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?

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.

A good read however I cannot bring myself to give it 5 stars as it's pure fiction with the story, this genre of book dictates that to enjoy it you have to suspend all belief in fact. It's still an enjoyable series of books for all that.

Enjoyed this book as much as all the previous Wilde/Chase novels.The only thing that I found a little distracting was the constant switching back to eight years previously in every alternate chapter.As it was quite a lengthy book I found I kept losing the threads of the current storyline.
However, the author did fulfil his intentions and create a novel that more than lived up to expectations.

Andy McDermott's Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase thrillers are among my very favourite novels. When one of these books comes out, it goes right to the top of the reading pile and, as with The Valhalla Prophecy, I'll be there at midnight, downloading it to my kindle in its first seconds of existence in the big wide world. The Valhalla Prophecy is the ninth novel in the series and it's been two years since the last. How I've missed them! But it was well worth the wait. This is thriller writing at its very best. If you were to write a recipe to create the perfect thriller and then you followed it precisely (making no short cuts), what you'd get out of the oven would be The Valhalla Prophecy.

This might be a series but it doesn't matter too much if you read this before reading the others or read any of them out of order. Each of the novels presents a self-contained adventure but what you do get if you start at the beginning (2007′s The Hunt for Atlantis) is the huge pleasure of watching the evolution of these two fabulous characters - one Yorkshire (Eddie) and one American (Nina) - as well as the other people who have had such a big impact on their lives (looking with the evil eye at Eddie's ex-wife Sophia, in particular). If you have read the others in the series then you'll appreciate the moments of tenderness (admittedly they don't last long) as Eddie and Nina discuss retiring from their lethal jobs - discovering the world's greatest archaeological mysteries, setting off their revolting booby traps and then saving them from the world's most evil baddies - in order to raise children. But nothing is lost if this is new to you. The back story is filled in, familiar characters are reintroduced and indeed further information is supplied.

If you are reading this as the first of Andy McDermotts books then it's good, fast paced, villains and totally unbelievable. It does kill time on a train or aircraft and for a first time read of his style is ok. However, if you are reading this as book 9 of his style, then just go back and read one of the first few books again and save yourself some money. Bad guys capture Nina, loads of angst between Eddie and Nina, Nina saved and good guys save the world for the 9th time from dodgy villains who have somehow evaded discovery from other crime organisations. I thought it would have all ended happily at book 8, but no there is a tired theme limping along.

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.
