This book sucked. I was reading it for a long time while I was trying to keep myself from reading at school so I could be social and I couldn't read it at home because of homework, and I finally got to the end and couldn't understand why I bothered to finish it in the first place. It was well written, but the plot had no substance. All characters were static.
The book was good, but not great. It seemed to end really fast. I think it could have been better if there was more action toward the end and if Hallgerd, Gauk, and Hego could have had more adventures before finding their people. The names made some of it hard to get into.
Interesting historical details, but ultimately unsatisfying.
Good idea and I liked the historical details, but the story lacked depth.
This book is great for people who love folklore and the viking era. It has a little bit of both romance, battle and mystery. I enjoyed the characters that the author displayed, but this book could've been better. At times the words used could be confusing, because they use the language of the people. It wasn't too over done but sometimes it can get confused. Overall, the book was engaging but can be a bore at times.

Overall, I think the book deserved about two stars. It took me a while to get into the story because I was confused on all of the strange names and ideas. Also, many of the words I struggled to even imagine how they would be pronounced, which made the flow of the book much less smooth. I gave it two stars instead of one because it wasn’t consistently lacking description and a understandable word choice. At some points I could visualize the whole scene very well. Overall, the book was okay, jus [...]
At first it was a little difficult to get into because the nordic names and ideas came at me so fast and I wasn't that interested in the bear hunting berserker. But the adventurous tales didn't weigh down the story. It could've used a better romantic tale. But overall it was a really fun story. It would be best for 12 and up. It ended rather abruptly. I wonder if there is a sequel.
This is a great adventure in Viking times. The hero and heroine of the story were engaging and interesting. It had enough detail about locations and daily life that I could imagine my ancestors rowing a boat, or hunting a bear like in the story.
so far the book is kind of weird to me , so i hope it starts getting better or im just going to dump it and read something else.
