Ragnarök Rising (The Omega Prophecy #1) by Nora Ash

Ragnarök Rising (The Omega Prophecy #1)

Five possessive gods and the end of mankind. That’s my fate.I always thought the end of the world was a myth. But then, I also thought Norse gods were make believe too.They’re not.Five of them are coming for me. They claim I will only survive if I surrender to them, body and soul.But they don’t realize it’s about so much more than carnal servitude. I am so much more than they could ever suspect. So much more than even I knew.I am the only...

    3.5* STARS!!I've been heard about Omegaverse (Reverse Harem in PNR) for a while and not really interested until now. I got curious with Ragnarök Rising and the blurb sounds amazing. The author is new for me, so it doubles curiosity. Pretty cover too.Alpha = Top/DominantOmega = Bottom/submissiveBeta = ??? Maybe in the mid of them. But Alpha didn't take interest in Beta.Annabel lives her ordinary life and never thought Gods is real. When she's on ...

    Nora Ash new series! EXCITED!!!I love Nora's writing style. It is the perfect balance of adventure and steamy!Our leading lady Annabel, thinking she's just your average everyday human (beta model) heads off on an awfully big adventure to visit family friends in Iceland. Things come undone pretty quickly once Annabel discovers that not only are these 'family friends' not your average Icelandic Farmers, but they are actually a trio of Alpha 'Godlin...

    3 out of 5 stars rating.This is my first time reading a female oriented omega verse. I did not know they existed. That being said, trigger warning of dubious consent for many of the sex scenes in the book. The story also ends in a cliff hanger.Magni was asshole number 1, followed by Saga. In the scale of my least favourite of Annabel's mates, this is followed by Grim, who really wasn't bad to her, if anything he was the one most against taking he...
    You can expect the usual alpha omagaverse that Nora Ash is known for. When I read the description I was like, Thor-like over the top alpha males, strong-willed female, polyamorous....looooove.... So engrossing. I do have to say there were a number of typos. If you're like me and find typos take you out of the story- then just be aware. With lesser authors and books I usually instantly stop reading. I was able to overlook though as I felt the stor...

    Personally, a jealous / possessive hero is my favorite type of hero and I therefore enjoy reading Omegaverse as it is (usually) the norm for this genre. This is however the first time I read a RH (Reverse Harem) Omegaverse book and I was a bit sceptical how it would work and if there would still be that element of possessiveness, but the author managed pull it off very well and I loved it.First, we are introduced to Annabel, the human heroine, wh...

    This was a great reverse harem read with so much adventure, mystery, suspense, and so much steam! I was glued to the pages, wondering what twist would happen next. It was utterly captivating! Nora Ash is a wonderful writer and knows how to capture an audience! Highly addictive! Can't wait for the next one, give it to me!!!!!I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    OMG apparently falling in love with someone who raped you is OK since he did it to save his brothers... I'm gobsmacked and hope no violence victim will ever come across this book

    What. The. Actual. F*#k did I just read?? Totally was not expecting that. Dnf. Chapter 9 and I'm done. D. O. N. E. Done!
  • Vicki
    I really enjoyed the Omegaverse aspect of this book - I find that theme super hot (though I know it is not to some peoples' tastes) and it was hot in this book too, though the book is more story than sex, so no need to worry about lack of substance. For some reason in this book I found myself more interested in the story taking place in the beginning - when the heroine is just meeting some of the potential harem members at their farm in Iceland. ...
  • Carol 27
    This is a very entertaining paranormal romance featuring several gods and demi-gods of Norse mythology. In a time when Omegas are scarce, Annabel has had the luxury of gaining an education and enjoying her independence as a Beta. Never a fan of overbearing, insufferable Alphas, she’s therefore surprised by her strong attraction to the Lokissons brothers when she arrives in Iceland on vacation. The discovery that the secretive brothers have lure...

    ~Glorious God mayhem~Myths, magic, glorious Alphas who are pitted against each other. For many centuries, five demi-gods have been waiting the appearance of their fated mate. When Annabel Turner arrives in Iceland intending to delve into Norse history for her doctorate degree, she ends up running from her hosts, the Lokisson sons Saga, Bjarni and Grim right into the eye of a storm, thinking she was going to feature in a pagan sacrifice. Instead, ...
  • Hillary
    Omegaverse + Viking Gods= some dominating fun with a little magical in-betweenMaybe it's the combinations of genres between RH romance, Norse mythology, and Omegaverse!! Who would have thought they could work together but it do. First of all this book fits firmly in the Omegaverse that Ms. Ash and others like Zoey Ellis write in (there is the classic Alpha/Omega dynamic and of course the "knot"). Usually, the author's books tend toward the darker...
  • Nickole
    Rcvd an advanced reader copy from the author for giving my two cents. Interesting reverse harem story involving the end of the world as we know it. We meet Annabel, who is 10 yrs late getting to Ireland at the request of her parents to stay with family friends. When she arrives tall norseman Sage greets her. Back at the family farm she meets brooding Grim and joyful Bjarni. Annabel is feeling off...shes sick with hot flashes and knows smtg is wro...

