Rachel Tsoumbakos has had several articles published through mainstream magazines and currently writes extensively for Monsters and Critics.

Over the years, Rachel has been interested in many aspects of history. When studying for a Library Studies diploma, she discovered just how much she enjoyed researching and has since used these skills in several of her novels. However, it was her work with The Inquisitr that brought her into the world of the Vikings and she has spent several years delving into the sagas of this culture as well as the history of the Viking Era.

"The attraction of the main characters is present from the first meeting, even before Tora joined the bride program. The way the author describes their joining, it’s as if fireworks are exploding. The author doesn’t stop here, oh no, she puts barriers" Read more of this review »

“Listen to me you piece of shit, if you ever give the press information about me, my parents or even breathe a word about me to anyone ever again, I swear to god I will make it my mission to make your life a living hell. And, believe me I’ll do it with a smile on my face the whole time. You’re a worthless excuse for a Detective and everyone here knows it. You’ve screwed your way to the top and backstabbed Gena to get into your Captain’s good books. Well look around you honey, you’re a real star. No one stopped Gena or me taking you on. I’ve currently got you in a hold, where I could snap your neck if I wanted to, and not one person is stepping forward to help you. Yeah, you’ve really made it.” - Stephanie Carovella to Sandra Barton”
