Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Wednesday Books for the ebook ARC of Between the Blade and the Heart by Amanda Hocking in exchange for an honest review.

Valkyries only have one great responsibility. That is to return immortals to the afterlife by slaying them.
As a Valkyrie, Malin has always known that the balance of the world rests on her ability to carry out orders. When Malin discovers that her mother has spared the life of an immortal who was destined to die, her world is thrown into chaos.
Malin is now wondering if her mother is not who she thought she was. She also meets a gorgeous blue eyed guy named Asher, who needs her help slaying the immortal who destroyed his family.
The balance of the world is now at stake.

I give this book a rating of 5 stars and I highly recommend reading it. It was well written and flowed very easily. I really liked the characters. As soon as I saw this book on NetGalley, I had to read it. I really like the cover of the book too, which also made me want to read it.
