odin himself with killing the woman who escaped. Failure is not an option.

Before he can track her, he stumbles across a woman being accosted by three men in the middle of the night. Even though she’s human, he intervenes and is shocked to recognize the face of the one woman he could never kill — his wife Anja.

She’s also the one he’s hunting…and if he doesn’t kill her then both their lives are at stake.

Each book in the Fury Unleashed series is a standalone.

My Review ….
I’ve read all the books on this series, and I’ve loved everyone of them, big, gruff and surly, alphas to the core and happy to be on their own. But as you get to know each character, you realise it’s a bluff, they were lonely, and they needed their other half to drag them up and onto the light. 
And Bjorn is not exempt from that either, but unlike his brotherhood, Bjorn had a family, he had a wife and children, but failed to look after them. They were slaughtered in a raid on his village! 
But he’s secure in the knowledge that they are happy and together in the afterlife. 
Bjorn is the first werewolf that was created, by Odin (he saw Bjorn’s pain and granted him vengeance against his enemies) and so he’s been around a long time. He has had regrets, namely bitting people who didn’t deserve to become wolves, he’s learning control everyday, and he is at peace with himself and the wolf within. 
He’s also wary, it doesn’t seem to be a coincidence that he’s being sent out to track this missing person from Freya’s (Norse gods wife) home. The brotherhood have been targeted for a while now, and the main culprit seems to be with Lucifer.
He’s in for a bigger surprise when he catches up with his target….. 
Anja is confused, she’s got no idea where she is, she’s been in the dark for what seems like a lifetime, so she’s in no rush to return. Being ambushed by men has her fighting for her life. Until a stranger shows up to help her…… 
This book is different from the others. It had a completely different feel to it, and at first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the new formula (if it ain’t broke don’t fix it) 
But by the time I put the book down I had to admit I thoroughly enjoyed it. 
Bjorn has been mentioned a few times, and been seen briefly in the previous books, so I was curious about his story. 
A husband and father that loses his whole family. So you can see why he’s so driven for revenge, and then to protect the innocent. He’s a great character, the first original werewolf turned by Odin is a great story. 
The action like in the previous books is a steady flow. Catching up with other characters in the series is always a favourite part of mine. We get to catch up with how they are getting along. 
A few laughs and funny moments break up the tense and heartbreaking moments. 
Really well written as all her other books in the series. 
There are a few surprises in the book. 
You don’t really need them in order, as it stands on its own ok. But reading them in order gives you a better sense of the world the forgotten brotherhood are living in. 
So will Bjorn capture and return the female back to Freya? 
But what if it’s someone he knows? He knows she will be punished, can he really give her back to Odin and the Norse gods?
