As I noted in my goodreads review, this is a very nicely done book. I liked the weaving of the two realities and the mythic strands woven in (though I confess, I had to look up a couple of references).
I generally get impatient with books that are a little too action-oriented at the expense of character development, but Fecke does a nice job of balancing both.
Is there a sequel yet?

An interesting novel that is different but pretty good. I found this book The Valkyrie’s Tale by Jeff Fecke on smashwords. I love mythology and that is I admit, what made me attracted to this book.
Lorelei Voss is a valkyrie apprentice. She has visions of a world in which there is more sophisticated technology than her own. She also has a twin from another world, if you will, who is having visions of her own world.
The story unfolds in a unique adventure. Lorelei’s place of home gets destroyed and she and her friend are the sole survivors. Now undertaking a quest, they seek to bring balance to the two worlds, if one can. Along the way, they meet other people and faerie creatures. Some of them help the women on their quest and others are out to destroy them.
I like The Valkyrie’s Tale by Jeff Fecke and I rate it an 8 out 10. I’m wondering if Fecke has a sequel to this book since he did leave it on a cliff hanger. The eBook was released in 2008 according to the publication date and it is now 2012 so who knows. Either way, it is an interesting tale and I enjoyed it immensely.
