Publisher's Summary

In remote, icy Greenland, ex-Air Force General Steven Macaulay helps lead an expedition to recover a lost World War II plane. Encased in ice below is a find that will astonish the world - a perfectly-preserved Viking ship, buried for nearly a thousand years, along with the frozen corpses of nine crewmen. Assembling the foremost Viking scholars, Macaulay tasks the gorgeous Lexy Vaughan to translate the ship’s markings - until her work is cut short when her colleagues are murdered. Stranded on a vast landscape of ice, wind and unbearable cold, Lexy and Macaulay are hunted by a secret cult that will go to the end of the earth to hatch an ancient plot of death and world domination.

Still can't get my head around it...

This book started with such promise, that I thought I'd settle into a good listen. Unfortunately the author's ability to craft a believable plot doesn't measure up to his writing ability. Very well written, but the plot is just to unbelievable for me. I can get into good sci-fi, mystery and even spy novels, but not Norse cults of Oden that secretly have members at the seats of power, even within the FBI. Sorry, this one is just too far fetched !

Bring an extra sweater when you listen to this one

If you could sum up Valhalla in three words, what would they be?


What did you like best about this story?

The parallel stories, wrapping history of Vikings, the Final Solution, archeology, and White House intrigue. It sounds messy, but it moves along intelligently and quickly.

Have you listened to any of Christopher Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't recall any, but I will definitely from here on out. Quite simply this is a stunning performance by a true professional. He has to work a variety of intense characters, with a wide range of accents, and he does so with clarity and precision. I can't give him high enough remarks. Certainly now in my personal hall of fame.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me research Viking history, which was somewhat moving.

Any additional comments?

This book snuck up on me, and by the end of the story it had me wrapped up totally. Lanes' performance brings it to life, and the total package is very compelling. Most highly recommended.
