WE ARE FAMILY.
…got all my sisters [and brother] with me!
This book was so good! The Vikings essence of it was what originally drew me to this book and it didn’t disappoint. It was the first one I’ve happened to come across about Vikings that was written beautifully.
There was a big focus on blood and family being first. Eeyln dealing with her brother’s betrayal forces her to see the big picture. Does her hate for the Riki really outweigh the fact her brother is alive?
The fact that it isn’t a ‘love at first sight’ kind of concept was FANTASTIC. I love bitter angst between characters before they come together. And a well written [tasteful] love scene…*SWOON*.
Eeyln’s character really evolves through the book. She loses herself and finds that fire within her to gain it back as the final battle descends. Fiske, Inge, Halvard and every Iri help her gain what she’s been missing. Her family and peace.
No language, some kissing and one love scene [written appropriately for younger audiences]. Clearly, lots of throat slashing, arrows hitting their mark, and sword stabbing, because Vikings.
Thank you so much to Netgalley and the publisher, Wednesday Books, for the digital ARC!
