REVIEW: Hidden in the Mists

I really enjoy time slip stories, the mix of historical fiction with fantasy, when done right can just be enchanting. I really enjoyed Courtenay’s Tempted by the Runes where we see a character slip back to Viking times a la Outlander style. This story gives us a different kind of historical romance, one of a love that spans the ages. Skye and Rafe live in modern day Scotland and Ottar and Asta in the ancient lands of the Vikings. Each are living in uncertain times and find one another to lean on… and find they quite fancy one another.

We get a good bit of Viking culture and from several unusual points of view, that of a usurper, the daughter of a fallen jarl and a thrall. I enjoyed that half quite a bit more than the modern one but I did like the aspect of history echoing throughout the ages

Thanks to Headline via Netgalley for advanced access to this novel. All opinions above are my own.

If you could slip into another time for a few months, what time would you choose?
