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

A great read about mystery In the Viking era, Sigrid’s day is ruined when she finds the buried body of a man in a nearby gully to her farm. While visiting the area, Ketil realises he knows the man as a warrior and messenger to the Thorfinn kingdom. Together, Sigrid and Ketil investigate a whole town of suspects. But can they find the killer before it’s too late?
A brillaint read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Sigrid doing what she loves and standing up for herself or Ketil trying to find the truth and fit in to the community. I also liked how he was the damsel in distress needing saving for humour which was brilliantly written.
Also loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the island in the fog with rocky crags and harsh weather which was perfectly written with air of mystery and magic as something of the ancient world harsh and unforgiving
And the sense of history with Viking warriors and ships and culture and food halls as if you were actually there.
Brillaint mix of crime thriller and historical with suspense and fast paced action for a captivating read. Overall, a brilliant read and I would give it five stars
