What’s a Viking to do when he ends up on a Florida beach, surrounded by a world he doesn’t understand, with a hyperactive stockbroker as his only guide? Go back to Chase’s hotel, naturally. Chase thinks Bjorn is eccentric at best, a lunatic at worst, or just maybe the real thing: a Viking from the days of yore. It isn’t easy for Bjorn to admit, but he needs Chase’s help to navigate the confusing modern age. While Chase is trying to clean Bjorn up and help him fit in, Bjorn’s sworn enemy also makes the trek through time. Jorund is eager to plunder this new land and finish the job of killing Bjorn’s family line, all in one blow. Bjorn and Chase will have to set aside their vast differences and work together if either of them wants to survive.
This was a nice quick read. Bjorn and Chase are both greatly confused when they meet on the beach. Both try to find explanations in their own minds of how or why the other is acting so strange.
Both of these characters are wonderful. Both would be considered work-a-holics in their own times, but soon realize that life is worth more than that. I loved how both of these characters interacted with each other and how scared Chase was that Bjorn would disappear just like Jorund did. Seeing these characters together in the future was a wonderful ending.
Cover art by Paul Richmond is nice and catches your eye.
