When you thought the previous adventures of Nina and Eddie (Atlantis, Garden of Eden, The Tomb of Hercules etc.) couldnt be topped, then this one certainly did the trick. The best of all the adventures Nina and Eddie has undertaken by far! The ending is much of a schocker and did not expect it to happened, but then I remember, Andy McDermott is a master of twisting stories which I like! Throughout the book I was kept on the edge of my chair (literally!) and refused to put the book down! This is Andy McDermott's best book to date! I doubt the next one (Please Please Please, write more adventures of my favourite characters - Nina and Eddie) will be topped after this one!

I received a free copy of The Vahalla Prophecy from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. I've always had an interest in legends, and when I saw the title for this I really wanted to read it. It however was not what I expected, it was more action adventure, then about legends and myths. Action adventure is not something I'm really big on in books. I made myself finish the book because I received it for free, despite that it wasn't all bad.

The Vahalla Prophecy was an action packed read from start to finish. Most of the characters had a strong background in being heroic, including Eddie and Nina. In this story a Norse ruinstone is taken from a museum and Eddie and Nina are beckoned to investigate it. Then are told that the ruinstone could be the key to finding Vahalla. Vahalla where the Vikings predicted the end of the world battle would be. Now the two are racing to find whom stole the artifact before the world is doomed.

What made the novel not for me was that it was the epitome of cliches for the action genre. Even the style of writing was exactly what you'd expect, fast paced and always looking to thrill you. This in not a bad thing for most people, and it doesn't mean the book is bad, this book just isn't for me. For fans of actions and adventure, this book would be great for them.

The part on Viking culture is the main redeeming point for me. As stated before, I'm a big fan of such things. So a bit of the book was educational, and interesting. I even learned a few things I hadn't known before.

Although I've had The Hunt for Atlantis and The Tomb of Hercules loaded up on my Kobo for ages, and have been eagerly anticipating my first adventure alongside Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase, The Valhalla Prophecy is actually my first encounter with the world of Andy McDermott - and I'm pleased to say it definitely won't be my last.

Yes, it's formulaic and predictable, falls prey to pretty much all the clichés of the genre, and belongs to that catastrophic excavation side of archaeology, but that's precisely what we come to enjoy. If you're a fan of Clive Cussler, David Gibbins, Will Adams, Thomas Greanias, Matthew Reilly, and the lot, then Andy McDermott is going to be another author you want to make room for on your shelf.

What sets The Valhalla Prophecy apart and makes it more than just another archaeological, treasure hunting adventure is the depth of the backstory. Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are partners in every sense of the word, both a romantic pairing and professional colleagues. There's chemistry there, personality, and the kind of genuine conflict anybody who has ever been in a long term relationship with recognize. In this volume (their 9th outing) we also get a significant look into Eddie's past, with a mission from the days before becoming the hero we know today, including an earth-shattering secret that threatens to unsettle his marriage when it's revealed.

The use of Norse mythology is both educational and entertaining, with some interesting suggestions as to how those myths sprang to life. There's a definite Dan Brown sort of element to the archaeology there, with each piece of the puzzle leading Nina and Eddie closer to Valhalla itself, but it works.

Just finished THE VALHALLA PROPHECY (The Valhalla Prophecy: A Novel (Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase)). This is the 9th in Andy McDermott's archaeology based series featuring Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase. While it is a good story, it does not come up to the standard of the previous books. Maybe it is the switching between present day events and those of eight years ago. Some times that works, but not always. There are a lot of twists and turns, and the action, as always, comes at break-neck speed, sometimes with mind-boggling intensity. Overall, not a bad story, just not as good as the previous ones. This one rates about 3.5 stars.

I’ve always enjoyed McDermott’s thrillers and this latest, The Valhalla Prophecy, was no exception. As usual, the action is almost non-stop, the pacing relentless. However, I’m not a big fan of flashbacks and this story relied heavily on that. At least, the author (or publisher) didn’t format those long chapters in italics, so I was glad for that. I must also note that though they were flashbacks, they still had plenty of action.

The premise was also a unique twist on the Valhalla legend. I don’t know diddly about the “true” legends so from that perspective, I couldn’t call fowl on any of his research. I had a great time and took it all at face value. It’s not like I’m going to accept his facts as historically accurate anyway. I never do in these type novels. I take all this stuff with a grain of salt and leave those that care to fret over those details. If I happen to know something is way off, I may say something but…

Anyway, I had a great time reading it though I wish the chapters and/or scenes were a bit shorter so it would’ve been easier to read during commercials. The solid third-person kept things on track with minimal to no noticeable head-hopping.

My only beef may be a setup for something further and that’s something that happened to one of the major characters at the end. I hope it doesn’t spell doom for the series. We’ll see.

Overall, a fun read and I look forward to the next one. Highly recommended.
