5.0 out of 5 stars Real vikings!, 27 Oct 2007
By 
This review is from: Feasting the Wolf (Paperback)
Well, this is just a great book. Young Ketil and his friend Ottar join the great viking warband expecting excitment, glory, and to come back heroes. So will their friendship survive when they find themselves digging ditches, being bullied and given all the worst jobs?

You'd think Susan Price had just spent a year marauding with the Great Viking Army herself - she seems to know all the smells and sensations and attititudes of mind. Exciting, touching, vivid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great viking book for young boys (and adults too!), 9 Feb 2012
This review is from: Feasting the Wolf (Paperback)
A very good portrayal of Viking life - very suitable for age 10+. Enjoyed it even though I'm an adult. A tale of two best friends growing up on the Shetland Islands off the northern coast of Britain during the dark ages. Their Viking ancestors settled on the island many years ago yet Viking exploration and raiding is still a major attraction to one of the two friends. Eventually the other is persuaded away from his farming family on an adventure with a local raiding ship that passed by on its way to help the invasion into England. Yet even when they land on foreign soil difficulties and differences begin to split their relationship apart as both seek respect and acceptance in a world where it is only gaining by earning honour in battle or death.
