    I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but this was a very interesting and well written work of historical fiction...I'm hoping this is the fist of a series. I highly recommend this for those who love historical fiction

    fair writing, fair connection to history

    Interesting story, some connection to history which was interesting in itself. Points were very violent and gross.

    Wonderful Surprise

    Bernard Cornwell is the best at this type of historical fiction but Corbett unlike many others has written about this time period in a voice that is his own. I especially love his in depth, sophisticated description of military tactics. At a cost of $3.99 for the nook book this story is a bargain. My only criticism is that he needs a better editor. The order of words is sometimes confusing.

    Fast paced historical adventure. While somewhat simplistic, the story is exciting and brings life to an area of history not often explored.

    Not great but not bad either

    This is an easy read and overall an okay book with potential if it was a draft. The dialogue isn't that great, descriptions are basic, and details are missing. I would recommend this for a teenager over an adult - I would say this is easy enough for an older (10+) child to read, but the sexual content is a bit much for this age.

    Loved this historical novel

    Really enjoyed this historical novel. Believable plot and well developed characters put me into the story caring about the main character and how his life went on after being captured by Vikings at an early age. There are more in the series and will be picking them up to read. Highly recommend for all ages.
