My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another wonderful instalment to this series. I loved the storyline and the author definitely kept me hooked form beginning to end. I was completely engaged with the mystery I the story and really did feel like I was right there with the characters at times. The authors imagination really shines through in this book and her attention to detail make it a very exciting book to read. The characters Ketil and Sigrid are great characters to read about and I am excited for more from them in the future!
This was a great read and one that I would highly recommend.

This fourth book in the Orkneyinga Murder series is just as intriguing as the earlier books in the series. The two main characters Ketil and Sigrid are well written characters who always seem to be in the right place at the wrong time getting sucked into finding out the reason for murder. The depth of the descriptions of the area along with the well written characters make the story one that I had a hard time putting down. I will be checking out more books by this talented author.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book in the Orkneyinga Murders series. It also happens to be the first book I’ve read by this author. The book combined two genres that I like to read – historical fiction and a murder mystery! In the beginning it took me a while to figure out the characters and how they got along with the others. The story is so engrossing that I wanted to keep reading as long as possible each night. The characters in the story were well written and I loved the parts where I felt like I was learning more about the Viking way of life.

Someone is killing the Adrjssian royal family one by one. When the queen is pushed to her death, suspicion lands on 17-year-old Adrijana Mironacht, a village girl new to court. Determined to clear her name, Adrijana enlists the aid of the compelling and enigmatic Dragan Vulpe, one of the royal Mesmers—magicians with the ability to read and manipulate the thoughts and emotions of those around them.
As the royal body count grows and the hostile Vruk army gathers at the border, ready to capitalize on Adrjssian instability, Adrijana homes in on the Vruk ambassadors as the most likely suspects. But when she uncovers evidence of Mesmer help, she begins to second-guess both her instincts and the loyalties of those around her. Tangled in a web of half-truths and pretty lies, it will take all of Adrijana’s cunning to unmask the true killer.
From the author of the Confectioner Chronicles comes a stand-alone young adult fantasy mystery set in a seductive new world of glittering magic, shadowed secrets, and deadly intrigue.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While this is a brand new author to me this is one of the most fascinating books that I have read this year. But this thrilling new mystery series isn’t any normal series its all based around vikings, how exciting does that sound? While the plot was facinating, the characters where phenomenal, I did find myself occasionally mixing up the characters as so many of them had similar names. But overall this writer did an incredible job. Our main character comes back after a long disappearance only to suddenly find himself surrounded by murders. But what happens when he suffers wounds while trying to solve these murders? Will he survive and figure out who is behind all of these murders? You’ll have to read this mystery to find out for yourself.

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders Book 4) by Lexie Conyngham – Review by Allyson Ware

I said this before about the first book in this series, but the author does an immaculate job of world-building and character development. There is a coziness to these novels that I cannot shake (as much as I want to). Regardless of the plot being a murder mystery, anyway.

Mysteries are difficult to find surprise in, at least in my personal experience. But, this novel surprised me a few different times. I won’t spoil the surprises here, but you will find them I assure you. If you are a murder mystery fan, this series will not disappoint you.

Tomb for an Eagle (Orkneyinga Murders Book 1) by Lexie Conyngham – Review by Allyson Ware

One of my first thoughts about this book was that it is cozy. Yes, there is a dead body found in a gully, but the way the author writes makes me want to curl up with a blanket and a cup of tea on a rainy day and read.

This novel has a few different perspectives, which I have come to love from this author. The characters are explained in great detail, along with the world the author has created. You really understand what is happening and the only questions you are asking are the typical questions in a murder mystery. This author really does not leave much to the imagination when it comes to details and I definitely appreciate that. If you have not read this book and love mysteries, this is definitely a novel for you.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Bear at Midnight (Orkneyinga Murders Book 4) by Lexie Conyngham. This is the 4th book in the series and I recommend reading them in order to get the best experience. This is a historical mystery that will keep you guessing all the way through. When the local handyman is murdered his family is only worried about who gets the business and his possessions. Sigrid and Ketil are working as hard as they can to find out who the murderer is before more bodies begin to pile up. This author’s writing is so beautiful and moving I feel as if I am in the book in Scotland with the Vikings. Sigrid and Ketil must work around the clock because more murders are happening and they don’t want any more murders on their watch. In the midst of all of the murders, feelings are flowing around between Sigrid and Ketil, it’s obvious they are a match made in Heaven but they haven’t figured it out yet. This book could be read as a standalone but is much better reading them all.

This is a one-of-a kind book. I have never read a historical mystery set in the time of the Vikings. The plot was orginal. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat wanting to keep reading to see what would happen next. The characters were unique and engaging. I found their personalities something that kept me into the story. this was a fantastic story and I loved it. I’m looking forward to reading more in this series. Highly recommend.
