Another day in Ancient Jorvik - More settings from/for Valkyrian Ventures revealed...

As it is the Easter Holidays and as my one of my bestest buddies in the world Tasha also works at a school we thought it would be an opportunity not to miss for a good old chin wag catch up.

So as I wasn't meeting Tasha until later on in the afternoon I thought it was also a writing chance not to be missed for as I am on holiday I had the time to go in to Jorvik (aka York) mid morning and have a good old strowl around and visit the places I actually write about and feature in my Valkyrian Ventures series. So here are the pictures of the real life places that are featured (somestimes with sligh adjustment) in my Valkyrian Ventures. You can read them by accessing the Valkyrian Sanctum Quarters (contents list) down the left.

This is the Starbucks Coffee Shop where 2 ordinary women meet for a coffee break. Little does anyone know or suspect that they are in fact Valkyries at work collecting souls in and around York.

Lendal Bridge, where a pair of Valkyries stalk in flight a dark elf who has snatched one of their appointed souls.

The unnamed bar/club a Valkyrie waits at her until her next soul collection appointment.

The corner where a Valkyrie catches a Werewolf trying to do something rather naughty.

There are no images for Valkyrian Ventures - Part 3 - Sacred Secrets - as that is all set in the spiritual realm of Asgard. Imagination required during reading :)

Lendal Tower where 3 vallyries hide during a reconnaissance mission.

To be featured in Valkyrian Ventures - Part 4 - Know Thy Enemy. Still a work in progress so is not yet released on blog.







View down to the River Ouse flowing beneath Lendal Bridge alongside Lendal Tower, where from the depths and in the shadows a dark Goddess emerges.

A dark emptry crypt like alcove where open and broken stone coffins linger. This is the place where a Valkyrie has a rather tense meeting with 2 Alpha Males from York's rival Werewolf packs.

I hope these photographs entice you to enter the world where the Old Gods are still much alive and kicking and as a treat for managing this long post and even bothering to read it you can now play a little game I've made:

Spot the Author? and guess where am I?
