Tomb for an Eagle (Orkneyinga Murders, #1)Tomb for an Eagle by Lexie Conyngham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tomb for an Eagle is the first book in Lexie Conyngham’s Orkneyinga Murders series. The book is a historical work of fiction, set in the Viking era, that is a tale of murder and suspense. Sigrid’s day can’t get any worse when she stumbles upon a dead body, that appears to be a messenger for Thorfinn. Thrown into an intense game of ‘who did it’ Sigrid and her best friend Ketil, must solve the murder before it’s too late.
This was my first ever historical read that focused on Scottish and Norse history. I found the plot very captivating, as I tried to guess who the killer was. The story was full of twists and turns, that had me second guessing every character until the very end. I really liked Sigrid as the main character; she was incredibly loyal to Ketil, and fiercely independent. I really loved the way the story was wrote, it beautifully captivated the setting of the Scottish Isles, as well as the time era it was set in. I thought the research that went in to this story was incredible, as all the small details really added to the story and the experience of reading it.
I really enjoyed this first book by Lexie Conyngham and gave it a 4/5-star rating
