KReview What a page turner After the first few chapters there wasn t another mild moment in this book until the epilogue The constant intensity was exhausting I can t imagine what it would be like to live in a time when death waited around every corner and entire generations ad no knowledge of a life without war Whether they were fighting for their lives land vengeance The Faerie Godmothers Apprentice Wore Green hate or love it was all done with unrestrained passion This is exactlyow I like my books I will forget dozens of other The Sorcerer of the North (Rangers Apprentice houm books I read this year but this one will stick with me like a tattooThe best part Although this book is a work of fiction it is based on real events real wars and real people both Viking and Irish from the 9th century Olaf the White was indeed a Viking Sea King who became King of Dublin in 853 He really did marry the daughter of Aed Finnlaith although Practicing History he mayave been married to someone else first Basing this book on the life of a real Viking King was brilliant It truly blurs the line between fantasy and realitySomething else I appreciated was the absence of an infidelity misunderstanding plotline I know that might sound strange but I get really tired of reading that same old song and dance in so many romance novels In this book there were several threads of betrayal both real and misunderstood including one major event that was predicted earlier in the book by the Druid Mergwin But there was nothing generic about ow these storylines played out Without uestion Olaf and Erin ad their moments of jealousy but the author never fell back on the overly used and totally predictable love triangle I d like to send Some Thing Black her a thank you note for that I d also like to giveer a McClellans Other Story high five for writing some of the best bedroom scenes I ve ever readOne last note when aistorical romance is set as far back as the Middle Ages there is a very good chance that it will include some controversial content A few examples might be 13 yr old girls married to men than twice their age women forced or sold into marriage men exercising their rights in the marriage bed absent willingness or consent from their wives torture abuse war rape slavery etc Obviously these concepts in modern times are considered Cant You Make Them Behave, King George?
