#AtoZChallenge: Valkyrie

25 Apr


This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. ย It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. ย ๐Ÿ™‚


Valkyrie is the creature of the day. They come from Norse mythology. They are depicted as one of a host of females that decide which soldiers die and live during battle. They choose among some of the deceased warriors and bring them to Valhalla. Valkyries are known to be lovers of heroes and other mortals.

    Valkyries are awesome. I was just listening to Lorde’s “Glory and Gore” and it made think of Valkyries.

      They are cool. Sounds like there might be a new character or two in one of my future novels.

    I’m surprised these creatures decide the fate of warriors, but they seem interesting characters. I like your theme and will return to read more of the posts.

    These are ladies you do not want to mess with. I love that they were the judges for who to take to Valhalla.
