Description

At not quite fifteen, Stefan's father finally let him board the longship, Sja Vinna, to take part in his first Viking raid. Yet, the battle was not at all what he expected, and he soon found himself alone and stranded in Scotland.

Thirteen-year-old Kannak's situation was just as grave. Her father deserted them and the only way to survive, she decided, was to take a husband over her mother's objections. Instead, she found herself hiding a hated Viking, and that wasn't the only problem - someone was plotting to kill the clan's beloved laird.

    Being of Scot & Viking blood, as well as many other tribes, I feared this tale would be another Hollywood/modern era misconception of how these folks & all folks lived in the past. Hallelujah & Praise the Lord!!! This story ain’t like that! And no gratuitous language, sex or violence! I shall purpose to read on of the many tales of Marti. Thanks for a good tale to pass on.

    I truly enjoyed this story. I particularly like that Marti Talbott's books are clean and I wouldn't feel uncomfortable at all having my teenagers read them. This is an easy breezy relaxing story. I look forward to reading more in this series.

    This was a quick read. Not a lot of intrigue here and the fiction was not factual enough to make it believable.
