book is a very fast read, because it keeps the mind of the
reader busy, which is something I am mostly used to, but not
completely. So much happened in such a short time period (basically
about a month of time) it was hard to put the book down, for
fear that something else would magically get into the story
while you (the reader) are sleeping. Because of excellent
writing and comprehension of the vastness of events from various
different places in the world and a timing that had to follow
very closely, Vahalla is a fun read. I must say I have not
read anything else, by Mr. Mrazek, and I really want to get
my hands on other things he’s written, because his mind
and writing ability is a fun participant inside his books.
Ice is a formidable thing to overcome, and lots of ships,
planes and towns have been lost in Ice Flows in that unnavigable
frozen 'desert' of Ice. One night you can find a village,
and 24 hours later, there is no trace, because of an incoming
of a storm and the wind that blows things smooth, the ice
covers everything and soon no trace is left.
World War II a bomber went down somewhere over Greenland.
It was not to be seen or found for over 70 years. A wealthy
man who searches for lost treasure and objects has decided
to try to find that bomber. When it went down, it landed in
a mystic place that was right on top of a ship buried under
500 feet of ice, with nine perfectly preserved crewmen from
the Viking era of Iceland that had been lost "at sea"
since at least the early 1,000's BC era. The leader of the
recovery of the plane is a guy named Steven Macauley, retired
from the Air Force, a group of Ancient Norse researchers and
Rune readers is brought in, among them is Alexandra (Lexy)
Vaughan and several other men who are very proficient in their
knowledge and abilities. Some others are let in on the expedition
that should not be included, because they don't want the truths
that will be found to be known. The revealing of those truths
takes many turns and many lives, and winds up in the coastline
of Maine, and the things that are found can possibly change
everything about our history of America. That is a reason
there has been no acknowledgments of the findings or solidarity
of opinions of the true historical findings. Where and when
did Leif Erickson really DIE, it is a question that has been
asked and not answered for many ages by many historians. We
know that he or his fellow Norwegian's and Icelandic's came
to America, but was the only place visited near Minnesota
or did those explorers go more places and do other things?
This book Valhalla, might give a reader pause to think about
some of that possible history and form answers of their own.
the pace of Mr Mrazek's writing and his genius in putting
a good mystery together... a great combination to have.
