Other:They worshiped gods like Odin,Thor, Loki etc. Rune has several "visions".Amma was sort of a medicine woman who saw things.
Time Period:Early middle ages, with a bit of a viking feel.
What I Thought:weird, this is the second viking type book I've read this month!(Silver Sea)It took me a little bit to get into it, but once I did it was great.I loved the mix of viking/middle age and all the adventure.Rune,the king and many of the other characters were great and I loved them.I think that Rune wasn't to proud,didn't pretend to be what he wasn't and that is really admirable, as is he.
Rating & Age:4 stars.13 up.
