Bitter Betrayal takes the reader on an adventure throughout the homelands of the Vikings. Luke Wilkins is a scientist who loves history, especially Viking history. He comes to have a special Viking ring in his possession that causes him a great deal of concern and problems. He and his team, including his little boy, are just trying to find history and truth along with the legends surrounding this ring.
Unfortunately, he is impeded at every turn by his worst enemy and his henchmen. I say henchmen because they really were the classic bad guys out to get Luke and his team, solely it seems, due to Lee's hatred of Luke.
This is a novella split into two parts in this collection, and it does leave off on a cliff hanger. I am intrigued by this mystery, especially the ancient Viking part. This was an interesting tale and my interest is piqued for the next installment. I just hope Luke and his team can get ahead of those trying to stop them no matter the cost.
I was provided a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

More from Rebecca
This book was so much fun to write. There are so many places in this world that have been barely touched by man. I took an interest in Northern Canadian culture after watching a documentary about how the Vikings first settled there.
After reading through the different artifacts that have been found there, Bitter Betrayal was born. I knew this would make a tremendous mystery-suspense story. Whenever I start a Mystery Suspense book, I usually like to add a dash of romance with a historical twist.
Luke Wilkins is someone that most single dads can relate to. He has a difficult time trusting other people. Especially when it comes to his son, Adam. He must trust those around him if he’s going to stay alive.
Bitter Betrayal teeters on the concept of how far someone would go for what they want. If you love Clive Cussler as much as I do, then this Novella is for you.
