Kol is a warrior with the power to protect the dead continuing to live even though his wife and mother are long dead. He seeks revenge for their death but hasn’t be able to get his revenge until he sends his mark into the world. Little did he know that TJ would be the one to receive his mark. It’s thanks to TJ that Kol isn’t as focused on getting his revenge he’s finding that he has feelings he thought long dead.
TJ is on the hunt for the one who killed her parents drawn to Woodland Creek with a case of grave robbing. It’s while in town that TJ encounters Kol but there is more to him than just the handsome guy who is infuriating. With her marked for death the only one who can save her is Kol but will he help her or will he get the revenge he so desperately wants?
I like both Kol and TJ they both have issues it’s no surprise with everything they have had to deal with. However, things work with them they complement each other even if they just don’t know it yet. What Kol thought was right just happens to be wrong and that TJ is exactly what he needs. I like the chemistry between the two it’s steamy but sweet.
I’ve been working my way through the Woodland Creek series since it’s quickly become one of my favorites series. This isn’t your typical kind of shifter story but add in some Norse mythology and you’ve got a unique spin on the shifter concept. While Kol is a shifter his shift isn’t the typical animal you would expect at all and I like it. The Viking’s Curse is a unique captivating novel that captured my heart as well as my imagination. I loved the characters I found the easy to connect with and I loved how they work together. The author’s writing style is beautiful it flows along creating a beautifully created story. This is my first novel by the author but I can’t wait to check out more books. I high recommend this series.
