*From John Charles, ReaderToReader.com about Valhalla
"With Valhalla, Mrazek begins a new series that delivers all the elements thriller fans crave. The novel’s plot is not only packed with jaw-dropping twists and turns as well as plenty of action, adventure and requisite dash of romance, the author also manages to include some fascinating historical details about Leif Erickson and the Vikings into the story.
Fans of Clive Cusslers’ and James Rollins’ books or readers who enjoy Steve Berry’s history-fueled suspense novels will definitely want to add Mrazek to their must-read lists."

* From Penguin Random House about Valhalla
The discovery will change history.
Far beneath the Greenland ice cap, an expedition team searching for a lost World War II bomber makes an astounding discovery. Encased in the ice five hundred feet beneath the plane is the wreckage of an ancient ship—and nine perfectly preserved Viking crewmen. Rune markings reveal it to be more than a thousand years old.
The secret is unimaginable.
Expedition leader Steven Macaulay, a retired air force officer, assembles a team of the world’s foremost Norse archeologists to decipher the puzzle, including Harvard academic Alexandra “Lexy” Vaughan. But their mission is violently sabotaged—because the discovery holds the key to a plot that will change the human race.
The implications are staggering.
Stranded on a vast landscape of ice, wind and unendurable cold, Macaulay and Lexy are plunged headlong into a web of chaos and betrayal at the highest levels of world government — all the while hunted by a covert international society that will stop at nothing to protect its quest for world domination.
