Review – Perfekt Order by: S.T. Bende


All’s fair when you’re in love with War.

For seventeen-year-old Mia Ahlström, a world ruled by order is the only world she allows. A lifetime of chore charts, to-do lists and study schedules have helped earn her a spot at Redwood State University’s engineering program. And while her five year plan includes finding her very own happily-evah-aftah, years at an all-girls boarding school left her feeling woefully unprepared for keg parties and co-ed extracurricular activities.

So nothing surprises her more than catching the eye of Tyr Fredriksen at her first college party. The imposing Swede is arrogantly charming, stubbornly overprotective, and runs hot-and-cold in ways that defy reason . . . until Mia learns that she’s fallen for the Norse God of War; an immortal battle deity hiding on Midgard (Earth) to protect a valuable Asgardian treasure from a feral enemy. With a price on his head, Tyr brings more than a little excitement to Mia’s rigidly controlled life. Choosing Tyr may be the biggest distraction—or the greatest adventure—she’s ever had.

Perfekt Order is a book filled with tons of Norse mythology with a new, fun and contemporary twist. It is a book that will keep you flipping the pages with “aw”, real, and heart-stopping moments.

With this story, I respect the fact that all the secrets did not come spilling out early on. That S.T. Bende took the time to develop her characters and relationships before having all the “oh-crap” moments hit the fan. Also, I truly enjoyed the side characters in this book. I feel like Brynn and Henrik were a huge part of why I enjoyed this story. They are both so easy-going yet protective and constantly smiling and doing amazing things at every turn. That is another thing I really enjoyed about our cast of characters, that all of the main characters were truly good at heart and that is something I always admire.

With all that being said, I really enjoyed this book in the beginning. It was so intriguing and made me kept wanting to turn the pages. About half-way through I thought it became semi-repetitive though with regards to the romance and Fenrir. I also felt as if a lot of focus was put onto Tyr even though Mia was our protagonist.

Overall, I thought Perfekt Order was an enjoyable, fun read. I absolutely love all the mythology references and uses that are weaved into the story. If you’re looking for an exciting adventure yet cute book, I would say this is for you.
