4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Dark Thriller June 30 2012
By Lili - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"On a treacherous search across two continents, the paths of three strangers cross to uncover the oldest story on Earth and the best kept secret of all times"

This book is an exciting, dark and violent thriller, full of surprises and shocks, a story which makes you think, a story that makes you believe and then later dis-believe. A book I found hard to put down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Norse God, Mankind and the Mob April 7 2012
By NLE - Published on
Format: Paperback
Asgard Park
A truly dark tale about a Nordic god named Heimðallr. "Heimðallr, the god who was born of nine mothers (the waves of the sea), is said to have been the father of all the castes of humankind." (thank you Wiki!!). It wouldn't hurt to read a bit about him before you start this book. It makes things a little clearer.
Birger Wallenberg is taking over the Asgard Park Institute. - an institution for the mentally ill. Originally from Copenhagen; he has been selected from many applicants to head the Research Department. He already has great plans to use his position to prove some of his own theories. One thing they forgot to mention: the retiring Director, Dr. Karl Leamas, lives there. He built it so why not? Why not is an easy answer. The man is everywhere, into everything and possibly (probably) a tad deluded. He keeps speaking of Heimdallr and encourages Birger to open his senses to him. He says Birger is the chosen one to carry on Heimdallr's work in the world.
Meanwhile, across the ocean in Albania, two young girls of opposite dispositions are arguing about sex. One is experienced, a whore even and the other is pure, chaste and relies on her brother to keep her safe. The Kid (aka Rakipe) is world-wise, loud, brash and lonely. Shequere Avhiu a widow whose husband hung himself from a sewer pipe. Her brother, Spiro, deals in any and everything dealable and does pretty well for himself.
The back and forth in this book between a world of poverty and an institution of insanity keeps you hopping. I have to admit that it wasn't something I was thrilled with but overall it was a good tale. Not what I thought it would be about at all and that's all I'm gonna say about it. I'm sure it will be perfect for most folks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Need to Read May 11 2012
By My Book Addiction and More - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a very good book that you need to read. Once you pick it up it is hard to put down. A very good spy thriller with a twist. If you are a nonbeliever or a believer it makes you think at the end "Is God real?".

5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating but odd thriller April 23 2012
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
In June 1991, psychologist Dr. Birger Wallenberg flies from Copenhagen to New York to become the Director of Research at Asgard Park Mental Institution. He has no idea why him as his experience is limited and he only applied because a friend nagged him to do so.

Birger replaces retiring Dr. Karl Leamas who will still reside at the Westchester County facility. Upon arrival, chief psychiatrist Dr. George Kennan informs him a patient Haakon Beale left the place last night and killed two men. Soon after his auspicious welcoming, he finds Birger everywhere as the older man encourages the newcomer to embrace the Nordic God Heimdallr as the chosen one.

In Albania, Rakipe "The Kid" whore argues with widow Shequere Avhiu over the value of sex. Rakipe relies on herself to survive while Shequere, whose late husband committed suicide, depends on her dealing brother Spiro. Soon they will find a connection to a bewildered European doctor in New York who learned Leamas funded the protection of the chosen children of Heimdallr.

This is a fascinating but odd thriller that is not an easy read as the storyline predominantly rotates between Westchester and Albania, but their link comes later so readers who remain patient will relish learning the secret behind what is going on. While, the key players are fully developed so that the audience understands what motivates each of them. Fans will appreciate this strange yet engaging modernization of Heimdallr the Nordic Watchman who never sleeps.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow Start, too much jumping around April 30 2012
By Mitzi L Gentry - Published on
Format: Paperback
I did not enjoy this book. It had a really slow start and there was too much jumping around for me to keep up with the story. I gave it my 100 page try but couldn't finish.
