Iron Winter (Northland Book 3)

Price: 3.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the second novel in the series., 16 Jan 2013

Less graphic violence, and far more intriguing. I particularly appreciated the ending that had a haunting echo of the Spanish arrival in the Americas, in our world.

A wonderful drink after you come home from work in the dark and the cold... I've recommended this to several friends, all of whom get hooked on it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing..., 13 Jan 2012
I agree with many of the sentiments expressed by previous reviewers. I enjoyed Stone Spring and eagerly looked forward to reading this book. While the storyline itself is fascinating and the characters quite interesting, I was disgusted by the unnecessary, almost gleeful descriptions of gang rape and mutilation that were sprinkled liberally throughout the book. Agreed, those were savage times, but you don't need to shove excessive gore and cruelty down your readers' throats to make a book exciting or successful. Authors like C.J Cherryh and Iain M. Banks manage quite well without it.
