Review: Valkyrie 103 by Arizona Tape

Trying to hide a dead body gets Ylva trapped with an unlikely crew who might want her dead.

Valkyrie 103: The Afterlife Alliance


After battling Ryuga, a demon who tried to kill Ylva to get her powers at the end of 102, Ylva, Ryoko, Sim, Flavia, and Astrid are buried in a stone chamber. Ryoko is not talking to Ylva. Flavia feels that Ylva let her best friend die. Sim is hiding something. Astrid has always had a discordant relationship with Ylva. Then there are the demons on the outside who might try to get in to kill her. 

There is no way out and everyone on the outside seems too busy to rescue them. There is plenty of booze though, and with liquor flowing secrets are revealed. One desperate act puts a life at risk and makes them join together to risk it all to be saved.

I love this series. Arizona Tape brings something exciting with each new entry into “The Afterlife Academy” series and Valkyrie 103: The Afterlife Alliance is no different. There are emotional confrontations and physical fights. Booze is involved and therefore humor. There is also love and from some surprising places. 

Ylva continues to grow as a character and just as she is learning so are we. I have no clue if the decisions she is making are going to work and that is exciting to read. Tape makes you care about her characters and even root for the mean girl. I cannot wait for the next one! If you have not started this series, you need to. Catch up – I’ll wait (…maybe).
