Well Gentle Readers, this tale of star-crossed lovers is no Romeo and Juliet.

Stefan, son of a Viking Commander and a kidnapped Scottish woman is finally of age to go to sea with his father where he can seek plunder and riches of his own. He had no idea his first sea voyage might be his last.

Kannak, whose drunkard and abusive father has disappeared, struggles with how to help her mother maintain their independence. Her decision to go to the market and find a husband is interrupted when three Viking ships beach to attack the village.

Neither of them knew Kannak’s decision to hide Stefan from those pursuing the “missing Viking” would lead them down the road it did.  Adventure, fighting, love and loss. A well rounded read to be sure with a twist at the end you will never see coming.

The only thing that was a bit off putting was how the Vikings and the Scots all seemed to use the same jargon. I am no history buff but I didn’t expect Vikings to say things like “wee laddie” and “lass”. All in all however, a good read from a talented writer.

Check it out now and also look into this prolific author’s other works.
