Freya

Now going by the name of Sara Vanadi, Freya in her prime was the ancient Norse goddess of love, war, beauty, and death. After losing believers, she was forced to lie low and act like an ordinary mortal. She hides out in a mental hospital, where instead of dismissing her claims to be a goddess as false, people just call her crazy. When Garen, a recruiter of sorts, comes looking for Freya, her cover is blown and her beliefs are in danger. And so, with the help of Nathan, a new employee at the hospital, Freya moves to Orlando, where she becomes a princess, gaining believers in the process, which increases her quickly ailing power. What unfolds, as a result, is an attempt at an intense, thrilling adventure- which unfortunately fails and ends up just being unrealistic, even for a science fiction novel. I enjoyed this book but I was disappointed in certain elements, such as character relatability, the dialogue, and the development of a plot. Further, the establishment of a clear villain fell short, making Garren annoying but not terrible. Overall, the novel was interesting but not well executed, with much room for improvement. For these reasons, I would rate the novel a 3.5/5 stars.
