Synopsis (Goodreads):
Stieg Engstrom, Angriest Viking Ever, has got big problems. The human Viking Clans of earth are in danger of being obliterated—along with the rest of the world—and the only one who may be able to save them is a super pain-in-the-ass Crow. Most people annoy Stieg, but this is the one woman he really can’t stand…

Erin Amsel loves being a Crow! Why wouldn’t she when the other Viking Clans are so hilariously arrogant and humorless? She’s not about to let all that come to an end! She just didn’t expect to be shoulder to shoulder in battle with Stieg. Then again, he’s so easy to torment—and also kind of cute.

With the future of the world riding on them, Stieg knows he’ll have to put aside his desperate need to kiss the smirk right off Erin’s face. Wait. What? He didn’t mean that—did he? No! They have one goal: To conquer the idiots. Because nothing bugs Stieg more than when idiots win. If only he can keep himself from suddenly acting like one….
Thoughts on The Unyielding: If you're in the mood for fast-paced action, borderline-to-all-the-way insane heroes and heroines, and possible world-ending shenanigans, THIS SERIES IS FOR YOU. THINGS HAPPEN in it from the get-go and you're pretty much hysterically laughing as you try to keep up.

In case you're wondering, by THINGS HAPPEN I mean a power-hungry goddess is trying to start Ragnarok and destroy life as we know it and the Vikings are sort of the only thing standing between her and complete destruction. Fortunately for the world at large, the Clans are super-charged and ready to throw themselves into battle all willy-nilly.

Even Erin and Stieg. Erin, who's made it her life's mission to irritate, annoy, and otherwise piss off everybody--mortal and god alike. And Stieg, Mr. Grumpy Pants.

They're kinda awesome together. Mostly because they're both so put out to realize that they *like* one another. Vikings, man. You gotta love 'em.

This book gives us closure on the whole Ragnarok thing (this time, I assume. Ragnarok isn't really a one and done, is it? I mean, any number of events could trigger it again, right? The Clans still have to hold the line and keep the crazy in check.), while opening up another can of worms. The Crows are just as hysterically insane as ever and the men who fall for them are sort of resigned to being pulled into their crazy.

In other words, THEY'RE FUN!
