"I absolutely LOVED this book! The first chapter of this book might as well have reached out and grabbed me by the neck, it sucked me in so well! This was my first Adrienne Young read and let me tell you, it absolutely will not be my last. If you are looking for an action packed read with some light romance, or just a fan of Viking anything, this book is for you and I highly recommend it! #vikings #action_packed #slowburnromance #enemiestolovers #fightforsurvival "
"This book was amazing! I read it in 2 days. A total page turner 😍"
"The story was really good but I found I was getting frustrated with Iri and how preachy he sounded, I especially got frustrated near the end when Eelyn gave him way more credit than he deserved considering how he did absolutely nothing. He was preaching about how Aska and Riki are the same to Eelyn yet is willing to help the Riki kill the Aska in war, willing to help them kill his old family, friends and clan mates. "
"If you like internal struggle mixed with epic battle scenes. This this is the book for you. Adrienne Young does an amazing job at describing characters so that you can feel, see and hear what they are. "
