Remarkable work of historical fiction. Intricate in structure, convincing and meticulous in detail, and surprisingly engrossing in character, this novel avoids typical plot, organization, and closure in favour of more challenging choices.
The modern-day frame story is of two lost souls in the high Canadian Arctic and, oddly, a historic marine chronometer. Nelson's brother (recent) and Faye's grandfather (long past) went missing in the area - but they're not there on a Dan Brown-esque mystery-thriller search for the truth. This case of missing, confused, and obfuscated identities resists such tidy progressions. Instead, the unlikely couple stumble their way into uncertain discoveries of questionable validity based on documents left behind by Nelson's apparently-missing brother. This modern day progression is interspersed with "found" documents and firsthand accounts of explorers, adventurers, and secret-history-movers of the last two centuries prodding at the edges of the unknown on journeys that range from Australia to the Arctic and very nearly everywhere in between. The dots don't connect - or maybe they do - but the real surprise is how enjoyable the ride is.
I don't usually enjoy fiction that lacks the classic rise-and-fall story arc or that evade neatly-wrapped endings, but the unconventional format of this book somehow worked for me. Strong research, a talent for authentic(-seeming) voice, and telling details bring to life far-flung locations and eras long since passed. I couldn't keep track of the location, time, character, and (potential, suggested, unconfirmed) links between the jumps for most of the book - and in fact, once I thought I'd worked out the trajectory, this book happily dumped the drawer upside down on me once more. In effect, the experience is like reading a loosely-linked series of short stories or historic records. I'm not sure if it's the inherently fraught circumstances of so many of the players, the exotically far-reaching locales, or the promise of a mystery to untangle, but this dense, interwoven narrative completely held my attention. Highly recommended read.
Olivia/Liv had been running for three days from the creatures who had attacked and tore apart her camp. She feared they weren’t far behind her. Every sound made her heart race and her skin crawl. There was so much blood and chaos back at camp her mind to be able to take in everything that had happened. Her ex husband Santiago and the board had forced a two week vacation on Olivia. So no one would be looking for Olivia here in Alaska for awhile. Olivia had helped make Madds, Parsons, and Goldberg the best insurance in the business.Olivia was a Risk Analyst for the company and was excellent at her job. Liv heard something chasing her and used the last of her energy. That was when Liv looked over her shoulder then bumped into a big man and passed out. Blue had followed Liv for three days after he killed Roman’s men. Blue had stumbled across Liv’s scent. Victor would not be happy if Blue brought this exhausted woman to the den. With the war going on with the Hunters it was decided to bring in the packs and reside in the mountain. Being in close quarters with other wolves was hard on Blue as he was a loner by choice. He didn’t pledge his allegiance to any pack. Blue was in a contract with Cassandra until they had a pup. It was convenient as Blue wanted pups but no relationship and Cassandra had agreed to provide them. Victor was the pack’s Alpha and Cassandra was his sister. Blue/Bodvier had three sides to him as he was a Berserker- human, wolf and the beast. Blue also had a resistance form silver from his past when he had been caged as a young wolf and his owners had been cruel and unforgiving in their punishment. Blue was very attracted to Olivia but told himself that wasn’t for him. Blue liked his women submissive and that was the last thing Olivia was. Blue found he wanted to mark Olivia and realized she was his true mate. Blue want to Cassandra to get out of the contract about the pups and she understood. Blue had no control over who fate gave him as a true mate. I definitely enjoyed this book . only one part really bothered me which was when Blue choked Olivia while having sex. I can go with most BDSM but not that. I didn’t like that. Otherwise I found the book a good read. I love how blue and Olivia reacted to each other right from the beginning. I liked how Olivia and Serina- the Alpha’s mate- became friends. I loved the adventure, action, and intrigue in this book. I liked Olivia’s journey to be her best self. I liked the plot and pace. This book kept my attention from beginning to the end. Olivia and Blue had such hot chemistry which is normal for mates. I loved the characters and the twists and turns in this book and i recommend. I would rate this a 4.5 if I could
This is a must read for every fan of Norse mythology fan. Even if you have not read or seen much Norse mythology you will love these books. This urban fantast trilogy is the perfect mix of modern world with accident gods roaming this world among us.
Follow Solina as she discovers she is part of a world she never thought was real and as she learns so much she never even thought of. She uncovers secrets she was never meant to know, which puts her in danger and on the run. During her journey she meets some new people but quickly learns that she can’t trust everybody and people will betray her to stop her from finding out too much.
All three books are jammed packed with action, laughter, sass and just the right amount of romance and they will keep you on the edge of your seat with some pretty big and awesome plot twists.
Overall, I highly enjoyed all three books and can only recommend them. I rate it 4 ½-5 ★
Olivia Esmerelda Vasques has always been in control—in the boardroom, in the bedroom, and in her life. But when her partner/ex-husband insists she needs a vacation, Olivia is reluctant to give in until the board of directors issues an ultimatum: take a vacation or don’t bother coming back.
So hiking Mt. McKinley it is. Not her idea of fun, especially after she stumbles into something she can’t quite explain and doesn’t really understand. All she knows is that the sexy warrior she meets has promised to keep her safe. The problem is, she doesn’t know if she can survive him.
Bödvar (Blue) Varangian never expected to have his ass handed to him by the saucy firecracker that barrels into him in the woods. Scared out of her mind, and just a bit moody, she’s now his responsibility. However, she doesn’t take kindly to him telling her what to do, even though she’s been thrust into a world of shifters and vampires and is obviously in way over her head. He knows her type, yet he can’t help wanting to tame her. But his cravings run dark; something he suspects will have her running faster and farther than the threat she currently faces.
Can two people from two different worlds find a way to navigate their journey of friendship, love, and their darkest desires?
