Separated by time. Brought together by fate.
Indulging her fascination for the Viking language and losing herself in an archaeological dig is just what Linnea Berger needs after her recent trauma. Uncovering an exquisite brooch, she blacks out reading the runic inscription, only to come to, surrounded by men in Viking costume, who seem to take re-enactment very seriously.
Lost and confused, Linnea finds herself in the power of Hrafn, a Viking warrior who claims her as his thrall and takes her on a treacherous journey across the seas to sell her for profit. Setting sail, she confronts the unthinkable: she has travelled back to the ninth century.
Linnea is determined to find a way back to her own time, but there’s a connection forming with Hrafn. Can she resist the call of the runes and accept her destiny lies here…
This one I received it for a tour I’m in, it was so interesting and I love Vikings and historical adventures.
And I can say this one didn’t disappoint, the background was very well laid out and Linnea was so cool as a heroine really, she felt very strong being a little vulnerable at times as many of us sometimes do, what I liked more about her it’s that she wasn’t hollow, she loved history and studied a lot of it and was good in the topic and admire the things she had.
The plot was very steady on this one, particularly I love to read of far away lands and travels and this one made me imagine so many places and cultures it was awesome.
The romance didn’t felt forced but very organic and that won me very fast since you could feel the tension between her and Hrafn and the time traveling was just a spice on all, it let my mind flew about everything and I enjoyed this one so much, I can’t wait to read Echoes of the runes and whispers of the runes later on.
If you like adventures with a touch of steamy romance you need to read this one asap.
