Publisher's Write-Up

Valhalla - As everyone knows, when great warriors die their reward is eternal life in Odin's bijou little residence known as Valhalla.

But Valhalla has changed. It has grown. It has diversified. Just like any corporation, the Valhalla Group has had to adapt to survive.

Unfortunately, not even an omniscient Norse god could have prepared Valhalla for the arrival of Carol Kortright, one-time cocktail waitress, last seen dead, and not at all happy.

Valhalla is the sparkling new comic fantasy from a writer who can turn misery into joy, darkness into light, and water into a very pleasant lime cordial.

Well, I'm afraid to say it, but this was another let down from Tom Holt. I'm a great fan and get every book as soon as it comes out but even so I finished this one with a feeling of disappointment, much as I did the last.

The story doesn't seem to do anything. I couldn't get interested in the main characters or plot (what little there was!) as it just seems to ramble on without point.

I think Tom Holt should consider his next novel instead of just publishing at regular intervals and provide a vintage story that he is more than capable of. Disappointing
