No real meat to the story felt rushed and ended with nothing of substance really taking place.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. Way too much sailing information. Also, for some reason neither he nor his editors know what an adverb is. "Get up quick" instead of quickly. This is really, really basic grammar. So, I am surprised that he does this all the way through the book.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
The mix of cultures and history of Ireland is the most interesting. The endless technical description of the sailing details is the most distracting, so much so, that the penultimate scene is robbed of much of its excitement by meandering descriptions of the nautical decisions of the pro- and ant- tagonists.
What does Shaun Grindell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
A good read without the overly dramatic inflection reads some narrators do.
Do you think Raider’s Wake: A Novel of Viking Age Ireland needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, he left cliffhangers at the end, but please get let him get his elementary school grammar fixed and keep the story like the first novels....less sailing information.
Latest in a wonderful series. Well written and narrated. Where will the Norsemen go next? Keep 'em coming James.
