Baltic Mist by Jennifer Lohr is the first book of a trilogy. It is based in the times and land of the Vikings but after they had given up their old Gods for Christianity. The book is written from the perspective of farm girl called Helga.
I was drawn to this book as I love anything about Vikings. I was not dissapointed and I could not put it down. It is well researched, engaging and even eductional, I would say. I learnt a lot of things about the various Norse customs. The characters were well developed with different dimensions to them. The action and adventure was totally gripping. Different themes are explored such as politics, beliefs (old and new) romance. The plot was great and the dialogue well written, as was the narrative. It's a shame it wasn't longer. I can't wait to read the next part.
I definitely recommend this book. Just buy it. You won't regret it.
