Not to mention the heart and soul that went into each character. Apparently the reader revisits characters from the previous novels which would have been a lovely feature had I read the previous novels and thus had a relationship with them already. That being said, I don’t think there was a single character I didn’t like or appreciate for whatever reason. I mean, Rorik could be obnoxious but I think that was the point.
Honestly, I didn’t expect much from this novel. It sounded mildly interesting when I requested it but never expected the marvel I received. If you are looking for a great historical romance involving Viking and such, this is definitely a must read.
