Can’t Wait Wednesday : Council (Helga Finnsdottir #2) by Snorri Kristjansson

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : Council (Helga Finnsdottir #2) by Snorri Kristjansson.  This is the second book in the series, I really enjoyed the first book, Kin and my review is here.  Vikings and murder mystery – sign me up for that please

CouncilAfter five years on the road, Helga has finally settled near King Eirik’s court in Uppsala, where she’s well-regarded as a healer. She’s even in a relationship, of sorts.

But life is about to get a bit more exciting, for King Eirik has summoned all those who owe him fealty to the King’s Council and tempers are already flaring. The body of an unknown boy is found near the river, but with delegations from all over the country arriving and rumours of an imminent attack, there are more important things to attend to than the death of a nobody . . .

Only Helga suspects murder, until a second body makes it clear that someone is intent on breaking up the King’s Council – and that a traitor walks among them . .

    Vikings and murder mystery – what a combo. Don’t think I’ve read any viking books before. Hope you enjoy this one as much as the first.

    Oh cool. I never got to read the first book, so I have some catching up to do! This series sounds so unique😁

      It really is unique, vikings and murder mystery – it’s not a traditional style mystery but I really enjoyed the first.

    Oh, I remember your review of the first book and how differently intriguing I thought it was! Now, where to find the time to read that one as well? 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – yes, I know exactly what you mean, so little time…
