This romance was pure escapist fun. The characters were reasonably well developed and the story was not as predictable as most trashy romances are. The relationship between the two leads was believable and touching. The narrator carried me along all the way as if she were telling me a grown-up bedtime story. I loved curling up with this during a winter storm.

Predictable, clich?d & sickly sweet
I was looking forward to an interesting historical novel with a bit of romance, but this is basically a very soppy romance (read sex) novel with just the tiniest bit of history as a backdrop.
I don't mind romance but this was so predictable. I should have known when I read that the names of the main characters were Wolf, Dragon and Hawk. Every description of bodies or sex was so clich?d. I very quickly had enough of marbled thighes and granite shoulders - please be a bit more imaginative. The sex scenes, of which there are many, are so contrived and unbelievable that they deserve to be put in a new genre beyond fantasty.
It is a shame that the bones of a such a good story could be clothed in such poor writing.

The problem that I had with this is that I thought the story was very, very good. But as i'm reviewing this as an audio book i have to take the overall end product into account.I felt that the big drawback was with the narrator. She was very mechanical and at some points she sounded like one of those machines that replicates voices. Her characterisations suffered for this and it seemed that she was much more concerned with her diction than instilling emotion into her voice. A very monotone experience. I am now going to go and buy the book to read myself as I know I will enjoy this more.

This was one of my first audible buys and one I have listened to many times over the years. This is pure viking romance, hot and full of adventure, it is bit less predictable then your average romance novel. A pleasure to listen to!!!! The narrator annoyed me at first but I eventually got used to her. The 2nd and 3rd book in this series are also available on audible and are just as enjoyable. I have always hoped that the next 3 of Josie Litton's Akoran Series would be brought out on audiobook format but four years on and I am still waiting and doubt they will be now :(....
