Interesting alternate history. What if the Norse were the first permanent European settlers in the Americas? An interesting beginning story with many future possibilities. Good story line and character development. A good read. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

A worthwhile read. Contains dramatic violence for that fanbase and calming romance for others. Has an appealing finish that leaves room for more of the saga. Robert Frost

But at least the female characters are human.

It had potential, but it never developed.

A great opening! This series can pretty much go anywhere.  Norse, rival halls, lands already claimed! I'm looking forward to watching this unfold.

This book has an interesting thesis--the founding of a Norse society in the New World. A bit slow to start but I can see great things to come.

I enjoyed reading this. I generally like alternate history stories, and this one was done pretty well. I really liked the premise of the Norse in America. The narrative was well paced and there weren't just too many characters involved that it was difficult to keep track of who was who. It did seem like there should have been more interactions between the Norse settlers and the native peoples of the area, but that's a small quibble. Eskil was fairly well developed, but the other characters not so much. Still, it was an entertaining read. Of my own expectations, I was thinking the story would have progressed farther in time than it did. It is limited to the original landing of the settlers and the first couple of years on the land as they stake their claim, which follows the title "The Landing". Assumptions, assumptions. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series. The eBook was formatted well with no obvious spelling or grammatical errors.

Colin Taber has written a compelling story that kept my interest from start to finish. His characters are interesting and the plot moves forward at an exciting pace. North America conquered, settled, and developed into present day by Vikings is an interesting concept and I'm looking forward to finding out more in the next book in the trilogy.
