    The book started well, but once Hakon leaves England his character develops into little than a shallow caricature, his actions and decisions a constant source of irritation, seeming foolish and unrealistic than heroic. I'd hoped this would be a passing phase in Hakon's development, but sadly it continued all the way to the tepid ending. From the description, it appears book two will be of the same. I'll pass.

    Maybe I shouldn't give this first in the series 5 stars, but 4 1/2 isn't an option, and since I am halfway through the second of the series I decided it was time to stop for a moment and write this review. I have read others of this genre and y

    Where to begin? I enjoyed the earliest sections of this book, when Hakon was a youth in Æthelstan's court, but on

    I absolutely adore this book.

    My great grandparents immigrated to America from Norway, so I am familiar with Hakon's story. But Eric Schumacher allowed me to be IN Hakon's story. The author's writing is flawless, as is his at

    Modern Christian values become superimposed on an excellent historical viking story about thirty percent in. One realistic character after another weakened as they became nice. A morality tale made the protagonist, Hakon,

    Great book and historically relevant. Writes a great story that is similar to the greats like Conn, and Bernard that provides true historic insi

    Having only recently developed an interest in the Viking history myself, I was enthralled by this book before I even started to read the first page. I thought there was a strong chance that I would enjoy it, but had no idea quite so

    As a Viking re enactor, I often notice glaring errors in the historical accuracy of books relating to the period my colleagues and I portray, which spoil my enjoyment of the book. Not so with this one!.

    Based on the life of a real person, this tale evokes the complexities of national and international politics and life in tenth century northern Europe.

    It is a book which, had I the time, I might have rea

    This is not a book review just my two pennies worth about my experience.

    I enjoyed the book tremendously and I learned a great deal about our British/Viking history from reading novels like this. My only criticism is

    got this on my kindle paper white,not as full of blood and gore as many of the Viking historical fiction books I have read ,

    This book has the feel of the time in which it is set. There is just enough of the old language to enhance the storey and not too much to detract from the enjoyment in reading or the pace of the tale. Makes me realise how similar to English history other countries were at this time. Men strong in character struggling to survive the
