August Buddy Read: Valkyrie’s Daughter by Tiana Warner

I am so excited to announce our August buddy read, THE VALKYRIE’S DAUGHTER by Tiana Warner! Two sapphic books in a row? I know, I’m being very self indulgent right now. But the sequel is set to release in 5 days, so it just feels right!


A bright yellow background with a lighter yellow pattern on it. At the top and bottom corners is a dark filigree. In the centre of the cover is a dark shield with a javelin across it and wings behind it. At the top, it reads "Nine worlds. Two outcasts. One destiny." The title, The Valkyrie's Daughter, and the author, Tiana Warner, are both written on the cover as well.Paste Magazine Pick for Best New Fantasy Books of July 2022

From the time she was born, Sigrid has only ever been ordinary. Being paired at birth with a plain horse—instead of the powerful winged mare of a valkyrie—meant there would be no warrior path for her. No riding the skies, no glory among the nine worlds. Just the simple, unremarkable life of a stable hand.

Everything changes when a terrible enemy ambushes Vanaheim and Sigrid sees a vision of herself atop a mythical stallion, leading the valkyries into a harrowing battle. Finally, she can grab her future with her own two hands and become the hero of her own story…if she dares.

But her destiny is tied up with Mariam, a fallen valkyrie who’s allied herself with the very enemy Sigrid is trying to stop.

Now Sigrid has left ordinary behind as she begins a journey with the beautiful—if treacherous—valkyrie, each step bringing her closer to answers…and to awakened feelings for Mariam.

But the life Sigrid left behind is starting to look a lot like paradise…especially when her destiny lies in the one place no mortal should tread: the gates of Hel.
