Customer Reviews

This is one of the best of Johanna Lindsey's recent novels that I've read in a long time.
Laurie E. Baker
The problem inherent in both these novels is that it's pretty hard to find a happy ending when the hero and heroine are living lives centuries apart.
K. Hinton
It was well-balanced and had a really good story that kept me interested from beginning to end.

"Until Forever" isn't your typical Johanna Lindsey historical romance. Yes, it does have a medieval cast and crew, but only because the modern-day heroine, a history teacher named Roseleen, travels through time to the Norman Invasion with the help of a cursed Viking sword.

That same sword also comes with a hunky Viking named Thorn, brother to the Norse God Thor, and cursed to serve the woman who possesses the sword. Of course, Roseleen and Thorn's visits to the past screw up history, with some very interesting results. It's definitely a new twist on a JL romance!

This was a fun story. I rather enjoyed the details about the Norman Invasion. I also thought that Roseleen and Thorn had strong personalities and enjoyed their interactions - especially those times when Roseleen had to explain the modern world to Thorn. It was hysterical to see his fear over riding in the car and how fast he destroyed the (moving) kitchen appliances. The shower scene was pretty hot, too.

I had a couple minor objections to the story, which is why is has a 4 rating rather than a 5. For whatever reason, Lindsey stops the story every so often to explain women's liberation or some other inane topic during, say, a love scene. It was so jarring! For another, Thorn has a mortal enemy who appears in the last few pages of the book, and his and Thorn's battle to the death comes across as fluff. Then Lindsey resorts to a silly tactic to make Roseleen appear unattractive, which is to give her glasses she doesn't need (she also does this to Marion in "A Man to Call My Own," which was published later). Either drop the glasses ploy completely or really make the heroine blind (which could be interesting); faking a need for glasses is simply insulting to those who actually have to wear them.

I am a history major and my field of study is medeival history, just like Roseleen's. This was a wonderful book and appealed to me because I have often wondered what it would be like to go back in time to meet William the Conqueror. The book has everything, a handsome hero, a beautiful heroine, and a wonderful story. I definetly recommend this one if you are a fan of Johanna Lindsey!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I feel guilty for giving this book two stars because everyone seemed to have loved it. The problem I had with this book is that the romance is secondary to the story. Thorn had absolutely no personality, he reminded me of "me Thorn, you Roseleen". A barbarian who just wanted to f***. No romance whatsoever. Roseleen was an interesting character but she spent most of her time trying to right the wrongs of the time travel mistakes they encountered. I would to have like to have read more scenes of Thorn and Roseleen getting to know each other, spending time and discovering each other. Too much time spent on a history lesson. (William the Conqueror)

Now what I did love about this book was the ending which made the laborious read worthwhile. I did get goosebumps and was very satisfied. Closed the book with a smile on my face. I do love Johanna Lindsey's work so I always find something I like about it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When prim and proper history professor Roseleen White acquires an ancient Viking sword known as "Blooddrinker's Curse", she has no idea the power that she now holds over a proud and mighty Viking warrior for unbeknownst to her, Thorn Blooddrinker, the sword's owner, is cursed to obey the command of any woman who holds the sword. Soon, she learns that by holding the sword, she can make the Viking appear.

Now Thorn is not too pleased with Roseleen's summoning, as it seems to occur each time he is occupied with other things, such as in the midst of fighting with his brother or partaking in Odin's banquet in Valhalla. Yet Roseleen perplexes him, as unlike the other women who have previously owned his sword, she isn't interested in using his power for any greedy purpose nor is she interested in being his lover. All she seems interested in is getting first hand information about the battle between the Normans and Saxons to assist with her research. So he agrees to travel back in time with her and soon find themselves falling passionately in love.

Until Forever is a cleverly written novel, combining a passionate love story with time travel. It is fun to read and sure to delight romance readers looking for something different. Thorn's fascination with all things modern is fun to read. His curiosity with modern plumbing, electricity and even a lipstick had me laughing. I also liked Roseleen's transformation from a seemingly mousy professor who has been burned in the only relationship she's ever had, to a passionate woman who has hopelessly fallen in love with Thorn. The adventures they share are well described that you get a vivid picture of the scenes and places they're supposed to be at.

Almost all of Mrs. Lindsey books are great, and I won't begin to write a review about each one of them. What made me feel I HAD to say something about this one is the fact that it is very, very different from the others.
Aside from romance books I'm partial to SF books (you may think this a strange combination, I assure you it is not :) ) and it certainly was great to see a love-story combined with a time-travel adventure sooo beautifully. What surprised me most, as I had not expected it, is that Mrs. Lindsay payed very much attention to the time-travel paradoxes and everything fell into place nicely, solved in good old SF style. I had not expected this from a romance-writer, there are certainly many SF writers out there who do not tie up all loose ends and who make mistakes when trying to deal with alternate history lines and the like.
OK, enough about this. Besides, it's not the only good thing about the book. The story is also very funny (the situation of a man from the past thrown into present is always hilarious). I have to confess also that I never knew so many details about the Norman conquest before :).
The ending... well, it lets you understand whatever you want. Mrs. Lindsey wraps it up nicely both for those of us who believe in fantastic adventures and for those who do not. Well, I know for sure which category I fall in...
