Lachlan tackles a huge project in this book and the result is a strange and interesting tale. While the start of the book was less than stellar, plauged by flat characters and relationships which felt forced, once the adventure picks up Lachlan does a great job of holding the reader's interest. The story is set mostly in Viking Age Scandinavia. Lachlan shows that a lot of research went into this work, and also takes a great deal of artistic freedom (Viking Age students and scholars should keep in mind that despite the obvious research put into this, Lachlan ultimately wrote a fantasy story). In many ways this story is very unpredictable; while the plot goes exactly where one expects it to, the manner of its arrival is where Lachlan excels. All in all, I certainly recomend this book, even if you don't plan to stick with the series. This novel can be read alone, and is interesting enough to at least have a small taste of.
