    Series: Viking Vengeance
    Review:

    "Malice Striker" by Jianne Carlo was some 'Viking' romantic tale that once you started reading finding it hard to put down this quick read till the end. I found the story line and written simply good. We find 'Malice Striker" aka Jarl Brokk because he was ordered by the King Bluetooth to marry 'King Kenneth's illegitimate child. Since he doesn't know what she looks like he grabs a lot of women and takes them to Norway. Finding out that one was 'Skatha...he marries her...and from here... this excellent story takes off which follows "the relationship through the dangers presented." This is where the author really works her magic giving the reader such a wonderful good read. A lot of things will come about but will be answered as you read through the novel. We will find the hero and heroine were really something new for the reader in that they weren't .... well I will stop her and let you read it and get the fill of it all from the read. You will not be disappointed because this 'Viking' historical read was a well written engaging story that you will be hooked from the beginning till the end. Be ready for many twist and turns. You will have to keep up because there are many. Now with this good romance and put in some 'Gods and Goddesses' with espionage and downright murder and you will definitely have a novel you will not be able to put down until the very end.

    Oh, I'm in love! This book made me all giddy! It had everything I love, a tall big viking with scars on the outside and inside, a woman with powers she doesn't know yet, her weakness alluring multiple evil characters to benefit from her gift of being born from a Goddess. I enjoyed the fact that she was blind and tried to keep it from her abductors! Worry not that is not a spoiler, we figure in the first few pages that she's blind - and it just makes the story perfect!

    I do have a soft spot for historical romance, especially the viking era ones! Of course they need to be well written to be good, either great writing or very engaging story - well Malice Striker had both! I was hooked from the very beginning to the very end - so many great plot twists and interesting turns of events. I was never bored!

    The romance was exciting, hot and very romantic in the christian lady and barbaric viking way, it was delicious discovering Skatha's passion and fire when he was around and finding Brökk's softer feelings and love for the first time. Now that makes for such great romance! Mix in some Goddesses and Gods for extra flavor and espionage and murder plots and you really cannot but this book down! I couldn't.

    Highly recommending this to all who love Vikings, Romance and True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard. ;)

    I'm not usually one who reads "historical" romances but I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It had enough whimsy to keep it interesting with enough love and spirit to make it so I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed this.

    Talk about "hot Viking!"  




    I really liked how to story developed, as well as the condition Skatha suffered. A very unique story.   Jianne obviously did a lot of research to incorporate fact into this story.   I had trouble at times with the "vernacular" in which the story was written, but it truly speaks to Jianne's talent for being able to maintain that language throughout.




    The love scenes were hot, and I would definitely read more books by Jianne!!!
