This is a continuation of the story started in Viking Sword Saxon Shieldand follows along with the same gusto and historical aspects. It is very well researched and the details helps to bring the book to life. The story continues the journeys begun in the first book, returning us to General Ealdoman Byrhtnoth, Princess Catherine and Eddie. His quest, involving magic and myth is wonderful and the dastardly Vikings are all too real and horrific.
I notice that is book is being sold under the young adult category, and I feel that is fair. However, I believe adults will enjoy this just as they enjoy other young adult authors. It does not offend and it educates, it is gently romantic and vivid. The author's obvious passion makes it a joy to read.
