New Review: Violetta Rand’s BLIND MERCY – Another Fast-Paced Viking Tale!
Tyr, a powerful half-English jarl, wants to recoup his losses from the failed invasion and so takes Rachelle back to Norway thinking to ransom her, but his passion for the English girl leads him in another direction. Tyr has his enemies, however, and soon the bastard son of the fallen Norwegian king decides to claim Rachelle as his own. All of which leads to an exciting finish.
This is a novel that takes you to the very end of the Viking Era. Rand writes very well and the story is quite entertaining. As with Rand’s first novel, BLIND ALLEGIANCE, at times the story seems a bit modern in the choice of some words and phrases and the behavior of the heroine. And, of course, they didn’t use surnames in the 11th century. But the story will nevertheless hold your interest. If you ever wondered what happened to the Vikings, this will answer that question!