    This was... wow. I love norse mythology and it's always fun when people play with folklore and the end-of-the-world type things, but this, combined with Ash's amazing story-telling talent blew my mind. I'm currently in a reading funk and my reading experiences are usually half-way filled with irritation or critique if it isn't "perfect" but with this one, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Ash writes intensely hot scenes that I totally felt in my stoma...
  • Ginger
    I really enjoyed it. The Norse mythology, though not completely accurate, was engaging. The character are seemingly multifaceted and the intrigue behind who the baddie is sets up the next novels in a great way. I will say that the h’s reaction to finding out about Ragnarök was less than what I anticipated. Though, I imagine my reaction of “but what about all the cats? the horses? koalas?” wouldn’t be quite the normal response either. Ser...

    I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced copy of this book. I am always looking forward to Norah's book releases and as always the wait was totally worth it. Ragnarok rising follows Annabel and her alphas as she discovers what it means to be an omega & how they could stop Ragnarok from destroying the world. The squabbling between the Lokissons and Magni had me laughing alot and made the book more enjoyable to read. Annabel's journey is nothing shor...
  • Caroline Doig
    This is book 1 to The Omega Prophecy and I loved it, I’m a big fan of Norse Mythology and this story has it in spades. 5 sexy alpha’s Bjarni, Grim, Magni, Modi and Saga are the sins of Norse gods and they are as arrogant as they are alpha’s they all fight over 1 woman. Annabel is human she is a kick a$$ and gets questions later kind of woman and she has 5 sexy alpha’s fighting over her, god help her how can she choose just one or does she...
  • Amy
    Wait until these Viking demi-gods get their filthy hands on herI was surprised that there's a little bit of a playful aspect to the story. It's still dark and dirty but there are some lighter moments and some funny exchanges between Anabel and her mates that keep the story really fun to read. Her mates mean business but they still joke around or tease each other, but these moments of levity don't take away the overall feel to the story. If you're...
  • Jan Grass
    Viking God Omegaverse sign me up. I am a huge fan of Nora Ash's books and this was no exception. I loved the push and pull of the characters. It did need more clothing optional interaction and I expect we will get more in the following books. It does end with a cliffhanger. The heroes are alpha to the extreme bordering on Alpha ass... but what do you expect it is an Omegaverse. I look forward to seeing Annabel become more of a bad ass heroine. To...
  • Gerry Hvozdovich
    Amazing! So imaginative, but at the same time I learned an awful lot about Norse mythology. Ragnarok in mythology is the end of the world. Annabel is a human woman sent by her parents to visit her homeland and meet the Lokissons, unaware that she is meant to mate with them in order to save the world. The characters are so well written. The alphas are so domineering but such MEN! Annabel is rather pissed off finding out she needs to have sex with ...
  • Dana
    This was my first omegaverse book. I thought it was very good. Annabelle is headstrong and kickass. Didn;t care for some of the crude words used, or the forced interactions but it didn&t detract from the story. The world building was good, the characters are pretty well described. I'm really anticipating her relationship with Grim. I'm betting it will be explosive! Overall, this was a great read and i cant wait for the next one.I received a free ...

    I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy. This is a story of a girl who's fate is yo stop ragnarök, but to do that she has to link hershelf to 5 demigods, and that she realy didn't want to do. In this book Annabel meats, Saga, Grim and Bjarni, the 3 lokissons brothers and Magni and Modi, the Thorssons brothers that are fated to save the world. The problem is that nobody not even the brothers believe she is more than just a ticket ...
  • Deb Cechak
    Nora Ash starts her latest series, The Omega Prophecy, with an intensely heart wrenching and provocative tale, Ragnarok Rising. An omega whose heart may break as she tries to save the world, by loving the sons of Loki and Thor. A story like you have NEVER read before. And one that will leave you wanting so much more, in the best possible way. Can the ‘alphaest alphas’ actually claim her heart, with the intensity of which they claim her body? ...
  • Kathryn
    The world created has been marveoulouslly constructed. Using viking/celtic and the asgardian culture, has built a world full of prophecy and the start of Ragnarok.Betrayal, secrets, and amazing characters are contained in this wonderful start of the series.Please keep in mind this is an omegaverse, containing triggers like dubious consent. I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an unbiased , honest review.
  • Christa Livingstone
    WOW WOW WOW! I couldnt wait to read this because I loved Nora Ash's Feral series. This was even better than expected. The world the author creates is so interesting. All the anti heroes are great and I cant wait to read more about them. Annabel is feisty and strong. This story has all the sexiness of an omegaverse story with the detail and intrigue of a full lenghth novel. I loved this book and I hate that I have to wait even one minute to read t...
  • Kelly
    Ragnarok is nipping at their heels in this RH. We have Norse gods, an imminent end of the world setting and 5, count ‘em 5 Alpha’s hot for one poor omega. They are demanding complete submission but they don’t know who they are dealing with. Great character development and more story than you sometimes get in a RH. Did end on a cliffhanger but this is a big story. Anxiously awaiting the next episode. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).
  • Jennifer Ehninger
    Annabel thinks she's going to Iceland to work on her degree. Instead she's there to stop the end of the world and needs to take five men as her mates to do it. A wonderful fast-paced story. I loved everyhting about this book! Strong alpha men and a strong feisty woman to keep them in their place! A great start to a new series.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Wow - this story just reaches out, grabs you by the throat and won't let you go! A creative spin on Norse mythology coupled with unforgettable characters, plenty of steam and a plot filled with action, suspense and adventure make this one a real winner. Highly recommend, and can't wait to read the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
