I am guessing the story is set around late BC and in the Fjords and basically a prince who has disappointed his father is sent to discover what has happened to a mining colony as a last ditch effort to redeeM himself in the eyes of his father.
Upon reaching the colony it is deserted and in order to survive sacrifices have to be made - a terrific read with 'Silence' the enemy!
I got this as a freebie but it is well worth paying for if you enjoy fantasy novels.

I can't recall the last time I found a novel so genuinely thrilling. Not necessarily in a cheap, horror-movie kind of way, but in a deeper, more evocative sense. (By the way, not generally a fan of scary stuff, but I still loved this book - just in case anyone is worried about that.) This is probably because I cared about the characters almost from the start. Both the main and supporting cast are flawed, complex, and human, and their plight is all the more real and gripping because of it.
Regardless of genre preference, you should read this - just prepare to be immersed in a world you know nothing about. The story is grounded in its setting and always makes sense, and yet, I usually had no idea what was going to happen next. It took a few late nights and lunch breaks to find out... The book begins with first-rate suspense, and builds to an epic & romantic clash of good and evil, but then morphs into something more: a provocative exploration of human destiny and spirituality. It's a journey which might raise more questions than it answers. At any rate, the personal and philosophical themes will provide something to ponder for a long while... hopefully long enough for the author to produce another volume!
As I mentioned, I just got the book last night so I'm not finished with it yet but it has been an incredible read thus far. I really enjoy how Anderson has made Dane, the commander of the expedition, analytical and gives us insight into his thought process. He seems as though he is constantly analyzing both people and situations as they unfold. He has forethought, cares for his men, and appears to be stuff leaders are made of yet doesn't seem to enjoy being placed above over others.
Anderson's descriptions of terrain are colorful and vivid. His writing style is to the point and yet lends itself well to thrilling moments. I'm really looking forward to jumping back onto the island and seeing what is lurking beyond the walls.
I can't recommend The Silent Isle enough. It has been a fantastic page turner thus far and I suspect it is only going to get better from where I am in it.
Worth every one of these 5 stars! Awesome job, Mr. Anderson! Literally could not put it down- my kids
are very happy I finished; now I can pay attention to them!
To other readers contemplating the purchase of this book- if you like edge of your seat action, supernatural villains, and
a bit of a love story, you will enjoy reading this!
