    This story is very compelling I was hooked from the very first page The book is written from Kol's point of view I thought the author did a good job keeping the overall historical timeline for the Viking era and seamlessly integrated family culture the settings the characters' lives on the farms and religion without the

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book It's suitable as an introduction to the subject but also for someone like me who has spent time studying Scandinavian myths and sagas I won't speak for scholars D It's not a perfect book but it is one I will keep and treasure because it's a story rarely told We know that non heterosexual people have lived throug

Eligion is sweeping through them and King Olaf Tryggvason is hunting down and executing sorcerers When a decades old feud forces Thorbrand to choose between Kol and his duty to his kinsman Kol finds himself cast adrift with only the cryptic messages of an ancient goddess to guide him to his destiny and possibly to his deat. I have to admit that when I saw this novel and read the name I thought I was in for a very boring book But after reading the first pages I knew I had made a big mistake I judged a book by its cover Seidman stars Kol Now Kol is a little farm boy that never seemed to fit in with his family His dad found him weak and his brother hated him for being weak But one day he meets Alfdis a powerful sorceress and his life completely changesI don t want to give the story away but this novel takes place during the Viking Age So you might find the names of several persons places and things a little bit confusing What I loved about this novel was the paranormal element in it I found the goddesses gods and spirits fascinating and thrillingI absolutely loved Kol He was like the Viking Harry Potter of his era He was very shy but incredibly brave Even when death was staring him in the face he stood stall and strong I loved Thorbrand There was something in him that I loved Maybe it was the way he was so overprotected of Kol He won my heart completely and the ending was very thrilling and exciting especially the final battleI recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for a very entertaining and historical book depicting young love magic and adventure Trust me you will not be disappointed

This was a great YA title for a lot of reasons1 It isn t simplistic and it doesn t talk down to younger readers the way some YA titles do Nothing pisses me off worse than when I read a book and I feel like the author felt like it was good enough for YA A lot of the the mainstream YA books totally feel like that to me like the author doesn t think YA readers will notice the plot holes the flat characterization etc Well they do This book on the other hand feels like it was given all the attention and dedication it would have been had it been written for adults Which it could have been I m 26 and there s plenty for adults to enjoy2 There s a plot beyond the romance And a good one It s very fast paced and plenty of action which I like a lot Parts of it read like a good action movie I especially liked the sea battles You feel a lot of tension during the battle scenes The emotion the characters experience is balanced well with the I guess the logistics of the fighting3 And this might be the best part The author cleverly weaves a variety of personal social and religious issues into the fast paced main plot It never feels preachy or overbearing though Its done as a part of the characters and their world like what it s like to be small in a society that values brute strength and how you deal with that Even though it takes place in a fantasy historical setting I could really relate to Kol and not just because he was gay because he was different and not really his society s ideal I like how religion is discussed without mostly bias There s a lot going on beneath the surface something not all YA authors bother with see 14 The relationship really feels like two 12 year old boys They wrestle and insult each other and there s very little mushiness But still by the end a real sense of their loyalty to each other5 It felt very well researched I m not an expert and I probably will not know if something isn t accurate but at least it wasn t Viking stereotypesThis is a great book and it should be read not only by gay young men but just by kids who feel like they don t fit in I wish there had been stuff like this when I was a teenager
