It takes me forever to read a good book, but I finished this one pretty quickly (relatively speaking). I do a lot of research for my own writing and some of my favorite topics are the various early inhabitants of the British Isles. I found Freya's Child easy to read and chock full of interesting historical references. PJ Roscoe grabbed my attention and then drew out the suspense in a way that kept my attention throughout the book (though I grew a bit impatient at first). She skillfully entwined ...more

It is interesting how the author blends a contemporary main plot with the historical one these archaeologists are examining, and brings both times to life, to then blend them together with mystical twists when both worlds collide.
My only complaint is that there is a discrepancy in quality between the contemporary plot and the historical (Viking) one: the former has lengths and could be tightened a lot, maybe even some characters dropped, whereas the latter was written densely and tense, with gri

This is not one of my usual reads, but I enjoyed it, particularly the beautifully poetic language at the beginning.

A village massacre in Viking times. A present-day archaeological dig at the site of the massacre, the lead archaeologist of which, Kathryn, has been suffering terrible recurring nightmares. And a married couple – Robert and Helen -- whose marriage is in a bad way after Robert’s neglect and obsession with his career and then his mental breakdown, cause simmering resentments in Helen.

There are three intertwining stories in Freya’s Child.

We have Einaar, Astrid and Inga, of Viking family trying to survive in a hostile culture. The beliefs, customs, behavior, and values of Vikings was fascinating. This was my favorite part of the book, well presented and interesting. I wish there had been more. I would have liked to get to know this family more intimately especially little Inga who seems more of a shadow child than a reality, even during her own time. I also found the events in
