I really enjoyed this book. The first time i bought it. I hate when a publisher reissues an old book under a new name, it seems like a cheap attempt to rip off the loyal readers who have followed an author for years.
Good story a favorite author of mine but i feel conned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viking Captive 30 July 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Don't ever thing of taking Bothor's poems out because they enhance the storyline and bring the humorous side of the bantering between the Vikings alive in your storytelling. I as a reader tend to move from one type of story to another. Because, I become weary of shifters, supernatural, romance, fantasy or urban fantasy, vamps, etcetera. An then . . . The call of the maidens and strong Scottish outcry lore me in again. I all ways seem to need a good highland, Viking or outlander to make my day. I seem to seek out you, Sandra Hill. Because I find your storytelling are humorous, with characters that are enjoyable and I find myself laughing out loud and becoming emotional with tears of sadness when called for. So I say again the Viking series is a worthy read.

By Lily - Published on Amazon.com

King Thorwald of Norway has suffered an injury and is in need of medical expertise; his oldest daughter Tyra has been told of Adam the Healer so she has come to take him back to her father whether he wants to go or not and Adam has no intention of leaving his home. He has not been involved in healing the sick since his sister's death two years ago; none of this dissuades Tyra. She is a large warrior woman who doesn't think much of men anyway and since she is quite able to force Adam to go with her, she tosses him over her shoulder and does so. Regardless of Tyra's swaggering, belching and scratching her crotch, Adam is attracted to the Amazon and agrees to help her father but makes a deal with Tyra; if he heals her father, Tyra will have to spend one night naked in his bed with him. Tyra's four younger sisters see the attraction between Adam and Tyra and try to force the relationship furthur because none of them may marry until Tyra weds. Adam's uncle Tykir and his wife Alinor show up and get involved in advice giving to the couple; Alinor joins the sisters and Tykir bands with Bolthor, the worlds'worst skald who is present; Rashid, Adams Arab friend,who keeps pushing Adam to start up a harem, and who has been brought along with Adam to Norway and Rafn,one of the men at the castle who has a personal interest in one of Tyra's sisters. Tyra rebels, she has plans to join the Varangian Guard in Byzantine, even though women have never been accepted to the elite Guard. Add four orphans to the mix,especially the oldest, Alrek,a ten year old accident waiting to happen who have decided Adam is their miracle rescuer. To say Adam feels like his life is out of control is an understatement. This is a light-hearted book, an easy read and enjoyable.

The story was fun. I've read others of Sandra's modern'ish Viking stories & have enjoyed them. This particular one, however, dragged on a bit too long. I didn't think Tyra needed to sail away to Byzantium to complete the saga. At that point, for me, it went from a fun romp to a bit too ridiculous. But that's just my opinion.
4.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed the book and loved the humerous love story 21 Oct. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed the book and loved the humerous love story. Sandra Hill has a magic story telling ability and you will enjoy the tale and the included humour. I agree with the sentiments regarding the re-release of the book. Either the authoress must include the previous title in the new title or Amazon should ensure that somehow their computer sysytem links the two books so that past orders are highlighted.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Viking's Captive - Sandra Hill 18 Jun. 2011

Once again, another humorous, spell binding tale delivered by a very talented Sandra Hill. If you love Viking stories, laughter, mouth gaping, head shaking reading, this is the book for you!

Ms. Hill created another masterpiece with real life dilemmas, interesting and funny solutions. The characters are real and believable, you can identify with their feelings and emotions. You feel what they feel. The humor is belly rumbling funny.

Anyone who is a fan of Ms. Hill will find this tale intertwined with previous characters, a must have for people who like to tie their stories together all up into a nice little package.
