What is a Wish Maiden?

In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie is a supernatural young female who selects warriors who die in battle and escorts them to Valhalla.  Valkyries are also known as wish maidens because if you can capture one, then she must grant you a wish.

Here is a little bit about my first book in a young adult series, titled WISH MAIDEN:

When 17-year-old Rafe winds up on the wrong end of a pistol during a bank robbery, he’s convinced he’s a goner. That’s until she shows up; the mysterious, beautiful girl named Kara who saves his life and gets stuck in his head. There’s just one catch: that beautiful girl is no girl at all, but a 1,000-year-old Valkyrie, a powerful being from Norse mythology who does the bidding of the gods. Who, by the way, are all real. Who knew?
Now Rafe and Kara are caught in a forbidden infatuation between mortal and immortal, not to mention a race against time as an unseen power tries to use their love to bring about Ragnarok—otherwise known as the Apocalypse. Puppy love has never been so dangerous.
