Ragnarok - Worlds Collide

Rate this book
A secret NASA experiment gone wrong, the chaos that explodes, and one reporter seeking the truth who follows leads where she shouldn't.

On a flight from Paris to Los Angeles Tegan Mulholland is intrigued & charmed by Pete, the mysterious stranger sitting beside her. But when their plane almost falls from the sky and other jets in her vicinity wink from the radar, the official explanations that follow reek to Tegan’s retired investigative journalist mind of cover up.

What is not declared: A secret NASA experiment has warped a column of time instead of space, plucking with it the planes out of our era, and a band of Norse warriors from the Vinland colony millennia ago into our epoch. Rowing eastward and back to Iceland, the contrail of Tegan’s plane appearing after the strange aurora and moving westward high above, the Norsemen conclude are Odin’s order to return to Vinland and the modern day Canadian coast, where, just days before, the skraeling Indians had driven them out.

As news reports flood Tegan’s living room of murder and massacre, speculating about which gang of roughly dressed bearded marauders are responsible for mayhem and murder around the quiet Canadian coast, Tegan has a hunch that the story is not what it seems. She quits her Hollywood Exec job and embarks on an odyssey that leads inexorably ever closer toward the Norsemen’s hidden lair.

Only Pete, the Lockheed consultant she had steadily fallen in love with during the harrowing flight and since, has any hope of saving her.

If you enjoy intrigue, conspiracy and romantic suspense, Ragnarok will grip your imagination and not let go.

I want to thank Michael for letting me read to review this novel.

This is not my usual genre, but the synopsis intrigued me, it is a cleverly written, well researched story. Although I must admit the science of it all did confuse me somewhat, but I got the gist. Interesting, likeable characters, and despite their ferocity and savagery, the Vikings were also likeable, just lost and out of their depths. Definitely worth a read!

I've just begun this book and already I can see that it is superb. I would expect nothing less from this author! I am thus far quite impressed, and intrigued. I will provide a full review upon completion of this book.

I thought this book was very good mostly, though I thought perhaps it got a little wordy in the middle before picking up the pace again and could maybe have benefited from tighter editing. The idea of the modern world as the Viking Ragnarök, the end of the world as perceived by Vikings, is particularly clever.

Fun and interesting

I liked the concept of Vikings transported to the present. The "science" behind that concept was over my head. In any event, there was enough action to keep me interested. It would make a good movie.
