About this ebook

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.

I really enjoyed this history laden love story, being fascinated for years by the Norse and Vikings. (Viking means raider - not all Norse were raiders) I found myself entranced by the growing relationship between the main characters. I have one quibble based on history: potatoes were not introduced to Europe when the Vikings sailed, being native to South America.
