Book Description

16 Jan 2014 Wilde/Chase
The ultimate duo - Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase - return in their ninth action-packed adventure.

Secrets from the past emerge to threaten archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband, former SAS soldier Eddie Chase, when a Viking runestone is stolen by a murderous gang of raiders. The stone holds the key to an ancient evil concealed in one of Norse mythology's holiest places: Valhalla.

Travelling to Sweden, Eddie and Nina find themselves in a race against time to locate the legendary hall of the Viking warriors - before rival powers claim its deadly contents for themselves. It is a quest that will force Eddie to revisit a dark chapter from his mercenary days that he has kept hidden from everyone...including his wife.

Only Nina and Eddie can prevent the unleashing of a primordial terror from the depths of the earth. But even if they succeed, will the cost be greater than either of them could have ever imagined...

More About the Author

Andy McDermott is the bestselling author of the Nina Wilde/Eddie Chase series of adventure thrillers, which have been sold in over 30 countries and 20 languages. His debut novel, The Hunt For Atlantis, was published in the UK in 2008; on its US publication the following year it became his first of several New York Times bestsellers. He is also the author of the explosive spy thriller The Persona Protocol, and the first in a planned series of short stories about celebrity sleuth Leviticus Gold.

His eleventh novel, the Wilde/Chase adventure Kingdom Of Darkness, goes on sale in August 2014, and he is currently working on the next book in the series.

Andy's novels have received critical acclaim for their epic globetrotting scope and non-stop thrills, described as "pulse-racing adventure" (Northern Echo) with action scenes that "explode off the page" (Daily Express), while Andy himself has been called "a new master of the genre" (Le Figaro) and "a writer of rare cinematic talent" (Daily Express).

A former journalist and movie critic, Andy was the editor of respected UK magazines like DVD Review and the iconoclastic film publication Hotdog. He is now a full-time author. Born in Halifax, he now lives in Bournemouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does it go from here? 26 Jan 2014
By Trevor
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This, the ninth in the Nina & Eddie, maintains the fast-paced, high-quality story telling we have come to expect from Andy McDermott. He has taken a slightly different path this time with, essentially, two stories in parallel separated by eight years. All the usual ingredients are there the course humour from Eddie, the slightly exasperated reactions of Nina and, of course, the good-natured bickering. The twist in the tale was a bit left field, especially after everything the couple has gone through since The Hunt for Atlantis. I can't wait for the tenth instalment to find out how Mr McDermott fixes the conundrum he has set up. And, as usual, I come away from the story wishing some Hollywood hot-shot would pick up on these highly cinematic stories and give us a thrilling franchise of adventure films. Jason Statham as Eddie and Alyson Hannigan as Nina, anyone?

4.0 out of 5 stars A halla-va read. 2 Aug 2014
By J. Wise
IT can’t be a coincidence that McDermott’s ever-active couple Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are in Viking country for his latest book. Norsemen are flavour of the year and providing plenty of nervous tension, not least the passing of Ragnarok, their version of the end of days which, looking at the state of world affairs at the moment, might not be far off the mark.

Turn to the first page and throw yourself into a Usain Bolt-paced piece of action, humour and suspense as the pair chase a stolen stone that has earth-shattering powers. To add to the spice there’s an eight-year-old back story that brings ex-SAS man Eddie into a new, dark light. And since it involves a woman sparks mayhem with the missus. All this while crossing the globe to all points of the compass, not least, of course, Norway in the hunt for the Hall of the Slain.

Throw in the obligatory twist at the end and your page-turning fingers are itching for the next book. Don’t go looking for The Valhalla Prophecy on the Booker Prize long list. It’s not one for book nerds, it’s quite simply an out-and-out, full-blooded chunk of wholesome adventure. Jewell of the Nile type stuff. You’ll love every word.

A Mcdermott's novel feels empty without the presence of Eddie and Nina. The characters are full of life, zest and sparkle. They are compactable as a couple. The characters are well brought to life for amusing readers and to admire the close bonding. The Valhalla Prophecy is another exciting and thrilling adventure featuring the daring duo. It is the ninth adventure story featuring the characters. The pace is so fast. The story-telling is enthralling from the moment it starts. The archaeological theme plays a key role in the plot. It is about old myths featuring Vikings that hold the key to new discoveries. The new archaeological treasures can be deadly and dangerous if found in the wrong hands. The duo faces new villains, who will use whatever means to steal. The story runs in parallel. It takes us on a journey of Eddie's past as a soldier in Vietenam. If you are into high octane adventures, I would recommend Andy Mcdermott's lastest offering. Valhalla Prophecy to date is one of author best pieces. I am curious where the story will head, as he is never short of ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to the same high standard! 4 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Andy McDermott's books and have been waiting to read this one for a while, so it is great to say I am not disappointed! Plenty of zippy international action, characters I can care about, yet more different modes of transport (sometimes I have to Google them to check if they are real - they always are), thoroughly researched myths and legends that create a solid back story which is then extended brilliantly to new possibilities. This was a perfect holiday read, the only problem being that as I had plenty of time for reading on the beach, the book was over too soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent read from McDermott 4 Aug 2014
By Willis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Wilde/Chase series is like reading a film, I couldn't put it down. Knowing what these books are like I had to stop myself from reading it so I could take it on holiday and read without any "normal life interruptions", it didn't fail.
I love the Yorkshire references thrown in with the American blockbuster action, hailing from God's own county myself.

When I win the lottery I am going to fund the transition to film! Can't believe they haven't been made into films - James Bond meets Indiana Jones with a hint of Emmerdale!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Eddie & Nina episode 2 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
As usual fast paced and entertaining but you can start predicting when the chases and shootouts are going to kick in. Didn't like the 2 parallel stories during the first half, as it broke the pace of both stories. With the Atlantis arc apparently resolved in the previous book, the rather downbeat ending here opens up new avenues to take Eddie and Nina down

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun as always 1 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As you'd expect from the series. Suspend your beliefs & get stuck in! A few preposterous scenarios & lots of action. I think everyone should read an Andy mc Dermott book or two; life's too serious & these are great page turners, just don't read the series back to back or you'll be reduced to a gibbering idiot : )
