Intense and enjoyable

Valhalla Rising is full of plot twists and action. Whilst it might be more predicable than other books within the Dirk Pitt series, it is extremely enjoyable - Cussler doesn't just write action, he writes the book on action.
The opening sub-plot is fantastic as well, because as we all know that as well as writing fantastic action, Cussler also writes - or rather re-writes history - with both an eye for details, as well as a vivid imagination. Since I read this book, I keep seeing more and more references to the Vikings discovering America - they do say that artists use lies to tell the truth.
